Dark Clouds

Don’t know my identity, Male or female or something else, Not sure about it truly, “But surely not a curse.” People laugh and clap, On my identity, buried; Given an opportunity, All want to play erotically.

Man: A Universal Fool

Always moving on the path Of self-destruction and rot, With hard fingers and a harsh heart, A dark flash of hate and gluttony. Toppling every indication of humanity, Dreaming of inaccessible goals, He axes down his […]

Half Husband

She is my spouse sitting beside me coolly, Looking very ordinary and simple. Appearing very calm but self-full of hidden arrogance, Like Narcissus superiority and there she lives with me.

Shahrukh and his Dreams

Shahrukh was the best friend of mine, We studied together in childhood time, He was always last in studies and line, And never cares about the lessons fine.   When asked some questions about history, He thought it as if was an Arabian mystery, All laughed at his mess as if he was a jockey, […]

Coffee and the Book

A foggy winter evening, Covered in dark clothing, Through the haze, silently sitting; Hot-coffee and me–sipping; In a desolate corner of the cafe.     A Muslim,  a Jew, a Christian; A Hindu, an Atheist-all sitting; They gossip, drink, laughing, Like good old friends, beaming; Life became good and teeming.   Then came two gentlemen, staring; […]
