Jaded are my eyes and gorged brain
Oh so badly I need something to sustain
No placebo I crave for, give me a balm..
Who feeds on cartfuls of fodder?
I thrive on a pearl on an ivory palm!

Between the Sheets

We both vulnerable
To each other
Not a stitch in defense
And who needs it?

I explore.. you elude
you oblige.. I cajole
I seek you grant
And then play pricey

Intertwined in each other
The whole night
My poem and me
Between the sheets of paper!

सिपाही मेरे
मर रहे बेमौत
नेता ख़ामोश 

Friday 1 January 2016


हंगामा  है  क्यों  बरपा
जो तारीख़ बदल गयी है
नाउम्मीदी  कल भी थी
दिल दुखता आज भी  है

This post is dedicated to millions of fellow humans who look perplexed at limos whizzing or rolling languorously to decked up swanky venues overflowing with spirits, goodies, music, flowers and perfumes on the 31st of December every year..
