is raat ki subah nahin

ek seher ki aas mein
wo raat bhar sajti rahi
lamhe saare ishq mein
ghalib hi padhte rahe

zari ke libaas mein
taare wo jadti rahi
apna jahaan paane ko
zewar saare ladte rahe

neend kone mein waheen
mayoos bas khadi rahi
bojhal palkein jhuki nahin
khwab beghar hi rahe

seher kambakht aaya nahin
raat yun chalti rahi
ya shayad aa kar chala gaya
nayan bas takte rahe

seher kaun? maloom nahin!
jo sajti rahi wo zindagi thi

Kaun Banega Karodpati

A post after a long time.. inspired by the popular game show

kehte hain bas call karo
jo mango wo milta hai
lakhon roz lagate hain
par phone nahin lagta hai

kucch chhoote hain kuchh dabate hain
kuchh awaaz se number lagate hain
jaldi se number lagwa dein
aise agent bhi aate jaate hain

alishaan sangemarmar ke
telephone booth hain
dil ko sukoon pahuchate
ye haseen jhooth hain

mera number bhi aayega
is aas mein baithe saare hain
ghaaat ghaat se phone lagaya
sakshi iske taare hain

kataar lambi hai
network bhi rehta busy hai
par lagate hain sab roz
ab khud kamana bhi kahan easy hai?

sabki koi majboori hai
apni tragic story hai
maa beemar, pati lachar, beta awaara
ya kabhi chhalti koi chhori hai

kisi ko bas unse milna hai
koi aur lobh swarth nahin
ek autograph mil jaaye bas
fir aa jaaye chahe maut waheen

ek roz maine bhi try kiya
tab jaana kya dastaan hai
jisko sab hain phone lagate
wo bachhan nahin bhagwaan hai

Nazm

Ek nazm ki talaash mein
tatole zehen ke andhere galiyaare
kuchh lafz jo aa lage pairon se
ya chhoo gaye faili hatheliyon ko
unhe toda.. joda... milaya...
nazmein bani zaroor
par mukammal nahin thi...

kheej kar talaash chhod di maine

nazm hi thi
zindagi nahin

mausam..

hawa ka rukh badal raha hai
gulshan fir mehekne ko hain
thake thake bujhe kadam
fir se ab behekne ko hain

suna hai bahaar aane wali hai
suna hai mausam badalne ko hai

is mausam meri tanhayee
tumhe tanha hi rehna hoga
saath tumhara ab main
aur nahin de paoonga

is mausam mere dard
tumhe akele bilakhna hoga
saath tumhare ab main
aur nahin ro paoonga

is mausam mere swapn
tumhe akele udna hoga
haqeeqat par aakhein moondein
aur nahin so paoonga

is mausam mere mann
tumhe rang badalna hoga
saath tumhare beete pal mein
ab aur nahin ji paoonga....

Tasveer

Kal jab lambe arse baad tumse mulaakat hui
tumhari aankhon mein jhaankne ki koshish thi maine
har kone mein apna koi nishaan khoj raha tha
kuchh na milne par mayooos hi ho chalo tha
ki tabhi pichwade mein ek chhota sa band kamra dikha
andar saamne wali deewar par ek tasveer latki thi
dhool ki aisi parat thi ki
apna hi aks pehchaan nahin aa raha tha
khidkiyan band thi roshni ka koi zariya nahin tha
yun laga ki kayee dinon se tum wahan nahin aayi ho...

bhula diye jaane par dukhi ho gaya tha main
shayad tumne bhi meri aakhon mein mayoosi padh li thi
pata nahin tab jo maine tumahri aankhon mein dekha
wo mehez hamdardi thi ya kuchh aur
par nadaan man fir se yahi aas lagaye baitha hai
ki koi awaara hawa ka jhonka
tumhare lagaye bandhan tod kar
us tasveer par se dhool hata jaayega...

NASHAA...

Yun lagta hai har pal
main mehkade mein hoon...

Aakhon mein tera chehra hai
saanson mein teri khushboo
maine pi nahin hai saaqi
par haan.. main nashe mein hoon

kuchh shabd

zehen se tatol kar
kuchh shabd nikale the
kuchh gire , kuchh fisle
aur kuchh zubaan ki sarhad par
jaan apni qurbaan kar gaye

bache hue kuchh shabd
tum tak pahunche meri baat ban kar
par baat thi adhoori aur shabd zakhmi
humein kehna tha kuchh tumse
aur wo kuchh aur bayaan kar gaye


ab sochta hoon kabhi kabhi
yaar kya thi aukaat apni
shabdon ka khel tha sab....
aur mutthi bhar haare khiladi
kambakht humko badnaam kar gaye.....
