Aisi Hi Sard Shaam Thi Woh Bhi..

Aisi hi sard shaam thi woh bhi,
jab woh mehndi rachaaye haathon mein,
apni aahat ke khauf se larazaan,
soorkh aanchal mein munh chhipaaye hue,
apne khat mujh se lene aayi thi..

Uss ki sehmi hui nigaahon mein,
kitni khamosh iltizaayen thi..
uss ke chehre ki zard rangat mein,
kitni majburiyon ke saaye the..
mere haathon se khat pakadte hi,
jaane kya soch kar achaanak woh,
mera shaana pakad kar roi thi..
uss ke yaqoot rang honthon ke,
kampkapaate hue kinaaron par,
sat beete hue zamaane the,
saikadon ankahe fasaane the..

Sard shaamon mein der tak aksar,
jab ye manzar dikhai deta hai..
ek lamha,  hinaai haathon se..
mujh ko apni taraf bulata hai..
humnashin rooth kar na ja mujh se ..!!

Bheed Mein Ek Ajnabi Ka Saamna Achchha Laga..

Bheed mein ek ajnabi ka saamna achchha laga,
sab se chhup kar woh kisi ka dekhna achchha laga.

Surmayi aankhon ke neeche phool se khilne lage,
kehte kehte kuchh kisi ka sochna achchha laga.

Baat toh kuchh bhi nahin thi lekin uss ka ek dum,
haath ko honthon pe rakh kar rokna achcha laga.

Chaai mein cheeni milaana uss ghadi bhaya bahut,
zer-e-lab woh muskurata shukriya achchha laga.

Dil mein kitne ahad baandhe the bhulane ke usey,
woh mila toh sab iraade todna achchha laga.

Be-iraada lams ki woh sansani pyaari lagi,
kam tawajjo aankh ka woh dekhna achchha laga.

Neem shab ki khamoshi mein bheegti sadakon pe kal,
teri yaadon ke jaalo mein ghoomna achchha laga.

Uss udu-e-jaan ko ‘amjad’ main bura kaise kahun,
jab bhi aaya saamne woh bewafa achchha laga. !!

Chaand Ke Saath Kayi Dard Puraane Nikle..

Chaand ke saath kayi dard puraane nikle,
kitne ghum the jo tere ghum ke bahaane nikle.

Fasl-e gul aayi phir ik baar asiraan-e-wafa,
apne hi khoon ke dariya mein nahaane nikle.

Hijr ki chot ajab sang-shikan hoti hai,
dil ki befaiz zameenon se khazaane nikle.

Umar guzri hai shab-e-taar mein aankhein malte,
kis ufaaq se mera khursheed na jaane nikle.

Ku-e-qaatil mein chale jaise shaheedon ka juloos,
khwaab yun bheegti aankhon ko sajaane nikle.

Dil ne ek eent se taameer kiya taj-mahal,
tune ek baat kahi laakh fasaane nikle.

Dasht-e tanhaai-e-hijraan mein khada sochta hun,
haaye kya log mera saath nibhaane nikle.

Maine ‘amjad’ usey bewaasta dekha hi nahin,
woh toh khushboo mein bhi aahat ke bahaane nikle. !!

Nikal Ke Halqa-e-Shaam-o-Sehar Se Jaayen Kahin..

Nikal ke halqa-e-shaam-o-sehar se jaayen kahin,
zameen ke saath na mil jaayen ye khalaayen kahin.

Safar ki raat hai pichhli kahaniyaan na kaho,
ruton ke saath palaTti hain kab hawaayen kahin.

Fazaa mein tairte rahte hain naqsh se kya kya,
mujhe talaash na karti hon ye balaayen kahin.

Hawa hai tez charaag-e-wafa ka zikr toh kiya,
tanaaben khema-e-jaan ki na toot jaayen kahin.

Main oss ban ke gul-e-harf par chamakta hun,
nikalne wala hai sooraj mujhe chhupaayen kahin.

Mere wajood pe utri hain lafz ki soorat,
bhatak rahi thi khalaayon mein ye sadaayen kahin.

Hawa ka lams hai paanv mein bediyon ki tarah,
shafaq ki aanch se aankhen pighal na jaayen kahin.

Ruka hua hai sitaaron ka kaarwaan ‘amjad’
charaagh apne lahoo se hi ab jalaayen kahin. !!

Ye Gard-Baad-e-Tamanna Mein Ghumte Hue Din..

Ye gard-baad-e-tamanna mein ghumte hue din,
kahan pe jaa ke rukenge ye bhaagte hue din.

Guroob hote gaye raat ke andheron mein,
naved-e-aman ke sooraj ko dhoondte hue din.

Na jaane kaun khala ke ye istiaare hain,
tumhare hijr ki galiyon mein goonjte hue din.

Na aap chalte na dete raasta hum ko,
thaki thaki si ye shaamen ye oonghte hue din.

Phir aaj kaise kategi pahaad jaisi raat,
guzar gaya hai yehi baat sochte hue din.

Tamaam umar mere saath saath chalte rahe,
tumhin ko dhoondte tum ko pukaarte hue din.

Har ek raat jo taameer phir se hoti hai,
katega phir wahi deewar chaaTte hue din.

Mere kareeb se guzre hain baarha ‘amjad’
kisi ke wasl ke waade ko dekhte hue din. !!

Usne Aahista Se Jab Pukaara Mujhe..

Uss ne aahista se jab pukaara mujhe,
jhuk ke takne laga har sitaara mujhe.

Tera ghum iss fishaar-e-shab-o-roz mein,
hone deta nahin besahaara mujhe.

Har sitaare ki bujhti hui roshni,
mere hone ka hai isti.aara mujhe.

Aye khuda koi aisa bhi hai mojza,
jo ki mujh par kare aashkaara mujhe.

Koi sooraj nahin koi taara nahin,
tune kis jhutpute mein utaara mujhe.

Aks-e-imroz mein naqsh-e-deeroz mein,
ek ishaara tujhe ek ishaara mujhe.

Hain azal ta-abad toote aaine,
aagahi ne kahan laa ke maara mujhe. !!

Saaye Dhalne Charaag Jalne Lage..

Saaye dhalne charaag jalne lage,
log apne gharon ko chalne lage.

Itni pur-pech hai bhanwar ki girah,
jaise nafrat dilon mein palne lage.

Door hone lagi jaras ki sadaa,
kaarwan raaste badalne lage.

Uss ke lahje mein barf thi lekin,
chhoo ke dekha toh haath jalne lage.

Uss ke band-e-qaba ke jaadoo se,
saanp se ungliyon mein chalne lage.

Raah-e-gum-karda taaeron ki tarah,
phir sitaare safar pe chalne lage.

Phir nigaahon mein dhool udti hai,
aks phir aaine badalne lage. !!
