Mr. Nice Guy

I'm done being pushed around
Whenever you make me feel down
Before I never made a sound
But this time I ain't gonna be your clown

Girl, you hurt my sensitivity
Now I've got no sensibility

Tired of the same old lie
Sick of every last goodbye
Won't go easy on you this time
No more Mr. Nice Guy

Can't count the number of guys you've slept with
It's suffice to say I don't give a shit
Ignorance is bliss
But standing you is sin

Girl, you awoke my curiosity
Now I'm left with misery

Tired of the same old lie
Sick of every last goodbye
Won't go easy on you this time
No more Mr. Nice Guy

Now I'm done being Nice
I'll be the bad boy that you like
I'm done playing Nice
I'll become what I despise...

Highway Lights

On my way to Al Ain
Looking into the rearview
As Dubai fades away

My bag in the back
Listening to a Daughtry track
To help keep me awake

Tell me how to make right
Every wrong turn that I've learned
So this can all end tonight

Highway Lights
Just changed my mind
Well, it's my heart I'll follow this time...

All my Life

All my Life
Life has put my emotions to the test
Every season
As depressing as the next

Whenever a loved one gets hurt
And vanishes into the abyss
I wipe my tears of blood
To be able to reminisce

How mistaken am I?
Not to cherish my forsaken Life
Anyone who's ever stolen my heart has it given back
That's why it's still in my chest

All my Life
Life has put my emotions to the test
From a fresh perspective I look at Life
It reflects me as a dead man

How troubled am I?
As I struggle to reminisce
But how can I?
As I had no happy moments to live...

Bound by Blood

Moon-drunk
I still remember the stars in her eyes
My heart is always out on the hunt
And it does not believe an angel's lies

In simple terms impure
Our so-called love is just for show
There is no well-known cure
Like a blood-filled river it will flow

We were never in love
What foul oath we swore?
We are Bound by Blood
Which boils at the core

I still remember the shine in her eyes
The wetness of her lips
I do not believe an angel's lies
The day I die my heart will be burned to a crisp

Remember we are Bound by Blood
Nothing more...

Desert Sun

I've been loveless in Lahore
And hopeless in Helsinki
Yet I'm not gonna let go
Of my damsel in Dubai

Tattooed poetry on my skin
Nothing could've masked the pain
Each part burned with the addition of sin
Not sure if I'm in love or insane

Because girl I'm tired of being ignored
Is love fairer than war?
This question keeps beating me at the core
With despair my eyes are sore

Now I've been loveless in Lahore
Still I wasn't bound to be dying there
Because I came upon a lore
That said my sweetheart would be residing here

But girl you just won't admit
When we met a fire was lit
Now we both crave for it
With love metal playing in the background with the utmost pitch

And I don't want any more of this
Desert Sun shimmering on your lips
Taking pictures under Burj Khalifa's silhouette
What a summer of bliss

When the Arabian moon shone on your face
I realized in my life there was a misplacement of grace
An awakening occurred of new taste
Next thing I know the veins of our loneliness became interlaced...

Made Love

We kept our feelings under a veil of obscurity
But when I'm with you I never feel any insecurity

And I still remember all our flirtations under the sun

By the fireplace our skin was glistening
Even after the foreplay we're still kissing

As we Made Love...

Red

You look as good in those clothes
As you do exposed
And there ain't no doubt
I wanna get close

Always attracting me
Distracting me
Your grace never stops
Fascinating me

Matching Red lipstick
With your Red shalwar kameez
You've caught me Red-handed
Proposing on my knees

You blush as bright in that dress
As you do undressed
And there ain't no doubt
I wanna have sex

Always adoring me
Imploring me
Your face never stops
Exploring me

Matching Red lipstick
With your Red shalwar kameez
You've caught me Red-handed
Proposing on my knees...

