Ghazal

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

bismil ke ta.Dapne kii adaa.o.n me.n nasha thaa

chaaro.n taraf se maut ne gheraa hai ziist ko

ghuum rahaa thaa ek shaKHs raat ke KHaarzaar me.n

hone ko yuu.n to shahr me.n apnaa makaan thaa

jiitaa hai sirf tere liye kaun mar ke dekh

jo chiiz thii kamre me.n vo be-rabt pa.Dii thii

na ko.ii rok sakaa KHvaab ke safiiro.n ko

phir kisii KHvaab ke parde se pukaaraa jaa.uu.n

so.e hu.e pala.ng ke saa.e jagaa gayaa

Nazm

lafz kii chhaa.nv me.n

sitaara so gayaa hai

vaalid ke intiqaal par

aamiin

ainak ke shiishe par

ek nazm

gol kamre ko sajaataa huu.n

gosht kii sa.Dko.n par

nazm

patthar par tasviir banaa kar

saa.e kii pislii se niklaa hai jism tiraa

saatvii.n pislii me.n piilii chaandnii

tilismii Gaar kaa darvaaza

ufuq kii hathelii se suuraj na ubhre

vaqt kii piiTh par
