Forbidden Love

Deep into the chambers of her heart,
Lies a dark secret,
Yes, she was a wildfire.

Forbidden Love

Forbidden is your love for me,
For I know you are dark.
For I know you're the beast, 
For I know you will devour me.
Forbidden is your love for me,
Like the apple was for Adam and Eve.
Forbidden is your love for me,
Like everyone elses.
For I raised my walls higher,
So that none will ever enter.
The walls have been penetrated,
When our eyes met;
I felt my soul glued on your chaos.
Forbidden is your love for me,
For I know not how to love.
For I do not want to lose you,
For I cannot bear the heartbreak.
I looked at you and loved forbidden,
Your eyes made me do so.
I swam and drowned,
I got locked and chained;
By your hair locks and curls,
And I strangled there deep within.
The key was three magical words,
"I LOVE YOU".
For I know how much I do,
No matter how forbidden is your love for me;
But I will always love you.

Wandering to places

Wandered to the bottom,
And the top;
Wandered to the South,
And the North.
The Northern lights were comforting,
The Southern summer beautiful;
Been to the East,
And to the West.
The air, The Mountains, The Beaches, 
Conquered them all;
Except your heart, 
And that penetrates my soul. 
The comfort I have, 
When I lie between your breast;
And you hold me tight,
Your breath muffled deep;
And buried in my chest.
Your head resting on my heart,
As I hear you sleep;
The sleep I get, 
I never got;
Under the Northern lights.

The Tiger

The Tiger

Weak, feeble and meek, 
The thoughts in me reeked, 
As I struggled to paas the creek,
There I saw the person I loved,
And then I freaked.
The flashes I had,
Were of wounds and gashes,
You painted on my soul,
With all your curses and thrashes,
As your whip thundered,
My heart sank and soul shuddered,
As you bowed to show me respect,
I thought should I show you any mercy?
This time though I wasn't,
Weak, Feeble, And Meek,
For in the quest of loving you,
I became stronger and tougher,
I am now a ferocious and feared beast. 
Spectators watched me circling around you, 
They thought I was dancing around you, 
They saw me prowling around you, 
Didn't they think I would pounce,
With one blow I would finish you off, 
Then on your flesh I will bounce. 
They saw you with a hunter though,
They didn't know about my strong paws,
They thought you're the man of course,
They see you as intelligent and someone coarse, 
How stupid are they? 
They're unaware of my force.
As I know how I will finish you off,
Then would tear your flesh and rip you apart, 
As I will dig my jaws in your meat,
Tasting your blood and would quench my thirst with the blood sweet.
As I see the light in your eyes,
The more lit I get,
They see you as a boss in the hood,
I am seeing you as my food.

The Morning Coffee

The morning coffee doesn't taste sweet at all,
The sugar cubes are losing its sweetness,
Or was it your presence that made our coffee sweet?
My house is only mine now,
For you left us;
The mistake was mine.
People do it often!
All I wanted to know were you even mine?
"The comforting hugs are molesting me",
You said so.
All I wanted to know were you even mine?
"The love is suffocating me", you said,
All I did was, to ask you to stop talking to people whom I don't trust.
Your fragrance is still present, it is in every corner, present in our room.
Your strong emotions still present in my brain,
Your voice echo
When I lie on bed
Thinking where did we go wrong?
Where did I lose you?
Was it on the day we saw your friends happily getting married?
Because you always knew,
I am not a marriage material,
I saw your hopes, reflecting through your eyes.
Oh wait!
No! I promised your parents that we will one day, when I get financially well.
I worked, worked hard enough, but your presence was uprooted.
For I was earning well and the money became my new love, but I did everything to keep you happy.
I forgot
To spend time with you
To love you,
To hug you,
To be there for you, with you.
To be in the kitchen,
We cooked together.
Oh! How I wanted to dirty my hands with all your cooking stuff,
Then kiss your cheeks,
While I held your waist from back,
Running my hands gently on your belly,
Messing around with your apron.
And; my other hand;
Busy playing with your hair,
Caressing your neck,
A gentle kiss on your side jaw,
Rubbing my beard on your cheek.
Then one dark night came,
It hit me as hard,
As lightning hits the tree,
I was shattered,
Like your cutleries,
Then all I remember
Was,  you taking my hoody,
You loved the cologne
For I know you loved to be in them
"Easy night suit" you used to say and we chuckled,
You just left,
Yes the faults were mine,
And I know you are still mine,
It's just we are not together.

