Perks of Adulting


Oh dear, beautiful, jovial Child!
Please, do not grow up!
Do not get happy, when freckles show up…
Refrain from the yearning to do Adult things,
For they will chop down, cruelly- thy wings!

Oh dear, beautiful, jovial Child!
Happy, you are, on your own!
If you will Adult, you’ll be happy, as shown…
You fall unto thorns, take them out, forget,
But Adult once, in thy soul thorns will set!

Oh dear, beautiful, jovial Child!
You, only you are the one who can love!
Once you mature, empty feelings they’ll shove
And you’ll be sitting in empty a room
With Emptiness by thy side, facing thy doom!

Oh dear, beautiful, jovial Child!
Don’t hide in the closet, don’t hide under bed!
Perpetual fear is on what Adult is fed…
There is no way out, for Adult is a ghoul…
Thy only safe house is in depth of thy soul!

Oh dear, beautiful, jovial Child!
I beg you, don’t die, however they try!
Get stronger, get childish, wipe your cheeks dry,
Be stupidly brave, face this heinous cult
Please, don’t let me Adult!
Please, don’t let me Adult!

(Yes, you’re right I just used word Adult as a verb, noun and adjective)

Weird Pathology


This song (bard) is written in Hinglish (first time ever by me), so will be relatable to all Hindi+ English speaking people:

“Bachpan ki meri dost- badi yaari hain bhai!
We have each other’s back, right until we die!”
Samay beeta zara, a bit we drew apart!
“Tu usse baat kari!”- (some problem’s in my heart!)

Bagal- tera kandha, honthon pe teri- smile…
(I don’t wanna see him around you for a mile!)
Bachpan ki meri friend, bachpan ka mera ride,
(He’s “dove-ing” her right there),- “My trying’s bonfide…”

“Tujhe kya ho gaya- as if you got a dent?
Please, tell me if he’s good- you’re my best friend!”
Uski baatein sunani- all the way she went…
(She’s more than my friend. How to drop a hint?)

Ye dono- boy & girl- badi ajeeb hain life!
Together & apart, hotey hain ye drive!
You watch them all along- samajh na aawe, haye…
Idhar- udhar ghumein, kyu dikhtey hain ye “high”?

It’s a weird pathology…
It’s a weird pathology…

“Bachpan ka meri dost- badi yaari hain bhai!
We have each other’s back, right until we die!”
Samay beeta zara, a bit we drew apart!
“Tera friend hain bada cute, uspe hain mera heart!”

Bagal- mera kandha, honthon pe meri- smile…
(Ho use kya gaya, why is he tailing for a mile?)
Saath hain mera banda, bachpan ka mera ride,
(Wo hume ghuma rha. This love ain’t bonafide)

(You love me, I’m right and that is the dent
I know he’s no good, because you’re my best friend!)
Uski baatein sunani- all the way I went…
(I’m ready and afraid- please, drop me a hint!)

Ye dono- boy & girl- badi ajeeb hain life!
Together & apart, hotey hain ye drive!
You watch them all along- samajh na aawe, haye…
Idhar- udhar ghumein, kyu dikhtey hain ye “high”?

It’s a weird pathology…
It’s a weird pathology…

A sound evening Crush


“Fairy tale, fairy tale & cartoon life…

I’m the Prince, you’ll be my wife…

La-la-la, la-la-la- they show no strife…

La-la trough!- there goes your life…

Three hours ago I was in town…
And now I feel alone…
That girl- that girl, in that gown…
Now I feel as if reborn…

Like a chute- like a chute, her dress I found…
Look at her- and your mind flies…
But gives no chance to get off ground…
Don’t compliment me!“…- those are lies…

To the left- to the right, now turned around…
I swear, by her side- a Unicorn…

And her heels, make, that hoof sound…

She was there and now she’s gone…

“Fairy tale, fairy tale & cartoon life…

I’m the Prince, you’ll be my wife…

La-la-la, la-la-la- they show no strife…

La-la trough!- there goes your life…

“Where is she- the sweet Unknown?
You appear, change- quite a time…
I’ll see a new and you’ll be gone…
But till then we’re fine…”

Through the Day, through the night…
She is by my side…
We dance and sing… Till there’s light
Though that happens in my mind…

“Sometime from now, when I’ll be alone…
And she’ll be in the sky…
With eyes closed I’ll see the storm…
To the sorrow, say- “Good bye!”

