So I counted them tonight And none of them count up to your breath Your trembling, intense, poetic breath. I was lying down on the beach, Trying to fathom the immensity and the breadth, Of your empassioned, rogue, enormous universe, Actually I don't know how to live the moment, But I myself live and love in all your memories, So I keep counting them, till the night ends and your dawn ascends, After the stars have left and the counting arrests, The waking of my nights and the walking of our tests. To be away and to be in love; like really really bad, But to be counting on the shore, on a night like this. I thank the power that is. I thank the you, that is and always will be. In the me, that counts lonely lanterns In nights full of you. #poet #poetry #poem #potrait #poetryofig #poemporn #beaxh #shore #stars #love #romance #life #poetrycommunity #wruter #writing #writer #words #word #literature #art #wonder #thoughts #zkd

Meet Zain Khan Durrani – the hottie from Jammu and Kashmir, who’s the current talk of the town. The former-model has just made his debut with Onir‘s Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz and he’s receiving praises from all quarters. Yes, he’s extremely good looking as well as talented. But there’s something more about him (which I cannot seem to pinpoint) that sets him apart from the rest and makes him stand out. Maybe it’s his raw charm. Here are some photos of the dishy boy for you. Scroll away and feast your eyes.

(Warning: His eyes might pierce your soul and his words might warm the cockles of your heart.)

What have we learnt about romance? A tender gentle rub on lovers skin, Or a gift out of the blue, A surprise of gentle taste, A celebration with words of every thing, That burns like sandal wood in the chest? That too my dear friend. But what about the love that survives distance? The distance in steps and the distance in days. Love that survives reluctance and the notoriety of circumstances. Love that pierces through a heart still in halves, Love that wanders through autumn leaves like a love never lost, Love that crawls up like fire through an unsuspecting field, Love that whirls like cyclones through oceans accompanying rain, Love that puts to death the very twig it warmed through winters, Under a cold earth that mocked any life to have walked its face. What about that love that soothes my lungs full of your tears? For how are you breathing but with your very face buried deep in my chest. Romance me my dear darlings memory, her essence and her mystery, Of how she said I was her to her seeking, and in that I ceased to be anything but him.

Sometimes my soul askance, Walks to yours with stifled feet, Across the lanes that lay quiet, Around your luniniscent threshold. Sometimes it gallops through crowds, A foot as far as the eye can see, Across the arms of your jubilant galaxies, To your swirling, radiant core. In all these journeys I take to you, My heart always asks its spirit, What colour do we present to you, What gifts do we lay out bare? And you gently whisper through Your somnolent, inviting eyes, Our friendship is that longed gift, Our entire beings have been waiting for. And thus you give meaning, To that long lasting flare of ache, That I took pleasure in as I took My first steps across lands unknown. And thus you say, come explore, My friend, my ache, my dream, And thus you say, enter solitude, Come sit and have some poetry with me. And I quietly slip into a beautiful day dream.

When you know who your real enemy is. Anything that takes you away from yourself. Anything that distracts you from what's worth your while. Anything that flips your kindness. Anything that makes you see dark in abundant. Anything that doesn't let you sleep easy at night. Anything that feels like that sinking feeling. Anything that feels like it's not meant to be. Anything that forces you to forget your roots. Anything that doesn't ground you. Anything that inflates that false sense of ownership, of territories and of possessions! Anyone who can look back through the mirror and fake it right into your eyes. Mostly that's just you, yourself. Beat it this 2018. Go for it. Happy New Year. #poet #poetry #poem #enemy #positivity #love #life #inspirational #beard #beardedmen #poetsofinstagram #words #writer #wordsthatheal #wordwide #wordsofwisdom #think #change #zkd

"Heaven" And then one day we are woken up From our deep sleep To see the residue of that dream Burn away from the edges Of our drowsy light spinning. And maybe some beautiful memories Sway down Off its stretching shoulders Like morning dew descending on tender spring leaves. And that day we shall know That is all of that burning Of that feared hell we spoke off Sleepily. That is all of that bliss Of that coveted heaven We dream off within that dream. Before we lift our eyes To be blinded by what drowns us. Overwhelms our wings Takes them by the ends And leads them into flight. A flight for a sunny day A journey across a burning night That day will be a million freedoms That night will be a thousand ecstasies.

