Random Shayaris

A amateurish attempt at writing shayaris for different moods


Jab tumse mili nazar to chingari si bhadki
Hawa aisi bahi ki shama jal uthi
Der na karo sanam pyar ke ekrar me
Dhua dhua na ho jaye ye waqt kahi intezar me

Dreamy Love

Na dekha roop uska…na pata naam
Ho wo ek khubsurat hai arman
Intezar kar raha mai uska din rat
Jane woh kab sunegi mere dil ki baat

Nam na batayenge uska hum
Jisko dil de ke banaya hai sanam
Maloom nahi humko ki kaha hai woh
Hogi jaha, waha  rah dekh rahi hogi meri wo

Heart Break

Lafj tumhare ye dil ko chubh gaye
Satve aasman se hum jamin pe gir gaye
Ummeed to humko tumse pyar ki thi
Tum to bewafai karke dil tod gaye

Comments and feedback appreciated.


I need comfort, I need love
I need something to rise above

Its all pain down on earth
Everybody is looking for a rebirth

Live it all over, do it again
Will that make life a better bargain

Snatch it, kill it, suck it all
When will all this madness stall

Thorns on top, thorns below, thorns all around
Is this what i dreamt life was to be;
when the world was my playground

Now i find myself torn
To survive or wish to be reborn
Answers are what i look for here
Its just an endless haze everywhere

Happy New Year 2012 !

On this new year eve
I give myself these words
Words that remind of memories
Words that mean a lot

The year gone by was eventful
of actions good and bad
memories that make me proud
few that make me sad

out in this wild jungle called world
I started wrestling my way
won some battles, lost out few
took some decisions, thought they were right

A new me was created
a layer of experience added
with adventures that were unknown
dimensions that were dreams

Now I stand waving goodbye
to an year that’s gone by
welcoming with all arms
a new year full of charms

I gift these words not just for past
but for future bright and warm
with promise of joy and love
and success by leaps and bounds.

A Knotted Rope

The composition is a work of fiction based on writer’s understanding of the emotions a guy/girl would feel when his/her lover tries to return back into their life after a bitter breakup. Any resemblance to any person or situation is purely coincidental.

Knotted Rope

You wake me up, only to say
that I should have been the one to make it all go away
The lies, the fakes, the senseless fights
all coming back to give you sleepless nights

You want me to break the silence and make you understand
the good and the bad, while holding your hand
I don't have the strength to do it all again
and though I still care for you, its time to turn away

You say you want to bridge the gap
forget the acrimony that lasted the nap
I give you that for it doesn't matters anymore
A knotted rope will never be perfect like before.

मेरी प्रिये !

तेरी याद में एक नशा है

यह सच है दुनिया गवाह है !

अगर तुम पर..ओ सनम..वक़्त जाया करना है गुनाह

तो लटका  दो मुझे नहीं है परवाह !

मैं रहूँगा हमेशा  दिल में तेरे

बोल बनेगी क्या मेरी प्रिये !

Rain !

Rains ! They always make you smile. People like me in Delhi are suffering from the super hot weather and it just rained ! Ahh- the bliss. It felt so good that I wrote whatever was coming to my mind. On second read I felt like I wrote like a child – but then rains do make you wish to return to childhood and splash around !! Enjoy the rains and leave back your comments and experiences about rains.


Rain let go of all pain
you bring me the coolness
from the tiring day and its heat
a gift that makes me joyous and upbeat

I want to get drenched
and let you soak me wet
there is no better feeling
from the cool breeze that you get

You bring back those memories
of childhood the innocent one
making boats and splashing water
AAh ! there was nothing better to be done 

Here I sit with a wish
That you pour all through the night
The breeze and the rains
playing the lullaby I so desire !

This was the first cut unadulterated version of poem inspired by the much desired rains. Would love suggestions/feedback to improve the same.

I won’t be there for you !

Have you ever realized that even small thing can cause so much ideas to float around. Hope you like this one. As always, I am a beginner so all support/feedback/suggestions most welcome !!

And just when I thought it was starting to fade
Your note popped out staring me in the face
Memories all spread like they were just afresh
Heart skipped a beat as if on my first date

Reality shook me back; for dream world is over
What lies ahead is a life of different flavor
One day you'll see that I was right all through
But this ain't a movie so I won't be there for you!

So close yet so far ..

The spirit continues

So close yet so far
Like all things falling apart
Yet i gather myself from pain
For a world out there to live again

Have seen a lot of my friends pen down poetic words. They say they were inspired from different emotions – love,sorrow,hate,happiness etc. I gave myself a chance to write something down. I was inspired by one of the emotions brought about by some plots of life. Now sure how good the lines are. Here they are

The true picture is now what I see
For it was never meant to be
The words and emotions were all but fake
One big attempt for own mean sake
Now its over for good to be
The memories buried like a treasure beneath the sea !
