InevitableThe time may come, but its not now;Let the silence dwellFor it grows in you if love is trueAnd unleashes in you a dancing hellSo let her void take a pre-dance bowThe time may come, but its not nowWhy should my love be measured and told?For its not a lie that needs to be soldAnd the truth is known by the scent it makesSo let it take whatever it takesMy cries, My sighs, She'll understandI don't know "when?" and I don't care "how?"The time WILL come, though its not now...
The SymphonyYou naïve little girl!You, surrounded by the sands of silenceWielding the weight of the worldWeighing all that's left of an ocean that once existedBut the world is twisted!For the echoes of voices once madeAnd the memories of moonlight and shadeHave no use of your untainted silenceO naïve little girl!These deserts of silence have diedWhenever a willing soul has triedThe oceans of love are revived againWith one tear of joy that was cried
Raahain aur RaahbarMujhko meri hi baaton main Rub mil gayaTeray aanay say mujhko wo sub mil gayaJisko dhoonda main nay shaahkaron main thaWo chupa sur jo saazon k taaron main thaJiska jalwa chupa sub nazaaron main thaWo jo choota zameen ta hadood-e-falakWo samandar jo simta kinaaron main thaSuch chupa zindagi k isharon main thaSuch ko such jan'nay ka sabab mil gayaMujhko meri hi baton main Rub mil gayaJeenay marnay ka mujh ko adab mil gayaNoor main dhoondta reh gaya main "klaam"Aur main parh na saka ja bja uska naamMeri aql-o-khirad bs hui yun tmamK palkain jhukaye guzartay thay dinAur palkain jhukaye guzarti thi shamMujh ko tum lay k aaye ho janib-e-bamJispay main nay kia jo talab, mil gayaMujhko meri hi baton main Rub mil gaya
Jawaab (The Answer)Ye log to mujh say poochtay hainKiun chehra tera shaad nahi?Jo dil Khuda ka ghar tha kabhiWo dil ab kiun aabaad nahi?In logon ko kya batlaun!Jub paani khoon say sasta thaUss daur main main bhi hansta thaAb hansna mujh ko yaad nahi
Jub din bhi ghor andhair na thayAur shehnai main sog na thaJub pyaar har ik ka shaiwa thaAur Ishq dilon ka rog na thaAur ik naag k roop main jubIk naam mujhay na dasta thaUss daur main main bhi hansta thaJub jeena paiham jog na tha
Bachpan ki wo sub yaadainWo nanhay munnay khwab sabhiWo parwaz apni taaron takWo moti zer-e-aab sabhiAur dunya bhar ka baar nahiJub kaandhon par bs "basta" thaUss daur main main bhi hansta thaJub sachay thay ye saraab sabhi
Tub jeevan khoon main daurta thaAb saans bhi laina mushkil hayTub khushiyaan chaaron janib theenAb ghum say ghayal bismil hayAur honton ki muskaan talakIk seedha saada rasta thaUss daur main main bhi hansta thaAb tukray tukray ik dil hay
GhazalWith demons, I dwell, I'm still hereAnother year in Hell, I'm still hereTime flows like streams with your happy dreamsBut in pain, it's like well, I'm still hereYou keep repeating: "Why don't you ask?"I say: "Why don't you tell? I'm still here"To the fragrant blues yonder they all have flownWith my own earthly smell, I'm still hereHer tower is tall, and my methods are frailJust a hunchback with a bell, I'm still hereI have no excuse, what else can I say?I was under a spell, I'm still hereOblivious and lost, out on the roadIn search of la belle, I'm still hereI made it myself, what "freedom", What "fight"?In My prison, my cell; I'm still hereI was robbed in the daylight in front of the MayorWith nothing to sell, I'm still hereWhy did your anger turn to silence?Please come back and yell, I'm still here
SonnetI laughed, I smiled, but I always knewThat I hide behind many veils of deceitEach veil with a thickness of six thousand feetEach veil is opaque but somehow see-throughAnd it gives me, of world, a distorted viewThe paper-thin world, my sweat and this heatWhen you are so far, all is incompleteAnother sad day I have lived without youMaybe someday, I'll be a power that beAnd you will be here, right here in my armsMaybe someday, this world just might seeThat their wars were fought on worthless alarmsOr maybe someday, together we'll fleeAway from this world, away from all harms
A New ToyRemember, when you buyA new toy?Like a laptopOr a carOr an android phoneRemember, how at firstYou long to hear it ring?To feel the clarity in its ringtone?And the agonizing uneaseWhen you feel it "too far"And the fearOh the fear in your eyesWhen you wake up at nightsIt makes you standRight out of your bedWhen you don't find, in your handThe product you bought:Your precious new toy
Remember, how at firstYou loved itYou lived itAnd as time goes byYou are sure it is thereRight there by your sideYou take it for grantedYou play with it lessYou look at it lesserAfter all this timeYou remember how it wasFun at the startJust likeA human Heart
