sahaara

os ki bundon mein namkini nahin
phul gar chahe ki apni raat ke anjam ko

ek hi lamhe mein yaksar jaan le
us ko lazim hai hawa ke sard jhonke se kahe

jao us ke aansuon ko chum lo
aansuon ko chum kar mahsus ye hone laga

ek aansu ek bund
ek pal mein ek bahr-e-nilgun

ban ke chha jata hai tanha naw par
kya hua gar os ki bundon mein namkini nahin

os ki bundon mein namkini agar hoti to kya
phul is mein tairte hi tairte

apni manzil tak pahunch sakta na tha ek naw ban sakta na tha
phul kya hai tu ki main

phul main hun tu nahin
tu to bahr-e-nilgun mein ek tanha naw hai

bahti jati hai zara rukti nahin
tujh ko ye malum kab hai os ki bundon mein namkini nahin

tu faqat baaton ke bal par apni raaton ki rasili chhanw mein
ye samajhti hai ki har lamha achanak phail kar

shash-jihat par dil dhadakte hi mein yun chhane laga
jaise ek thahraw furqat ki andheri raat mein

dard ke ham-dosh lazzat ko bhi uksata rahe
le piyala tham le

is mein baqi hai abhi zahr-e-gham
jis ko pi kar main bhi apni zindagi se bhagta phirta raha

guftugu se faeda kuchh bhi nahin lekin mujhe
har ishaara dam hai alfaz ka

jis mein tair phad-phadate chikhte
chikhte hi chikhte khamosh ho jate hue

jaan lete hain ki ab wo raat hi darman banegi dard ke ambar ka
jis ke bikhre daman-e-sad-chaak mein

phul ki bhigi hui patti pe bunden os ki
sath lati hain gudaz-e-ruh ki halki malahat ko jise

chakh ke kahti hai zaban kyun ab kaho
os ki bundon mein namkini nahin

dekh dur
ek tanha naw bahr-e-nilgun pe rafta rafta badhte badhte aa rahi hai pas dekh

dur ki chizen bhi yun
baaton baaton mein qarib aa jaengi kya thi khabar

dekh to
rishta-e-ahd-e-takhayyul band tha

khulne laga
rafta rafta ek nai surat nazar aane lagi

ek nai surat magar kuchh naqsh to manus hain
aur har lamhe se har aansu se qasr-e-nilgun istada hai

dur us ki chhat mein do fanus hain
