gulzar

Hirasat

dhundlai hui shaam thi

alsai hui si

aur vaqt bhi baasi tha main jab shahr men aaya

har shakh se lipte hue sannate khade the

divaron se chipki hui khamoshi padi thi

rahon men nafas koi na parchhain na saaya

un galiyon men kuchon men, andhera na ujala

darvazon ke pat band the, khali the dariche

bas vaqt ke kuchh baasi se tukde the, pade the

main ghumta phirta tha sar-e-shahr akela

darvazon pe avaz lagata thaa, koi hai?

har mod pe ruk jaata tha shayad koi aae

lekin koi ahat, koi saaya bhi na aaya

ye shahr achanak hi magar jaag pada hai

avazen hirasat men liye mujh ko khadi hain

avazon ke is shahr men main qaid pada huun