First Kiss

Your temptations
Insatiable
My fascinations
Unimaginable

Your figure
Unbelievable
My temper
Irreconcilable

And I still remember
It was as warm as September

Do you still reminisce
About our First Kiss?
My lips on your lips
My fingertips on your hips

Your beauty
Inconceivable
My personality
Ungrateful

Your love
Unconditional
My lust
Irrational

And I still remember
We smooched like no other

Do you still reminisce
About our First Kiss?
My lips on your lips
My fingertips on your hips

I found bliss on your lips
And your butter-cream soft hips
Do you still reminisce
About our First Kiss? ...

With My Bare Hands

I smoke you
With tobacco that never ends
I choke you
With My Bare Hands

I'm a rapist lyricist
My life a living nightmare
I've got a sadomasochistic itch
Because lust isn't fair

I poke you
With desire that never ends
I choke you
With My Bare Hands

I cannot stand
Your eternal grace
I cannot understand
Why it keeps me awake

I stroke you
And your curly hair-ends
I choke you
With My Bare Hands

I'm a hopeless romantic
My poetry a dying breed
I'm an insatiable addict
Without hurting you I can't breathe...

Fake

Note: About having sex with a person who we feel sexually attracted to but not emotionally.

The waves rise up
As we make love
The cracks of the earth shut up
As we make love

The roots from the ground rise up
As we make love
Those nearby shut up
By the sounds of our earthly love

The hotness is external
As we make love
But nothing feels internal
As we make love

We are making love without being in love
And that is why we Fake love...

Charmed

Must've been black magic
The way you Charmed me
With a soft-blonde hair flick
Such a seductive trick

Diverted my attention
When I was on the Highway to Hell
Stole the meaning of perfection
And turned it into your own adjective

Poetry's just a ritual
To get you on the mattress
Under the bedsheets without the robes
Unusually I'm not tense

Life's too critical
For a beauty like you to live in it
Would you be my hypnotism catalyst?
That charges me to sin

I'll be anything you say
Without regret
I'd fade away
Without quenching my thirst in the Sahara Desert

If the journey's end would lead me to you
Afterwards I'll be forgiven
Your presence would sooth
Please be my womanly heaven

Poetry's just too typical
Whispering words in your ear and you laugh sexily
Teasing comes natural
I'll feel you as long as you feel me...

Hope (is for the Hopeless)

"Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man". - Friedrich Nietzsche

If I cry tears of joy
Can you turn them into a flood of melancholy?
If I reveal unspoken lies
Can you convert them into a truthful melody?

No

If I reside in the light
Can you shove me into the pit?
If I grieve in silence
Can you erase all of it?

No

Hope is such a bitter word
It is for the Hopeless
Each day in this world
Every moment you love me less

Your hair was raven-black
Kept as long as it could unfold
If the realm was under attack
I would never let you get cold

Your skin was white as butter-cream
Complexion irresistible
We were a perfect team
The ending though horrible

Hope is such a bitter word
It prolongs the torment
Of my dying soul
Love can be anything but heaven-sent...

Far-fetched

Life is a debt
Paid by my heart's crest
And I survive in loneliness

Love is a liability
The chosen one has no availability
And I listen in silence

Your words differ from your deeds
Intentions so wrong that the soul bleeds
Awaiting your return

My words are too beautiful to be true
You are too be real to be you
This realm will burn

Our relationship is too Far-fetched
The basis of love is not etched
In our hands

Did you go where Cupid led?
With so many tears shed
To the forgotten lands

Where dreams are vacant streams
Melodies painful as being stung by bees
Romance becomes forgettable

The heart wishes to see what it wants to
Skies are grey when they should be blue
You are still unattainable

Our togetherness is too bleak
A life together is what we seek
But dying is the only remedy

To be alone in this fragile world
Not to feel loved only hurt
Life is a bittersweet symphony...

Neck 2

I still want you dearly
Even connoisseurs can't deem the price
Nowhere else the source of my lust is shown so clearly
Than in your eyes

I want you to be suffocated
By my delicate grasp
I want you to be hated
By others who favor that gasp

One leg over the other
You sit across from me
I intend to wave aside those curly locks from your shoulder
And kiss thy Neck

I want to shove my manliness inside
As I whisper poetry in your ear
Then bite the lobe
When I feel my finality drawing near

I want to run my fingers all over your throat
And feel those burning veins
I don't care if you choke
At least my fantasy was not in vain...

