between

escaping the wrath
of getting battered
by the storm,
everything disastrously,
crumbling
and falling apart,
like the glass shards
of a kaleidoscope,
mercilessly
shattered to bits
on the ground;

and

the vision
of the illusory
rainbow during
the peak
of that storm,
personified
by your short
but eventful
presence,
in colours beyond
the scope,
of perceivable
artistic canvases,

an encore,
is what the heart
yearns for,
inspite of all
the inflicted torments,
brought by
the raging storm,
your brief
presence then,
still lingers,
over all
the other
bruised memories,
much like
a healing balm.

you can’t
lose
someone
you never
had,

yet
it so often
feels
like
that,

a breath
which
invisibly
filled
the lungs,

but
left
a vacuum
when
exhaled.

dissolve me
in your ink
that you
bleed onto
paper,

mix me with
those waiting
colors
in the palette
you hold,

knead me
into the clay
that gets molded
into a worthy shape
by your hands,

as a speck
of soluble
dust
i fly restlessly
here and there,

at least let
my resting place be
amongst
a manifestation
of your art.

chnd kadamon ke the
bas faasle baaki,

jo nazron ne kaha tha
dheere dheere honge kum,

par milne se pehle hi
gumshuda ho gaye tum,

ab aankhon se yakeen
uth gaya hai hamara,

jo dikhta nahin hai
uske hone aur choone ka ehsaas,

ab hawa ke jhonkon mein hi
doondh lete hain hum.

only a few steps
were left
as the distance
of separation
between us,

the eyes
had assured
slowly these
would get covered,

but before that
could happen
you just
disappeared,

and so did
my trust
in these eyes
of mine,

now alone
as i walk
without you
in sight,

i imagine
your presence
your touch
in the breeze
that gently brushes by.

Knights
no longer
come in shining
armours,

they now come
disguised
independent
of gender,

as numerous
maskless faces
with
unprotected hearts,

appearances
similar
to you
and me,

fighting life’s
upheavals
yet standing
steadfast,

hiding their pain
while lending
a smile
to loved ones,

giving meaning
by acting silently
to what the
the wise preach,

yet followed
by none
and following
no one,

the Knights
that live
unpretentious
lives,

but hold boldly
the pretence
that everything
is all right,

even when
their own
hearts
secretly bleed,

for the pain
borne
by another’s
heart,

Knights
no longer
come in shining
armours,

look around
consciously
with
open eyes,

you’ll
find many
that will
inspire you,

to discover
the limitlessness,
of your own being
and of your own heart.

in dreams
so often
i do get
the opportunity,

to live an
unfulfilled
but desired
reality,

and in
them only
i get chased
by all the monsters,

that live within
the undisclosed
precincts
of my mind,

a blessing
or a curse
i have  often
debated,

but each time
you appear
in either
guise,

i wake up
a winner
in every
right.

thanks
to your
continuing
ignorance,

of all the
sumptuous
nutritional
ingredients,
with carefully
crafted
delectable
toppings,
presented
with equally
innovative
platings,

and my
continuing
shameless
persistence,

in repeatedly
tabling
with varied
recipes,
the only dish
i seem
to know
how to cook,

i may finally
have won,
the quintessential battle
between love and the ego.
