तुम्हारी मेरी कहानी

Ok, so this is my first attempt at writing hindi in a long long time. So overlook any grammatical errors, assuming you get past how amateurish the poem is! कठोर मतलबी दुनिया से कहीं दूर, अपने मतलब की भूल भुलैया में, भूल गए हैं मतलब की हेसियत. खोकली ख़ुशी की खातिर, कितनो और को कुचला […]

Up In Smoke!!

Disclaimer: Contents not drawn from personal experience 😛 I sit up thinking, As the smoke I lit masks The haziness of my vision, If the life I lead, is of my own taste. I sit up wondering, As vivid memories of days long gone Condense into perfect circular puffs, If the place I am at, […]

I don’t want to look back anymore Speculating if they would have taken me downhill or o’er.

I seek no more. Greed’s stopped pounding. Aspirations are no more blinding. It’s a full stop. To all things sought for. Feet are set firmly on this floor. Such is my emotion- drained. No longer pleasing, what I have attained. An eerie equanimity has set in, Not even a shadow of the passion, once been, […]
