Solitude

ek arsa ho gaya sonchte sonchte ki main khush hun
lekin ab to inteha ho gai is sonch ki

kab tak is waham ke piche dard ko bhulaaun
ab to inteha ho gai is waham ki bhi

zindigi ye rukh legi ki bheed mein bhi kisi apne ko dhoondega dil
aache hi the hum akale jo kabhi kisi se umeeden na kit hi
khoobsurat lamhoon ka tasawwur kiya tha dil-e-naadaan ne
ab to iteha ho gai is tasawwur ki

 

befikri thi un dinoon jab tanhaai hamara maqaam hua karta tha
kaun kis raah, na humen is baat ka wastaa hua karta tha
ulajh gaye ab itni uljhanoon mein, kyon kar rishtoon ko jagah di
har pal soonchu kya inteha hai in uljhaanoon ki

kal bhi akale the hum lekin aaj ziyada bura lagta hai akelapan
kisi ko kyon bura bolen galti to khud ki hi thi
umeeden jodi thi kyou jab hashr sabka wahi hota hai
kyon nahi yaad rakhkha ki ki umeedon ki bas zara si inteha hai

 

kabhi to koi puch le ki kaisi guzar rahi hai, aisa nhi hota
is liye insaan wahi sahi hota jo har dard ko aankhon bhar ke muskuaata
himmat aati usmein jab wo jaan leta khud ko kaise sambhaalen tanhaan
kyon ki logoon ke dar-guzar ki koi intehaa nahi hoti
