aql pahunchi jo riwayat ke kashane tak

aql pahunchi jo riwayat ke kashane tak
ek hi rasm mili kaba se but-khane tak
wadi-e-shab mein ujalon ka guzar ho kaise
dil jalae raho paigham-e-sahar aane tak
ye bhi dekha hai ki saqi se mila jam magar
hont tarse hue pahunche nahin paimane tak
regzaron mein kahin phul khila karte hain
raushni kho gai aa kar mere virane tak
ham-nashin kat hi gaya daur-e-khizan bhi aakhir
zikr phulon ka raha fasl-e-bahaar aane tak
sari uljhan hai sukun ke liye ai shauq thahar
gham ka tufan-e-bala-khez guzar jaane tak
zehn mayus-e-karam shauq-e-nazara sarshaar
hosh mein kaise rahun un ka payam aane tak
zakhm yaadon ke mahakte hain ki aai hai bahaar
hai ye daulat gham-e-dauran ki khizan aane tak
be-niyazi hai taghaful hai ki be-zari hai
baat itni to samajh lete hain diwane tak
zindagi gham se ulajhti hi rahegi hamdam
waqt ki zulf girah-gir sulajh jaane tak
manzil-e-rah talab thi to kahin aur magar
ruk gae khud hi qadam pahunche jo mai-khane tak

bimari ki KHabar

jab khat mein tum likh deti ho kuchh haal apni bimari ka
main baith ke tanhai mein jaane kya kya socha karta hun
kuchh andhe kodhi diwane aankhon mein samane lagte hain
kuchh qaht-zada bhuke pyase jaan khamoshi se de de kar
duniya mein muflis rahne ki taziren pane lagte hain
katte hain jin ke sham-o-sahar ek qabil-e-nafrat khwari se
jo marte hain aasani se aur jite hain dushwari se
khun chus liya hai ghairon ne bimar bhi hain nadan bhi hain
jine ki tamanna dil mein hai aur jine se bezar bhi hain
is dard ki mari duniya mein aise insan kyun baste hain
jo sari umar zarurat ki chizon ke liye bhi taraste hain
go aise log bhi hain jin ko aasaish hi aasaish hai
wo sab hai muhayya un ke liye jis chiz ki un ko khwahish hai
jin ke liye sona mitti hai jin ke liye moti saste hain
lekin majbur insanon ko kyun haq nahin hasil jine ka
tufan hi ke qabze mein kyun patwar hai un ke safine ka
kab tak be-bas insan yunhi taqdir ka rona roega
kab tak be kuchh pae hue apna hi sab kuchh khoega
kab tak andhi bhedon ki tarah ye apni rah na paega
kab tak maut ke aage se pichhe hi hatta jaega
phir khud hi dil bol uthta hai ab waqt badalne wala hai
zarre suraj ban jaenge wo daur bhi aane wala hai
ummid ki ek nannhi si kiran mayusi par chha jati hai
aur us ki zau mein ek nai duniya bazu phailati hai
sui si ragon mein chubhti hai aankhon mein aansu aate hain
dil be-qabu ho jata hai jine ki hawas badh jati hai
jaan waqf-e-tapish ho jati hai aur azm-e-baghawat karti hai
us waqt ek sail iradon ki sinon se ho ke guzarti hai
duniya ko khuld banane ka jo dhyan sa dil mein aata hai
aisi khabron ke sunne se wo aur qawi ho jata hai
jab khat mein tum likh deti ho kuchh haal apni bimari ka
main baith ke tanhai mein jaane kya kya socha karta hun
hum jang karenge fitrat se fitrat par qabu paenge
aur fitrat par qabu pa kar ek rose amar ban jaenge

Dar Dar ke jise main sun raha hun

dar dar ke jise main sun raha hun
khoi hui apni hi sada hun
har lamha-e-hijr ek sadi tha
puchho na ki kab se ji raha hun
jab aankh mein aa gae hain aansu
khud bazm-e-tarab se uth gaya hun
chhatti nahin khu-e-haq-shanasi
suqraat hun zahr pi raha hun
rahbar ki nahin mujhe zarurat
har rah ka mod jaanta hun
manzil na mili to gham nahin hai
apne ko to kho ke pa gaya hun
apni hi hawas thi sar-kashida
daman se ulajh ke gir pada hun
uryani-e-fikr khul na jae
khwabon ke libas si raha hun
har manzil-e-marg-afrin mein
sar-gashta-e-zindagi raha hun
dhabbe hain bahut se tirgi ke
kin raushniyon mein ghir gaya hun

dekh kar jada-e-hasti pe subuk-gam mujhe

dekh kar jada-e-hasti pe subuk-gam mujhe
dur se takti rahi gardish-e-ayyam mujhe
dal kar ek nazar pyar ki meri jaanib
dost ne kar hi liya banda-e-be-dam mujhe
kal sunenge wahi muzhda meri aazadi ka
aaj jo dekh ke hanste hain tah-e-dam mujhe
dekh leta hun andhere mein ujale ki kiran
zulmat-e-shab ne diya subh ka paigham mujhe
na to jine hi mein lazzat hai na marne ki umang
un nigahon ne diya kaun sa paigham mujhe
main samajhta hun mujhe daulat-e-kaunain mili
kaun kahta hai ki wo kar gae badnam mujhe
garche aaghaz-e-mohabbat ne diye hain dhoke
liye jati hai kahin kawish-e-anjam mujhe
tera hi ho ke jo rah jaun to phir kya hoga
ai junun aur hain duniya mein bahut kaam mujhe
