Aks-e Khushbu Hun Bikharne Se Na Roke Koi..

waiting sad girl in window

Aks-e khushbu hun bikharne se na roke koi,
aur bikhar jaaun toh mujh ko na samete koi.

Kaanp uthti hun main ye soch ke tanhai mein,
mere chehre pe tera naam na padh le koi.

Jis tarah mere khwaab ho gaye raiza raiza,
uss tarah se na toot ke bikhre koi.

Main toh uss din se hiraasaan hun ki jab hukum mile,
khushk phoolon ko kitaabon mein na rakhe koi.

Ab toh iss raah se woh shakhs guzrta bhi nahi,
ab kis umeed pe darwaaze se jhaanke koi.

Koi aahat, koi aawaaz..koi chaap nahi,
dil ki galiyan badi sunsaan hain aaye koi. !!

 

Sundar Komal Sapano Ki Baraat Guzar Gayi Janaa..

sad girl at night, at morning

Sundar komal sapano ki baraat guzar gayi janaa,
Dhoop aankhon tak aa pahunchi hai raat guzar gayi jana.

Bhor samay tak jis ne humein baham uljhaye rakha,
woh albeli resham jaisi baat guzar gayi jana.

Sada ki dekhi raat humein iss baar mili toh chupke se,
Khali haath pe rakh ke kya saugaat guzar gayi jana.

Kis konpal ki aas mein ab tak waise hi sar-sabz ho tum?
Ab toh dhoop ka mausam hai barsaat guzar gayi jana.

Log na jaane kin raaton ki muraadein maanga karte hain?
Apni raat toh woh jo tere saath guzar gayi jana..!!

Woh Toh Khushbu Hai Hawaon Mein Bikhar Jayega..

Woh toh khushbu hai hawaon mein bikhar jayega,
Masla phool ka hai phool kidhar jayega.

Hum toh samjhe the ki ek zakhm hai bhar jayega,
Kya khabar thi ki ragg-e jaan mein utar jayega.

Woh hawaon ki tarah khanabajan phirta hai,
Ek jhounka hai jo aayega guzar jayega.

Woh jab aayega toh phir uss ki rafaqat ke liye,
Mausam-e gul mere aangan mein thehar jayega.

Aakhir woh bhi kahin rett pe baithi hogi,
Tera ye pyaar bhi dariya hai utar jayega.. !!

Khuli Aankh Mein Sapna Jhaankta Hai..

Khuli aankh mein sapna jhaankta hai,
woh soya hai ki kuchh kuchh jaagta hai..

Teri chaahat ke bheege junglon mein, 
Mera tann  more ban kar naachta hai.. 

Mujhe har kaifiyat mein kyon na samjhe, 
woh mere sab hawaale jaanta hai.. 

Main uski dastaras mein hun magar woh, 
Mujhe meri raza se maangta hai.. 

Kisi ke dhyaan mein dooba hua dil, 
Bahane se mujhe bhi taalta hai.. 

Sadak ko chhod  kar chalna padega, 
Ki mere ghar ka kaccha raasta hai… !!
