    To Be.

    To be a shackle men put themselves in willingly.
    To be a dungeon to those obsessed by divinity.
    To be lighter than a spring breeze. To be as fertile as Gaea. To be as alluring as Apollo's chariot.
    To be the most beautiful woman in the world, Oh what I wouldn't give to be.

    Dolor.

    Have you ever felt a weird tug in your heart when you see something beautiful? Its weird isn't it? We grow up with an apparatus ready to pick apart anything with even the slightest deformity, yet when our eyes recognize perfection, we ache? Why is that?
    Maybe it is our soul showing us our clumsy attempts at evading the lack of acceptance we've always longed for. Because I call out my flaws every time I look in the mirror. I can't help it.
    But I don't want you to do the same.
    Maybe that is why it hurts, when I look at you.
    And I secretly wish, that even if just a little bit, but your heart also hurts like this, everytime you look at me.

    HANGAMA-E-HAYAT SE JANBAR NA HO SKA.
    JANEY YE KEISA DIL HA JO PATHAR NA HO SKA.

    It remains unprotected from the pandemonium of life.
    What is this heart, that still has not turned to stone?

    ہنگامہ۔

    ہنگامہِ حیات سے جانبر نہ ہو سکا۔
    جانے یہ کیسا دِل ہے جو پتَّھر نا ہو سکا۔

    Felicitations.

    Congratulations on evading the pains of this world. Pray that I make it too.

    Blue.

    I'd rather fuel a fantasy than deal with this alone.
    But I wanna come home to you, and that's all I wanna do right now.

    YE JO RAYG-E-DASHT-E-FIRAAQ HA YE RUKEY AGAR,
    YE RUKEY AGER TO NISHAAN MILEY
    K JO FAISLOO KI SALEEB HA, WO GARHI HUI HA KAHAN KAHAN
    TEIRAY ULTAFAT KI KEHKASHAAN,
    YE RUKEY AGER TO PATA CHALEY,
    MEIN THI KIS TARAF, TU RAHA KAHAN.
    K ZAMAN-O-MAKAN KI YE WUS'ATIEN TUJHE DEIKHNAY KO TARAS GAYEIN.
    WO MEIRAY NASEEB KI BARISHIEN, KISSI OR CHAT PR BARAS GAYEIN.

    فراق۔

    یہ جو ریگِ دشتِ فراق ہےیہ رُکےاگر
    یہ رُکے اگر تو نشاں ملے
    کہ جو فیصلوں کی صلیب ہے
    وہ گڑی ہوئی ہے کہاں کہاں
    میرے آسماں سے کدھر گئی
    تیرے التفات کی کہکشاں
    یہ رُکے گر تو پتہ چلے
    میں تھی کس طرف تُو رہا کہاں
    کہ زمان و مکاں کی یہ وسعتیں تجھے دیکھنے کو ترس گئیں
    وہ میرے نصیب کی بارشیں کسی اور چھت پہ برس گئیں

    نظامِ عالم ۔

    آپ ٹھہرے ہیں تو ٹھہرا ہے نظامِ عالم،
    آپ گُزرے ہیں تو اک موج رواں گُزری ہے۔
    پھر بھی جو دِل پہ گزرنی تھی کہاں گُزری ہے۔
    گرچہ سو بار غمِ حجر سے جاں گُزری ہے۔

    Period.

    God promises mansions of gold and silver with thousands of servants, gems and gardens in heaven for the pious and those who have suffered. I fear my devoutness may not be as convincing as my suffering. In any case, all I would like is a small corner in heaven. A small space that no one else wants. My corner.

    IBLEES

    What prayer do you say for someone who has lost all hope? Is prayer inherently not hope?
