Light and Dance

Light dancing through the window
wakes me up to another day?

to be passed in full consciousness
of the seconds the minutes the hours?
the day?sublime.

I learn helplessness, I lose productivity,
the consciousness of the ticking clock gulps me.
I forget what is timeless,
what is the color of the day;
the only things I produce
are digestive enzymes and semen.
Even the thoughts have turned into reminiscence.

I welcome the night.
The night that escapes the day
and put me to sleep, not beyond clockwork
as the hourly gongs pierce my skull,
the appreciation of the morning alarm
increases as the night draws close.
But the minutes and the seconds dance
in the production house of my dreams.

I travel in a train
sitting beside my pretty child,
my sweet one, I hold her hand
and come down innumerable steps.

In dreams we hold hands in the crowd.

We dance like fireflies
we dance till the last muscle burn out
and she falls down before me,
I?m still strong and young,
I carry her in my arms
to a place where we can fly.

But I must fly alone.
This poem starts the countdown
from 30, and I?ll be gone
leaving behind the hatred for the day
and submission into the night
my pretty child, my sweet one.
The hourly gongs sometimes startles
me in the morning I?m just awake
shaking dreams from my hair
writing the poem.

    Khud-bakhud chorr gaye hain to chalo theek hua, Itne ehbaab kahan hum se sambhaale jaatey, Hum bhi ghaalib ki tarah kuucha-e-jaana se, Naa nikalte to kisi roz nikaale jaatey.. … The post Khud-bakhud chorr gaye hain to chalo theek hua.. appeared first on Ranjish.com.
  • Apne honton pe sajana chahta hoon.. January 20, 2017
    Apne honton pe sajana chahta hoon, Aa tujhe main gungunaana chahta hoon, Koi aansuu tere daaman pr giraa kar, Boond ko moti banaana chahta hoon, Thak geya main karte karte yaad tujh ko, Ab tujhe main yaad aana chahta hoon, Chhaa raha hai sari bassti main andhera, Roshni ko, ghar jalaana chahta hoon, Aakhri hichki […]
  • Ab bhala chorr ke ghar kya karte.. January 20, 2017
    Ab bhala chorr ke ghar kya karte, Shaam ke waqt safar kya karte, Teri masrufiyaten jante hain, Apne aanay ki khabar kya karte, Jab sitaare hi nahin mil paaye, Le ke hum shamss-o-qamar kya karte, Woh musafir hi khuli dhoop ka tha, Saaye phailaa ke shajar kya karte, Khaak hi awwal o aakhir thehri, Kar […]

    Pyar ka pehla khat likhne main waqt to lagta hai, Naye parindon ko urrne main waqt to lagta hai, Jism ki baat nahin thi un ke dil tak jana tha, Lambi doori tayy karne main waqt to lagta hai, Gaanth agar lag jaye to phir rishte hon ya ddori, Laakh karen koshish, khulne main waqt […]

    Ranjish hi sahi, dil hi dukhaane ke liye aaa, Aaa phir se mujhe chorr ke jaane ke liye aaa, Kuch to mere pindar-e-mohabbat ka bharam rakh, Tu bhi to kabhi mujh ko manaane ke liye aaa, Pehle se marasim na sahi phir bhi kabhi to, Rasm-o-raaah-e-duniyaaa hi nibhaane ke liye aaa, Kis kis ko batayen […]

    Tu mujh ko jo is sheher main laya nahin hota, Main be-saro-samaan kabhi ruswaa nahin hota, Us ki to yeh aadat hai kissi ka nahin hota, Phir is main ajab kya ke hamara nahin hota, Kuch pairr bhi be-faiz hain is rahguzar main, Kuch dhoop bhi aesi hai ke saaya nahin hota, Khawbon main jo […]

    Koi hindu, koi muslim, koi isaayi hai, Sab ne insaan na bann’ne ki qasam khayi hai, teen-chothaayi se zeyada hain jo abaadi main, Un ke hi vaastay har bhook hai, mehengaayi hai, Sirf mansoobon main mausam ke badalte hain mizaaj, Sirf takreeren batati hain bahaar ayi hai..… The post Koi hindu, koi muslim, koi isaayi […]

    Tamaam umar jale aur raushni nahin ki, Yeh zindagi hai to phir hum ne zindagi nahin ki, Sitam to yeh hai ke mere khilaaf bolte hain, Woh log jin se kabhi main ne baat bhi nahin ki, Jo dil main aata geya sidq-e-dill se likhta geya, Duaayen maangi hain main ne to shayari nahin ki, […]
