    tez mahkār

    phir lahariye-dār tasvīr meñ Dhal ga.ī

    ek cigarette thī jal ga.ī

    dūsrī tere hāthoñ meñ aa ke sulagne lagī

    raakh jhaḌne lagī

    rākh-dāñ is november bhar jā.egā

    aur bhī āḳhir āḳhir aa.e aa.egā

    raakh se uḌtī chiñgāriyoñ se bharā ek din

    kab sūraj āñkhoñ meñ rakkhā huā

    raat ke is kināre pe Tāñkā huā chāñd hairān hai

    dhuñd atrāf meñ to dhueñ se aamez hai

    aañch kyoñ tez hai

    zard patte dahakne lage chaar

    phir zamistāñ sāñsoñ meñ

    ghulne lagī hai koī aarzū

    tez mahkār hai

    tez mahkar

    phir lahariye-dar taswir mein Dhal gai

    ek cigarette thi jal gai

    dusri tere hathon mein aa ke sulagne lagi

    rakh jhaDne lagi

    rakh-dan is nowember ka bhar jaega

    aur bhi aaKHir aaKHir aae aaega

    rakh se uDti chingariyon se bhara ek din

    kab ka suraj ki aankhon mein rakkha hua

    raat ke is kinare pe Tanka hua chand hairan hai

    dhund atraf mein to dhuen hi se aamez hai

    aanch kyon tez hai

    zard patte dahakne lage chaar su

    phir zamistan ki sanson mein

    ghulne lagi hai koi aarzu

    tez mahkar hai
