** Lost **

Whenever, on your street,
I pass by your door,
How hollow, I feel…
Such silence engulfed my soul,
Like ruins of an ancient city,
Even to myself, I feel…
Much I solaced my heart,
Much I cheered my self,
Still cross with myself, I feel…
Crowds or loneliness,
Both ask my identity,
Look, totally lost, I seem ###
** Tired Ocean **
Tired ocean went to sleep
waves are awake,
although desolate since evening
streets are awake…
Still some excuse exists
to get slain,
even hangmen are asleep
nooses are awake…
Sometimes yellow lamp of street
won’t let them sleep,
sometimes in the courtyard moonlight
nights are awake…
Long ago on long journeys
their loved ones set out,
still through the window slit
eyes are awake…
Stories of gloomy seasons
just can’t forget,
deep inside the soul weeping
centuries are awake ##

** Pace of Breathing **


From even pace of breathing

Many secrets are discovered


On the turn of love-alley

What-not people do forget


Yours only a careless glance

Many rumors are spread


Whose sound of feet is it

Doors open spontaneously


Stifling twilight - your memory

Cool breezes start blowing


Taking first step and

Your lovers are lost forever
