main saz DhunDti rahi

By

ehsas-e-awwalin
ek mauhum iztirab sa hai
ek talatum sa pech-o-tab sa hai
umde aate hain khud-ba-khud aansu
dil pe qabu na aankh par qabu
dil mein ek dard mitha mitha sa
rang chehre ka phika phika sa
zulf bikhri hui pareshan-haal
aap hi aap ji hua hai nidhaal
sine mein ek chubhan si hoti hai
aankhon mein kyun jalan si hoti hai
sar mein pinhan tasawwur-e-mauhum
hae ye aarzu-e-na-malum
ek nala sa hai baghair aawaz
ek halchal si hai na soz na saz
kyun ye haalat hai be-qarari ki
sans bhi khul ke aa nahin sakti
ruh mein intishaar sa kya hai
dil ko ye intizar sa kya hai

Dhalke Dhalke aansu Dhalke

dhalke dhalke aansu dhalke
chhalke chhalke saghar chhalke
dil ke taqaze un ke ishaare
bojhal bojhal halke halke
dekho dekho daman uljha
thahro thahro saghar chhalke
un ka taghaful un ki tawajjoh
ek dil us par lakh tahlake
un ki tamanna un ki mohabbat
dekho sambhaal ke dekho sambhal ke
gham ne uthae saikdon tufan
dil ne bisara lakh machal ke
pal mein hansao pal mein rulao
pal mein ujale pal mein dhundalke
hum ne samjha tum ne jaana
dil ne machae lakh tahlake
lakh manaya lakh bhulaya
nain katore bhar bhar kar chhalke
kitne uljhe kitne sidhe
raste un ke rang-mahal ke

aaKHiri Tis aazmane ko

aakhiri tis aazmane ko
ji to chaha tha muskurane ko
yaad itni bhi sakht-jaan to nahin
ek gharaunda raha hai dhane ko
sang-rezo mein dhal gae aansu
log hanste rahe dikhane ko
zakhm-e-naghma bhi lau to deta hai
ek diya rah gaya jalane ko
jalne wale to jal bujhe aakhir
kaun deta khabar zamane ko
kitne majbur ho gae honge
an-kahi baat munh pe lane ko
khul ke hansna to sab ko aata hai
log tarse hain ek bahane ko
reza reza bikhar gaya insan
dil ki viraniyan jatane ko
hasraton ki panah-gahon mein
kya thikane hain sar chhupane ko
hath kanton se kar liye zakhmi
phul baalon mein ek sajaane ko
aas ki baat ho ki sans 'ada'
ye khilaune the tut jaane ko