Rape

I got what I wanted
Your body
The warmth had flooded
All over me

Atmosphere was under pressure
So was your skin
Your face a faceless treasure
Makes me want to sin again

I got what I wanted
Yet something was amiss
Yes there was something
More than a passionless kiss

I overlooked taking your love out
Before I had to depart
Forcing love without getting caught
I forgot to Rape your heart... 

Neck

I want you so dearly
Even angels can't name the price
Nowhere else the value of my love is shown so clearly
Than in your eyes

I want to be submerged
In your warmth
I want to be heard
By your love

I want to run my fingers down
Your jet-black hair so long
I want to drown
In your blood and in the end mutter so long

I want to hold you underneath the moonlight
And then sniff the skin on your Neck
With my teeth that yearn to bite
In the end I don't care if I go to heck

I want to run my fingers down your slender nape
And then dig them inside
I want to lick your whole body without it being showcased as rape
And then skin it until it's ripe...

The Diplomat of Al Ain

I don't know if I can sympathize enough
I've been sympathized enough
I don't know if I can sympathize enough
I've got no political background

I'm a dominating aggressive regressive
The past is over
Now submissive seems so pathetic

Are we racist, raped or rapist?
Are we racist, raped or rapist?

I feel so in love like an extremist
And I'm ready to meet my maker
I feel so in love like an extremist
And I'm ready to meet my maker

Bush has got no dirt on me
Bush has got no dirt on me
And I'll rise to every occasion
I'm the Republican-elect of Al Ain

I don't know if I can emphasize enough
I've been emphasized enough
I don't know if I can emphasize enough
I've got no biased history

Are we fascist, human or atheist?
Are we fascist, human or atheist?

I feel so in love like a heretic
And I'm ready to meet my Maker
I feel so in love like a heretic
And I'm ready to meet my Maker

Rushdie has got no dirt on me
Rushdie has got no dirt on me
And I'll rise to every occasion
I'm the Democratic-elect of Al Ain...

Persian Beauty

The curves of your hourglass figure
Redefine fantasy
The nerves of my body hinder
At the sight of your Beauty

Your brunette locks, I miss
The snow-white skin, the fulsome and rounded hips
Suffice to say this, I have the kiss
Of a Persian Beauty, on my lips

The words your mouth utter
Rewrite history
Love or lust it doesn't matter
At the sleight of your Beauty

Your brunette locks, I miss
The snow-white skin, the fulsome and rounded hips
Suffice to say this, I have the kiss
Of a Persian Beauty, on my lips...

Sweet Talk

Is there truth in your lies?
Is there finality in your goodbyes?
I'm too caught up in this deal to know

Is there decency in how you feel?
Is there reality in what you consider real?
I'm too caught up in this ordeal to know

You've left me a loveless man
A foolish and hopeless person
Who should make you understand
That you can't Sweet Talk a heartless man

Is there beauty in your deceit?
Is there another guy in my seat?
I'm too caught up in your alibis to know

Is there any man above me?
Do you even still love me?
I'm too caught up in your eyes to know

You've left me a loveless man
A foolish and hopeless person
Who should make you understand
That you can't Sweet Talk a heartless man...




 


Realistic Love

In this superficial world
Where we judge by appearances
Instead of considering life a curse
Can we do what the heart pleases?

Used to wear my heart on the sleeve
Now I just don't want to be deceived

Instead of being my materialistic girl
Would you be my Realistic Love?
Something we both deserve
To fall not falter in Love

And we only live once
No time for false pretenses
Instead of considering intimacy a nuisance
Can we rely on our humane senses?

Used to wear my heart on the sleeve
Now I just want to re-believe

Instead of being my materialistic girl
Would you be my Realistic Love?
Something we both deserve
To fall not falter in Love

Could we pause fantasies for a moment?
And make realities a constant
Used to wear my heart on the sleeve
Now I just want to re-believe

Instead of being my unrealistic girl
Would you be my Realistic Love?
Something we both deserve
To fall not falter in Love...

