Perception

Innocence remains
The face is the same
Beauty hasn’t faded
It’s your eyes
Your harsh reality lens
And what you sense
Vision is jaded

Flight

past, as a crow, flies
in front my eyes
memories,
few were true
many were lies
to accommodate
sleep at night
smiles in days bright
live a simple life
no conscience fight
to admire present
ignore future fright20140625-085510 pm-75310711.jpg

Ashes

Dust and ashes
Reminds the end
beginnings, pretend
heaven send
Or was it hell
Time will tell
What is to there to sell
soul sold
heart under hammer
Can’t speak a word
Stammer stammer
Amend your words
Correct grammar
it won’t change the script
Decrypt the message
Open the passage
Time to go
End the lust
of eternal life
Going is must
Ashes and dust
Where is the coffin
Lay it to rest
Ashes and dust
and gust, takes it away
to deep dark
unknown valleys
spread last remains
of bones and flesh
comprehend
powerless being

Lost colours, frosty lands

In dire need of
a magic carpet,
death defying,
flying, rug

desire dearest’s
few kisses
heart to heart
tight warm hug

Embrace, kisses
deeply felt,
wall resurrected
insanity to sane

lost will and
composure regain
sordid world
seems colourful again

frozen night
melts away
born again
a frabjous day

Two of us

You
with me
without your presence
life has no essence
Universe is in absolute silence
Stars don’t shine, galaxies don’t align
I would like to walk with you
Sing many songs, run along, talk to you
This makes us joined from souls, making us whole

Ballerina

The sweet smell of my rose
in a red ballerina dress
pirouette grace
perfect stance
in her stride
my heart just divides
in thousand singing
sparrows, admiring
her beauty, that soul
unmoal (انمول) 🙂

Concrete oasis burning

Humans worse than
animals at the gates
murdering anyone who
they see against their fates
hands are blackened
by the blood they spill
eyes red, heavens
nightmares their heads fill
without looking at faces
who they kill, they kill
innocent screams in fear,
ignored by savages with no ears

This was written after a terrorist attack in Karachi in June 2014, a city I am fond of and have amazing memories. The photos are from Jinnah international airport which was targeted and many innocent people were killed, all terrorists are dead as well.

Condemned

Never you?
And never me?
How could it be
I thought
We are bound
Life long
After life
Eternity
How could you
Be so cruel
Leaving me
Treating me
Disposable
Throwable
Ignorable?
Simple one
Beautiful, with
a dimple, one
It’s not you
It’s just me
Scoundrel
Deplorable
Scum of the earth
Horrible
I did it once
Will do it again
Just like to see
Everyone
in pain
You can
hate me
Berate me
Just don’t forgive
Curse me
Immerse me
In dark deep
Fires of hell
That’s where
I belong
for life long
Eternity
Not with you
Just with me!