“Fairy tale, fairy tale & cartoon life…

I’m the Prince, you’ll be my wife…

La-la-la, la-la-la- they show no strife…

La-la trough!- there goes your life…”

Breaking Free…


Separating them both...
Separating them both…

Sleepless nights…
Oh- oh!
Soul denies…
Oh- oh!
Wet my eyes…
A wee
Blind my eyes…
But everything I see

The other guy,
took all…
Tore away,
my soul…
But all along,
I knew…
Still I forgot my “faith” in you…

Burn me all,
your talk…
Cold as ice,
your walk…
Shattered heart,
but your good bye hand…
Said:- “Crush it more, into the sand!”

Getting over with you left my heart wide open…
But now I know what I got to do…
Walk up to you,
                  grab your sight,
                           and with my mouth broken:
“Oh, baby, any more- I don’t love you!”

Sleep a bit…
Oh- oh!
Work a bit…
Oh- oh!
Colours around,
all gone…
I see you already,
moved on…

Secrets shared,
Unto the grave…
If you told me,
Once been brave…
You could’ve spared,
All my pain…
Now I see you’ve changed and I talk in vain…

It’s high time,
I mustn’t stop…
“Spare that dime,
Not a word you drop!
Forget about her,
Suit up and walk away…
Oh man, it’s time to walk up and say:- ‘Hey!'”

Getting over with you left my heart wide open…
But now I know what I got to do…
Walk up to you,
              grab your sight,
                       and with my mouth broken:
“Oh, baby, any more- I don’t love you!”

Love of my life…


Hey lady, hey lady, hey lady, hey lady…
I am ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready…
Let’s dance tonight… tonight… tonight…
Let’s dance tonight…
Oh, love of my life…

I see you, not far off, in that dress, with blue strands…
And I feel like heaven, descended and I am in trance…
Oh- oh- and I am in trance…
Through all this turmoil and my drunk big heavy head…
Blinding my eyes. my star is right there ahead…

Oh Tulip, oh Dahlia, oh Lily, oh Chrysanthemum…
My lady ‘s, no flower, but thanks to her Mom…
Drinking her gaze, makes me drunk even more…
But looking at you, my eyes, can never go sore…

Hey lady, hey lady, hey lady, hey lady…
I am ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready…
Let’s dance tonight… tonight… tonight…
Let’s dance tonight…
Oh, love of my life…

My eyes, wide open, as if it’s for first time…
To say that to you, oh you, will be a crime…
Oh- oh- worst crime…
It’s crystal, today, but I feel, way back in time…
That finger, tells me, that love values no time…

My left hand- your waist, my right hand- your hand…
We freeze, hands raised, you twirl, I stand…
I cannot resist, I hold my breath and you so tight…
With your heart beside, I feel so light…

Hey lady, hey lady, hey lady, hey lady…
I am ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready…
Let’s dance tonight… tonight… tonight…
Let’s dance tonight…
Oh, love of my life…

Deep thoughts for Your Birthday


Your eyes are closed…
Your lips froze in pout…
One candle gets dozed…
And everyone gets loud…
Calling mother from the cradle…
Wooden horse and on it’s saddle…
Running to school with such a zest…
Becoming older, becoming best…
I thought I’d write for you even more…
But cake I see and my eyes sore…
And well my battery is five percent…
Happy Birthday, my dear friend!!!

Walk my mind


Hey sunshine, hey rainbow…
You’re all I wanna’ see…
Hey lady don’t lay low…
By my side you should be…

And all that might happen
Will lead to something bright…
My eyesight might dampen
But you’ll be in heart’s sight…

There was this, for a long time
I used to love the moon…
Your voice’s like a wind chime
I’d like to see you soon…

I want to see you soon…
I want to feel you soon…
You’ll come around right?
Stop messing with my mind…

With colours in my mind…
I think of you beside…
But after thinking right
You are just flower like…

You’re one with whom I’d rob…
And one for whom I’d kill…
I don’t want, see you sob…
So I just won’t fall ill…

Stop meddling and come fast
For I possess the key…
In grave my feelings last…
You’ll live past that to see…

But you don’t dare be sad
Just keep our love inside…
With bouquet in my hand
I’ll wait on the other side…

But baby, ironic is this life…
Already live it like a ghost…
Three words to say I strife
Heart loves you but the most…

I want to see you soon…
I want to feel you soon…
You’ll come around right?
Stop messing with my mind…

With colours in my mind…
I think of you beside…
But after thinking right
You are just flower like…

Me to You


People talkin’, People tryin’…
And I don’t know what to do…
So I walk away all cryin’
Coz’ I’ve no one to love…
No one to love…
No one to love…

I want you, walk right beside me…
And I left that up to you…
Demon- Heart is right inside me…
Clawing through my chest to you…

Fear not- I am the right one…
Take no time to think it through…
Feel the breeze and let it flow some…
Flow with me I’m there for you…

People talkin’, People tryin’…
And I don’t know what to do…
So I walk away all cryin’
Coz’ I’ve no one to love…
No one to love…
No one to love…

I’m your bug and you’re my lantern…
And there’s a light coming from you…
In your love, I see a pattern…
Hearts & Hearts and there are you!!!

