    Dear #D,

    It's midnight, and I have picked up paints and brushes after a long time. The painting seems complete, but something about it feels incomplete. Imperfect.


    It was the summer of 2012. Like every summer afternoon, I was in my room, painting. Black sheet. White paints. My face and hands were all smeared in paints. i was almost done, when my father walked in. He saw me painting. I smiled at him. He smiled back at me.


    He loved painting. And sketching too. Inside of him lived a young 18 year old boy, who was in a constant battle with the older and wiser man he had become, who would draw diagrams in my journal. I let him. And he let him paint. 


    He took a chair, and sat beside me. Looked at the painting intently. 

    It's almost done, I said.

    Okay. He replied and went back to gazing the painting. His gaze was fixed, as if the painting was a tiny earthen lamp, in a dark room, and he was a yogi, meditating, absorbing energy. He was studying each stroke so intensely, that it was intimidating.


    Is it done, now? He asked finally.

    I think it is perfect. He continued.

    Almost. I feel it's incomplete. I replied back.

    He smiled at me and said, 'some things are meant to be just the way they are, incomplete', and left.

    My fourteen year brain couldn't digest what my ears had just heard, and as is my nature, I ignored what I couldn't bend my head around.


    I looked at the piece in front of me with horror. The stroke that I thought was so necessary to complete the painting, had turned out to the one that destroyed it. The black sheet looked no more like a night sky, but a random splash of whites on black. And as if it wasn't embarrassing already, my dad walked into my room again. He looked at the painting, and then at me, and a smile flashed on his face. I hated that 'all knowing' smile. I still do. 'What is it', I ask.


    'It's your nature. You want everything perfect. You want everything better. And in your attempt to make things perfect, you end up messing things', he said.


    It took me eight years to realise that. They said, that I was perfect. 

    I say, I wasn't. And I am not. But I still look for perfection. I can't accept flaws. Even if I do, I still don't give up on making it perfect. I am never satisfied. I am always running towards perfection, patterns, symmetries. 

    And every time, in attempt to make them perfect, I mess them up.


    The painting is imperfect.

    But it's beautiful.

    She is exhausted,
    her vase of desires is shattered,
    her failure has sown the seeds of pessimism,
    those burning flames of determination in her eyes alchemize into futility,
    Standing before the mirror
    I perceive,
    it's déjà vu.

    The déjà vu feelings,
    that is disseminating once again.

    وہ نظریں شکار کرتی ہیں
    ہر نظر پہ قہر سوار کرتی ہیں

    بہت پیچیدہ ہیں کیا وہ شوخیاں
    یہ ہر رُت پہ سوال کرتی ہیں

    زخم بھرے یا اُبھرے گا تو نہیں؟
    محبّت یہ بےشمار کرتی ہیں

    خاموشی سے جھکاؤ ذرا اِنہیں
    یہ تمپے خنجر حلال کرتی ہیں

    گھماؤ نہ اِدھر اُدھر آہستگی میں
    یہ غضب کا زوال کرتی ہیں

    نفس کی پلکوں پہ سجا لینا نہیں
    یہ نیندیں حرام کرتی ہیں

    اُٹھ گئی گر غلطی سے ہی صحی
    پھر یہ نخریں ہزار کرتی ہیں

    نظر سے نظر ملا لینا نہیں
    یہ سب سچّ بیاں کرتی ہیں

    یہ تو ہے عئش اِک گنجائش انمیں
    یہ محرم پہ جاں نثار کرتی ہیں

    Wh nazrein shikaar krti hein
    Hr nzr pe qhr sawaar krti hn

    Bohut pecheeda hn kiya wh shokhiyaan
    Yh hr rut pe sawaal krti hein

    Zakham bharey ya ubhrey ga to nhi?
    Mohobbat yh beshumaar krti hein

    Khamoshi se jhukao zra inhein
    Yh tum pe khanjar halaal krti hn

    Ghumao na idhar udhar ahistgi mein
    Yh Ghazab ka zawaal krti hein

    Nafs ki palkon pe sja lena nhi
    Yh neendein haraam krti hein

    Uth gyi hr ghalti se hi sahi
    Phr yh nakhrein hazaar krti hein

    Nazar se Nazar mila lena nahi
    Yh sb sachchai bayaan krti hein

    Yh to hai Áysh ek gunjaish inmein
    Yh mehram pe jaan nisaar krti hein.

    Déjà vu!!

    These streets that I'm passing through
    The wind that hits me on my face
    These eyes are capturing views and hue
    The reality lies here, let me embrace.
    Is this what fate has chosen to do?
    This may be nothing but a déjà vu!

