Spaces of Time

I think about you
And make faces in the air
Are you alive
Or am dreaming a lot
May be one day
I will come out of the dream
But I don't want to
I wish it be to true
And we be
In the same spaces of time

I saw a dream
I wished it were true
And there came you
You're just a thought
Sometimes a shadow
Are you a face

I try to believe
That stories can have
A happily ever after
Reality is blurred
People often have
Just false hopes

I get confused
Between dreams and memories
Are both unreal
I kept a stone
If I see it closely
It thumps sometimes

कोरा कागज़

एक कोरे कागज़ का एकाकीपन 
बस वही चाहिये 
एक नयी नज़्म लिखने के लिये।

लिखना तो और भी बहुत है 
कुछ सपनें, कुछ अरमान,
कुछ चाहत, औ कुछ दुयाएँ,
पर कोरा कागज़ नहीं बचा। 

सबमें एक मिलावट आ गयी है,
खयालों में, औ सवालों में भी,
सब मिलावट के साथ ही
कागज़ पर बिखरे पड़े हैं। 

कुछ कागज़ों पर से निशाँ 
मिटा नहीं सकते हम 
और कोरा कागज़... वो कहीं नहीं है।

I & You

When I am not with you 
I often dream of you 
And those dreams are such beauty
As perfect as a fairy tale.

I dream of two happy souls
Contently smiling.
Their hands are clutched
And shoulders leaned.

I dream of me sitting on your lap
My hands around your neck
And you reading to me
My favourite poetry.

I dream of moments
When we just know
That love suffice
And rest of the world fades.

I dream of those things
You say with your eyes
And then we look somewhere far
Silently savouring the moment.

I dream of times
When I see you after long
And hug you the tightest hug ever
And never let you go again.

I dream the days
When we travel the world
Measure every inch on this earth

I dream of starry nights
When we lie on the terrace
Talking endlessly
And loving.


And when I see YOU,
These beautiful dreams just shatter
Leaving me alone with
A grim Reality.
