She walks in beauty by George Gordon, Lord Byron

Posted by Uday Shankar on Friday, April 13, 2012, In : Poetry 
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, y...

Am I ?

Posted by Uday Shankar on Saturday, January 14, 2012, In : Poetry 

Don’t know who I am,

Am I right or wrong?

Am I weak or strong?

Am I someone’s someone?

Or just a selfish I am.

Am I what I am?

Or am I what I aspire to be?

Am I the philosophy I follow?

Or am I the act I do?

Really don’t know who I am.

अक्सर ज़िन्दगी के अनजान सफ़र में,
मुसाफिरों के काफिले बन जाते हैं |
औरों के रस्ते हमारी रहे बन जाते हैं,
अपने गिरेबान दूसरों के साये बन जाते हैं,
मुश्किल राहों पे हमसफ़र सहारे बन जाते हैं,
तूफान म...

Unknown Desires

Posted by Uday Shankar on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, In : Poetry 
Am i restricted myself 
from pleasures,
or its just illusions of

unknown desires.

It would have been different,
don't know right or wrong,
if i am on the edge
and leaped forward being strong.

All the deeds not done
for all kinds of reasons,
haunts me sometimes
in the lonely seasons.

Hope everything happens
for a mysterious cause,
still unknown of it, but 
i am not the same person i was.

Love Again

Posted by Uday Shankar on Monday, January 31, 2011, In : Poetry 
I want to know someone
I want to be understood
I want to share pain
I want to be in love again

Neither for any reason
Nor because of desire
Not even for any gain
I want to be in love again

To let myself
and my whole life
in someone's name
I want to be in love again

Take care and dedication
For dependency and affection
Play crazy and insane
I want to be in love again

राख  में  बुझती  हुई चिंगारी सोचती है
कोई  फूँक  दे  तो  धधक  के  जल  जाऊं
या  धीरे  धीरे  सुलगते  हुए  राख  बन  जाऊं

कुछ  देर  में  भी  जली  थी  साथियों  के  साथ
सब  छोड़  गए  उसे  बस  उनके  अवशेष  है

एक नयी सोच

Posted by Uday Shankar on Saturday, August 28, 2010, In : Poetry 
एक  नयी  सोच, एक  नया  ख्याल
ज़िन्दगी  को  देखने  का  नया  दृष्टिकोण
बदल  जाती  है  यूँ  ज़िन्दगी
लेकर  पल  भर  का  मौन

धारा  सी  फूट  पड़ी  है  कहीं  पत्थरों  से
और  बहती  ही  चली  जाती  है
सुलगती  ज्वालामु...

ज़िन्दगी ...

Posted by उदय शंकर on Sunday, May 30, 2010, In : Poetry 
खोने के बाद ही न होने का एहसास होता है,
यह समझते ही नहीं जब वो पास होता है |
यह दिल जब कभी भी निराश होता है,
उससे न मिल पाने का और भी आभास होता है |
जब उसे फिर से पाने का आस होता है,
में ज़मीन और वोह आका...

Leave me alone
I wanna destroy my world
I will not mourn
I want to go mad

Every word said is poking
and every sound is disturbing
Air is such suffocating
I feel like losing

Restlessness is killing me
but I dont want to sway
I want some peace
I want to get away

Live Awake

Posted by uday on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, In : Poetry 
Is love blind? ask ugly
Does money matter? ask poor
You don't have to ponder
you ll get the answer for sure

As the world is biased
these things seems sunny
you can be easily be fooled
as these phrases are many

At last you have to decide
where is your stake
stay fool and be happy
or be thoughtful and live awake

Love and Life

Posted by Uday Shankar on Monday, January 25, 2010, In : Poetry 
Quest for happiness
begins everyday,
sometimes it rains,
sometimes are grey.

Hope the quest
never ends,
as each day,
new message it sends

Messages for life
ugly and sour.
Messages for love
beautiful and pure.

These starts
and end with the same.
Love and Life,
is all part of the game.

Boy is a growing man

Posted by Uday Shankar on Thursday, December 3, 2009, In : Poetry 
Boy is a growing man
Strive to do whatever he can
Still not enough he had ran
Desires to be a proud lad of his clan

Uncertainty come in mind and vanish
As language of life is so gibberish
It often makes us look foolish
And it always astonish

Hopes are the ones to count
Of all possibilities taken into account  
But even hopes take its amount
As nothing in this world is on discount

If nothing is going as plan
Revise as the poem began
Boy is a growing man
Strive to do whatever he can

One day ...

