Aarzoo Mehek Poems

I'm a white rose pure and innocent
Pluck me not for your momentary pleasures
Crush me not to be found after years
In the books among the shelves

I realised!
there is no place
as beautiful and secure
as my own heart.

Wandering in the the valley of love
Listening to the rustling of autumn leaves
Absorbing the occult dewdrops of solitude
Singing along with the birds

We think only We've a manipulative mind
Above us all there is super calculative mind
Who can juggle our life with his mastermind
And still gives a chance to repent and be kind

I smile till it starts to look fake
I laugh till my heart aches

I crave for my unfulfilled dreams

I have kept my secrets
Locked in the chamber
Of my divine heart
And has handed over

We are the prisoners of our own desires
And we are fond of our own built cages
The day we break free of our inner-selves
Is the day we are a step closer to God

I picked a few random moments
And froze them in my heart
A few affectionate moments
Empty dull moments

I'm not an ordinary woman
I have my madness
I live with my own perceptions
I'm imperfectly perfect

There is a place I go each day
A place where peace resides
I go there to re asses myself
Time ceases when I enter my silent domain

To survive a storm
Trust your instincts
Learn to hang on to faith
At that point

Only my heart knows
The trauma of
A ruptured faith

Those who cheat
Gets cheated
By the ones
They left us in reel

My eyes reveal
The scanned personalities
Of the people I came across
All the hidden agendas and

I know I am in pain
And I know you know it
You are waiting for me
To come to you in vain

Those dried autumn leaves
Mirror the state of my heart
All the hurts and torment sheds
As the hour of mending comes

Though I am broken
My heart never ceased
To look beyond
The brokenness.

To deal with your regret
Shut the door to your psyche
Lower the volume of this world
Stop tuning to the lament of your heart

The way you treated me
Reflects your character
Your gigantic self-image
Will be tried and tested

The source of my fulfilment.
My strong bond with Allah.
The desire for worldly love.
It's nothing but a distraction.

Aarzoo Mehek Biography

I developed a penchant interest in literature when I was seventeen. English, Hindi and Urdu are the languages I write in. My work has appeared in Narrow Road, Poetry Hunter and in scores of English, Hindi and Urdu journals and newspapers along with a few anthologies. My poems have also been broadcast by the BBC Radio. I'm known to be an empathetic person. Being so sensitive, I feel the joys and pain of others as if they are my own. My writings are the outcome of every suppressed emotion that I collide in my everyday life. I derive my strength to continue writing from the faith and love for god. I believe that He is the one who continues to inspire me with the ability to express with a fervent voice. Over the years, I've been associated with various poetry forums and has read in many occasions. I'm working on my bilingual debut book of poetry.)

The Best Poem Of Aarzoo Mehek

A Rose

I'm a white rose pure and innocent
Pluck me not for your momentary pleasures
Crush me not to be found after years
In the books among the shelves
Or in the jewel box of your treasure
Free me please from your whims n desires.
To the rhythmic breeze let me sway
In the warmth of love let me bask
Let me live these fleeting moments
Feeling the ecstasy of freedom

Aarzoo Mehek is a gifted poet, who has an exquisite Qalaam, and writes beautiful ghazals, with deep insight into the human life and emotions. Her ghazals exude such philosophical observations, that captivate the heart of the reader. And of course, ghazals are to be rendered in music, which is true to hers too. Her English poems are a class apart. Disarmingly beautiful (Oh! this comment is not about the poet; Of course, she IS) are her English write. They are of very high poetic standard. Inimitable style and choice of vocabulary, emotive force and imagery make them dear to one's heart.

Although Aarzoo Mehek is a versatile poetess but her Urdu ghazals are one of the best modern ghazals. I rate her very high and I wish I could write a ghazal in her singular style.

Writing comes naturally to Aarzoo. Her poetry comes from the heart and speaks to the heart. She is a refreshing feminine voice, expressing a woman's deepest feelings on love, life, loss, pain, solitude, God, etc. Her beautiful soul is reflected in her poetry. She is not just one woman, she is the voice of all women. She is truly my soul-sister and reading her poetry is always a pleasure and a learning experience. I wish her the best in life. Keep writing n inspiring my friend.

It is not very often that we come across good poetry. I have read quite a number of poems of Aarzoo Mehek and feel myself lucky for the same. Apart from her diction, her choice and treatment of the subject and above all her intense expression based on her own experience and deep study of human nature make her poetry so true to life. I hope she is well and resumes her creative journey soon.

Life is not that difficult to live, if only one has the zest to conquer all the hurdles and smile in the midst of pain. © Aarzoo Mehe

I'am the sea You are my ocean In you lies My salvation! ©Aarzoo Mehek

Be a mystery, let the world decipher the tidings of your heart, the twinkle of your eyes and that magical smile. © Aarzoo Mehek

If we fall into the pit of blame-game then it's a never ending battle with self...We only have control on ourselves, so the best thing to do is change the perceptions, change the way we look at things and change the way we react to people's unreasonable behavior. It's only WE who can make the difference in life. So just be the change you want to see in your life. Take complete responsibility for your life, including your relationships. © Aarzoo Mehek

To attain the heights of spirituality, kill the animal spirit and search for God in the paradise of heart. ©Aarzoo Mehek

If you want to win life fight with your own created demons.

Expectation kills the joy of living.

Love is a beautiful feeling when reciprocated

What is it we all are seeking? When we give up the search things start unfolding and the irony is we won't be needing it anymore.

Love has a million facets. What role did it play to enhance and enrich your life What meaning has it given to your life?
