As i was growing up
and dadi grew older
the stories she told me
started getting strange

like the man who sneezed coins
every time he caught a cold
or the rainbow that fell down
from the sky

the mailbox that collected
letters like a piggybank
and the dog who once learned
how to fly

but the one i’ll never forget
is of the street below her house
which she said back then
didn’t have a name

so dadi with her friends
drew chits and decided
that street they played on
would be called jenny

now it all seemed fine
until one fine day
some men wanted
jenny for themselves

and so there came
a paan shop on one side
and a country bar on the other

and a contractor
who even made promises
that he’d make jenny look prettier

but soon some men spat on her
and some fell on her drunk
and the potholes the contractor left
seemed like scars on her face

so jenny grew sadder
day by day
even the streetlights
couldn’t cheer her up
and dadi just watched
helpless from her balcony
unable to do much

until one rainy night
jenny was scared
she couldn’t take it anymore

she shivered so hard
it caused an earthquake
of magnitude 3.4

the strangest part next morning was
no one had felt it happen
the shops and buildings all stood fine
just news reports kept flashing-
.
‘the earthquake caused no damage
it just cracked this street apart’
.
and when i asked dadi what that looked like
she said, “as if we’d broken jenny’s heart”

Let the poets and painters die in efforts to make something as pure and true as your sight because there is beauty in perfection and there is nothing as perfect as you.

I have never felt
incomplete in
your presence
and i will never
feel away from
peace when i
have any part of
you with me, even
if it’s your chaos.

“feeling thirsty”

venture into darkness with me
i’ll share my world for you to see
walking through alleys so pale
all past food and drink now stale
learn new things on hunting a must
blood almost black, something you shall lust
no longer urges for whiskey or meth
these new eyes crave only fresh death
lurking together for another bite
watch them squirm their last fight
one taste, one drink will deal the deal
oh so good you then will feel
every night it is all i crave
hunting people as my slave
smarter than a hungry fox
to rest again inside my box

"happy birthday"
*a poem for you*

happy birthday to my
dearest friend.
another year has passed,
seemingly so fast,
yet the blink of your eyes
lasted 525,600 minutes.
what wondrous memories
you must carry within
your heart.
i wish you endless laughter,
moments of love,
pure and gentle like snow,
and the contentment in knowing
how loved you are.

happy birthday dear friend.
the days and nights
have been too long since
we last broke bread
through spoken word.
even in the silence,
you are with me.
moments of uncertainty
i allow pen and paper
to turn to magic,
i think of you.
in seconds of doubt or
sadness i recall the
kindness of your words.

you, my dear friend
are made up of stardust,
sun rays and
the oceans song.
so much could be said
but your qualities cannot
be sung by syllable or noun.
nor can the beauty of
your soul be captured in the
retelling of favored memories.
thank you for sharing
this journey with me,
near or far, the hike of life
is better with you in it.
i wish you the best of days on
this, your day one of 365.
happy birthday to you,
my dearest friend.
love you.
sastone

अगर रूह पे लगे गहरे ज़ख्मों को शब्दों से साँझा करना ही शायरी है,
तो बाफुरसत बैठिएगा जनाब,
के ये महफ़िल अभी कुछ ज़माने और चलेगी! by @iamkaran08
