be-wajh nahin un ka be-KHud ko bulana hai

be-wajh nahin un ka be-khud ko bulana hai
aaina-e-hairat se mahfil ko sajaana hai
yar gham-e-hasti ka hai tazkira la-hasil
majbur ka jina hi ek bar uthana hai
mujh se jo sar-e-mahfil tum aankh churaate ho
kya raaz-e-mohabbat ko afsana banana hai
haalat ke taghayyur par ho matam-e-mazi kyun
ek wo bhi zamana tha ek ye bhi zamana hai
hai gosha-e-tanhai manzur mujhe 'bekhud'
is bazm mein jaana to ji aur jalana hai
