Veerana

24 Sep

Mann ke sehra mein dahekti hui ek os ki boond
Kaaghazi phoolo ko khaati hui deemak ki tarah

Jaane kyon phir se ehsaaso ke phool khile
Jaane kyon aag lagi phir mere veerane mein

sehra: jungle
Os : dew

Roz

kis ki laanat hai yeh, kaisi bala hai jaana
roz jee lete hain ek umr guzarne k liye

maazi : the past

teri khushboo ki fiza kyon hi aati hai idhar?
apne honto se meri ghazal ko chooaa kyon kar?

jab mere khwaab ki taabeer kabhi ho na sake
phir haqeeqat ki is zanjeer se aazaadi de

mujh ko furqat ke kisi lamhe mein tu yaad na kar
mere maazi se mere haal ko barbaad na kar

———
haqeeqat : reality
maazi : past
haal : present

har anjaan ki aankhon mein dhoondta tumko,
har ek nigaah ki fitrat bhi tere jaisi hai,

daga kare koi,
wafa kare koi.

Kuch na baqi raha…

muskuraane se udaasi tamaam na hogi
kutch chhalak jaaenge aansu kisi bahaane se

yeh judaai, yeh wahshat, yeh gham ki raatein
bhool jaenge kya khaak tere aane se

mutmaeeen hu tera ghum hai zindagi se bada
shayd pehle hi mar jaaein maut aane se

aabru jaatii nahi aur na eemaan baaqi
phir bhatak jaunga main raasta dikhaane se

roz likhta hu main ash’aar tere hi khaatir
warna dabti hain kahan siskiyaan dabaane se

do jahaan tu hi tha, nikla tha raabta tujh se
ab kya bachta hai mera waasta zamane se

Sochta huN

9 Jul

sochta hu ki teri yaad mein
kyon jaaga kiya kare koi

phir bhi jaagi hai zindaghi maine

forgive and forget !

9 Jul

Jaise unki na thi khataa koi,
Bas yahi maan kar bhula na sake.

Chaahatein itni naasamajh kyon hain?
