Rukhsat-e-Raqs Bhi Hai Panw Mein Zanjir Bhi Hai

ruḳhsat-e-raqs bhi hai paanv men zanjir bhi hai

sar-e-manzar magar ik bolti tasvir bhi hai

mere shanon pe farishton ka bhi hai bar-e-giran

aur mire samne ik malbe ki ta.amir bhi hai

zaicha apna jo dekha hai to sar yaad aaya

jaise in hathon pe kanda koi taqdir bhi hai

ḳhvahishen ḳhuun men utri hain sahifon ki tarah

in kitabon men tire haath ki tahrir bhi hai

jis se milna tha muqaddar vo dobara na mila

aur imkan na tha jis ka vo inan-gir bhi hai

sar-e-divar navishte bhi kai dekhta huun

pas-e-divar magar hasrat-e-tamir bhi hai

main ye samjha tha sulagta huun faqat main hi yahan

ab jo dekha to ye ehsas hama-gir bhi hai

yuun na dekho ki zamana mutvajja ho jaae

ki is andaz-e-nazar men miri tash.hir bhi hai

main ne jo ḳhvab abhi dekha nahin hai ‘aḳhtar’

mera har ḳhvab usi ḳhvab ki ta.abir bhi hai