Emotional Rape

I'd rather you charm me then disarm me
Instead of hurting my heart
I'd rather you unfold me then troll me
Instead of hurting my heart

I was dominating but you were the enforcer
And only my brutalities were caught on tape
You and me know the true story
Of this Emotional Rape

I'd rather you see me then free me
Instead of hurting my heart
I'd rather you tease me then release me
Instead of hurting my heart

I was on top but you planted the crop
And only my fantasies were caught on tape
You and me know the true story
Of this Emotional Rape... 

The Narcissist

I don't know if I can change
What if the devil's deal was a scam?
I don't know if I can change
Fate is just sarcasm

I've been a pessimist, optimist, realist
I've been a racist, fascist, sadist
Now I'm nothing
'Cause I fell in love with a Narcissist

I don't know if I can change
Or love without being raped
I don't know if I can change
Too many emotions faked

I've been a believer, deceiver, unbeliever
I've been a racist, fascist, sadist
Now I'm nothing
'Cause I fell in love with a Narcissist...

Save this Romance

This poem is about a person who is in a relationship, yet falls for somebody else too, so they write how an affair is impossible without ending the prior relationship. The verses are in English and Urdu.

Saw you on an eventide
A serendipitous sight
And I loved you
Before I met you

You, I wish to embrace
It's not the time and place
And it can't be
I'm sorry


It's like we've talked a thousand times
And made love with our eyes

But tonight is not the night
I'm with somebody else and I can't lie
With me and you, it's never good bye
Save this Romance for another life

Guilty in my mind
Because I can't close my eyes
My spirit
Can hear it

So let the serenade play
The choices I can't make
To feel you
Conceal you

It's like we've walked a thousand miles
To make love with our eyes

Magar aaj raat nahi hai humari raath
Mai guzaar raha hu iss ko kisi or ke saath
Kabhi alvida nahi ho tha humaray darmiyaan
Save this Romance for another life

Without you
Wish that tomorrow was all about you
But that's not right
I'll meet you in another life

But tonight is not the night
I'm with somebody else and I can't lie
Kabhi alvida nahi ho tha humaray darmiyaan 
Save this Romance for another life...



 

Meri Jaan

This is a lyrical poem comprising of verses in English, Urdu and Arabic. Meri Jaan means My Beloved in English, Maafi maloom means I don't know, Jaani means Lover, and Habibi means Beloved.

Meri Jaan
Only in a dream I ever thought you'd find me
Meri Jaan
Fell into a kiss and left the world behind me

Easy to believe a poet's lies
But what if the truth's in my eyes?
And you can see it, so there's a reason to stay
Although they say

Never trust a poet's word
But what if he's in love?
Never ever trust a poet's word
Every fantasy of yours I serve

Meri Jaan
Never was a touch enough to just persuade me
Meri Jaan
Now that I can feel my heart my thoughts evade me

Easy to believe a poet's lies
But what is there's too much beauty in her eyes?
And I can see it, so there's a reason to stay
Although they say

Never trust a poet's word
But what if he's in love?
Never ever trust a poet's word
Every verse of mine you deserve

If this is love
Maafi maloom
If this is lust
Maafi maloom

Oh, Jaani
I think I'm in love with you
Oh, Habibi
What can I do?

Oh, Meri Jaan
I think I've fallen for you! ...

Grace of God

You are the tenderness that falls into my arms
By the Grace of God
You are the guardian angel that keeps me away from harm
By the Grace of God

You are my one and only faith
By the Grace of God
You are what characterizes fate
By the Grace of God

Found you, gained everything
That was the only moment I had no regret
Let me drown in you and become undone
So that I can never forget

You are my only testament
By the Grace of God
You are what encircles my enlightenment
By the Grace of God

I have marooned from my past existence
So that together our hearts can melt
Found you, lost nothing
That was the only second I wish to spend again

You are my sanity and my insanity
By the Grace of God
You are the reality of my dreams
By the Grace of God

My calling to the prayer
The one to depend upon
My falling to the heart-slayer
The shoulder I lean upon

You are my last words
By the Face of Dove
You are my final breath
By the Taste of Love...

