Tawaqu’aat

kho kar guroor kyun aaye ho tum
achanak se iss tarah
k talo-e-sehar magrib se aaj ho
goya aisa gumaan


sambhaalo ye hosh kahaan bekhabar
hue ho tum jaan-e-jaan
khawabon se door mile ho mujhe tum
kahaan ye kis tarah


hua aashan kyun ye daur
hoon ban chuka kyun koi aur


ik arsa hua
lage the jo zakhm
abhi tak bhare nahi


quredo na yoon
bikhar me na jaaoon
yaheen iss jagah
