usko hai ishq batana bhi nahin chahta hai

us ko hai ishq batana bhi nahin chahta hai
aur ye baat chhupana bhi nahin chahta hai
sochta rahta hai din-bhar ki meri raat mein aae
apne din ko ye jatana bhi nahin chahta hai
shairi ko mera izhaar samajhta hai magar
parda-e-sher uthana bhi nahin chahta hai
sae ko justuju-e-jism bahut hai phir bhi
pahlu-e-jism mein aana bhi nahin chahta hai
aisa lagta hai ki wo pa bhi chuka hai mujh ko
jo ba-zahir mujhe pana bhi nahin chahta hai
farhat-ehsas ko hai sari haqiqat malum
mahfil-e-wahm se jaana bhi nahin chahta hai
