Many a mornings i plucked fragile n fragrant PARIJAT for her with great care,
One morning she trampled upon them with scorn n glee…
the fragments n fading fragrance remain in my painful memory !
Many a afternoons i brewed TEA for her with great care n served delicately in China,
One afternoon she put poison of her deceit in my cup….
This poison circulates forever in my veins !
Many a days we wrote n read the NOTEBOOK of love together,
One day she tore it up and threw the torn pages away….
The words mock me mournfully !
Over the years we built the BRIDGES and crossed them hand-in-hand time n again,
She burnt the Bridges n threw the ashes to the winds…..
I ran after it and collected a handful, crestfallen n ashen-faced !
Now i love Parijat, Tea, Notebook and Bridges more….
Coz they remind me of her treachery !
On the edge of Age…
On the cliff of Life…
On the brink of Death…
On the end of the beginning and beginning of the end….
When darkness has devoured the light and spark has gone…
When all seems to be lost forever in the abyss of nothingness…..
When time has timed out and space has shrunk ….
Mind drifts and dithers, confused and confounded,
Desperate to capture life’s journey in few fleeting moments !
Life….a kaleidoscope of colours n myriad hues,
But now all in black n white…nay Grey !
Life….a parade of people, places n peccadillos,
All that is left now is fragile vanishing memory !
Mind lucid no more…..now conscious, now unconscious…incoherent,
It tricks, it teases, it plays games !
Flood of Illusions, deluge of delusions !
A constant subliminal struggle !
And the matter matters not any more !
People loved n loving but are images hazy n distant !
Echoes come calling from far away shores,
But fade away in inaudible whispers !
It’s a different world out there……frightening but mesmerizing n enticing,
Blackest of the black hole !
It beckons, it calls, it tempts, it shepherds….
To the oblivion n beyond !
To keep the tryst with the unknown !
She couldn’t help Deceiving….. again n again,
It is her Nature !
I couldn’t help Trusting….. time n again,
It’s Mine !
Shout from the roof-tops,
0r wear it as a badge….
What is Love….but fake,
If it’s the Trust you break !
I believed we were beyond right or wrong,
But she wronged me saying it was right !
The Unfaithful is faithfully so,
The Shameless is shamelessly so….
The twain meet in the Treacherous !
Meri kitab ke har ek panne, har ek lafj pe sirf usika jikr hai,
jao ek baar uski ankhon me jhaank aao…..
dikhayi degi meri mohabbat,
aur uska fareb !
Every page, every word of my book is full of her,
Go, look into her eyes once….
You will see my love,
And her treachery !
Nothing hurts more than the deception !
Nothing is more cruel than the deception !
Nothing is more insulting than the deception !
Nothing is more degrading than the deception !
Nothing is more destroying than the deception !
Nothing is more demonic than the deception !
One who deceives, decay of her soul is complete !
