Dar

kaise niklega jite-ji dil se Dar ka ka sahib

kab ḳhauf ki vahshi galiyon men bhatki hui saaat lautegi?

kab andeshon ke saanp mire pedon se lipatna chhodenge?

sahme hue shabdon ko apne siine se lagae baithi huun

kaise batla.un kyuun mujh ko din ke zahrile hathon se!

shamon ke surḳh asebon se, raton ki be-dil ankhon se!

aur aas ke athon pahron se!

Dar lagta hai

ḳhvabon ke ran men pade hue ḳhvahish ke adhure jismon se

aur maan ki ruuh men gade hue tar panjon se

jani-pahchani ankhon men pinhan an-jani vahshat se

rishton ke mazbah-ḳhanon se

bandhan ki zinda lashon se

Dar lagta hai

is jism ki divaron men hai Dar ka ḳhasta gaara sahib

shishe men raqsan sayon se, sanson aur avazon se

pal pal men badalte rangon se! Dar lagta hai

………niili pad jaati huun sahib

chehre ki piili rangat ko kab tak main chhupa.un ghaze men?
