Don’t Hide [ #OctPoWriMo day 2]


Dark are the curves and corners of soul,
Oh words, please show up tonight;

New metaphors are debating my worth
Other devices of poetry are shying away,
Tonight my heart seek some blank space;

Hear my unsaid songs , come sit with me a while
Invite your friends along , lets make a nice little post,
Dreams and past , are both on table for you,
Evening has arrived, please grace my home now.

The untold poem

The words played on my tongue
Yet the lips refused to move;
The poem has chosen its side
And deserted me without any care.

The lines played in my head
Amd the images flashed in eyes
But the poem stayed quiet
And stared with indifference.

When tears lined on my cheek,
The poem spoke to my heart;
They will not undersyand,
Keep me hidden,will you please.

I cried a little more that night
the poem had choked all emotions
That the heart wished to share
Leaving behind a Restless trail ..

wo ( #hindi poem)

wo diwaani thi ..
baaton ki , sard raaton ki ,
jazbaaton ki , yaadon ki ..

wo pagli si thi,
thodi jhalli bhi ,
pyaar me , kavita ke izhaar me…

wo jaado thi ..
mutthi me kaid ek dhadkan bhi,
chalakta hua aansoo , barasta hua saawan bhi ..

wo pyaas thi
mere dil ki , aas thi jannat ki,
dhundlaa sa aakah bhi ..

wo ek taara thi ,
banayi to thi mere sahejne ko , sametne ko,
main bas shabdon me hi usko rakh paaya ..


Joie de vivre

“Be happy”,
that’s what he said
on the roads of parting
“stay happy my friend”.

“how do i”,
i wondered aloud
and before i could ask,
he was no where to be found.

“But I will”
was all i could promise
knowing if i did not,
he will never be at ease.

Years have passed
times took different turns
but to be happy always
i tried best from my end.

Often when i was at loss
of reasons or people to smile
i smiled at the mirror
planting the smile in ym eyes.

“Its not something outside”
i realized, even though late
“that makes you love your life.
But the desire to have it that way”

“I am happy”
I told you in dreams one day
“and i know you too might be,
you are bound to get,what you gave”

And that is the secret
for the joyous life i made
to be happy, to make others so
nothing difficult for you to create.

Of head and heart

Learned first about Pantoum here and found it a good challenge to try ..

In the dead silent night
draping darkness around
“what’s going wrong in life”
i sit and wonder this aloud;

draping darkness around
i try to listen to my heart
i sit and wonder this aloud
“this better doesn’t last”

i try to listen to my heart
it has been silent for long
“this better doesn’t last”
reasons are always wrong.

it has been silent for long
this battle of heart and head
reasons are always wrong
no matter what happens in end.

this battle of heart and head
“that’s what going wrong in life”
no matter what happens in end,
In the dead silent night.

A letter from angel !

I knew you not more than your name

guess,even  for you it was the same;

yet you sent for me a letter that day

in times when fashion is to call or  mail.

Life was not treating me great, you knew

was it reason enough for that letter from you ?

With what authority did you decide to write

all those harsh realities and the inspiring lines ?

Was it your words or the faith you instilled in me

that i cleared all hurdles that came into being !

To that letter and you, i will forever owe

my first success, my pride for my first job.

You were the angel to me,not just that day

but every time i needed,your words were there.

all thanks to the letter you wrote to me

and the fact that it was well responded.
