Nafs

25 Dec

Inspired by The Great Gatsby , the novel

 

ibteda hai ya intehaa hai
jo bhi hai sab be-wajah hai

kaun sunta hai dil ab batein
aise jeene mein kya maza hai

sochte hain fizool ki baatein
saans chalne ki yahi saza hai

nafs ka main ghulam kyo na banu
jo bura hai wahi maza hai

– shafiullah anis

ibteda= the beginning
intehaa= the extreme
nafs= desires

Baarish

23 Dec

Jab baarish hoti hai sundar, tab machal jata hriday, tan-man
Kab se aas lagae baitha , baarish mein bheeg bheeg jane ko
par Nikal padi ek aah meri, chanchal man ke honton se
Ke kal do quiz mujhe deni hai, ke kal do quiz mujhe deni hai!!

First year, first term and first rain !

qaatil

23 Dec

kaash ke soch kar yeh baithgae hote hum

khud ko tere wade par sooli na chadhaya hota

bewafa ho tum is baat ka ghum ab to nahin

kaash tere ghum mein aansu na bahaya hota

lag gait thi mujhe jab se tere ishq ki lagan

doston mein  kabhi ek jam uthaya hota

rah gaya hai na mera deen, na dunya meri

kaash tere dar pe ye sar na jhukaya hota

ab to tadpu mein har ek raat tasawwur mein tere

kaash in honton ko ,un honton se na lagaya hota

jhoot ho tum , fareb ho , daghabazi ho

kaash is baat ko kabhi bhi na bhulaya hota

us zubaan ki mithaas aur adaaon ki qasam

fareb mein to tere shaitan bhi aaya hota

yeh ki woh hum the, ka eshaan karo ae magroor

tum ho qaatil ,  tumhe kis ne bataya hota?

Sard Mausam

18 Dec

tum ko ek baar nahi paas se dekha hai kabhi

jab se aaya hai judaai ka woh kaala mausam

 

Sard hoti hai hawaa, sard hi rah jaati hai

kaanch ke tukdo ke aansoo se hui aankhein nam

 

Roz saanso se ladti hai kyon jeene ki uljhan

shayad haatho se hi seene hain mujhe saare zakham

 

saans lena nahi dushwaar , naa hi marna hai

toote waado ki jhankaar se badhiti uljhan

 

teri tasweer jala kar na mila mujh ko sukoon

sard thi pehle fiza, sard hai ab bhi mausam

11 Dec

yaad aati hai teri har subah ki dhoop se
shaam ki laali bhi har baar bulaati tujh ko

Shayd roye ho tum meri yaadon mein aaj
jo humne jagne par takiye ko hai geela paaya
