Khafaa !!

24 May

Khafa khafa sa woh yaar kyu rahne lage hain?
Phir se tanhaai ka ik dard kyon sahne lage hain?
Maana ke khata meri, par aisi bhi kya ruswaai?
Haae ! ab to ashq bhi aankho se bahne lage hain

Imtehaan aur na lo apni adaao ka ab tum
Ki tere aankhon ke alfaaz kutch aur hi kahne lage hain
Subah o sham ki aaamad hai unki meethi baatein
Ruk gaya waqt jo khamosh woh rahne lage hain

Sach ka karte ho tum inkaar aur mujhe jhoota kahna

Har ek zulm tera yaar ab sahne lage hain
Sun ke aawaz meri laut ke tum jo aa jao
Ke kitni fikr-o-gumaa mein yaar hum rahne lage hain

Motee !

20 May

aaj andheri shaam mein maine
dekha ek ‘moti’ sa taara
bhatke hue musaafir ko jaise
mil jae ek sathi pyaara

kya yeh wahi sitara hai
jisko dhoonda tha kohre mein
ya kho jaega badli mein phir se
mere saahil, mera kinaara

kitne toofan aur aaenge
ban kar moti phir aankho mein
hui lateefa meri qismat
kabhi hai ‘moti’, kabhi ‘ishaara’

Yaadein !

14 May

laut gai woh lahro ke sang aai garm hawa,


jaise tumne chua tha, apni garm saanso se.


aaj phir se us nami ke ehsaas ki talaash kyon hai?


Kaash ke teri yaadein bhi tujh si hi bewafa hoti !

Khaamoshi

11 May

Labon ki tabassum tumhare labon par
Na jaane kyon tum ko diye jaa rahe hain

Kabhi apne ghum ko, Kabhi apni hasrat
Kabhi khud ki ghalti giney jaa rahe hain

Na ek khwaab toota , na ek aashiyaana
Na jaane kyon aansu girey jaa rahe hain?

Kabhi hum na samjhe, Kabhi tumne na chaaha (samajhna)
Kyon aankho ki bhaasha bhuley ja rahe hain

Kabhi raah mein phir na milna dubaara
Har ehsaan tum par giney jaa rahe hain

Gunaaho se khud ko na roka kabhi bhi
Shafa’at ki hasrat kiye ja rahe hain?

Jo khamosh tum the , to hum bolte the
Kab se yeh khamoshi sune ja rahe hain
Kab se yeh khamoshi sune ja rahe hain..

Shafa’at– intercession for the forgiveness of sins , the root word of my name Shafi ullah
