स्वतंत्रता के प्रहरी – Independence Day Poem – Hindi

  विपक्ष के शोर और सत्तापक्ष की गर्जन, झुलसते मेघ और ठिठुरती धूप, पिघलते हिम और हिम-मग्न होता लावा, गतिमान पृथ्वी और अनंत आकाश साक्षी हैं इनके प्रताप के जिनके सिंह समान अडिग और अविरल साहस से समग्र संसार हतप्रभ और अचंभित है - यही तो हैं, यही तो हैं हमारी अमूल्य स्वतंत्रता के निःस्वार्थ प्रहरी! हर बाण के घाव से जिनकी चौड़ी छाती, शत्रुओं के इतिहास से गहरी जिनकी [...]

I move on (every night) – A poem

  A can of RedBull (or mostly Monster), a few pages scattered on my table with MacBook Air emitting its low light and this is the usual sight on every usual night. A fight for survival or survival for the fight? Lust for the past and indifference to future make my life lifeless or just further my agenda to live. Unknown to me, stranger to myself, I move on (every [...]

Awakening to the fall – a poem

Time flies, as usual, at its usual pace and hearts beat inside us all. We know the truth; we know what lies that side of the wall but still we vow to break it down. Yes, when we know truth is bitter, we just spit on its face and once again (like many times before) embrace the insidious lie and torture our poor little souls. It's good that we know [...]

The Castle of Love has fallen! A Poem

  It's a night decorated with clouds that bring myriad hopes for rain. I see the Moon. Who will see my pain? I travelled through miserable caves, through destinations unheard. I prayed all that my wisdom revered. Alas! The castle of love has fallen. The glory and glee bite the dust. It begins; the rain - bathed in the fragrance of my subversion! I am the debris of myself. I [...]

Relics of our love…

  Relics of our love Somewhere, some random night in my random dream, I sit under the tree that stands beside a shallow pond of pure water - fish, flowers and ripples. I scratch my skinny soul. I try to find someone in the solitude of my dream; I could find if we were two - we are but one, what could I do? Weary, heavy, suppressed with the burden [...]

Momentary vs Eternal – Love

These walls, the distance and the pain are momentary, illusionary and ugly. Believe me, once again on the clouds you will ride and come to my world, to meet me on that side. Let fate have this round and rejoice, dear, our time awaits us not here but there - the world of our choice. The world is full of truth and lies; well, I see nothing beyond your eyes. [...]

My fall will see you rise

  My ambition, perhaps, was a little late and I might accept it, unwillingly, as my unfortunate fate. As I walk into the ocean of the infinite, I realise it will be (and has to be) an eternal fight (to death). A sudden day, I'll fall - have no surmise. But look into my eyes and remember that my fall will see you rise!   by alok mishra

शुक्रिया… तेरा शुक्रिया! last personal poem

  ऐसे बीच रास्ते छोड़ना अकेले मुझे कितना आसान रहा होगा शायद तुम्हारे लिए। पर कैसे भूल गयी तुम अब यहाँ से पीछे जाऊँ तो ज़िंदगी साथ नहीं देगी और आगे बढ़ा तुम्हारे बिना तो ज़िंदगी का साथ मैं नहीं दे पाउँगा! पर ठीक है चलो तुम्हारे इस सिले को मज़बूरी का ही बस नाम देते हैं। मेरी ज़िन्दगी में आने का शुक्रिया! मुझे मुहब्बत सिखाने का शुक्रिया! मुझे मुझसे [...]

Shall we ever meet again?

  You are the life that I lived And rest of it was a history I never wrote nor read Shall we ever meet again? I believe that would ease the pain And let me and you live That life once more - The chaos in the oceans of our hearts Will reach the shore One day Some day A certain day alok mishra

फिरसे जीने दो – कविता (firse jine do Hindi poem)

प्रतीक्षा की बहुत अब तक, और स्वप्न देखे ना जाने कितने! प्रेम की ये प्रतिध्वनि, तुम्हारी मुखाकृति का वो प्रतिविम्ब आज भी ह्रदय में मेरे सुसज्जित हैं, यथावत। किन्तु अब, जब पुनः सामने लाया तुम्हें मेरे प्रारब्ध, तब, और विलम्ब न होने दो! सुनो, थोड़ा तुम बोलो, कुछ मैं भी कहता हूँ। खुल जाने दो केश अपने, मैं पवन के साथ बहता हूँ। और हाथ में दो मेरे तुम अपना [...]
