Gaanv mein main reh nahin paaya
shehar mein ghar bana nahin paya
ye mein kahan aa gaya hun
har raasta wapis isi chaurahe pe khulta paya

ye shahar hai to jungle kaisa hoga
ye hai majlis to tanhai kaisi hogi
jute kharidne ko ghar se nikla tha
kuchh der ret mein nange par chala to sukoon paya

jameen pe pair kabhi tikte nahin
aasmaan wale par bhi milte nahin
khwahish thi ho ghar mein samundar
chand bulbule hi haath apne kar paaya

————————————–

खो गया कहीं सब वो रब-ओ-रुआब
खुद का चेहरा भी मिलता नहीं अब आईने में

चांदी के जो वरक़ थे सारे उतर गये
कागज़ी पुलिंदे हैं, जी चाहे खेल लो

तन्हाई थी, तन्हा थे और खूबसूरती थी
इत्र कैद हुआ शीशी में, मुर्झाये फूल हैं, जो चाहे मोल लो

————————————————–

Opinions have deserted me

thoughts have been lost
whatever has remained behind
I have never known as me

I do not feel weakened
nor do I feel liberated
but I no more know
this sense inside me
