Haunslaa

Jaal kaari aankhon ke sunhare lagte hain
Haalaat tutey tunkdo se fir behtar judte hain
Kyun khauf tera mandraane par tulaa hai
Jab lavzon ko dehleez-e-daaman ki nok tak nahi
Kyun aahaton se kaifyat jod
Aaftaab ki kirno ko nazar rok rahi
Aaino se sach laapata kar
Jooth uss kisi cheekh ki kyun talaash hai tujhe
Zara tark ke shor gumsum kar, dil ki tere bandishein toh sun
Khaamoshi ki samajh hai mujhe

Tu dhadkanon ke koi daav toh chal
Haarne ka haunslaa hai mujhe.

Maazi tere daire se ruskat ho chuki hai
Aa raha kal jo tere aansuon se bheeg, khilna chahta hai
Kaunsa gunaah hai tera, jisse palkein tu raha jhuka hai
Kyun tere haal ko tu muraadon se anjaan baha raha hai
Teri palak ki oss se jo barsaat chuni
Kis binaah par usey tu thukraa raha hai
Rooh ke khwaabon ko hatheli mein buney
Koshish daurahane se kyun katraa hai tujhe
Qaid ilm se khud ko rihaayti likh de zara
Gustaakhi ki pehchaan hai mujhe.

Tharraahat har kadam mein palti hai
Gumsum kabhi har zabaan hoti hai
Raah jo agar na hamwar chalti
Raaste ko kabhi kadamo ki pehchaan na hoti
Dar tujhe fislan mein nahi
Fir uthne se waaqif hone par palta hai
Kyun tu nami ki sacchaayi ko dhak
Rukhi nazron mein mustaqbil basane chalta hai
Berukhi kisi mod mein paane ka
Bebuniyaad kyun umadta khwaab hai tujhe
Kabhi nange-paanv bheeni zameen ko chum toh le
Hamkadam ki kadar hai mujhe

-Ojhal
