Contradictions

We were not to be, still, we were.

When we are suppose to be,

But, we won't.

Contradictions are consuming,

Duality, a drop of perfume to dab,

When rosebuds are still blooming.

The shade to a shadow

Payal as you say;

An english version

Whenever witnessed,
The wars fought,
With an intense Sunshine,
The saving grace of light,
I saw in myself, 'the self'
Becoming a shade to a shadow!

Jab bhee dhoop say lardtay dekha hai,
Bachtey dekha hai,
Mainey khud mai, khud ko
eik par-chhaahyaa hotay dekha hai.

Alvidaa

Hawa ki nazrazgi khatam ho chuki hai,
Na hee ab uski sard, berukhi hai,
Tham chuka hai, samaa,
Jheel, sa,
ab eik aadh lautatee lahar, mano,
Kabhi na aanay ko,
aakhiri baar hontho say chhooh ker
Alvidaa keh jaatee hai!

The good bye kiss

Air was not as furious,
She had been brushed away,
She was barely touching the surface,
The polar winds had withdrawn,
It was almost calm, and collected at the lake,
Waves too, had settled away,
The scant ripples
Were, the goodbye kisses.

Transitions

A designed roof, fans away
my hollow floating dreams,
When, I sit relaxed,
Sipping my skimmed mind,
Waiting, for the soaked almonds
At the end,
I stand on my bare feet,
Eyes closed,
Feeling,
The mosaic,
The Italian marble patterns
Imprinted, long ago,
I have lived in those sea side stone caves,
Engraved.

The checkmate

The sand, is mixed with the dust,
Dust is ready to dissolve,
The rainshower
Shall blemish the soil,
Shall filter herself out,
To flow away, black and white,
Leaving behind, a grey mess,
The checkmate, calls,
To play a thunderous
Game of chess!

Not so obvious

He told me,
'If you are looking for a mystery
In my eyes,
It is there,
Try!
Though
The truth is never obvious,
It only beats around the bush,
They call it a bundle
Of veins and arteries,
I breathe it often,
Sometimes it shines in my eyes.
Search it, and you may find.
The not so obvious,
Truth,'
