How Have You Been

When I see you…

Photo by h.koppdelaney I followed your trace in this city thinking about how lonely you felt without me I visited all the places in your photos everything was so familiar except the lack of you Would you appear all of a sudden in the cafe around the corner of a nice pattern I would greet you if so with a hearty smile and talk with you about our lives for a while How eager am I to meet you just…

Doves fly so high

Doves fly so high

Yulia, Yulia you and I

Many jewels your smile

But your eyes sad as the sky

I’m just compelled to write a song

So that you never cry

Only my voice deeply cries

 Doves fly so high, clouds make a way, away

Going so far, far away today

Soon rivers and seas will see as they hear

There is no fear singing your song

That to you only belongs

And among the crowds sounds mellow now

Love And Separation

Through good times and bad?

Photo by h.koppdelaney

It is believed marriages are made in heaven
If it breaks then for sure it is planned in hell

He was a persona of poise and dignity
She was an epitome of grace and beauty

It was a chance encounter that made them
come across face to face
The two stood silent & stared at each other
While totally forgetting one another

He was drawn to her by her enchanting beauty
And she was…

The Attitudes

Have an optimistic attitude!

Treating wife as a lover makes life so romantic
Treating children like friends brings parents so close

Worshipping parents like God makes life so sacred
Treating friends as siblings make the relationship so special

Taking care of the sick and destitute gives so much solace
Feeding the hungry beggar to the brim make him bless wholeheartedly

Helping the needy and downtrodden…

Hungry Angels

Harsh words burn one within.

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Tonight I will not sleep
I will call you in my eyes.

My hands were trembling
when I opened the book.
Words you uttered long back
tumbled out ashen-faced.
I started burning inside.

Where did we take a wrong turn?
The oven had baked a burnt-out
face. They are altering genes.
Suddenly it is going to start
a riot among the gods,
a pure kill.

Frightened I move in circles around

सबूत है

इन्हें मिटाना तो अब मुश्किल है….

Photo by h.koppdelaney

ये दर्द
सबूत है मेरे प्यार का
मैं इसे मिटा नहीं सका
लाख कोशिश करी
यादें ज़हन से हटा नहीं सका

ये वो बातें हैं जो मेरे दिल की गहराईयों में बसी हैं
दुनिया की सबसे प्यारी आवाज़
उस लड़की की ही हँसी है

पर वो चली गई है फिर न कभी आने के लिए
और आज तक मैं खुद को ये बात
ठीक से बता नहीं सका

मैंने रोना छोड़ दिया है
पर तड़प ये जाती नहीं
उसके नशे की ख़ुमारी है
तलब ये जाती नहीं
लोग मुझसे यहाँ…

Deceived Woman

You broke my heart!

Photo by h.koppdelaney

you always said “we’re meant to be”
forgot to say “love is not free”
I was the shadow of your sins
you broke my heart without tears

in every man I found you
it sounds awful, but it was true
you didn’t want to implicate yourself
you coming off as innocent

my life was an adventure for the two of us
but why I felt sorry for disappointment in your eyes
I carved your name so…
