Ek Tilismi Khel

kaise kaise naam likhe the

vaqt ne mah-o-sal ke rukh par

tufanon ne paala maara

saare ho gae tittar-bittar

saiqal kar ke rakhna chaha

ham ne kuchh namon ko bacha kar

umr ki maujen baha le gaiin

saare laal aur saare javahir

tarz-e-khiram ke phuul khile the

aati jaati rahguzar par

aaj hai sirf ghubar ka parda

kaisi manzil kaisa manzar

dhajji dhajji bikhar rahi hai

tani hui ehsas ki chadar

kuchh harfon ki maddham si lau

kaanp rahi hai laraz laraz kar

khushbu apni kho baitha hai

sab sheron ka mushk aur ambar

surat apni badal chuke hain

ahd aqide masjid mimbar

kaise khali haath khade hain

shaah vazir amiir gadagar

ujdi khvab-o-khayal ki duniya

apne gharon men sab hain be-ghar

kyun-kar joden apne tukde

haar gae hain saare rafugar

khuni badal gahre gahre

chhate nahin hain baras baras kar

aur zaminen ankhen munde

mast hui hain lahu pi pi kar

ek tilismi khel racha hai

jaane kaun hai ye jadugar
