HeartBEATS11

Dil mein koi sui si chubhi aaj, meri aankh bhar aayi hain,

Karwat lekar dekha maine, meri dost sirf tanhai hain……….

Arzoo hoti nahi muqammal, meri iss jahan mein,

Der se hi sahi ye baat, mujhe aaj samjh mein aayi hain

Karwat lekar dekha maine, meri dost sirf tanhai hain……….

Milte gaye qaffile, har mod, dost bante gaye.

Fir kyu Aftaab hokar bhi, humne andhero mein jagah paayi hain.

Maana hummein reh-shumari ki khubiyaan nahi,

Humne to rooh-e-pak main saari umar gavai hain,

Karwat lekar dekha maine, meri dost sirf tanhai hain……….

Sooraj k saamne hum, kuch feeke pad gaye lekin,

Alfazo se apne humne bhi, kai baar aag lagai hain,

Dua-e-walida karti thi roshan taqdeer meri,

Apne hi haathon humne, wo jane kahan gumai hain.

Karwat lekar dekha maine, meri dost sirf tanhai hain

ADeLe

 

She is probably the best song writer of our age. Oh I love you, ADELE so much. You are as beautiful as a reverie.

 

Quotes by Adele:

“I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.”

“The focus on my appearance has really surprised me. I’ve always been a size 14 to 16, I don’t care about clothes, I’d rather spend my money on cigarettes and booze.”

“Sometimes it lasts in love, But sometimes it hurts instead.”

“I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

SILENCE SEEKER

GREW (2)

Sometimes I try to dart away from the ductility of time and restraining juxtapose.

How do I try?

I usually take long drives, alone through roads, mostly reticent, begetting the unifying peace and bliss. A drive that is imperative and subtle but immensely cathartic.

I had one yesterday, down a quite path with my favorite music to nurture me. For those who have this comfort, it’s like a silent exclamation in an unusual Narnia. Whenever I do it, I am moreover enveloped in silence, so profound that I’ll take the liberty of calling it sublime. It is one of those things where I can be me, where I can vacate all my inhibitions, all of my perplexity, all of my filth; ponder on almost everything and nothing.

And then I slowed down to gaze abstractly at the stars, wonder at the fortitude of the leaves on a tree, listen to the ambitions of the mighty wind, just to hold up onto something. There shall be no sound but my breath and the flirting breeze.  So that I can be there for ages, only the chirping birds are allowed to shatter this silence, everything else shall be profane. It’s a strange sort of high, not viable to everyone. It is here where I can dissipate my unwanted energy, the awful downers, and the ones I don’t really want to think. Normally it takes longer to get myself into a positive mood, as sometimes I feel like I have a bizarre, mild form of manic depression. Sometimes I’m optimistic and driven, and at other times the apathy is overwhelming. And I am aware; as I always am that I cannot always step into a physical Narnia to escape negativism. But it helps, during times like this when I find myself slowly, but surely, gravitating towards an optimistic mood. It helps me to realize

“You’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down”- Charlie Chaplin

…Love has no ending…

 

78230

I‘ll love you, dear, I’ll love you

   Till China and Africa meet,

And the river jumps over the mountain

   And the salmon sing in the street,

‘I’ll love you till the ocean

   Is folded and hung up to dry

And the seven stars go squawking

   Like geese about the sky.

‘The years shall run like rabbits,

   For in my arms I hold

The Flower of the Ages,

   And the first love of the world.’

But all the clocks in the city

   Began to whirr and chime:

‘O let not Time deceive you,

   You cannot conquer Time.

