ae qayamat tu thahar

28 Oct

aye qayamat tu thahar, aaj un ka aana hai
un se milna hai hua baad qayaamat kitne 

kaisi hogi woh mulaaqaat woh manzar kya hai
din gino k rahta hai eemaan salamat kitne

hosh madhosh ya ehsaas mere honge behis
dekhte hain woh dikhate hain karamat kitne

par..agar..phir jo na aaye woh hamesha ki tarah
unse kahna kahe alfaaz e shikayat kitne

masoom

28 Oct

usne zakhmo ko samet kar
diary ke kutch panno mein rakh rakkha tha

aaj uske bete ne
kaaghaz ki naav bana kar 
saare zakhm paani mein utaar diye

woh khadi bheegti
us naav ko dekhti rahi

barish ne uske aansu dho diye
aur us masoom ki hansi ne uske zakhm

teri gal

28 Oct

mein tooti phooti punjabi se
twade nal gal karna chaunda hoon

mein toote bikhre alfaazo se
twanu mehsoos karna chaunda hoon

jaise, tumhari kahi har baat, 
punjabi mein mishree si ban jaundi hai

apne hontho par is mithi zubaan se
teri mithaas chakhna chaunda hoon

tears

23 Oct

yaad hai tumhe?
jab palko ke beech ki jheel mein
tumne ek toofan qaid kar liya tha

aur apni ek sard aah se
saari qaaenaat ko thahra diya tha

us waqt, us lamhe mein
main,
bas tumhe dekhte rahna chahta tha

woh waqt, meri zindaghi ki intehaa tha
woh lamha mere wajood ka anjaam tha

par tumne na jaane kyon, us jheel ko pighalne diya?

intehaa pasandi

23 Oct

teri intehaa pasandi ki sab sooratein
insaaf hai, likh du agar main khoon se

jab bhi chaha dil ne tujh se tauba karu
tumne bandha hai mujhe junoon se

daal kar baahein gale mein aaj bhi
rok dete ho yeh saansein , jabr hai

jaise, yun tadapna bin tere kaafi na ho
maut dete ho mujhe tum choom ke

translation :
the scenario of ur extremism is such
that i ll do justice only if i write in blood

whenever this heart tried to return back
u enslaved my mind thru a craziness

sacrifice

23 Oct

ishq mera jo memna hi sahi
kar do qurbaan aaj eid sahi

hogi sunnat puri ibrahim ki
sabqat e jaan nhi to dil hi sahi

main maseeha nhi aur tha bhi agar
kar do qurbaan mujhe saleeb sahi

wahshat e ishq mein tawaaf tera
gar na labbaik ism e yaar sahi

memna – lamb
sunnat – path of prophet
sabqat – power
saleeb – cross
wahshat- craziness
tawaaf – encircle , parikrama
labbaik – words recited by a haji during hajj
ism e yaar – name of lover

mast qalandar

23 Oct

bahaar ko kisne de k khanjar
ujaadi basti , ajab sa manzar

nafsi nafsi ki cheekh har soo
gubaar mein bhi, mast qalandar

nazar uthe to veeraniyaan hai
nazar magar hai khudi k andar

likh ke ‘aansu’ hawa mein phenka
bhigoi duniya, nami hai ghar bhar

par, na pooch usse kiya kya tune
jawab talkh lafz ka ek bawandar

shafi khud ki khudi mein soya
agar’cha dil hai bhatakta dar dar

chalega kab tak yeh fitna tera
tu hi hai khanjar, tu hi bawandar

nafsi- myself
har soo – everywhere
khudi – ego
talkh – bitter
fitna – chaos
