tum ney mujh ko likha hai
Mere khat jala dijiye
Mujh ko fikr rehti hai
aap inhain ganwa dijiye
Aap ka koi saathi dekh ley to kiya hoga?
dekhiye mein kehti hun Yeh bohat bura hoga
Mein bhi kuch kahun tum se
Fariha Nigarina
Ay Ba’nazuki meena
itr bey naseena
rashk’e sar be seena
Mein tumharay har khat ko LOH’E DIl samajhta hun
LOH’e Dil Jala dun kia?
Jo bhi satr hai in ki
Kehkasha’ hai rishton ki
Kehkasha’n luta dun kia?
Hai sawaad’e beenai inka jo bhi nukta hai
Mein usay gunwa dun kia?
jo bhi harf hai inka
naqsh’e jaa’n hai jaanana
naqsh’e jaa’n mita dun kia??
LOh’e dil jala dun kia?
kahkasha’n luta dun kia?
Naqsh’e jaa’n mita dun kia??
Mujh ko likh k khat janum
apnay dehaan mein shayd
khuwaab khuwaab jazbon k
khuwaab khuwaab lamhon mein
younhi bey khayalana jurm kar gai ho tum
aur khayal aany par US Se dar gai ho tum
JURM k tassawur mein gar yeh KHAT likhay TUM NEY
phir to meri raaiy mein JURM hi kiye tum ney
jurm! kiun kiye jayein?
jurm! kiun kiye jayein?
khat hi kiun likhey jayein…!

Tum Jab Aao gi Tau Khoya Huwa Pao Gi Mujhe


Tum Jab Aao gi Tau Khoya Huwa Pao Gi Mujhe,
Meri Tanhai Mein Khawabon k Siwa Kuch Bhi Nahi,
Mere Kamre Ko Sajane Ki Tamana Hai Tumhen,
Mere Kamre Mein Kitabon k Siwa Kuch Bhi Nahi,
In Kitabon Ne Bara Zulam Kiya Hai Mujh Par,
In main Ik Ramz Hai, Jis Ramz Ka Mara Hua Zehan,

Muzda-e-Ishrat-e-Anjam Nahi Pa Sakta,
Zindagi Mein Kabhi Araam Nahi Pa Sakta,,,!!

Ta’aluq apni jagah tujh se barqarar bhi hai


Ta’aluq apni jagah tujh se barqaraar bhi hai
Magar yeh kia ke tere qurb se farar bhi hai

Kuraid or zameen, mausamon ke mutlaashi
Yahin kahin meri khoi hui bahar bhi hai

Yahi na ho teri manzil, zara theher aye dil
Wahi makan hai, diyon ki wohi qitar bhi hai

Yunhi to rooh nahin torti hisar-e-badan
Zaroor apna koi badalon ke paar bhi hai

Mein pathron se hi sir ko patakh ke lout aya
Chatan kehti rahi mujh mein shahkaar bhi hai

Yeh kia k rok k betha hua hun saail-e-hawas
Machan per bhi hun or samne shikar bhi hai

Chupa hua bhi hun jeene ki aarzu le ker
Panah gah meri sher ki khachar bhi hai

Adeem us se karon bhi to kis tarah ka salook
Hareef bhi hai wo apna, wo apna yaar bhi hai…!!!