‘In the burrows of the Nightmare

   Where Justice naked is,

Time watches from the shadow

  And coughs when you would kiss

PARADISE

MG1

Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you
Won’t be waiting on the other side
Every time I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But there’s no you,
Except in my dreams tonight

There’s no relief,
I see you in my sleep
And everybody’s rushing me,
But I can feel you touching me
There’s no release,
I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I’m fine

P.S. excerpts from Lana del rey’s ‘darkparadise’

DROWN

DROWN

   I get drown in me

In the lusty breeze of sea

in dilemma of an untamed mind

whenever I seek precision

In bewilderment of my identity

lynching in the crises of life

heading nowhere but in oblivion

I get drown in me

In thrust of this unkempt world

In its lies and squabble

Recluse and babble

when people suck me dry

and I hold nothing to offer

then I lay spent under the night sky

to let the stars induce in torrential

I get drown in me

when I witness the hex of a setting sun

its yellow, its orange, its red

swallowing my hideous dark demons

and spitting out a soul unchurned

I get drown in me

when I remember those eyes

those brown celestial ones

that once confessed love, pure and proper

but mugged me and left undone

I get drown in me

When I decide to rush

to the cosmos, in its lacuna

searching a portal that

embrace me with my frothy matter

bestowing some rustic peace

somewhere I really belong!

MY ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS ARE:

  1. What are you currently doing in your life?

Professionally I work in capacity of an electrical & maintenance engineer with a reputed real-estate firm. And be sure I don’t like it at all.

Personally, my incognizance is too prudent to figure this one out.

  1. What did you want to become when you were a kid?

Truly speaking I always wanted to be Batman, was infatuated by the gadgets and heroism perhaps. Though, I still want somewhat similar attributes.

  1. How far will it take you to become the person you want to be? Or have you reached that state?

I reckon I am in lacuna of it, that Delphic state, still seeking what I wanna be. But for sure want to be a good, noble, kind man that lived with generosity and love, perhaps it might take my whole life to be that way.

  1. What is the most liveliest, most beautiful memory you have?

The day I first saw my new born brother, that would be the most beautiful memory till date. His closed eyes meant dream to me and the touch of his fingertips were divine.

Liveliest would be when I first got picked for under-15 cricket team.

  1. Would you like to change anything in your life, maybe your past or present?

Yes, my insolence towards a few, in the past. It would be pleasant if it could be eradicated.

  1. Who do you cherish, love the most in this world?

That’s easy, my family. I don’t particularly tell them that often but they mean the world to me.

  1. What is that one thing you will choose to do, even if a million dollars were offered to you to stop doing that?

You gotta be kidding me, million dollars are heck lot of money :P…lolzzz

Perhaps, love for literature or my solitary indiscreet sketching.

  1. Where in the world (if you had your whim) would you like to live?

Paris, most probably

Its said cities have sexes, London is a man, Paris a woman. So I would like to explore Paris then, I like how this city offers the knack, the charm, the intellect and conjecture that somewhat intrinsically defines a woman.

  1. Who is your favourite author/poet? Quote your favourite lines.

That’s not fair altogether, but still if I had to then I would pick ‘Munshi Premchand’ for his courage to write sanity and ‘Charles Bukowski’ for his courage to write insanity.

Quote: Out of many I would pick these,

“The intelligent have plans; the wise have principles.”

“It is in the heart that the values lie. I wish I could make people understand that a loving heart is riches, and riches enough, and that without it intellect is poverty.”

“People with no morals often considered themselves more free, but mostly they lacked the ability to feel or love.”

  1. Why do you write?

I always had echoes in me, good or bad I can’t shout, but they were always there. I wanted to paint my recluse somewhere so whats better than writing. So, I would say I write for myself basically, it gives me peace.

  1. What does ‘being happy’ mean to you?

‘Being happy’ for me is being loved and loving someone out of my soul, out of everything. Doing things which brings me satisfaction, peace. An act of benevolence or something. Eating with people I love.

Inspiration

Inspiration!
Inspiration!

The more I see this dormant world

Eyes wide open without a twirl

I catch it dark,

and darker it gets

Thee lay on prey without regrets

Scarce is when all people have woven

Cometh an inspiration in name of women

They are high,

They come with dreams

Color of life,

Living on streams

I wonder how they shine so bright

May be

coz of their dreams upright

Waving the air being still on ground

their balloons of dream sway

Without a sound
