Sheeshey… (Glass…) by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’


Sheeshey… (Glass…)

Sandeep Silas ‘deep’

Kahin pe aah nikley, to kahin pe dam nikley

Mere armaan mere khwabon ke barabar nikley

(Somewhere the cry came out, somewhere my breath

My desires found the same fate as of my dreams)

Chah se kabhi kya etbaar aur wafa nikley

Khushi ke kareeb pahunchh dekha, puraney gham nikley 

(Do faith and trust ever get a life just because you love?

What I found near my happiness, was nothing but old wounds)

Jo labrez they dil, ranai-e-mohabbat se

Wo bhi kuchh chatkey huey sheeshey nikley

(The heart that overflowed with the loveliness of love

Came out to be nothing, but pieces of shattered glass)

Tukdey-tukdey zameer main kab tak batorta

Kuey-yaar mein andherey tehkhaney nikley

(How long could I pick up, pieces of her conscience

In the lane of my beloved, I discovered dark alleys)

Saj ke pujta raha mere hathon wo lamha-ba-lamha

Mangney aaye zindagi, to wo bhi khamosh butt nikley

(The One whom I worshipped each moment as I adorned her

She too became a statue of silence, when I asked her for life)

Aye insaan pathar ke butt ki ibadat hi kar le

Shayad uss sey hi kuchh duaon ka jawab nikley

(O Man, worship the statue of stone instead

Perhaps, some answers to life, you might find in prayers)

Zaar na huey mere iradey, na thakey raastey

Mere yaar ke masoom kadam hi kamzor nikley

(Neither my determination is broken, nor my paths tired

The innocent steps of my beloved came out to be weak)

Ghuncha dahan mein chhuppi mohabbat khudgarz nikley

Kya hua iss jahan ko, koi sachha na nikley

(The love hidden in a bud like face, reveals itself so self-centered

What has happened to this world, none is found true anymore)

Haseen baaton se bhartey they jo zindagi

Fareb ki chadar oddey wo samajhdar nikley

(The one who filled my life with sweet nothings

Was found so worldly wise, underneath a veil of deceit)

‘Deep’ si mohabbat aaj koi kar le mujhsey

Aag mein jal kar hi, baati se roshni nikley

(May someone love me like a ‘deep’ today

The wick gives light, only as it burns in the fire)

Raastey by #Sandeep #Silas ‘deep’



Sandeep Silas ‘deep’

Tamam raastey uskey samney they, chalta kis par

Taqdeer ka wo badshah tha, badalta kyun kar

Ishq bhi kiya to Khuda se, ruhaniyat uskey sar 

Ek ek kar ke girtey rahey, insaan chaukhat par

Gairon ka laya zahar peeta raha, wo shahad samajh kar

Uskey qa’atil jo aye they, gaye mureed ban kar

Apney lahu ko bahata raha, jiskey liye zindagi bhar 

Wo jigar ka tukda, hisaab mangta raha, gin gin kar

Moo-e-badan ho gaye chandi, safar mein chal kar

Tajurba iss tilismi duniya ka, pura na hua magar 

Farebi shahar mein rekhta zameer wo chunta kyun kar

Fakeeri uska aalam thi, darakhton ki ameeri uska ghar

Ankhon mein wafa nahin milti ab iss daur mein hamsafar 

Tujhko diye jaatey hain kuchh roshni ‘deep’  apna jaan kar 

(Jan 22, 2017; Delhi; 1.24 pm to 2.07 pm)


Sandeep Silas ‘deep’

So many paths were before him, which one to take?

He was King of his destiny, why would he change?

When he fell in love it was with God, spirituality filled him

One by one the men kept falling, before him at doorstep

He drank the poison brought to him, believing it be honey

Those who came to murder him, went back as his admirers

For the one he kept bleeding his heart his entire life

That portion of heart kept on keeping count of money

 Hair turned silver over his body as he walked the path of life

The experiences of this magic world still he could not live full

In a city of cheats, why would he pick up scattered conscience

A mendicants life was his world, the richness of trees his home

 In these Times you don’t find faith in eyes, my companion

‘Deep” continues to give you some light, thinking you his own

Ummeed by #Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in #Ranai-e-Khayal




Intoxicated with the wealth of your beauty am I

Mirthful is the dawn, dew is spread all around


I remember you sweetheart every day and night

You are the utmost of grace, my playful light


That the lamp of hope, be not extinguished my lady

Therefore ‘deep’ dwells in poetry and is on the rise
