bahaar ban ke KHizan ko na yun dilasa de

bahaar ban ke khizan ko na yun dilasa de
nigahen pher le apni na khud ko dhoka de
masaf-e-zist hai bhar de lahu se jam mera
na muskura ke mujhe saghar-e-tamanna de
khada hua hun sar-e-rah muntazir kab se
ki koi guzre to gham ka ye bojh uthwa de
wo aankh thi ki badan ko jhulas gai qurbat
magar wo shola nahin ruh ko jo garma de
hujum-e-gham wo raha umr bhar dar-e-dil par
khushi isi mein rahi ye hujum-e-rasta de
likha hai kya mere chehre pe tu jo sharmaya
zaban se na bata aaina hi dikhla de
main ladkhada sa gaya hun wafa ke wade par
pakad ke hath mujhe ghar talak to pahuncha de
sukut-e-anjum-o-mah ne chhupa liya hai jise
jhuki nazar na kisi ko wo raaz batla de
har ek dard ka darman hai log kahte hain
magar wo dard 'naimi' jo khud masiha de

dua ko hath mera jab kabhi uTha hoga

dua ko hath mera jab kabhi utha hoga
qaza-o-qadr ka chehra utar gaya hoga
jo apne hathon lute hain bas is pe zinda hain
khuda kuchh un ke liye bhi to sochta hoga
teri gali mein koi sae raat bhar ab bhi
suragh-e-jannat gum-gashta dhundta hoga
jo gham ki aanch mein pighla kiya aur aah na ki
wo aadmi to nahin koi dewta hoga
tumhaare sang-e-taghaful ka kyun karen shikwa
is aaine ka muqaddar hi tutna hoga
hai mere qatl ki shahid wo aastin bhi magar
main kis ka nam lun sau bar sochna hoga
ye meri pyas ke saghar tere labon ki sharab
rawaj-o-rasm-e-mohabbat ka mojaza hoga
phir aarzu ke khandar rang-o-bu mein dub chale
fareb-khurda koi khwab dekhta hoga
sitare bhi teri yaadon ke bujhte jate hain
gham-e-hayat ka suraj nikal raha hoga
sada kise den 'naimi' kise dikhaen zakhm
ab itni raat gae kaun jagta hoga

gard-e-firaq ghaza kash-e-aina na ho

gard-e-firaq ghaza kash-e-aina na ho
chaho jo tum to apne tasarruf mein kya na ho
sajde ke har nishan pe hai khun sa jama hua
yaro ye us ke ghar ka kahin rasta na ho
zakhmon ki mishalen liye guzra hai dil se kaun
yaadon ka koi bhatka hua qafila na ho
kab se khada hun ek do-rahe pe but bana
sab kuchh jo dekhta ho magar bolta na ho
chumo lagao aankhon se sar par rakkho use
ye zindagi waraq kisi injil ka na ho
sau bar ek gali mein mujhe le gaya ye wahm
khidki se koi maslahatan jhankta na ho
sharma gae the donon hi pahli nazar ke baad
shayad tumhein to yaad bhi wo waqia na ho
lao na mere samne aariz ke aaftab
chehre pe koi harf-e-tamanna likha na ho
mazi ke reg-zar pe rakhna sambhal ke panw
bachchon ka is mein koi gharaunda bana na ho
ho kar juda bhi us se 'naimi' main ji to lun
lekin ye dar hai is se kahin wo khafa na ho

ghubar-e-dard se sara badan aTa nikla

ghubar-e-dard se sara badan ata nikla
jise bhi khanda-ba-lab dekha gham-zada nikla
ab ehtiyat bhi aur kya ho be-libas to hun
ek aastin se mana ki azhdaha nikla
mere khulus pe shak ki to koi wajh nahin
mere libas mein khanjar agar chhupa nikla
laga jo pith mein neza to samjhe dushman hai
magar palat ke jo dekha to aashna nikla
mere lahu se hai rangin jabin-e-subh to kya
chalo ki zulmat-e-shab ka to hausla nikla
ye hath rakh mein khwabon ki dalte to ho
magar jo rakh mein shola koi daba nikla
suna tha hadd-e-tabassum hai aansuon se qarib
badhe jo aage to barson ka fasla nikla
wo ek harf-e-tamanna jo kahte darte the
zaban pe aaya to un ka hi muddaa nikla
kulah kaj kiye din bhar jo shakhs phirta tha
gali mein sham ko dekha to wo gada nikla
tulu subh 'naimi' jahan se honi thi
usi ufuq se andheron ka silsila nikla

har insan apne hone ki saza hai

har insan apne hone ki saza hai
bhare bazar mein tanha khada hai
nae darbanon ke pahre bithao
hujum-e-dard badhta ja raha hai
rahe hum hi jo har patthar ki zad mein
hamari sar-bulandi ki khata hai
mahakte gesuon ki raat guzri
sawa neze pe ab suraj khada hai
mere khwabon ki chikni sidhiyon par
na jaane kis ka but tuta pada hai
wo shole hon lahu ho hadse hon
meri hi zindagi par tabsira hai
teri zulfen to hain badnam yunhi
mujhe din ke ujalon ne dasa hai
chalo chupke se kuchh but aur rakh aaen
dar-e-kaba abhi shayad khula hai
utar kar to fasil-e-shab se dekho
sahar ne khud-kushi kar li suna hai
abhi taq-e-tasawwur par 'naimi'
charagh-e-lazzat-e-shab jal raha hai

honkte dasht mein ek gham ka samundar dekho

honkte dasht mein ek gham ka samundar dekho
tum kisi roz agar dil mein utar kar dekho
niklo sadkon pe to hansti hui lashon se milo
band aankhen jo karo qatl ka manzar dekho
aanch qurbat ki na pighla de kahin tar-e-nazar
shola-e-husn ko kuchh dur se bach kar dekho
ye to kahte ho ki khud main ne katai gardan
koi hathon mein hawa ke bhi to khanjar dekho
aastinen to kahin chupke se dho lo yaro
ho kisi ko na shubah qatl ka tum par dekho
dar o diwar se uthte hain ye shole kaise
dosto chal ke zara ghar ke to andar dekho
haddiyan gal chukin ab to na ukhedo un ko
dhund len phir ye naya koi na paikar dekho
main bhi is safha-e-hasti pe ubhar sakta hun
rang to tum meri taswir mein bhar kar dekho
ab to khilti hui kaliyon mein na dhundo mujh ko
rakh hote hue ek shole ka manzar dekho
phenk do tuti ummidon ke ye tukde bahar
dil mein rah jae kirich koi na gad kar dekho
liye aaina wafaon ka kahan phirte ho
hon na hathon mein kahin andhon ke patthar dekho
ek muddat se hai logon ko 'naimi' ki talash
qasr-e-tanhai ki diwaren gira kar dekho