    Ashk behte hn aashiqui m ab yk bayakja,
    Reh reh raahein hn rawani hai saaqui
    Kho gaya rahee kahin wh saathi hasta basta,

    عشق پھر اشک

    جامِ عشق پی گیا وہ عاشق رفتہ رفتہ
    یوں بھی زِندگی گھست رہی ہفتہ ہفتہ
    بہت انتظار کیا گیا او! پتھّر کے صنم
    اشک بہتے ہیں عاشقی میں اب یک بیکجہ
    رہ رہ راہیں ہیں روانی ہے ساقی
    کھو گیا راہی کہیں ساتھی وہ ہستہ بستہ
    شغل مستی میں ائے عئش! عشق یوں برملا
    ملِے پر جنّتِ محرم و نامحرم ہوئے پہ دوزخ جابجہ

    ملالِ یار

    آنکھوں میں میرے کچھ خاب لاجواب ہیں
    دِل میں میرے ارماں بےحساب ہیں،
    سُدھ بُدھ کھو بیٹھے ہیں ملالِ یار میں
    یار کہاں ہے اپنا زوال کے انبار سے ہیں،
    ایسا نہیں ہے کہ وہ ہمیشگی میں پچھڑا
    یہ پنّے جو بھیگتے ہیں رب کے سوال سے ہیں،
    اب جانتے ہو پو پوچھوگے اچنبھے میں آکر
    صاحب ذرا بتاؤ یہ یار کب کیسے کہاں سے ہیں؟
    بھٹکے ہوئے سے پوچھتے ہیں ہر دفعہ ، ہے عئش!
    کہہ دے توبھی وہ یار ہے ربّی کون و جہاں سے ہیں۔

    آغاز سے بےخبر ہے انجام کی ہی خبر کرلے
    اے اشرف انساں جا کچھ جا کے ہنر کرلے،
    عیش و عشرت کی ہی غفلت میں رہا تو
    مقدس ہے تو اپنے اوپر کچھ تو رحم کرلے،
    عشقِ ربّ العالمین میں یوں ہوجا آبزن
    شمشیر اللہ ہوکے بھی کچھ زِندگی بسر کرلے،
    اِس بے مطلب کی دنیا سے بے پرواہ ہوکر
    متقی کی قوم بن ذرا یہ بھی زرر کرلے،
    بہت گناہ کیے ہیں ناجانی نفرتوں میں آکر
    نفرت شیطاں میں آ کچھ ایسا ہی کفر کرلے؟
    کونسی خوشفہمی کی ڈینگے مارتا ادھر اُدھر
    آباد علمِ عالم کرصحی کچھ ایسا سیفر کرلے،
    یہ جو تیرے قلب میں بےجا ہوتا اُتھل پُتھل
    روح مانگے غذاتیری جا کچھ یوں گزر کرلے،
    کہو آکر ہے عئش، جو پھری ہے ڈگر نگر
    مقام پہ مومن کر یوں اِک ایسا صبر کرلے۔

    And Eternity Was

    Et l'éternité fut.

    Elle se faufila dans ses veines
    Intercepta un caillot de peine
    L'élima n'ayant que faire des chahuts.

    Et l'Éternité fut!

    Dans un haut le cœur
    Elle tempêta un torrent rieur
    Et naquit la vie, l'Homme éperdu

    The wedding bells

    They shared a glance with fidgety fingers
    Everyone around blurred as they felt belonged to each other,
    They felt at peace being close to each other,
    They had a talk that lasted long, everyone felt that something is wrong.
    They came along and said yes together, Everyone cheered, as they were engulfed in hug
    The preparation for the D-day started as everyone took a responsibility
    But the to be bride and groom had no care,
    For they have started to live as a husband and wife in their never ending calls and incessant texts.
    The shopping spree disturbed their sleep, as they thought "Can't we get married in our pj's and loose tee"
    The thought of wearing a saree made her freak out, and he made sure to have a spare in everything he felt will be needed.
    The awaiting cake tasting happened and dishes were finalized as the foodie in them rejoiced with an evil smile.
    The waiting ended as the D-day came,
    Bride's father stood in corner as he made sure everything is going well
    Bride's mother fretted over this and that, unable to stand at one place
    Groom's father welcomed everyone as he smiled at known and unknown
    Groom's mother stood near the stage catering everything around
    Cousin's made sure to make it hard for to be bride and groom even to have a chance to glance..
    Well, friends made sure they didn't back out and run to hills
    The never ending rituals started and so did the smoke
    The Groom entered the stage wiping his forehead,
    The sound of her anklet made his beating heart to race,
    They looked at each other, his jaw dropped and she scanned him
    They bit their lips and held back the curse, as they sat next to each other
    They exchanged their vows with intertwined hands, as his hand carved for the nuptial cord
    As he tied the first knot, a tear drop rolled down her cheeks
    The second knot made her inner tremblings to feel at ease
    The third knot made him realize, she is meant to be his and he will treasure her in all walks of life.
    Their parents had tears of happiness in their eyes, as the princess of their home have become a queen and going to start a new life.
    The Father's together tapped each other's, shrugging their shoulder as now their son will realize how to be a man from the guy he is
    The newly wed engulfed each other in a hug as they realized matches are not made in heaven, and falling in love happened but staying in love is by choice
    As they all gathered for a photo, everyone realized marriage is not something that join two hearts, but two families in a new bond.

    Burning Sun.

    Il est mon astre
    Me brûle l'epiderme
    Me consume jusqu'à l'atome
    Et puis des cendres
    Et encore des flammes incandescentes.
    Nos cellules se dévorent
    Et s'étiolent deux êtres
    L'un dans l'autre
    Comme un soleil brûlant.
