Forever a Lie

Every forever is a lie
It only lasts until the next goodbye
Dreams are never meant to matter
Like fragile glass waiting to shatter

Hopes never should be held high
They’ll drown you but still leave you dry
Life is a puzzle an endless game
You think you own it but it won’t tame
Love is just a breathless sigh
It’ll be gone in the blink of an eye
And when you think you’ve mastered it all
It’ll all end up in an ungraceful fall
Just keep your head high
Through the final goodbye
Don’t you say forever you will try
As every forever is a lie

Shadow

You are my reflection
On the other side of the wall
A walking perfection
Never letting me fall

In this world of deception
Million shadows on the wall
It is my perception
You are better than all

You are my life's fascination
I wish the time could stall
And you would look my direction
Like you could hear me call

It is a divine connection
Separating us from all
Life wouldn't be an imperfection
Had there been no wall

Taking with me our recollection
These memories I would recall
I sadly leave the comfort of your affection
But you will always be my shadow on the wall

The Extra Mile


To spend some stolen moments with you,
I wish I could walk that extra mile
But I'm bound by promises too good to be true
So forgive me if I'm here just for a while

Serendipity was at play the moment we met
With your playful talks you made me smile
There is no moment with you that I'd ever regret
So let me be with you, love just for a while

You form my daydreams, its magic that I feel
You voice, it envelops me in a loving embrace
Every moment with you keeps flashing like a reel
Every night all I wish to see, is your loving face

I wish I could walk that extra mile
As being with you is at stake
And when I reach you, I'd long for a smile
We'd embark on journey we wish to partake

The Calling

Tried my hand at many a thing
But nothing to perfection did I bring
Is there no quality of mine?
Which would bring my name to shine


With heart and passion for them I toil
But all the arts from me recoil
There is nothing that ever means to stay
Wish I had a calling, if I may


I’m nothing but merely a part of a throng
All this fighting never made me strong
Trying to justify why I was born
It breaks me to pieces, I feel so torn


Wondering since the very first day
Am I nothing but a piece of clay?
If so, there is nothing more that I desire
Than to be hardened by this life of fire


I wish to ask again, if I may
What’s my calling, tell me I pray
Would I rather paint or dance or write or pray
Or should I just not bother and get on with the day

Escape

 Some million miles away on lonely pathways
Through clear blue skies and thunders grey
Lies a place enchanted touched by golden rays
There under the open skies in the grass I lay

Watching the clouds uncurl into mystic shapes
Into the wind I blow a solitary grass blade
Admiring the sky turning into varied shades
I reminisce about the life to which farewell I bade

Ever so pure untouched landscape
At the beauty of which I forever gape
I fall from the edge of this lonesome cape
Its all in my mind, this beautiful escape

Final Goodbye


When was our love born, it seems like just yesterday
But its been ages since our love saw the light of the day
In these dark hours I never thought this trust would sway
It's an everlasting night and my love you are so far away

Under the starry night sky, recollecting memories I lay
wondering where our love went, was it not meant to stay
Were the millions of miles the reasons for it to fade away
Or the time we never spent together turned it out this way

You were my sunlight but this has been a cloudy day
Even the sun stopped shining as we both looked away
Nights are cold and dark, we have to escape them someday
Should I be waiting or I find another sun to warm my day

I would leave now, but I would still miss you on a rainy day
I hope you find someone who would push the clouds away
I died the day you left me but I'd be born again some day
But I won't return so this is the final goodbye that I must say

प्रतिरूप


साँझ हुई जब मद्धम सी
कोमल होंठों
पर पिघल गई,
स्वर्ण किरणे उन चंद लम्हों की

निशा आई जब धीमे पाँव
चंचल नैनो में कैद हुई,
रेशम सी किरणे निद्रा की

भोर हुई जब उजली सी
हंसी में लिपटी मिश्री घुली
कोयल की कूकती बोली सी

तुझे देख अपने
प्रतिरूप,
हृदय पिघला, रोम रोम खिला 
बन गई
तुम रोशिनी मेरे स्वप्नों की
