Ghazal 37

Nazm 40

Sher 38

āvāz dīvār bhī chup-chāp khaḌī thī

khiḌkī se jo dekhā to galī uuñgh rahī thī

aawaz ki diwar bhi chup-chap khaDi thi

khiDki se jo dekha to gali ungh rahi thi

jism miTTī na le jaa.e bahā kar saath meñ

dil gahrā.ī meñ girtā ḳhvāhishoñ ābshār

jism ki miTTi na le jae baha kar sath mein

dil ki gahrai mein girta KHwahishon ka aabshaar

phir bāloñ meñ raat huī

phir hāthoñ meñ chāñd khilā

phir baalon mein raat hui

phir hathon mein chand khila

Audios 27

aashiq the shahr me.n jo puraane sharaab ke

ab TuuTne hii vaalaa hai tanhaa.ii kaa hisaar

badan par na.ii fasl aane lagii
