ab bhi tauhin-e-itaat nahin hogi humse2
ahl-e-mohabbat ki majburi badhti jati hai0
azab ye bhi kisi aur par nahin aaya2
azab-e-wahshat-e-jaan ka sila na mange koi2
basti bhi samundar bhi bayaban bhi mera hai0
bikhar jaenge hum kya jab tamasha khatm hoga0
dayar-e-nur mein tira-shabon ka sathi ho0
dost kya khud ko bhi pursish ki ijazat nahin di0
dukh aur tarah ke hain dua aur tarah ki0
faza mein wahshat-e-sang-o-sinan ke hote hue0
gali-kuchon mein hangama bapa karna padega0
ghairon se dad-e-jaur-o-jafa li gai to kya0
gham-e-jahan ko sharmsar karne wale kya hue0
hami bhi na the munkir-e-ghaalib bhi nahin the2
harim-e-lafz mein kis darja be-adab nikla0
hijr ki dhup mein chhanw jaisi baaten karte hain0
hum ahl-e-jabr ke nam-o-nasab se waqif hain0
hum apne raftagan ko yaad rakhna chahte hain0
inhin mein jite inhin bastiyon mein mar rahte0
jaisa hun waisa kyun hun samjha sakta tha main0
junun ka rang bhi ho shola-e-numu ka bhi ho2
kahan ke nam o nasab ilm kya fazilat kya2
kahin se koi harf-e-motabar shayad na aae0
khalq ne ek manzar nahin dekha bahut dinon se0
khauf ke sail-e-musalsal se nikale mujhe koi0
khazana-e-zar-o-gauhar pe khak dal ke rakh0
khwab dekhne wali aankhen patthar hongi tab sochenge0
khwab ki tarah bikhar jaane ko ji chahta hai2
khwab-e-derina se rukhsat ka sabab puchhte hain0
koi junun koi sauda na sar mein rakkha jae0
koi muzhda na bashaarat na dua chahti hai0
koi to phul khilae dua ke lahje mein2
kuchh bhi nahin kahin nahin khwab ke ikhtiyar mein0
mansab na kulah chahta hun0
manzar se hain na dida-e-bina ke dam se hain0
mera malik jab taufiq arzani karta hai0
mere khuda mujhe itna to moatabar kar de2
mulk-e-sukhan mein dard ki daulat ko kya hua0
rawish mein gardish-e-sayyargan se achchhi hai0
sab chehron par ek hi rang aur sab aankhon mein ek hi khwab0
sajal ki shor zaminon mein aashiyana kare0
samajh rahe hain magar bolne ka yara nahin0

tar-e-shabnam ki tarah surat-e-khas tutti hai0
thakan to agle safar ke liye bahana tha0
umid-o-bim ke mehwar se hat ke dekhte hain0
wafa ki khair manata hun bewafai mein bhi0
wahi pyas hai wahi dasht hai wahi gharana hai2
ye ab khula ki koi bhi manzar mera na tha0
ye basti jaani-pahchani bahut hai0
ye bastiyan hain ki maqtal dua kiye jaen0
ye moajiza bhi kisi ki dua ka lagta hai0
ye naqsh hum jo sar-e-lauh-e-jaan banate hain0
ye qarz-e-kaj-kulahi kab talak ada hoga0
zara si der ko aae the khwab aankhon mein0
