Ghum Raha Tha Ek Shakhs Raat Ke Khaarzar Mein

ghuum raha tha ek shaḳhs raat ke ḳharzar men

us ka lahu bhi mar gaya sub.h ke intizar men

ruuh ki ḳhushk pattiyan shaḳh se tutti rahin

aur ghata baras gai jism ke regzar men

rang men rang ghul gae aks ke shishe dhul gae

qaus-e-quzah pighal gai bhigi hui lagar men

thanDi sadak thi be-ḳhabar garm dinon ke qahr se

dhuup ko jhelte rahe ped khade qatar men

bahti hava ki mauj men tair rahe the sabz ghar

shahr ajiib sa laga raat chadhe ḳhumar men

niind bhi jagti rahi puure hue na ḳhvab bhi

sub.h hui zamin par raat Dhali mazar men

deta javab kya koi mere siva na tha koi

Duub ke rah gai sada tang siyah ghaar men
