Aaj kal

Nigaahon ki betakkaluff baatein nayee chaahat ban gayi hai
Mulaakton ko dil-hi-dil doharaane ki ek aadat ban gayi hai
Raat pehar mein fark na jaan ne ki ek haalat ban gayi hai
Pehli martaba mehroom dil mohabbat ki amaanat ban gayi hai

Roo-ba-roo tere deedaar ka nazaron ki guzaarish ban gayi hai
Mehak tumhaare jism ki saanson ki farmaaish ban gayi hai
Firaaq ka ye bay noor mausam sabri ki aazmaaish ban gayi hai
Guzarte lamhon ki aahistigi waqt ki chhidi saazish ban gayi hai

Har din tere yaadon ki taazgi subah si shaadaab ban gayi hai
Khaalipan mein guftgu tumse khayaali sawaal-jawaab ban gayi hai
Tu naa waaqif hai kitne armaan behek kar benaqaab ban gayi hai
Tassavur mein tujhe mahsoos karne ki lazzat behisaab ban gayi hai

Tumhara aana, palbhar me laut jaana takleef-dey guroor ban gayi hai
Tumhe rokna, yoon manaana har mulaakat ki dastoor ban gayi hai
Roz intezaar karne ki zidd, meri naadaaniyon ki kasoor ban gayi hai
Teri bewafaai bhi sar aankhon par rakhne ko dil majboor ban gayi hai

Tum

Aatish-e-junoon ki chingaari ho, beqaraar dil ka sukoon bhi
Androoni sard ki thandak ho, barf ko pighlaati maum bhi

Shab ki adhoori khwaab ho, sehar ka mukammal sapna bhi
Khayaali ek khooobsurat uljhan ho, suljhi hui haseen jawaab bhi

Dil ke taar se bajti tarannum ho, qalb mein chhupaane ki raaz bhi
Bewaqt khaamoshiyon ki wajah ho, arz ki hui dilkash ghazal bhi

Sannate mein saanson ki goonj ho, bandh darwaze ki dastak bhi 
Ankahee lafzon ki zubaan ho, khuli kitaab ki bayaan-e-daastaan bhi

Azaad parindon ki parwaaz ho, insaani bandhishon ki aaghosh bhi
Guzarte raaston ki pechchan ho, faasiley par ek an-chooyi manzil bhi

Forever

FOREVER…….

You stepped into my life and turned a gray page over
You rewrote my destiny and changed its course forever

You chiseled my emptiness and carved a tower of dreams
For the parched "Bedouin" in me you were an oasis of streams

The wave of your presence swept away my melancholy
Our hearts crooned on moonlit sands, a soulful rhapsody

When you took my hand and said “Come be a part of me”
My heart renounced my being and embraced captivity

Wrapped in a timeless trance, immersed in love so true
The rhythm of My heart beat now resonates within You


END

Desire doesn't belong

Desire doesn’t belong........

Desire dives into the ocean of the heart
Like high waves rushing to sweep the sand
Like grey clouds all roaring in unison
Gushing to douse the drought ridden land

Desire yearns to light an enduring spark
Like auburn flames kindled by ignition
Like wildfires raging through still foliage
Untamed, unstoppable beyond inhibition

Desire strives to soar into oblivion with wings
Like master illusionists preparing to levitate
Like aerials gliding and swooping in flight
An unearthly force not meant to gravitate


Desire waits like a treasure to be unraveled
In a forbidden map that is yet to unfold
In cuffs that haven’t yet imprisoned the soul
In fascinating sagas that are left untold


Desire doesn’t belong to a single mortal
Not bestowed nor pre-ordained
“She” resides solely in pristine pleasures
Stoic, defiant, unrepressed, unchained
