The moment I sit in
So captured and imprisoned
You must know this
It must have happened to you

Time is flowing a moment after another
Like a river, a drop after another
And comes then a moment when
Being carried away you are in it
Captures you, imprisons you,
That moment for eternity

Locked you are in its chains
But struggle you not to free yourself
As the moment has consumed you

Such is, I want to tell you,
Your beauty
Captured and unwilling to struggle
To free myself
So Lay I
Consumed by your beauty

Pregnant desire

Arrested is desire, in the chains of cupidity
Posses she must that is forbidden

Blinding is the aroma of transgression
And seized desires swell..
Disintegrate they then
On the shores of Eden

Pregnant is the desire fulfilled
From the seed of “sin”,
grows and then born thus is
guilt, the child of desire

Deke maut ke havaale muje
aye ruh rukhsat tu ho gayi
karke waada zindagi ka
maut ke darwaaze pe tu chhod gayi

lita diya duniya ne kabr mein
aur zameen se mein lipat gaya
simat ke fir jaise maa ki god me
aanson bahaata teri bewafaai ke raha

jab thak kar badli karwat maine
to aashiko ka maikhana paya
jahaan lete hue hai sab chhe foot andar
gaate hue, ruh, teri bewaafi ka gaana

As the time flies..

A bird swift with a hawk's velocity
whizzes it through the invisible skies
Lingers the whiff of past, as behind
Fragrance of nostalgia lies

Sheds it a feather on some flights
And born is a moment florid
Capture I wish to, the colorful plume
But dances it away with the wind

Builds it a nest in a distant land
Where slow moos of the cows are heard
And in the slow rustles of the trees
Comes the lost wind for nomad's rest

Some Sundays comes the bird to my porch
And slow down the clocks their breathing
But come when the Mondays, Tuesdays and so on..
Takes it off to distant land for the nest far away

And I watch the time fly by..