Put Me to Sleep

It's midnight,
I see the Blue-Black sky,
Like my bruised soul,
And shattered life,
Hold me in your arms,
Put me to sleep,
Endless nights,
Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia Creeps,
Maybe I wake up one day,
In a parallel world some day,
But right now put me to eternal sleep,
The sunrise next day I won't see,
Or maybe, wait for a while,
Let me see the moonshine,
Let me see the stars blink,
Or put me to sleep,
Maybe I wake up someday,
In a parallel world one day,
Happily with angels in Heaven,
Mesmerized by the beauty,
Or feeding my soul to the Satan,
In hell with disguised demons.
But right now just put me to sleep,
End my thoughts, suffocate me,
Strangle me, untangle me,
Kill me, let my death be a mystery.

Saquib Salim.

The Dark Side Of Mumbai

Mumbai shahar sapno Ka shahar hai, 
Ek aisi mayanagri,
Jaha sapno Ka bazaar roz lagta,
Agar galat raah pe chal pado,
To kayi sapne kho se jaate hain,
Kayi dabb se jaate hain,
Kayi mayoos se ho jaate hai,
Kayi gum-sum se ho jaate hai,
Kayi khatam se ho jaate hain.
Yaha saudaagar, alag alag jagah se,
Apne sapno ki dukaan liye, 
Kandho par zimmedariyo Ka baksa,
Aur apne buland haunsle, 
Aur himmat ke khazaane ko liye,
Sapne bechne aate hai,
Par halaat ke maare, 
Bhooke bechaare,
Kayi nashe mein doob jaate hain,
Ghamgeen hui, 
Namm aankhon se,
Kayi log apni jism ko bech jaate hai 
Majboori aur lachaari,
Kismat Ka ek bhadda mazaak ban jaati hai,
Magar Roz Mumbai ki aabadi 
Badhti chali jaati hai.
Safar train mein hota hai, 
Slow aur fast local ke jaise,
Zindagi apni dheemi aur tez gati se 
Apni raftaar dikhati hai,
Kabhi Kabhi kuch khushiyan
Qaus e quazah Ka Zindagi mein 
Rang bhar jaati hai,
Toh Kabhi zindagi,
Ek kaali Raat ban jaati hai. 
Roshni dikhti nahi hain,
Lamhe guzarte hain,
Mausam badalte hain,
Logo Ka chaal chalan,
Uthne baithne Ka dhang,
Aur unke taur tareeke ke rang,
Badal se jaate hain,
Waqt apne hisaab se 
Chalti chali jaati hai.
Waise toh, waise toh,
Kehte hain log,
Mumbai bada khoobsurat shahar hai,
Janaab yaha samundaro ki lehre,
Anginat logo ki laasho ko, 
Thikaane lagaati hai,
Khud unke maut Ka,
Bojh uthaati hai,
Hawaaon ki rawaangi,
Haadson ki kahaani sunaati hai,
Ped-Paudhe sannato se batiyaati hai,
Jab samundar ke lehro ka qahar,
Zalzala ke aazaab le aati hai.
Toofaan pedo ki aabroo ko 
Iss tarah channi kar deta hai,
Jaise border ke jawaan,
Jung mein fateh paane ke liye,
Bandookon se goliya barsaate hain.
Bandook toh Badi cheez hai,
Yaha logo ke boli tak,
khaare paani ke tarah,
Zehreeli hoti jaati hai,
Aur iss boli mein,
Mithaas bhi Kahi 
kho si jaati hai. 
Hasti logo ki, 
Badhti aabaadi mein,
Shahar ki gandagi mein,
Station ke bhagdad mein,
Khatam see ho jaati hai. 
Kehte hain Mumbai,
khoobsurat shahar Hain,
Raaste mein, buzurg aur gareebi
Kuch aur hee dastaan sunaati hai.

Awake

I wake up in the middle of the night, 
Only to see,
Lays beside me, 
Loneliness, Depression and Anxiety.
I try to sleep again, 
Only to experience,
My darkest fears, 
And all my pain. 
I try to close my eyes for a while, 
Trying to be calm and peaceful, 
Thinking about happiness, 
And the days colourful. 
All I am left with, 
A pillow under my head, 
Though I breathe, 
Yet I feel dead.
Little later I experience tears sliding down,
Tearing me apart and pulling me down, 
Leaving me in a puddle of tears, 
A wet pillow and a heart fully pierced. 
During the daylight, 
I scream in my room,
During the night,
I hear my soul shrieking in my room.
I try to not deal with violence,
I hear loneliness whispering in silence,
I see myself burning down, 
Feeling myself breaking down.
I try to relieve cherishable memories, 
All I'm left with a hitting-hard reality.

Tale of Infinity

In her tales of fancy,
There was none mortal;
For she is the 'Tale of Infinity'.

Ray of Hope

Like a mystical ray of hope,
She entered in my world;
Alas! The beast in me died.
