Aadhe se Zyada, Poore se Kam

Aaj chaand ko dekh kar, khayal hamare marasim ka aya
Khataa hogayi shayad hum hi se, ye anumaan lagaya

Bhool gaye the, ki aadhe se zyada aur poore se kam hone mein,
Voh aata bhi hai, sirf jaata nahi
Aitbaar kar intezaar karna chahie tha, aitraaz nahi

Ishq beshaq musalsal-e-mayassar maujood tha
Magar khud ke fitoor se bichadna bhi toh ek dastoor tha

Bass aitbaari ne haath kuch iss qadar chordha
Ke jawaab humne aap se hi maanga,
Kis khataa ka nateeza hai ye?
Konsi wafa ka saleeka hai ye?
Ke Qurbat ne jaa narazgi ka haath thaama
Aur ishq mein haar, iss sifar ko paaya

Ab batao, jisse aadat ho chaand ki roshini ki,
Usse aaftab ki ehmiyat ka andaza kaise ho
Apne hi wajood se rooth kar baithe hain hum,
Koi moutjza ho, toh akhir kaise ho?

Musafir

Mohobbat se mohobbat hai hume
Magar mohobbat karne ka shaunk nahi

Kaafi lambe safar ke baad dar par aya koi
Kaafi arse baad dar par aane diya maine koi

Kuch kadam usne badhaye toh kuch humne
Phir hona kya tha? Do kadam agey badh vo chaar piche hogaye

Aur zaleel kar ek naseh de gaye,
“Tu toh pehle hi barbaad hai, badnaam hai
Tu toh pehle hi barbaad hai, badnaam hai ishq ki galiyo mein
Khud ko bass khud hi ke kareeb rakh,
Le ahd, Bann musafir, or Zindagi ko parwaaz mein tabdeel kar”

Isiliye, mohobbat se mohobbat hai hume
Magar mohobbat karne ka shaunk nahi!

The last talk we’ll never have

Chalo aaj baith hi jate hain saath,
Magar, na koi waadein honge, aur na unhe nibhane ki kasmein
Tu pyar hai aur shayad rahe kal bhi,
Magar ye saath nahi manzoor ab, kyunki mukammal na hoga ye kabhi
Duur reh kar isse nibhane mein sukoon pata hu
Aur paas aakar, sirf tujhe khone ka darr pata hu
Jo haq khayaalon mein hai mera tujhpar, vo namumkin hai asal mein
Jhoote dilason mein hi sahi, apne khwaabon ko jee jata hu
Tabhi toh khud hi ke khwaabon ko, khudgarz kehlata hu
Tu pyar toh rahega, phir bhi
Magar, mukammal na hoga kabhi, na mai hone dunga kabhi!

Abhi toh bohot kuch baaki hai

Abhi toh bohot kuch baaki hai
Ek jahaan banana baaki hai, aur ussi mein fanaah hona baaki hai
Tere chehre ki shikanj mitana baaki hai,
Teri kisi ek muskurahat ki vajah ban-na baaki hai

Abhi zyada ilm nahi mera teri khata-e-naraazgi se, usse bhi toh taaruf hona baaki hai
Ye zindagaani choti hi sahi, iske gehre pal hi kaafi hain
Aur vo saare pal, tere saath bitaane baaki hai

Na kisi ko haasil kia, na kisi ke qabil hua
Tujhe khone le liye hi sahi, tujhe paana baaki hai
Iss choti si zindagaani mein hi, bass pal bade bitaana baaki hai
Abhi toh aaye hain janaab, jeena abhi baaki hai!

🍁

Zindagi kaatne aur jeene mein fark hai
Batao zara, logon ko hamare khush rehne mein hi harz hai

Hairaniyaan hain unhe hamari betabiyon se,
Koi gunah toh nahi dil ki chabiyon mein?

Ek hi mitti ke hain sab, aur mitti ka koi mazhab nahi
Phir bhi sukoon kahan inki dhadkano mein

Dhoondo ruhaniyat zindagi ki iss raftaar mein,
Kahin kho na baithein khud ko hi iss daud mein

Rakho aankho mein hairaniyaan, aur dil mein betabiyaan , Baant kar chaabi dilon ki
Magar, pyar se!

Dastaan

Ishq mohabbat ka naam toh harr deewar par hai,
Ae bandeya, tu likh kar dikha aj koi dastaan
Zindagi ek nazm hai teri, aur tera hi zor iss par
Kya sahi Kya galat,
Ye tay karega sirf tu, na koi aur
Kuch apne hain, toh kuch rishte kacche hain
Paraye hue toh apne dum se hi hain
Tu hi tu hai tera iss hyat mein,
na koi tera khud ka hai
Toh todd de inn bandishon ko, ae bandeya
Tu likh kar dikha aj koi dastaan

Khafa si wafa

Kehne ko toh hamari wafa ke gawah ki kami nahi, thukraya toh bohoton ko humne bhi, tumhare liye
Magar inn khamosh akeli raaton se puchna bhi koi gunah nahi, betaabi inhe bhi thi, sirf, tumhare liye
Betaabi unn aankho ke liye, unn saanson ke liye
Tumhare iss dil mein palti meri chahton ke liye
Hume koi ikhtilaaf nahi ki tum majboor the,
Magar humare jazbaat bhi tumhari majboori ke khilaaf the
Vaise toh koi gila-shikhwa bhi nahi tumhare liye,
Akhir be-shumar mahobbatt thi, koi khata nahi
Khwaish toh zabt karne ki thi tumhe apne aap mein,
Kya pata tha, hum khud ka hi nasheman bana lenge uss tehkhane mein
Isiliye, mile agar waqt kabhi, toh pata le lena hamari wafa ka!

Batao, dhoondoge mujhe?

Chalo aj ek khel khelte hain
Mai kahi chhup jata hu, aur tum mujhe dhoondo
Khel mein hi sahi, bekaraar toh tum bhi hoge mujhe paane ke liye
Phir haar jaane ka gamm na hoga mujhe, tumhari uss bekaraari ka hausla jo milega mujhe
Pal bhar ke liye hi sahi, ulfat mein na sahi
Tishnagi dikhegi tumhari aankho mein mujhe
Phir chaahe hamari zameen mil jae, ya aasmaan aakar tumhare kaan mein phus-phusaye
Dhoond toh loge hi tum mujhe
Aur iss tarah, khel mein hi sahi, ulfat mein na sahi
Puri kaiynaat jutt jayegi hume milaane ke liye
Chalo phir, shuru karte hain
Mai kahi chhup jata hu, aur tum mujhe dhoondo!

Kaun hu mai?

Ik bawaal hu, toofan hu,
Phir bhi bemisaal hu mai
Teri khamoshi mein chupa hua raaz hu mai
Sardi ki vo chai ki piyali hu, garmi mein aag ki chingari bhi hu
Tere mann mein chal rahi kashmakash hu mai
Pura jo na ho saka tera vo khwaab hu,
Besahara ki ibadat hu mai, khuda ki di hui ijazat hu mai
Ansuna pyar ka vo nagma hu, ooncha hu, phir bhi ansuna hu mai,
Aakhiri biscuit ko churane ki hoshiyaari hu, jaate hue ko na rokne ki nasamjhi bhi hu mai
Tere dil ke ik kone mein bana khandar hu mai, phir bhi tujhe lagta khoobsurat hu mai
Maan ya na maan, tera hi vajood hu mai!
