POETRY: Call at the Twilight

Poetry

Past a night of Cimmerian gloom In one early winter Twilight Coming from myriad minarets of the city, I heard One euphonious call; “As salatu Khayrum minan nawm”  (Prayer is better than sleep). Ah, the melodious invitation That voice, enrapturing Threw wide open the locked dormitory door Defying the frozen ghostly winds Tiptoeing; to escape the sight of my dormitory’s ...

POETRY: Endeavour

Poetry

The unknown Indian follows an uneven course, Always gets into doubt and remorse, For the ethnic wish to come true, It’s me but not you… Life at the valleys or backwaters at discourse, One still and another in a silent pose, Turbulent rays withstand the hope, Say either you or me or say, It is me but not you… The ...

POETRY: Spring of My Life

Poetry

The breeze unbuttoned the tiredness of the day As I sat on the park bench, watching our children play Their eyes glistered just like the rays of the sun on the evening clouds A certain joy disturbed my heart, something that I had never allowed The morning begun with my thoughts of you Brushed aside by the sky so blue ...

POETRY: Yours No More

Poetry

What if things didn’t fall in their right place? What if every reason for love I have fails What if future promises nothing? My hand holds truths and lies Believing one will deny other Choosing lie is how I choose you Picking truth will send you away. Living the battle of emotions, Confused, my heart questions Will you pick me ...

Someday I will tell our kids The story of how we met How the breeze from the mountains moved into the city And the sun could never again set How you took the backseats in class And how I would jump to the front ones I would tell how shy you were to ask me out I would tell our ...

POETRY: Love-O-Mania Blues

Poetry

My happiness is fading away, Our relationship is turning sour. Are the hurdles going to stay ? Coz I don’t wanna fight anymore. You said, I’m never gonna leave your side, But I can sense the distance, unspoken yet wide. You said you love me, was it true ? Or maybe I believed your lie, haven’t got a clue. Everyone ...

Poetry

I never have a dream come true, Till the day that I found you. Tell me what you feel, what you gonna do, I’ll be there for you, no matter what you do. You are my sun, you are my moon, You are my song, you are my tune. If you are with me, I don’t want anyone else, Coz ...

POETRY: I Bid Thee Goodbye

Poetry

No, I don’t want to leave This town, These streets covered in the canopy. Of pine and fir And the breeze so cold which carries stories untold Water so clear, which to all is dear. My mom and friends here I must leave behind in the fear of another calamity, Until I come back from the City. O Lord of ...
