Just Penned!! – Give Me Nothing But You


What else I’ve got
To think..to talk..to brood over?!
It is the glimpse of Thy mercy
I’m enchanted with
Yet I’m shocked
Why upon me?!

Will! be! here!
You will
You be
You be here
What else I’ve got
To think..to talk..to brood over?!

Presence is Thy face
I’m mesmerized with
Thy essence is my song
I’m lured with
Kill the moments that leave and throng
Hold me on forever and long
What else I’d need
To think..to talk..to brood over?!

The vapour of Thy smooch
Still keeps my soul in Thy tremor
Fervent heart squirms weak
Drinking currents of Thy lightning
Trance takes its chance
Makes me dance

I see..see..see
Not sure it’s You or me
Hu..Hu..is that You
Hu..Hu..come in view
Oh, there you swirl and fade
Hu..Hu.. it’s not new

Mercy! Mercy! Mercy
Shower upon me forever
For I flow singing You
As merrily as a tender river

Give me nothing but You
Ask not do I deserve You
By Thy mercy I plea You
By Thy mercy take me for You
By Thy mercy admit my love
By Thy mercy take what I owe
By Thy mercy
By Thy mercy
By Thy mercy
In Thee let me dwell

I’m pleased to think
What else I’d need
To think..to talk..to brood over and ink?!

Just Penned!! – Let All the Ripples Abide


From manifesting thy thought

From admiring thy art!

From the quest of being sung

From affairs and filthy fun

From the mad rush and run

From a knowing unknowing pun

From rages’ and mirages’ dun

From praising the maze of then

From the lure of thy heart
From admiring thy art

Let all the ripples abide
Hands pick that lay grounded
Hands only pick that lay grounded
Hands only pick that lay grounded

Let Him be!

Just Penned!! – As perennial as You


I have a treasured cup of wine
With wine as clear as water
Whenever fear brims
I drink at once
Then fill it with Thy love
And sip slowly
When at last
My chest is with love
I fill again with fear
To brew more of Thy love’s wine

My cup empties then and now
I have no cask of wine stored
Yet it fills with fear and love
For love brews fear and fear brews love

My flesh is always hot
For it adds soul to my love
My sweat is losing salt
Thy sweetness is all I owe

I’m a rolling particle of love
Losing mass with Thee
The plumes I’ve shed
Have fled to Thee
Carrying songs of my love

Keep filling my cup
Keep me in trance and up
Keep me as a word of peace
Keep me for Thy word of peace
Let me sing with all ease
The pain of Thy tease..tease..tease

If at all my cup is broken
Wine would flood the world
Keep me in Your company
Let flow Thy love’s symphony
As perennial as You
As perennial as my love for You!

Just Penned!! – Wandering in Thy Brace


Tambourine thunks
Thumb thumb thumb
At the banks of a river perennial!

There crackles the fire on woods
Swaying a hip with air

The serene giggles of the river perennial
Wove a song of my soul in length

Waving through the currents of water
With the blast of air wooing the soul

Every moment tipped into time
Fell glittering with Thy light deemed

Only my footprints stayed then
I was wandering in Thy brace’s awe

The river flowed as river
Ashes from the woods dived into her

The crackles of fire were
Adding rhymes to thoughts

And I, was lost
In the thunk of the tambourine
That hath then turned
Hu Hu Hu Hu!

Just Penned!! – With Thy beauty so whole!


The mix of dew and drops of rain
Inebriated me with You!
The drunken heart is helpless
From singing You in view!

There You creep
In wreaths You twirl
There You burst
Thy honey in swirl

The sprinkle of Thy love’s tide
Is bringing out of what I hide
My soul is on a merry ride
I’m not tired! I’m not tired!

Love painted smile in my soul
With Thy beauty so whole!
I’m on a frenzy stroll and roll
With ecstasy with no count of toll!

Oh! lovely fog of love
Cloak my senses off the road
Let me sink in Thy wine of love
Let me drink Thy song of love
Let Thy song drink all my soul
Make me a drop of Thy sweat in whole!

Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
I’m frenzy and a bit lazy
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
I’m trendy and a bit oldy
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Come Shams! Come to me Rumi!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Let’s swirl and sing joy to the gloomy
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
I’m drunk!
I’m drunk!
I’m drunk my buddy
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Hu! Hu! Hu! Hu!
Ah! lost!

Just Penned!! – Reed of love


My reed of love sung in love
To soothe the rage of the inner waves
The inner waves waved in rhyme
Adding soul to soul of music

The breeze of the seas
Flaunted my reed in bout
My soothed soul blew in turn
Adding taste to the salt

Sour winds calmed down
Reed was tired of the song blown
The frenzy soul was still in swirl
In joy, in gay, in awe in whole

I puffed my soul through the reed
Having attained the birth’s need
Sow me now on the shore as a seed
I’ll breed into music again
Need no water, no reed!

Singing the eternity I’ve crossed death
Stay quiet and listen in depth
Music is; I’m not!

Just Penned!! – A sudden moment of light


Keeping hopes in air
Lips tight and love bright
Speaking the heart’s affair
Closing the slits of ignorance
In search of the light eternal within

The not-much-long path
Winds and unwinds
Keeping me in the vaccuum’s axis

At times it strucks
Am I in motion
Or stranded in illusion?!

Risen hands in prayer
Listens to nothing back
Is there something I lack?!
Or this silence wants me to pack?!

A sudden moment of light
Pierced through me into silence
The slit of pain spake thus
“Silence surrounded was Him in whole
And His reply lies in your soul!”

Just Penned!! – Breeding Barren Soul


For so long
I’ve been empty
Come, Fill me love!

From the moment
Thy love bloomed in me
I love my chest
For it treasures Thee!

Your will is my tryst
The inscribed bond of love
With numerous conditions
For Thy love unconditional

My barren soul is breeding
With bleeding moments of pain
Thy love blooms in tips of thorns
Thy grace soothes the grain

Unearth me from the depth of dreams
Into the realm of Thy real love
My flesh stinks still with lust
Redeem me before dust to dust
