meri mahdud basarat ka natija nikla

meri mahdud basarat ka natija nikla
aasman mere tasawwur se bhi halka nikla
roz-e-awwal se hai fitrat ka raqib aadam-zad
dhup nikli to mere jism se saya nikla
sar-e-dariya tha charaghan ki ajal raqs mein thi
bulbula jab koi tuta to sharara nikla
baat jab thi ki sar-e-sham farozan hota
raat jab khatm hui subh ka tara nikla
muddaton baad jo roya hun to ye sochta hun
aaj to sina-e-sahra se bhi dariya nikla
kuchh na tha kuchh bhi na tha jab mere aasar khude
ek dil tha so kai jagah se tuta nikla
log shahpara-e-yak-jai jise samjhe the
apni khalwat se jo nikla to bikharta nikla
mera isar mere zoam mein be-ajr na tha
aur main apni adalat mein bhi jhuta nikla
main to samjha tha bahut sard hai zahid ka mizaj
us ke andar to qayamat ka tamasha nikla
wahi be-ant khala hai wahi be-samt safar
mera ghar mere liye aalam-e-baala nikla
zindagi ret ke zarraat ki ginti thi 'nadim'
kya sitam hai ki adam bhi wahi sahra nikla
