dusra bistar

By

sajae khwab aankhon mein
sahar se sham tak
anjaan rahon mein
ubharte dubte sayon ko takti hai
koi shahzada aa jae
bana kar khwab ka hissa
use le kar chala jae
khula rahta hai har lamha
daricha dard ka us ke
magar aata nahin koi
siyahi sham dhalte hi
nigal jati hai khwabon ko
ujalon chhod jata hai
use phir dusra bistar sajaane ko

bagule shor karte hain

bagule
shor karte hain
meri khwahish ki duniya mein
jahan viraniyan hain aur
bahut se banjh pedon ki qataren hain
ki jin ki be-karani mein
bahut din ho gae
mausam nahin aae bahaaron ke
nahin to bulbulen chahkin
nahin to phul hi mahke
madhur aawaz koyal ki nahin aai
bahut din ho gae
ki har-su
gahri virani ka kaisa daur-daura hai
meri khwahish ki duniya mein
magar phir bhi
bagule shor karte hain

hamesha main ne dekha hai
ki suraj sham hote hi
sama jata hai apni maut ki aaghosh mein
lekin
ajab hai maut ki wadi
jahan se laut kar koi nahin aata
agar hai zindagi suraj
to ek din dhal hi jaegi
jatan karte rahoge lakh
wapas phir na aaegi
magar suraj to aaega

mera ghar ajnabi lagta hai kyun aakhir
wo rahen bhi
jo ghar tak le ke jati hain
kabhi thin aashna mujh se
magar na-ashna ab hain
bahut mayus hun sab se
mujhe pahchanne wala
nahin koi
koi rishta bhi ab apna nahin lagta
yahan ki reshmi subhen
ujale apne aangan ke
udasi se bhari shamen
chamakte raat ke tare
sabhi ye mujh se kahte hain
ki ab ke jab safar karna
jahan jaana
wahin rahna
abas hai us jagah aana
abas hai laut kar aana

tum bhi

muddaton baad aai ho tum
aur tumhein itni fursat kahan
an-kahe harf bhi sun sako
aarzu ki wo tahrir bhi padh sako
jo abhi tak likhi hi nahin ja saki
itni mohlat kahan
mere baghon mein jo khil na pae abhi
un shagufon ki baaten karo
dard hi bant lo
mere kin mahtabon se tum mil sakin
kitni aankhon ke khwabon se tum mil sakin
han tumhaari nigah-e-sataish ne
ghar ki sab aaraishen dekh lin
tan ki aasaishen dekh lin
mere dil mein jo paikan taraazu hue
tum ko bhi
lala-o-gul ke be-sakhta istiare lage

jaan
tum ko khabar tak nahin
log aksar bura mante hain
ki meri kahani kisi mod par bhi
andheri gali se guzarti nahin
ki tum ne shuaon se har rang le kar
mere har nishan-e-qadam ko dhanak saunp di
na gum-gashta khwabon ki parchhaiyan hain
na be-as lamhon ki sargoshiyan hain
ki nazuk hari bel ko
ek tawana shajar an-ginat apne hathon mein
thame hue hai
koi na-rasai ka aaseb us rahguzar mein nahin
ye kaisa safar hai ki rudad jis ki
ghubar-e-safar mein nahin
