Ghazal

aanaa usii kaa bazm se jaanaa usii kaa hai

ab qais hai ko.ii na ko.ii aabla-paa hai

aise ka.ii savaal hai.n jin kaa javaab kuchh nahii.n

band kar le khi.Dkiyaa.n yuu.n raat ko baahar na dekh

bas ek vahm sataataa hai baar baar mujhe

har naqsh-e-navaa lauT ke jaane ke liye thaa

is tarah ishq me.n barbaad nahii.n rah sakte

ka.ii raato.n se bas ik shor saa kuchh sar me.n rahtaa hai

kabhii sahraa me.n rahte hai.n kabhii paanii me.n rahte hai.n

kitaab pa.Dhte rahe aur udaas hote rahe

laka.Dhaare tumhaare khel ab achchhe nahii.n lagte

niile piile siyaah surKH safed sab the shaamil isii tamaashe me.n

phir lauT ke is bazm me.n aane ke nahii.n hai.n

roz o shab kii gutthiyaa.n aa.nkho.n ko suljhaane na de

shaam aa.ii sehn-e-jaa.n me.n KHauf kaa bistar lagaa

sho.ala sho.ala thii havaa shiisha-e-shab se puuchho

suuraj dhiire dhiire pighlaa phir taaro.n me.n Dhalne lagaa

tilism hai ki tamaashaa hai kaa.enaat us kii

vo ek shor saa zindaa.n me.n raat bhar kyaa thaa

zer-e-zamii.n dabii hu.ii KHaak ko aasaa.n kaho
