aah jo dil se nikali jaegi

aah jo dil se nikali jaegi
kya samajhte ho ki khali jaegi
is nazakat par ye shamshir-e-jafa
aap se kyunkar sambhaali jaegi
kya gham-e-duniya ka dar mujh rind ko
aur ek botal chadha li jaegi
shaikh ki dawat mein mai ka kaam kya
ehtiyatan kuchh manga li jaegi
yaad-e-abru mein hai 'akbar' mahw yun
kab teri ye kaj-khayali jaegi

aaj aaraish-e-gesu-e-dota hoti hai

aaj aaraish-e-gesu-e-dota hoti hai
phir meri jaan giraftar-e-bala hoti hai
shauq-e-pa-bosi-e-jaanan mujhe baqi hai hanuz
ghas jo ugti hai turbat pe hina hoti hai
phir kisi kaam ka baqi nahin rahta insan
sach to ye hai ki mohabbat bhi bala hoti hai
jo zamin kucha-e-qatil mein nikalti hai nai
waqf wo bahr-e-mazar-e-shohada hoti hai
jis ne dekhi ho wo chitwan koi us se puchhe
jaan kyun-kar hadaf-e-tir-e-qaza hoti hai
naza ka waqt bura waqt hai khaliq ki panah
hai wo saat ki qayamat se siwa hoti hai
ruh to ek taraf hoti hai rukhsat tan se
aarzu ek taraf dil se juda hoti hai
khud samajhta hun ki rone se bhala kya hasil
par karun kya yunhi taskin zara hoti hai
raundte phirte hain wo majma-e-aghyar ke sath
khub tauqir-e-mazar-e-shohada hoti hai
murgh-e-bismil ki tarah lot gaya dil mera
nigah-e-naz ki tasir bhi kya hoti hai
nala kar lene den lillah na chheden ahbab
zabt karta hun to taklif siwa hoti hai
jism to khak mein mil jate hue dekhte hain
ruh kya jaane kidhar jati hai kya hoti hai
hun fareb-e-sitam-e-yar ka qail 'akbar'
marte marte na khula ye ki jafa hoti hai

aankhen mujhe talwon se wo malne nahin dete

aankhen mujhe talwon se wo malne nahin dete
arman mere dil ke nikalne nahin dete
khatir se teri yaad ko talne nahin dete
sach hai ki hamin dil ko sambhalne nahin dete
kis naz se kahte hain wo jhunjhla ke shab-e-wasl
tum to hamein karwat bhi badalne nahin dete
parwanon ne fanus ko dekha to ye bole
kyun hum ko jalate ho ki jalne nahin dete
hairan hun kis tarah karun arz-e-tamanna
dushman ko to pahlu se wo talne nahin dete
dil wo hai ki fariyaad se labrez hai har waqt
hum wo hain ki kuchh munh se nikalne nahin dete
garmi-e-mohabbat mein wo hain aah se manea
pankha nafas-e-sard ka jhalne nahin dete
