A little snack dipped in red sauce,

A rare delicacy along with some thyme.

She picking up the fingers one by one,

Here comes ” Green witch’s meal time”.

Random Urdu Poem 50: Sum total of Love?

amorous-3321873__340

चश्मे तर और शिकस्ता दिल मेरा
ये मेरी मोहब्बत का हिसाब है
इतना नीचे गिरा हूँ इश्क़ में मैं
ये मेरी मोहब्बत का फ़राज़ है

The crying eyes and the broken heart                                  This is the sum total of my love

I have stooped so low in my love for you                                This is the height of my love.

Random Urdu Poem 48: What is happening?

fire-2060693__340

ज़िन्दगी से बेफिक्र हैं, बेज़ार भी हैं ।
कुछ टूटे हैं हौसले, कुछ बरक़रार भी हैं ।।
आंखें तकती हैं, झपकती है, समझती हैं, मचलती भी है।
थमे तो हैं कदम, मगर ये चलने हार भी हैं।।

I don’t give a damn what life brings and yet I am tormented by it.

My courage is gone and yet sometimes I feel motivated to live.

These eyes, they stare, they blink, they understand and they they let go.

My legs are tired and yet they are always ready to go.

Identity revisited

woman-565127__340

 

In shadows and in sparkles,

In dreams and in so called real world,

Does it ever cross your mind,

How your intimate inner space is curled.

 

Where lies the truth you have been seeking,

Where does the lies in corner of your heart breathe?

How far does your inner demons can reach,

How often does the dead divine emotions seethe.

 

In person you are just flash and bones,

In perspective a wandering soul,

In retrospect, A sin of the first humans,

In concept a spirit riding a skeleton ghoul.

 

Your wear a face, A mask unknown,

     A bane or boon residing in you

A God,

A Sage,

A King,

A Man,

Tell me who you’re,

When no one is watching you ?
