Makan-e-Khwab Mein Jangal Ki Bas Rahne Lagi

makan-e-khvab men jangal ki baas rahne lagi

koi na aaya to zinon pe ghaas rahne lagi

tire vajud ka jab se libas rahne lagi

liye diye hue mujh se kapas rahne lagi

ye aur baat anokhi si pyaas rahne lagi

miri zaban pe us ki mithas rahne lagi

jhalak thi ya koi khushbu-e-khadd-o-khal thi vo

chali gai to mire aas paas rahne lagi

gaya hujum liye baz-did naqsh-e-qadam

hava-e-rahguzar bad-havas rahne lagi

zarae jo the mayassar hue ghubar-e-shanakht

darun se chashm-e-darun na-shanas rahne lagi

abhi ghubar na utra tha saans ka andar

utarne ki pas-e-zindan bhadas rahne lagi

utaar phenk diya jo tha jism-e-bosida

sitaron ki koi utran libas rahne lagi

zyada zor lagane se kuchh na ho sakta

so aae roz ki halchal hi raas rahne lagi

lahad ne daman-e-yakh-basta khol kar rakkha

badan men garmi-e-khauf-o-hiras rahne lagi

na jaane andhe kuon ki vo tishnagi thi kya

har ek aankh men jo be-libas rahne lagi

bigad jis se ho paida koi bigad nahin

so moajize ki mire dil ko aas rahne lagi

mughairat se bhari tirgi ke biich ‘naved’

ik andaruni ramaq ru-shanas rahne lagi
