chandni-raat mein andhera tha

By

chandni-raat mein andhera tha
is tarah bebasi ne ghera tha
mere ghar mein basi thi tariki
ghar se bahar magar sawera tha
wo kisi aur ka hua hai aaj
wo jo kal tak to sirf mera tha
ud gae aas ke sabhi panchhi
jin ka dil mein mere basera tha
bas wahin 'josh' ka mazar hai aaj
kal jahan bewafa ka dera tha

aankhon pe shab raqam bhi nahin kar sakunga main

By

aankhon pe shab raqam bhi nahin kar sakunga main
ai khwab tera gham bhi nahin kar sakunga main
ek mustaqil safar hai teri aarzu mujhe
aur khud ko taza-dam bhi nahin kar sakunga main
us ko khuda banane ki zid par ada hai tu
ai dil jise sanam bhi nahin kar sakunga main
sabza bhi chahti hain tasawwur ki khak par
wo aankhen jin ko nam bhi nahin kar sakunga main
ek jaan hai jo nazr guzari na jaegi
ek sar hai jis ko kham bhi nahin kar sakunga main
teri kami mein roz izafa karegi umr
aur is kami ko kam bhi nahin kar sakunga main

intizar

jab mile the tum se pahli martaba
ye laga jaise ki sab kuchh pa liya
mil gai thi is jahan ki har khushi
badli badli ho gai thi zindagi
ek din phir hae aisa bhi hua
ho gae ek dusre se hum juda
milne ki bas aas baqi rah gai
ek tadapti pyas baqi rah gai
aaj bhi is dil ko mere hai yaqin
kya pata kis mod takrae kahin
is liye ummid rakh kar barqarar
karta hun har-pal tumhaara intizar
