ab ke sahra mein ajab barish ki arzani hui0
ab zaban khanjar-e-qatil ki sana karti hai0
ajib nashsha hai hoshyar rahna chahta hun0
badal gai hai faza nile aasmanon ki0
badan ke donon kinaron se jal raha hun main0
badan mein jaise lahu taziyana ho gaya hai2
charagh dene lagega dhuan na chhu lena2
dar se uski na irfan juda kar usko0
dar-o-diwar ki zad se nikalna chahta hun main0
darwazon par din bhar ki thakan tahrir hui0
dhanak se phul se barg-e-hina se kuchh nahin hota0
donon apne kaam ke mahir donon bade zahin0
ek tariqa ye bhi hai jab jina ek na-chaari ho0
faqiri mein ye thodi si tan-asani bhi karte hain2
halqa-e-be-talaban ranj-e-giran-bari kya0
haq fath-yab mere khuda kyun nahin hua0
humse shayad hi kabhi uski shanasai ho0
humse wo jaan-e-sukhan rabt-e-nawa chahti hai0
hushyar hain to hum ko bahak jaana chahiye0
is takalluf se na poshak-e-badan-gir mein aa0
ishq miyan is aag mein mera zahir hi chamka dena0
jaan se guzre bhi to dariya se guzarenge tumhein0
jab ye aalam ho to likhiye lab-o-rukhsar pe khak2
kab se raazi tha badan be-sar-o-samani par0
kahin to lutna hai phir naqd-e-jaan bachana kya0
kash main bhi kabhi yaron ka kaha man sakun0
kharaba ek din ban jae ghar aisa nahin hoga0
khatm ho jang kharabe pe hukumat ki jae0
khel sab aankhon ka hai sara hunar aankhon ka hai0
khushbu ki tarah sath laga le gai hum ko0
khwab mein bhi meri zanjir-e-safar ka jagna0
koi bijli in kharabon mein ghata raushan kare1
koi wahshi chiz si zanjir-e-pa jaise hawa0
kuchh harf o sukhan pahle to akhbar mein aaya0
lapat si dagh kuhan ki taraf se aati hai0
mere hone mein kisi taur se shamil ho jao3
mujhe bacha bhi liya chhod kar chala bhi gaya0
murawwaton pe wafa ka guman bhi rakhta tha0
nachiz bhi khuban se mulaqat mein gum hai0
pukarta hai magar dhyan mein nahin aata0
qadam uthe to gali se gali nikalti rahi0
raat ek shahr ne taza kiye manzar apne0
ruh ke mojazon ka zamana nahin jism hi kuchh karamat karte rahen0
sar hone do ye kar-e-jahan aish karenge0
sarab-e-dasht tujhe aazmane wala kaun0
sar-e-taslim hai kham izn-e-uqubat ke baghair2
sarhaden achchhi ki sarhad pe na rukna achchha0
shahab-chehra koi gum-shuda sitara koi0
sham-e-tanha ki tarah subh ke tare jaise0
shoala-e-ishq bujhana bhi nahin chahta hai1
sukhan mein rang tumhaare khayal hi ke to hain0
sukut-e-khauf yahan ku-ba-ku pukarta hai0
tamam jalna jalana fasana hota hua0
tod di usne wo zanjir hi dildari ki0
tu unhen yaad aaegi ai juebar agle baras0
tum hamein ek din dasht mein chhod kar chal diye the tumhein kya khabar ya akhi0
ulat gaya hai har ek silsila nishane par0
unhin ki shah se unhen mat karta rahta hun0
us se bichhad ke bab-e-hunar band kar diya0
uski timsal ko pane mein zamane lag jaen0
usne be-kar ye bahrup banaya hua hai0
utho ye manzar-e-shab-tab dekhne ke liye2
wahshat ke sath dasht meri jaan chahiye3
wo jo ek shart thi wahshat ki utha di gai kya2
wo un dinon to hamara tha lekin ab kya hai0
ye shahr-e-zat bahut hai agar banaya jae0
ye to sahra hai yahan thandi hawa kab aaegi0
zamin par shor-e-mahshar roz o shab hota hi rahta hai2
zara sa waqt kahin be-sabab guzarte hain0
zawal-e-shab mein kisi ki sada nikal aae2
zehn ho tang to phir shokhi-e-afkar na rakh0
zer-e-mehrab na baala-e-makan bolti hai0