Posted by Uday Shankar on Wednesday, November 25, 2009, In : Poetry 
I was passing by the pathway
admiring the beautiful spring day
listening romantic songs play
wanting that moment to stay
suddenly a girl passes by
her dress blue as sky
but i dont know why
as i looked into those black eye
she looked like someone near by
she looks tender and shy
and made my mind fly
and left me there stand by

Elope with Dreams

Posted by Uday Shankar on Friday, November 20, 2009, In : Poetry 
Some decisions are hard to make,
as there are always alternate paths to take.
Alternates always make things easy for our sake
but to win the final race you have to give your stake.
This requires courage and strong heart
as dears are the one, hard to part
but if there is need of new start
then these decisions make people smart.
New beginning and new hope
there is all new world of scope.
There is nothing greater to cope
but there is a beautiful world to elope.

We can always look back someday
as memories o...

Yahi to life hai

Posted by Uday Shankar on Wednesday, September 23, 2009, In : Poetry 
Aam ke bag se aam churana,
kichad mein lot pot ho jaana
upar aakaash tak patang udana
taaron ko ginte ginte soo jaana
Yahi to life hai...

maa ke god mein sar rakh kar sona
papa se nayi cycle ki jid karna
bhai behan ka gussa hona aur manana
dadi, nani se kahaniyan sunana
Yahi to life hai ...

Anjaan logon se ghul mil jaana
jigri doston se hamesha ke liye bichhad jaana
kisi ko zindagi bhar ka saath banana
anjaan raahon ka bichhade yaaron ko milana
Yahi to life hai ...

Life's not fair

Posted by Uday Shankar on Tuesday, July 28, 2009, In : Poetry 
We do good deeds,
and we want its share,
But the truth is that
Life's not fair.

We take all precautions
but lose things we care
Again the cause is that
Life's not fair.

We want to be perfect
so that the err will be rare
but adjust with the fact that
Life's not fair.

All along the life
we want to make things square
to know at the end that
Life's not fair.

One Day

Posted by Uday Shankar on Tuesday, June 23, 2009, In : Poetry 
One day I would be the king,
and there wouldn't be any suffering.
For only that day i am living,
That day it would be worth dying.

Friends are to care,
Friends are to share,
You cant live without them,
Friends are so dear.

Friends are for treat,
Friends are so sweet.
You forget all pain when,
Friends you meet.

Friends are to tease,
Friends are to please,
You have any problem,
Friends makes problems cease.

Beautiful days

Posted by Uday Shankar on Friday, April 17, 2009, In : Poetry 
We had our first glance,
that was the start of our romance.
Then we had a small talk
while we had a pleasant walk.

We had some fortunate encounters
and we became regular chatters.
We always enjoyed each others company
so we started meeting few times ... then many.

Love was in the air,
each other was all, we care.
One day those feelings were expressed.
From that moment life get blessed.

We had our first fight,
but we can't live without others sight.
so we make up our mind,
to never leave each other behind.

Broken Heart

Posted by uday on Monday, April 13, 2009, In : Poetry 
There is not a single sound
And no part of earth is shaken
There isn't any pieces thrown on ground
When someone's heart is broken

The world stopped existing,
The life started twisting.
All thoughts begin taunting,
All hopes are haunting.

Everything changes in a matter of time
There is no way to avoid the crime
Still the life should go on...
As night always precedes the dawn

That is the time to think 
What had not gone right?
As the world repeats itself
Remember the heart's plight

To Err is Human...

Posted by uday on Tuesday, March 24, 2009, In : Poetry 
To err is human,
And I am the man,
Who is one of the,
Err of divine.

Mistakes are what others sometimes do,
Mistakes are all what I can do,
Learn to avoid it, what others do,
Learn new ways to cause it, what I do.

God made me as an example,
of what not to be done,
My actions are those which,
shouldn't be repeated by anyone.

Its not that easy for me,
to live like that,
its needs courage, strength,
and a really strong heart.

Some times i think i am crazy,
but its all what I am,
I have grown with it,
and it burn i...

I closed my eyes contemplating
the thoughts came slowly skating
foaming bubling soaring aviating
all new dreams are creating...

In the realms of thoughts and dreams
some memories down the streams
somethings beautiful as it seems
came and gone the creamy gleams...

many mysterical mind's marvels
instantiating many different levels
many distingushed paths unravelled
stranger than gulliver travels...
