When I look
Into your eyes
I feel so isolated
I feel lost in the skies

Our ongoing stare
Your soul I can see right through
Nothing else matters to me
But me and you

These feelings that I feel
I cannot yet explain
As if our interlocking eyes
Are like our bodies' veins

Transferring our feelings
To each other’s hearts
Love tainted toxins
All doing their part

Just in case
I begin to forget ...
You help me realize
I have nothing over which to fret

Every moment
That we share
I hope it’ll never end ...
This ongoing stare

I’ve never felt
This way before
You truly are special
You’ve opened up the door

You have no idea
How much you mean to me
I’m finally on the right path
You’ve set my soul free

All I wish for
Is that you’re feeling the same way
I can barely breathe when I’m with you
You take my breath away

I now begin to realize
Staring into your powerful eyes
That the incredible feelings I’m getting inside
Are real meaningful “Butterflies”

Weeping Willow

Weeping willow with your tears running down,
Why do you always weep and frown?
Is it because he left you one day?
Is it because he could not stay?
On your branches he would swing,
Do you long for the happiness that day would bring?
He found shelter in your shade,
You thought his laughter would never fade.
Weeping willow, stop your tears,
There is something to calm your fears.
You think death has ripped you forever apart,
But I know he'll always be in your heart.

- From the movie My Girl!

She walks in beauty

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,—
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.

Good one!

I dialed your number on my phone,
And heard the ringing start.
And then a voice, so soft and sweet,
It opened up my heart.

You spoke in tones that seemed to float,
On air, like feathers fly.
My mind was spinning 'round n 'round,
I felt like I would die.

I didn't know just what to say,
I knew one thing was true.
I had to make you speak again,
Before our call was through.

The call is done, your voice still sings,
My soul has been set free.
For in my mind, you're here to stay,
If just in my memory.

I hope you understand, my love,
How dreams can still come true.
For every night, I hope and pray,
That you will love me, too.

Sleep and dream of me, my love,
Let your imagination soar.
Then tell me what you dreamt about,
So I can dream some more.

An Urdu Poem

हमेशा मुस्कुरा के आंसुओं को छुपाया,
गम को छुपाने का यही रास्ता नज़र आया!
किस किस को बताते बहते अश्कों का सबब,
के दर्द-ए-दिल दिल में किसने जगाया!!

महफिलों में कहीँ भी मज़ा ना रहा,
रखा दिल पे पत्थर तो खुद को सजाया!
बात-बे-बात अपनी आहें दबाकर,
दोस्तो के दर्मियाँ किस क़दर मुस्कुराया!!

ना थी चाह कभी मुझे मंकशी की,
जाम-ए-वफ़ा किसी बेवफा ने पिलाया!
क्या मुकद्दर से शिकवा करते रहे,
जो किस्मत में था वही कुछ तो पाया!!

ये किस मोड़ पे आगई हैं उम्मीदें,
के साया-ए-मंज़िल नज़र में ना आया!
अपनों ने पलट के देखा तक नहीं,
गैरों ने आकर गले से लगाया!!

अचछा हुआ के राज़ खुल ही गया,
दिल-e-नादान् पे खंजर किस ने चलाया!
शब्-ए-रोज़ चाहत सिला ये है की,
दिल के टुकड़े हुए वोह चुनने ना आया!!

Blueline Bus

Standing in the middle of the road, don't make such a fuss,
Get to a safer side, before comes the blueline bus!

Police can book errant drivers, vehicles can be impound,
Yet, the charm of big money, has their conscience bound!

Even a hundred deaths, could not shake the minister,
For the one who died, was not his brother or sister!

Hence, killers are back on road, till today 82 out of 87,
Only advice for all of us, look for a safe haven!

Beautiful Poems

Three poems, I came across yesterday. check them out...

Felt so frustrated with life!
Felt so frustrated with life!

I don't know what to do with my life!!

I don't know why am i made in the first place!

The more i asked questions, the more i felt like dying away.

There is nothing on this earth that really spur me on to live.
What should I do?

I gave Him a deadline that i felt like giving up now..
50 seems so far from me.

When can i end it ?
When can i stop this search?

I don't want to be like one of them,
living, reproducing, ending.

I don't have a purpose to live,
I refuse to reproduce another of my kind,
I refuse to go through life like the rest... eat, work, play, sick, die.
I refuse to believe that we are only made for a cycle.
I refuse to believe that we are made only for his pleasure viewing.
There must be something more to life!!

How come i come back to this point again..
When I would cross this hurdle?

I do not envy those who have a career..
for it comes to nothing at the end anyway.

I do not envy those who have a partner..
for it comes to nothing at the end anyway.

I do not envy those who have loads of kids..
for it comes to nothing at the end anyway.

Why are we here???? to live and multiply?
how are we different from the animals then?
perhaps they are better off without a brain that rationalise..

When would i die away?

When someone tells me he/she has a cancer and dying..
i ask why is it not me?
When someone tells me his love one died..
i ask why is it not me? when would it be me?
perhaps they are better off than us who continue to live.

those who live wanted to change things.. but how much can we change?
so what if we change things? all would be nothing at the end of the day.

when would i pass away.. ???
i am still waiting ...

Running AWAY?
Am I running away..
or am i just taking break..

a break from the people,
a break from myself,
a break from the world,
a break from my mind..

I do not know and perhaps don't want to know
I just kept going..

this time it is a month
i'll record my running away soon..
i'll be running to vietnam.

hopefully by running there,
i would find myself.
hopefully by running there,
i would find appreciation of what i have and who i am

time to run!
get ready jerl,
for whatever reason..
just GO!!

Childbirth takes so much of the women,
yet i am really not sure if the men appreciate it...
especially by the way some treats their wives.
( i'll write about this some other time)

Many incentives nowadays to give birth,
yet no one realise that it is so easy to do just that..
but to educate a child drains all of the parents.

I ever thought of being a single parent
if the society is open enough to accept the child,
however, now even if the society is acceptable with it,
i wouldn't give it a shot..
as i have seen too many "devils" around...
it takes so much to guide and lead a child to the right path..
yet the future is so unpredictable;
and i would rather not have another devil on this earth.

Many people told me i should get married and have a kid,
cos i would be able to teach them personally..
yet i think it is more than my ability to teach or give them life..
it is a tremendous commitment of life from the beginning of marriage
to the end of that person's life.

May be i choose not to complicate my life,
may be i choose not to be responsible for another life,
may be it is easier to just live my life and answer for my life alone.

i mocked at those who give life sparingly yet withheld to give it a full life,
and admire the courageous ones out there who took this ladden seriously,
and did a good job.. though some failed.. at least they tried.

i am sure i wouldn't be the only one treading on this narrow path,
those who did, be encouraged that it is perfectly alrite not to adhere to social standards,
and most of all ...
You will never be the only one ..
