memories

22 Aug

now those painful memories cease to exist in form of a distasteful scar on the face of love.

woh jo ek til hai tere kaandhe pe diye ke jaisa

usse jalta mera seena hai wafaa ki khaatir

meethi boli sa taraana tha jo  gham-khwaar kabhi

usse kaano mein pighalta hai jalta paara

 

addendum 🙂

reshmi zulfein wafa ki thi jo zanjeer kabhi

un mein uljhi hai meri rooh ghulami ki tarah

gham-khwaar : pain relieving

paara:     mercury

Jumbish !

Before i write those 4 lines let me explain the word ‘sooor’ used. As per Islamic theology, ‘sooor‘ is a musical horn which would be blown by the angels to bring in Qayamat , the complete destruction of universe and beginning of the day of judgement. It will start with sweet musical sound and will gradually become so loud to destroy the very universe.

jumbish = vibrations

Thanks for tha patience and now comes the poetry

Aarzoo ki kise samajh thi, 
Hum to chalte gae wafa ke raaste
Hogi gar jumbish dil ki dharkan mein
‘Sooor’ sa koi anjaam hoga

khwaabo ke tukde

10 Aug

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ek baar socha ke main kahan hu yahan par

kutch lamhe ehsaas ke liye , kahan hoon

shayad main haara hun , ya zindaghi ki karwat hai

ek ajeeb ehsaas hai, ek ajeeb uljhan hai

 

kabhi khamosh us saaye ki tarah main bhi

peeche peeche ho leta hu is jahan ke

kabhi khamosh aasman ki oonchaaiyaan 

paane ko sochta hu main phir se

 

meri aankhon mein khwaab hain

aansuon se dhule hue

phir bhi khwaab dekhne ko 

itna bechain kyon main rahta hu

 

sochta hu jo na paa saka use bhoolta kyon nahi

jo pa saka , use dil ke qareeb paata kyon nahi

kya khwaab toot kar tukde chhod jaate hain?

un tukdo se kyon chahat hai ,sochta hu main yahi

Gumaan !

Bhigoe the jo takiye tumne ro ro kar,

Woh aajizi woh fikar aaj kyon nahi aati?

 

Tamaam umr ka waada tha saath sone ka,

Shab to aati hai magar neend kyon nahi aati?

 

Thahar thahar ke chalti hai zindaghi ki ghadi,

Nabz chalti hai magar saans kyon nahi aati?

 

Gumaa hain tumko ajab sharf aala milne ka,

Karoge ishq tumhe sharm kyon nahi aati?

 

Woh bebasi , woh zamana , woh naam ruswaai,

 Zehan se tere yeh saab baat kyon nahi jaati?

 

Sunaai deti hai meri sada akele mein?

Kya aisi baton pe tum ko hansi nahi aati?

 

main bhool jau teri zaat , teri mohabbat ko,

na jaane kyu mujhe yeh baat samajh nahi aati.

emptiness

7 Aug

khaas batein khaas hoti hain
Jab koi saath hota hai
Zindaghi kabhi ek khoobsurat lamha thi
Kabhi har lamha udaas hota hai 

Safeena

3 Aug

mere ishq ka safeena kyon kar gharq ho gaya
ye marzi -e- khuda thi, ya bimaar naakhuda  tha?

safeena : boat

gharq: wrecked

naakhuda : sailor

mera naseeb

1 Aug

Tum mera naam kyon nahi leti,

Shayd mil jaye kutch sukoon dil ko.

Tham ke ek baar dekh lo mujh ko,

Dil ki beqaraari door ho jaae.

Dar o deewar tumse poochhte honge,

Khoye khoye se  kyun rahte ho.

Aina dekh sihar jaati ho?

Ke asr-e-jafa abhi rukhsaar pe hai.

Main jab bhi sher-e-wafa likhta hu,

Teri tasweer mujhse  kahti hai.

Ke Ishq karna mera junoon tha,

Aur bewafaai mere naseeb mein thi.
