Your Shine

This my third Hindi post with English translation. Thanks to all you wonderful people for liking and encouraging me to put forward my hindi proses

It was a trance wherever I glanced
Eyes glittered with vivid colors
of red, blue, purple and white
But even the hues couldn’t take away
The shine of your brilliance from my mind

मौसीक़ी का आलम हर तरफ था जोरो पर
रंग भी थे कई नारंगी लाल नीला सफेद
पर इन वर्णों में कहाँ था ज़ोर इतना
के तेरा रंग जहन से उत्तार सके

The Worn Out Serge

The worn out woolen serge
was hanging loosely from his shoulders
the weather was warm,
unpleasant enough to wear the drape,
making him perspire
in abundance,
leaving him at times flustered and agape.

Yet, regardless of season, night, day or occasion
he kept it close to his heart,
keeping his yearning pleasantly warm
with the hope,
that one day
she would long for him and return

Against All Odds

The trust that flow in abundance
from your doe shape eyes,
and the smile that grace your lips
every time my thought crosses your mind
your relentless belief in me,
that is always stronger than mine
and the fact that I am never scared to fall
for I know you’ll catch me from behind,
gives me the strength,
and the implacable thrust,
to achieve the unachievable
against all odds

Sanity in Insanity

Oh those soft guards,
that you put forth
for me to dissolve
and though I know they are pretend walls,
I consciously ignore,
making you wild,
as you spread your curly mane
pretending to show your anger
but in disguise

And when you have lost hope
of me playing your game
I surprise you
and enter your world
driving you insane

Such is our love,
difficult to understand,
yet envied by all

Impetuous Soul

She was impetuous,
always in a rush,
she never believed to rest and pause,
and her careened laced moves,
world seldom approved,
but her befuddled mind
never stopped her from soaring in blind

Never once was she rattled,
and every time she fell,
she collected her soul
and moved on to the next battle

Lest

Her spunk laced mind lest her temper,
and like a cannonball,
she dangerously flirted with his insane mind

Confronted him with grit,
braved his stance
with her furious glance,
and after an arduous battle,
and a long standing wait,
she erased the fears that engulfed his mind

A New Me

I was a ruinous soul,
a savage,
feared by all.

I am unsure when,
you crawled into my world,
and encroached my closely guarded den.
You caressed my wounds
and nurtured my soul,
tamed my anger
and showed me the blissful knoll.

Then one day I fortuitously saw my face,
and I failed to recognize my own image
I stood awestruck unsure what to do
a new world beaconing
a new me raring to go

Your Embrace

Beyond the judgment of right and wrong,
and the trenches of societal norms,
where prejudice never exists,
and kindness always persists,
where clans are ruled by trust,
and beliefs stand tall even in stormy gust

Like a peripatetic
I wandered around to find such a place,
and then I met you,
and found our abode in your embrace
