Kash hum aur qareeb hotay…

Posted by Knonie

Kash hum aur qareeb hotay
Dil nahi tou na sahi
Ghar he nazdeek hotay

Har sham ka hamain
becheni say intezar hota
“Oye jaldi bahir aa” wala message
Phir aksar sath wali market mein jana
Chips aur Coke pakkar kar kaheen nikkal parna
Kuch din bhar ki batain karna
Kabhi puranay khuwab torna aur naye khuwab banana
Aur kabhi buhut hansna aur hansana

Phir sham gehri honay par wapis aana
Ghar k bahir kharray huye bhi bachi hui batain karna
Aur kartay he jana
Phir buhut baar Khuda Hafiz keh kar bhi alag na hona

Aur kabhi chhuti kay din
Wo tumhara meri taraf raat guzarna
Buhut si batain karna
Kaainat ki har cheez ki
Kabhi rangon say khelna
Kabhi tasveeron say

Raat honay par kabhi chhat par chalay aana
Sitaray aur chaand dekhna
Mil kar khamoshi ki awaz sun’na
Chhup kar cigarette bhi peena
Aur ye sochna k ye raat kabhi khatm na ho

Aao ab sotay hain, tumhara ye kehna
Aur mera wo chhota sa bistar
Jo hamaray liye buhut barra hota
Ussi par aahista aahista batain kartay kartay so jana

Ab uth jao aur baqi neend apnay ghar ja kay karna
Tumhara ankhain khol k mujhay aisay dekhna
jesay main bhi tumharay khuwab ka hissa hoon

Tumhari wo soi hui soorat
Aur neend bharri awaz
Ye poochna k itni jaldi subah kiyoon ho gayi

Kash hum aur qareeb hotay
Dil nahi tou na sahi
Ghar he nazdeek hotay

When you hide…

When you hide
behind a cloud
I make love
to myself
imagining you with you

You are so naturally
Naked
All around

It haunts

My room still smells of you.

I miss your voice

Posted by Knonie

I miss hearing your voice
I miss the sounds your mouth make
I miss that occasional cough
And those unexpected yawns
I miss your flu

I haven’t spoken for days

Silence

Your voice is all I want to hear
Please call

Money-folding fun

I made this by folding Pakistani currency notes. I used Rs. 100 for head, and Rs. 50 for shirt.

Dreams Wetness

No matter who I see
And what I do
Whenever I open my eyes
It’s always you.

Say I am You —Rumi

Posted by Knonie

I am dust particles in sunlight.
I am the round sun.

To the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, Keep moving.

I am morning mist,
and the breathing of evening.

I am wind in the top of a grove,
and surf on the cliff.
Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.

I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought, and voice.

The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark of a stone, a flickering in metal.
Both candle, and the moth crazy around it.

Rose, and the nightingale
lost in the fragrance.

I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence,
the lift, and the falling away.
What is, and what isn’t.

You who know Jelaluddin,
You the one in all,
say who I am.
Say I am You.
