    mai-kada thā chāñdnī thī maiñ na thā

    ik mujassam be-ḳhudī thī maiñ na thā

    ishq jab dam toḌtā thā tum na the

    maut jab sar dhun rahī thī maiñ na thā

    tuur par chheḌā thā jis ne aap ko

    vo mirī dīvāngī thī maiñ na thā

    vo hasīñ baiThā thā jab mere qarīb

    lazzat-e-ham-sā.egī thī maiñ na thā

    mai-kade ke moḌ par ruktī huī

    muddatoñ tishnagī thī maiñ na thā

    thī haqīqat kuchh mirī to is qadar

    us hasīñ dil-lagī thī maiñ na thā

    maiñ aur us ġhuncha-dahan aarzū

    aarzū sādgī thī maiñ na thā

    jis ne mah-pāroñ ke dil pighlā diye

    vo to merī shā.erī thī maiñ na thā

    gesuoñ ke saa.e meñ ārām-kash

    sar-barahna zindagī thī maiñ na thā

    dair o ka.aba meñ 'adam' hairat-farosh

    do-jahāñ bad-zanī thī maiñ na thā

    mai-kada tha chandni thi main na tha

    ek mujassam be-KHudi thi main na tha

    ishq jab dam toDta tha tum na the

    maut jab sar dhun rahi thi main na tha

    tur par chheDa tha jis ne aap ko

    wo meri diwangi thi main na tha

    wo hasin baiTha tha jab mere qarib

    lazzat-e-ham-saegi thi main na tha

    mai-kade ke moD par rukti hui

    muddaton ki tishnagi thi main na tha

    thi haqiqat kuchh meri to is qadar

    us hasin ki dil-lagi thi main na tha

    main aur us ghuncha-dahan ki aarzu

    aarzu ki sadgi thi main na tha

    jis ne mah-paron ke dil pighla diye

    wo to meri shaeri thi main na tha

    gesuon ke sae mein aaram-kash

    sar-barahna zindagi thi main na tha

    dair o kaba mein 'adam' hairat-farosh

    do-jahan ki bad-zani thi main na tha
