Khud Apne Dil Mein Kharaashein Utaarni Hongi..

Khud apne dil mein kharaashein utaarni hongi,
abhi toh jaag ke raaten guzaarni hongi.

Tere liye mujhe hans hans ke bolna hoga,
mere liye tujhe zulfein sanwaarni hongi.

Teri sadaa se tujhi ko taraashna hoga,
hawa ki chaap se shaklein ubhaarni hongi.

Abhi toh teri tabiyyat ko jeetne ke liye,
dil-o nighaah ki shartein bhi haarni hongi.

Tere wisaal ki khwaahish ke tez rangon se,
tere firaaq ki subahein nikhaarni hongi.

Ye shayari, ye kitaabein, ye aayatein dil ki
nishaaniyan ye sabhi tujh pe waarni hongi. !!

 

Kathin Tanhaiyon Se Kaun Khela, Main Akela..

Kathin tanhaaiyon se kaun khela, main akela,
bhara ab bhi mere gaaon ka mela, main akela.

Bichhad kar tujh se main shab bhar na soya, kaun roya,
ba-juz* mere ye dukh bhi kis ne jhela, main akela.

Ye be’aawaaz banjar ke baasi, ye udaasi,
ye dasht ka safar, jungle, ye bela, main akela.

Main dekhun kab talak manzar suhaane, sab puraane
wahi duniya, wahi dil ka jhamela, main akela.

Woh jis ke khauf se sehraa sidhaare log saare,
guzarne ko hai toofaan ka woh rella, main akela. !!

Khula Hai Jhooth Ka Bazaar Aao Sach Bolein..

Khula hai jhooth ka bazaar aao sach bolein,
na ho balaa se kharidaar aao sach bolein.

Sukoot* chhaya hai insaaniyat ki qabaron par,
yahi hai mauka-e izhaar aao sach bolein.

Humein gawaah banaya hai waqt ne apna,
ba-naam-e azmat-e kirdaar aao sach bolein.

Suna hai waqt ka haakim bada hi munsif hai,
pukaar kar sar-e bazaar aao sach bolein.

Tamaam shehar mein kya ek bhi nahi mansoor*,
kahenge kya rasan-o daar* aao sach bolein.

Bajaa ki khu-e wafa* ek bhi haseen mein nahi,
kahan ke hum bhi wafadaar aao sach bolein.

Jo wasf* hum mein nahi kyon karein kisi mein talaash,
agar zameer hai bedaar aao sach bolein.

Chhupaye se kahin chhupte hain daagh chehre ke,
nazar hai aaina-bardaar aao sach bolein.

Qateel’ jin pe sada pattharon ko pyar aaya,
kidhar gaye woh gunahgaar aao sach bolein. !!

Halaat Se Khauf Kha Raha Hun..

Halaat se khauf kha raha hun,
sheeshe ke mehal bana raha hun.

Seene mein mere hai mom ka dil,
sooraj se badan chhupa raha hun.

Mehroom-e nazar hai jo zamaana,
aaina usey dikha raha hun.

Ahbaab ko de raha hun dhokha,
chehre pe khushi sajaa raha hun.

Dariya-e furaat hai ye duniya,
pyaasa hi palat ke jaa raha hun.

Hai shehar mein qahat pattharon ka,
jazbaat ke zakhm kha raha hun.

Mumkin hai jawaab de udaasi,
darr apna hi khatkhata raha hun.

Aaya na ‘Qteel dost koi,
saayon ko gale laga raha hun. !!

Jab Se Usne Shehar Ko Chhoda Har Raasta Sunsaan Hua..

Jab se usne shehar ko chhoda har raasta sunsaan hua,
apna kya hai saare shehar ka ek jaisa nuksaan hua.

Ye dil ye aaseb ki nagari maskan sochon wehamon ka,
soch raha hun iss nagari mein tu kab se mehmaan hua.

Sehra ki munh zor hawayein auron se mansub hui,
muft mein hum aawaara thahre muft mein ghar weeraan hua.

Mere haal pe hairat kaisi dard ke tanha shehar mein,
patthar bhi ro padte hain insaan toh phir insaan hua.

Itni der mein ujde dil par kitne mahshar beet gaye,
jitni der mein tujh ko paa kar khone ka imkaan hua.

Kal tak jis ke gird tha raqsaan ek amboh sitaaron ka,
aaj ussi ko tanha paa kar main toh bahut hairaan hua.

Uske zakhm chhupa kar rakhiye khud uss shakhs ki nazaron se,
uss se kaisa shikwa kijiye woh toh abhi nadaan hua.

Jin ashkon ki phiki lau ko hum bekaar samajhte the,
un ashkon se kitna roshan ek taarik makaan hua.

Yun bhi kam-aamez  tha mohsin woh iss shehar ke logon mein,
lekin mere saamne aa kar aur bhi kuchh anjaan hua. !!

Agarche Main Ek Chattan Sa Aadmi Raha Hun..

Mohsin Naqvi Poetry

Agarche main ek chattaan sa aadmi raha hun,
magar tere baad housla hai ki jee raha hun.

Woh raiza raiza mere badan mein utar raha hai,
main qatra qatra ussi ki aankhon ko pee raha hun.

Teri hatheli pe kis ne likha hai qatal mera,
mujhe toh lagta hai main tera dost bhi raha hun.

Khuli hain aankhein magar badan hai tamaam patthar,
koi bataaye main marr chuka hun ki jee raha hun.

Kahan milegi misaal meri sitamgari ki,
Ki main gulaabon ke zakham kaanto se sii raha hun.

Na puchh mujh se ki shehar walon ka haal kya tha,
ki main toh khud apne ghar mein bhi do ghadi raha hun.

Mila toh beete dinon ka sach uski aankh mein tha,
woh aashna jis se muddaton ajnabi raha hun.

Bhula de mujh ko ki bewafaai bajaa hai lekin,
ganwa na mujh ko ki main teri zindagi raha hun.

Woh ajnabi ban ke ab mile bhi toh kya hai ‘mohsin
ye naaz kam hai ki main bhi uska kabhi raha hun. !!
