The Walled Garden

 

 

I would give you this rose

But you are shut in the walled garden

Among your bitter herbs

I would show you the sun

But you have turned your head away

Into your own shadow

 

I would sing you asong

But it falls silent by the sad waters

Where are you walking?

 

I would touch your hand

But i cannot reach you when you are

Lost in no known country

Will you not turn and…

Phobia

 

 

Shadow poised in the harsh light

Silent tear

Recluse

Gathering autumn leaves

Crumbling in the hand

In death,alive

Craven depth

Blight of fury

Shade your eyes

Hide from the gleam

Enter the chasm

Widening stench

Away from love hate love

God and you

She

Long hair flowing ,blowing

Dark eyes smiling,knowing

She knew the love of loves

As  only those who lost it know

She lived in memories

With nothing but wisdom to show

She walked tall andalone

Waiting,wondering

As she smiled with her eyes

Knowing

And her dark hair blowing

The holy land

 

The overladen dusty skies

Descent of death

Within every Muslim

Lies the spirit of Aljihad

 

What is life..this world

What use is existence

Amid this gory massacre

Murder of innocents

 

Surpassing all reality

Is the road to eternity

We shall repay our debts

Lay down our lives

 

The cruel world watches with cold eyes

Flickering screens

As we live through each…

AlJihad

 

How human are you

When your hands are bloody

How human are you

When you have ridden

Through the valley of death

 

I defy you

I shall resist

Fight for my people

Fight for my land

 

I shall write

With the ink of anguish

Narrate my sorrow

Drown in my pain

 

The heavens cry

The mournful wind

Wafts through the valley of Karbala

To the bloody…

Lost world

 

 

 

Missing you,missing me

That feeling

Like everything had fallen

Right into place

 

Unlucky you,unlucky me

The world changed

Taking a new bend

With you at the farthest pole

 

Faraway ,faraway me

And everything seemed

Like it never did

Some  magic spell

 

Losing you,losing me

Happiness evaporated

Leaving these squiggles,scribbles

And a plastic…

Us

 

 

Recall when our eyes first met

Recognising,memorising,mesmerising

Recording that moment in time

Precious,pure,sublime

 

Life took a sudden bend

With no beginnings,no end

Nothing halfway,no pathway

No solutions,no restraint

 

You are my sandcastle

Steadfast,peaceful in unity

Yet just a touch

Vision,or a mirage

 

A sea of serenity

Key to eternity

Utopian…

Margalla Hills

 

 

This crispy morning

We walk in the woods

Hand in hand

In silence.

 

The smell of pine trees

Dry leaves rustle underfoot

The rolling turquoise skies

And emerald Margalla Hills.

 

In the morning after

The repose,the rapture

The sweet unspoken

Melody of love

 

Music in the air

Heavens symphonies

Peace to share

And feel of eternity

Phantom Love

 

 

Engulf me,enclose me

Live in my heart

Unseen,unknown

My fantasy love

 

You whisper  to me

In the  silent night

Follow me

In the brazen daylight

 

You live without me

Yet within me

Surrounding me

Unreachable,unfathomable

 

Yet you return

Crowding my thoughts

Cloying my senses

Distant phantom love.

Perchance...

 

Perchance to meet today

When the air is soft

And the sky violet

Perchance to touch your hand

And cross back into time

When our love was young

The bridges in between

Haveall been crossed

Perchance to think

To love

And all that was is lost

And all that was is lost.

We know that we can look

Back on the paths we took

With a smile

Perchance to wish

Back all those…

Ghosts

 

Ghosts dwell with me

Every minute of my consciousness

And i cannot even laugh

At the joke of my existence

And their nothingness...

 

Ghosts,dear,darling,kind

Remind me in a soft voice

Whispering in my ear

How empty life has become

With their absence

 

Ghosts,oft remembered ghosts

Have stolen away my heart

And left a   dizzy part of me

Wondering if i,m the…

Sea of love

 

 

You came into my life

Like a tender breeze

Beckoning,caressing

Softly like a roving cloud

 

I wander aimlessly on the shore

Of my life

Watching the receding waves

As you approach me

 

Come,enclose me

In your  warmth

Peaceful,dove like

To fall into slumber

 

T be with you

Midst the ascending clouds

And the  depths of the sea

Forever....

Frozen Fire

 

Come...walk with me..

Over this icy sheet of  water

Crystalline,wafer thin and fragile

Just like the path to eternity

 

Glide like a lazy ballerina

Floating aimlessly in gauzy organza

Our breath frozen in tiny icicles

And snowy silence

 

With fire in our hearts

In this winter wonderland

Flames ...just frozen

Ribbons of red and white

 

The world is like a bubble

Afrozen…

Words




Words conceal as much as they reveal
I f not more
As the mind tries to sift
The half-said
Into unsaid meaningfuls
And read between the lines
Only to shy away from
And evade
The innuendos and implications
The inverse revelations...
In the crack,d mirror
Of memories and realities...

Live Terror

The car sped past
The glittering neon signs
Flickering lights
Of an evil city.


The walking wounded
Crowded busy streets
Empty eyes
Empty laughter.


Running from random bullets
They scattered fast
Buying bangles
Buying shoes.


Today is here
Tomorrow might never be
So hurry on
Roll up the…

Chaghi Hills

What is the price
Of a nation,s dreams
Tangled in barbed wire


Dreams in mushroom clouds
Fly past
Mountains that turn into ashes.


Turn white ,disintegrate
As the earth rumbles
Leaves wither


We have hands on triggers
Self-destruct
Or destroy


Masses of beings
Into burnt cotton wool…

Lazy Loralai

Trees laden with golden peaches
The bronzed amber of autumn
And reckless butterflies
In lazy Loralai.


Damp grassy hillocks
And somnolent valleys
The jewel-like sparkle
Of the lake of a thousand fairy tales.


Let it be ours forever
Yours and mine
The undulating vibrance
And fragrant love...


I t can never…