It's an enormously tender feeling to be left numb. We more often than naught, leave this unnoticed. Mistaking it for a hollow, that demands nothing out of our consciousness. A peek into it on the peak of nature's numb mountain top, that spelled autumn over looking a valley covered in haze, told me how this virtual meadow with floating edges in the mind ached for acknowledgement. Not out of questions left answered but just plain realisation of this field in the mind. In the soul. The empty spaces that are beacons for a new learning, of a scale that runs higher as now you step on it. A stage set in the energy you thrive on, telling you to step up. Move in to the horizon that will always be chased, but it's not just at one end of all the rubble and the buildings of the previous times, and the roads that got you here after much roaming around, but all around this plane. You aren't in a room with a staircase and hundreds along with you trying to get to the top. You're on your own meadow and you're a child raring to run around, till the dark and then make love to the stars. That tender numb, is telling you to embrace the meaning beyond the finite. #poet #poetry #writer #writing #writer #inspire #meadow #nature #childinyou #discovery #explore #aim #fly #life #philosophy #art #nature #stars #zkd Thank you @iamonir for the click. And for the trek. Your idea! A memorable one.

I have read all the notes you never sent, Pasted along the kind contours of your chest. I have heard all the letters being written before they met paper, I have sung all the songs before they met the colour of your lips. And I learnt a new kind of longing, A craving that hardly ever goes, Yes, even if your chest was fused against mine, Even if My hands and yours danced together across that paper, As our lips sang the song off of each other. Even then. This would hardly ever go. From you, I learnt a new kind of loving.

You have been a dancer Smoking the resurfacing emotions And drunk on the reflections of your own dance You look so beautiful Your arms are rummaging through my vision, And entering me with a disdain Only fair for the rhythm you attain. I sit on a melting mound, The soil has slowly slid down The light is paring the earth beneath me I am transfixed on your movements, For a few moments I had forgotten to fall. Only the fire in the fire warms me now, That which dwells on your palm, I slept a hollow sleep in the day yesterday, And woke up feeling you had touched my face. You were smiling and I was listening, To the sound of glaciers dripping, When after the long winter, The summer finally comes. Like that bit by bit, Every time you move your smile from end to end, And lend me the vision of your face flustered, I sit down like a rich beggar, And wish I was a painter too beyond words, So for every time you swirl around and lend me a little glimpse, Of your heart that's hardly yours, I could paint the shy delight on your face, And bury myself in the quiet besides your stage, Where you perform for me and the world hears you say, I called you beautiful and you changed your name.

How many lost loves my love, How many flying gazes past you by? How many times have you lost? Show me the times you slept unsteady. And I have had the same, I have always been the lost one, The one falling and tripping, On a gaze disarming and a smile trapping, I have been like you, I have lost in love. So don't say goodbye, we both know, You and I are not the only ones, And we will never be the only ones, Perturbed and unfound in this forest, We are not the only ones, Looking at unbloombed flowers And remembering beloveds, We are not the only ones shrieking Inside burning chests and murderous minds. How many lost loves my love? So many of them and yet here we are, Still learning the art, Of letting go.

"Escape Monotony" Art is possible, impossible, too long, Life too short, too real, Freedom is possible, escape is probable, As deep as your thirst goes, As deep as you can let go. Love is inevitable, disastrous, magical, Art is a mirror, to the jugular, on fire, Life is mutable, gullible, undependable, Love too tender, just brittle enough, Passable, sprinkles passion on life, Thus begins art in a tiny battle, Unbeatable, insurmountable, Ends up becoming a war, Unpartable from art, Indivisible from life, Incomplete without love. -ZKD #poet #art #artist #poetry #poem #poetsofig #love #romance #piemaofig #poetrycommunity #writer #words #wordgasm #wordporn #life #indiancouture #anitadongre #mensfashion #indian #menwithbeard #beardedmen #beard #zkd