I’ve told you, we’ve discussed this…
So no more I can see you…
Don’t you ask, whom will I miss…
Fly away- God be with you!!!

People talkin’, People tryin’…
And I don’t know what to do…
So I walk away all cryin’
Coz’ I’ve no one to love…
No one to love…
No one to love…

Fashion


From what you wear,
to your gear…
Among your friends,
to public trends…

Something, that started
with the lion’s skin
And beautified
the hair pin…

From the clothes
on the Barbie doll
To the beauty
pageant’s call…

From the blingy
sticker on your cell
To something viral
that they sell

From curled up lines
around her eyes
To gentlemanly
bows & ties…

Fashion, fashion everywhere,
you happen to blink
Fashion happening over here
nothing left to think!

I’m Sorry


I fooled around,
And I felt sound…
And I was proud
-Ooh, so proud…
You were shy,
And I was loud…
Never thought…
What was that all about!

But now,
I come along,
You walk away…
Day after day!
Day after day!
I start with “Hey!”
You look astray…
Some other life!
Some other day!

But there’s no way
You can mend a heart from shatters…
Nothing one can do that matters!!!
Something in my heart, that tells me
She was the only one for me…

But there’s no way
You can mend a heart from shatters…
Nothing one can do that matters!!!
Something in my heart, that tells me
She was the only one for me…

All of the girls
And the ones I like…
Had every single,
With my mic!
But with them
It all felt alike…
I fell for you,
I did not “like”…

But now,
You’re in my head,
Even when I sleep…
Your love to keep
-I failed to keep!
My heart’s fallen
Very steep…
To save it,
It’d be a giant leap!

But there’s no way
You can mend a heart from shatters…
Nothing one can do that matters!!!
Something in my heart, that tells me
She was the only one for me…

But there’s no way
You can mend a heart from shatters…
Nothing one can do that matters!!!
Something in my heart, that tells me
She was the only one for me…

Still, I remember
Our little thing…
Her in my hands
And I did sing…
In her eyes
Why did mine sink?
I was in love,
Now that I think…

But now,
I caught her up
And touched our heads
Same old feeling,
I can’t see less…
I’m sorry,
I’m such a mess…
No one, but you,
I’d love to kiss…

And there’s a way,
You can mend a heart from shatters
Something one can do that matters
Whole of my heart, that tells me
She is the one for me!

And there’s a way,
You can mend a heart from shatters
Something one can do that matters
Whole of my heart, that tells me
She is the one for me!

That Moment…


Curled mustache,
Jacket of class,
Driven by his clock,
Just like compass,
Golden clips.
He sees a lass
Hesitates not,
Starts to dance…

“I play a jazz song,”
the crowd gets in
“Where’s that guy?”
He cannot be seen!
He knows alright,
To places he’s been…
“Oh, there he is!”
Twisting the floor so keen…

“He’s a great guy!”
           And tossed a coin onto the bar…
Then stretched her leg, out so far…
Like a lady, stepping out of the car…
Drum, saxophone, but not guitar!

The lass sees him,
Out in the crowd…
Twisting,
To me the singer proud…
He twists his leg,
So bold and loud…
To her moves,
It does reach out…

With lacey skirt,
At this great hour…
The lass twists back,
Just like a flower…
Approaching him,
Embarks from the door…
Boom- boom! Clap- clap!
All sing in the choir!!!

“He’s a great guy!”
And tossed a coin onto the bar…
Then stretched her leg, out so far…
Like a lady, stepping out of the car…
Drum, saxophone, but not guitar!

Getting drunk,
By each other’s sight
Waving their hands,
In tact, so right…
Falling in love,
So they might…
Looking at another,
With smile so light!

Well defined,
He catches her hand…
He turns her,
Gentle as a magic wand…
“Crank it up!
          My little band!
They’re in love,
          Don’t you understand?!”

“He’s a great guy!”
And tossed a coin onto the bar…
Then stretched her leg, out so far…
Like a lady, stepping out of the car…
Drum, saxophone, but not guitar!