Heaven on Earth

Rushed past me
Like the wind from Heaven
Brushed past me
Like the flame of temptation
Hushed past me
Whispering the seven deadly sins all forgiven

You found me and I witnessed
Heaven on Earth
You bound me
In a fortress conceived for lovers
You astound me
In ways never written

Stealing me away from life
Staying with me till the daylight
Showing me a life away from life
You led the pathway to the light

Do not weep just keep
Me here for an eternity
I will make you feel complete
Cannot be without you even for a momentary release

Now we are together
Eyes sunk into eyes
Becoming one with each other
The truth is there are no lies

Hiding me from every sadness
Enslaving me in madness
Showing me a life away from life

Rushed past me
Like the wind from Heaven
Brushed past me
Like the flame of temptation
Blushed past me
Like the cherry blossom

I found you
And reached the height of fulfillment
I gained you
And lost all material unfulfillment 
I lost you
And you found me alone in Heaven

Fall into my arms and all pain shall be hindered
I always listen to that from your lips
When will the words from you heart awaken?
Without you the world is not worthy of being lived in

I am the mirror of your love
You are the reflection of my heart
Then why is there so much to be aghast of?
Let us descent into each other and become abstract art

Enlightening my fate line
Heightening the potential of me having a valentine
Showing me a life away from life...

Shameless Writer

Note: An alternative version of Careless Whisper by George Michael.

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand and lead you to the white board
As the fiction dies
Reality in your eyes
Calls to mind a sheet of paper
And all its sad rhymes

I'm never gonna write again
Guilty hands have got no literature
Though it's easy to have your verses misread
I know you know they are true
I should have known better than to cheat a girlfriend
And waste a title that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna write again
The way I wrote for you

Prose can never mend
The Shameless Writings of a poor boyfriend
To the heart and mind
Poetry is kind
There's no beauty in the truth
Ugliness is what you'll find

Tonight the poem was read aloud
I wish that we could lose this renown
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things the words will say
We could have been so good together
This night could've been written in heaven
But now who's gonna read for me?
Please stay

Now that you've gone (Now that you've gone)
Was what I wrote so wrong?
So wrong, that I had to read it alone...

Dear God

I have fallen in love with a beauty
My heart has sworn allegiance to her ecstasy

On my lips there is a single wish
A single wish

Dear God, dear Lord
Make her mine

Dear God, dear Lord
Not for a day nor a night but for all time

Her face has fueled my ever-burning passion
Just once I want to say that beloved you're the one

Her grace has kept me transfixed
Just once I want to admit she's the one I've always cherished

Her stare has left me cupid-stricken
Her smile proved that an angel had just fallen from heaven

Her taste proves that I might not end up with her
But in my soul I know I'm nothing without her

Dear God, dear Lord
Make her mine

Dear God, dear Lord
Not for a day nor a night but for all time...

Mere Allah

Note: Urdu lyrics by Pakistani singer Amir Jamal.

Ek nazneen se pyaar ho gaya hai
Dil uss ka talab-gaar ho gaya hai
Hai labh pe meray bas aik dua
Aik dua

Mere Allah, mere maula
Ussay mera bana de

Mere Allah, mere maula
Ussay mera bana de

I have fallen in love with a beauty
My heart has sworn allegiance to her ecstasy
On my lips there is a single wish
A single wish

Dear God, dear Lord
Make her mine

Not for a day nor one night
But for all time

Uss ki aadao ka mai ho gaya deewana
Dil kahey mai keh du ek bar ussay jaana

Her grace has kept me transfixed
Just once I want to admit she's the one I've always cherished

Nazrai utha ke daikha bechain ho gaya mai
Woh muskuraya aise shokhi mei ko gaya mai

Her stare has left me cupid-stricken
When she smiled it proved an angel had just fallen from heaven...
