MORE BY Ejaz Gul

    kis ne khīñchī haiñ lakīreñ mire darvāze par

    kaun hai jo ki dabe paañv chalā aayā hai

    mere be-rañg hayūle ta.āqub kartā

    maiñ to mohtāt thā aisā kahīñ aate jaate

    apne saa.e ko bhī pātāl meñ chhoḌ aatā thā

    apnā sāmān uThātā to shab-e-nisf-pahar

    dast-e-hushyār miTātā mire qadmoñ surāġh

    jism har saañs āvāz muqaffal rakhtā

    ḳhaak ḳhaak ḳhushbū tadāruk kartī

    jāntā thā nahīñ mahfūz Thikāna merā

    log maujūd haiñ jo mujh pe nazar rakhte haiñ

    duur nazdīk nihāñ-ḳhānoñ ke andar baiThe

    ek harakat ho to sau aks banā lete haiñ

    un āñkhoñ meñ khaTaktā hai zar-o-māl mirā

    tarz-e-tāmīr mirī mimbar-o-mehrāb mire

    un ke ahdāf haiñ dīvār-o-dar-o-bāb mire

    aur ik gauhar-e-nāyāb ki tah-ḳhāne meñ

    havas-e-dil ko hai asbāb pareshānī

    merī dīvāngī o vahshat o hairānī par

    mujh pe māmūr kuhan-sāl sagān-e-ḳhufta

    kal kisī sā.at-e-kamzor tārīkī meñ

    is kamīñ-gāh meñ sūrāḳh se dar aa.e the

    duur dālān ke kone meñ khaḌe hañste haiñ

    kis ne khinchi hain lakiren mere darwaze par

    kaun hai jo ki dabe panw chala aaya hai

    mere be-rang hayule ka taaqub karta

    main to mohtat tha aisa kahin aate jate

    apne sae ko bhi patal mein chhoD aata tha

    apna saman uThata to shab-e-nisf-pahar

    dast-e-hushyar miTata mere qadmon ka suragh

    jism har sans ki aawaz muqaffal rakhta

    KHak hi KHak ki KHushbu ka tadaruk karti

    jaanta tha nahin mahfuz Thikana mera

    log maujud hain jo mujh pe nazar rakhte hain

    dur nazdik nihan-KHanon ke andar baiThe

    ek harakat ho to sau aks bana lete hain

    un ki aankhon mein khaTakta hai zar-o-mal mera

    tarz-e-tamir meri mimbar-o-mehrab mere

    un ke ahdaf hain diwar-o-dar-o-bab mere

    aur ek gauhar-e-nayab ki tah-KHane mein

    hawas-e-dil ko hai asbab pareshani ka

    meri diwangi o wahshat o hairani par

    mujh pe mamur kuhan-sal sagan-e-KHufta

    kal kisi saat-e-kamzor ki tariki mein

    is kamin-gah mein suraKH se dar aae the

    dur dalan ke kone mein khaDe hanste hain
