zindagani ka KHala

zindagani ka khala
ye na bhar paya kabhi
lala-o-gul ko kabhi pyar kiya
raat-bhar taron ko bedar kiya
kam na hoti thi magar dil ki kasak
dil ka gham aankhon se barsaya kabhi
ye na bhar paya kabhi
zindagani ka khala
bhar liya us mein kabhi dard-e-chaman
kabhi be-nam maqasid ki lagan
jin se ehsas bhi jata tha bahak
shisha-e-dil ko bhi chhalkaya kabhi
ye na bhar paya kabhi
zindagani ka khala
fan ki dewi ne bhi barsai sharab
waqt ki mauj ne phenke dur-e-nab
jin se aai mere khwabon mein chamak
ji zara un se bhi bahlaya kabhi
ye na bhar paya kabhi
zindagani ka khala

wadi-e-gul

By

did hi did hai ai umr-e-rawan kuchh bhi nahin
ye jahan kitna hasin hai ye jahan kuchh bhi nahin
ye tabassum ye takallum ye tamasha ye nigah
yun to sab kuchh hai yahan aur yahan kuchh bhi nahin
tere abru se siwa wo nigah-e-tishna-e-khun
tir jab nikla kaman se to kaman kuchh bhi nahin
umr ke fasle tai kar na saka jazba-e-shauq
khun-e-dil kuchh bhi nahin qalb-e-tapan kuchh bhi nahin
dhundhiye chal ke kahin umr-e-guzishta ka suragh
kashti-e-dil ke liye sail-e-zaman kuchh bhi nahin
in nazaron mein nazar apni bhi jaanib 'masud'
wadi-e-gul mein ba-juz dil ka ziyan kuchh bhi nahin

tujhe bahaar mili mujhko intizar mila

tujhe bahaar mili mujh ko intizar mila
is intizar mein lekin kise qarar mila
kisi ki aankhon mein taron ki muskurahat hai
kisi ki aankhon ko shabnam ka karobar mila
ye mere jaib-o-gareban pe kuchh nahin mauquf
ki tera daman-e-rangin bhi tar-tar mila
teri wafa ne mohabbat ko eatibar diya
teri nazar se mujhe husn-e-eatibar mila

teri wafa mein mere intizar mein kya tha

teri wafa mein mere intizar mein kya tha
khizan ke dard mein zakhm-e-bahaar mein kya tha
ye sochna tha na ho jaen is qadar majbur
ye dekhna tha tere ikhtiyar mein kya tha
labon ne phul tarashe nazar ne barsae
magar wo kawish-e-mizhgan-e-yar mein kya tha
udhar khayal tha rukhsar-o-chashm-o-lab ka idhar
khabar nahin dil-e-ummid-war mein kya tha
nazar ke kante pe tul kar subuk hue na garan
tawazun-e-nigah-e-nau-bahaar mein kya tha
nigah mein ramz-e-ghazal lab pe maqta-e-tamkin
bayan to kijiye us ikhtisar mein kya tha
labon ko tum ne to 'masud' si liya tha magar
tabassum-e-nigh-e-raaz-dar mein kya tha

tere khone ka kis qadar gham hai

tere khone ka kis qadar gham hai
aaj aalam tamam mubham hai
dekhta hun nazar nahin aata
kaisa nairang chashm-e-pur-nam hai
dard thahra hua sa hai dil mein
sozish-e-gham bhi aaj kam kam hai
kitni viraniyan hain aankhon mein
kitna pairon mein raqs-e-paiham hai
dida-o-dil bujhe se jate hain
kaisi ghamnak sham-e-matam hai
tum ne 'masu' ko bhi dekha hai
wo to afsurdagi mujassam hai

tere KHayal mein dil aaj sogwar sa hai

tere khayal mein dil aaj sogwar sa hai
mujhe guman hai kuchh us ko intizar sa hai
main sada-dil tha ki daman pe un ke ro bhi diya
magar gulon ke dilon mein abhi ghubar sa hai
wo mo'atabar to nahin hai par is ko kya kije
ki us ke wadon pe phir aaj eatibar sa hai
main tujh se ramz-e-mohabbat kahun to kaise kahun
main be-qarar hun aur tujh ko kuchh qarar sa hai
tujhi pe kuchh nahin mauquf ai dil-e-mahrum
jahan bhi dekhiye aalam mein intishaar sa hai
tu hosh-mand kahan ka tha kuchh to kah 'masud'
ye kya hai aaj tujhe dil ye ikhtiyar sa hai
