Your Smile

Loneliness visits
when stranded alone
Confirming the emptiness
—lost to bemoan

The darker the moment
the thicker it spreads
To lie and to cover
—my spirit in dread

It blocks every motion
I make to get out
Its shroud to enshadow

ਇਨਸਾਨ ਵਰਤਣ ਇਨਸਾਨ ਨੂੰ ਵਾਂਗਰ ਚੀਜ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ,
ਲਹਿਜਾ ਵੀ ਹੋਇਆ ਜੀਰੋ ਬਰਾਬਰ ਤਮੀਜਾਂ ਦੇ,
ਹਰ ਇੱਕ ਨੂੰ ਫਟਕਾਰ ਚੰਗਾ ਕੋਈ ਮਾੜਾ ਏ,
ਲੰਘ ਜਾਦੇਂ ਫੇਸ ਘੁੰਮਾਂ ਟੂਸੇ ਦਹਿਲੀਜ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ
ਇਨਸਾਨ ਵਰਤਣ ਇਨਸਾਨ......
ਖੁਸ਼ੀਆਂ ਦੀ ਖਾਤਰ ਕੀ ਕੁਝ ਕਰਨਾ ਪੈਂਦਾ ਏ,
ਬੋਲ ਕੁ ਬੋਲਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ ਜਰਨਾ ਪੈਂਦਾ...

Foolish For You

I am a fool that happens to be in love with a fool,
I am a fool coz I know I will only be fooled.
I am a fool coz I know he will never love me.
I am a fool coz I know cannot set myself free.

I am a fool for a man who has no heart

You may question why I rhyme and never add verse
I simply like to proffer the adverse
I am saying... proffer
I am not pro-fur
I prefer seeing it covering animals roaming the wild
Not less seen creatures to see another animal hide
I would not...

Freeze the Moment

I was shot. I wonder who it was. I'm on my knees for the moment, soaked in blood. Why is all I hear these two men yelling at each other? I wish someone could take me to a doctor. There's an ambulance coming now. Who knows if it will get here in...

Khwaab Ko Saath Milkar Sajaane Lage

ख़्वाब को साथ मिलकर सजाने लगे
घर कहीं इस तरह हम बसाने लगे
कर दिया है ख़फ़ा इस तरह से हमें
मान हम थे गए फिर मनाने लगे

Turn To Glass

You god forsaken creature, why can’t you die.
I turn around, you’re here again, stop this, I die.
Time was I didn’t know such hatred could exist.
Thank heavens you’ve defenders who know eternal bliss.
Shoot ’em up, make ’m die, tie my guts in...

I hope there is a Heaven,
With someone waiting there.
Where fear doesn't live,
And there's only love to share.

I hope there's someone's arms,
To wrap around you all.
That wash away the knowledge,
Of the day that you did fall.

I hope...

Who's holding the cards shuffling to gambol with our lives?
Pulled from the bottom of the pack in playing sight
Many always getting flipped when speedily dealt
Some for ransom... some ran some
Some ran out sum... ran some on felt
Is this now...

Daddy’s Little Girl

found myself at the river thinking about you today,
trying to make sense of why things had to end this way.
my life changed suddenly; not at all what i had planned,
i cant wrap my mind around it, i dont think I’ll ever understand.

Whose icon fleshed you to find one's alone unlike all other ones?
Fear being target sheep dressed in wolves clothes hiding amongst
addressed wolves sheepishly baring clause snarl toothlessly
Gotten all howling drunk on this latest hot flavour...
