aag ke pas

pir-e-wamanda koi
coat pe mehnat ki siyahi ke nishan

naujawan bete ki gardan ki chamak dekhta hun
ek raqabat ki siyah lahr bahut tez

mere sina-e-sozan se guzar jati hai
jis tarah taq pe rakkhe hue gul-dan ki

mas-o-sim ke kason ki chamak
aur gulu uljhe hue taron se bhar jata hai

koele aag mein jalte hue
kin yaadon ki kis raat mein

jal jate hain
kya inhi kanon ki yaadon mein jahan

salha-sal ye aasuda rahe
unhi be-ab darakhton ke wo jangal

jinhen pirana-sari bar hui jati thi
koele lakhon baras daur ke khwabon mein ulajh jate hain

aaj shab bhi wo badi der se
ghar lauta hai

us ke alfaz ko
in rangon se aawazon se kya rabt

jo is gham-zada ghar ke khas-o-khashak mein hain
us ko is mez par bikhri hui

khushbuon ke jangal se gharaz
aaj bhi apne aqide pe ba-dastur

ba-zid qaem hai
wo darakhton ke tanomand tane

apne aainda ke khwabon mein asir
gard-baad aa hi gae

un ki rihai ka wasila ban kar
khud se mahjuri-e-nagah ka hila ban kar

aae aur chal bhi diye
tul-e-alamnak ki dahliz pe

rukhsat kah kar
aur wo lakhon baras soch mein

aainda ke mauhum mein khwabida rahe
mere bete tujhe kuchh yaad bhi hai

main ne bhi shor machaya tha kabhi
khak ke bigde hue chehre ke khilaf

lahn be-rang hua sun ke
meri jaan bhi pukar uthi thi

main kabhi ek ana aur kabhi do ka sahaara leta
apni sathi se main kah uthta ki jago ai jaan

harana tira-bayaban mein
bhatakte hue patton ka hujum

mera dar mujh ko nigal jaega
mere kanon mein mere karb ki aawaz

palat aati thi
tujhe be-kar khudaon pe yaqin

ab bhi nahin
ab bhi nahin

aaj bhi apne hi ilhad ki kursi mein
pada unghta hun

naujawan bete ke alfaz pe chaunk uthta hun
tu ne bete

ye ajab khwab sunaya hai mujhe
apna ye khwab kisi aur se hargiz na kaho

kabhi aahista se darwaza jo khulta hai to hans deta hun
ye bhi is baat ki sarsar ki

nai chaal naya dhoka hai
phul ya pariyan banane ka koi nuskha

mere pas nahin hai bete
mujhe fardaon ke sahra se bhi

afsun-e-riwayat ki lahak aati hai
aag mein koele bujhne ki tamanna na karo

in se aainda ke mitte hue aasar
ubhar aaenge

in guzarte hue lamhat ki tanhai mein
kaisa ye khwab sunaya hai mujhe tu ne abhi

nahin har ek se
har ek se ye khwab kaho

is se jag uthta hai
soya hua majzub

meri aag ke pas
aise majzub ko ek khwab bahut

khwab bahut khwab bahut
aise har mast ko

ek khwab bahut
