teri talab mein aise giraftar ho gae


terī talab meñ aise giraftār ho ga.e
ham log ḳhud bhī raunaq-e-bāzār ho ga.e

kyā ḳhvāb thā ki kuchh nahīñ Thahrā nigāh meñ
kyā aks thā ki naqsh-ba-dīvār ho ga.e

hadd-e-nazar bichhā thā tirī diid kā samāñ
jo rāste the sahl vo dushvār ho ga.e

un ko bhī apne naam kī hurmat aziiz thī
jo terā saath dene pe tayyār ho ga.e

biphrā huā badan kisī qātil se kam na thā
ham bhī vufūr-e-shauq meñ talvār ho ga.e

go apne paas ek nazar ke sivā na thā
ham har but-e-hasīñ ke ḳharīdār ho ga.e

ye shahr zalzaloñ ke thapeḌoñ se hil gayā
kyā kyā ajab mahal the ki mismār ho ga.e

ḳhvāhish kī uljhanoñ pe koī bas na chal sakā
da.ave fusūn-e-yār ke be-kār ho ga.e

teri talab mein aise giraftar ho gae
hum log KHud bhi raunaq-e-bazar ho gae

kya KHwab tha ki kuchh nahin Thahra nigah mein
kya aks tha ki naqsh-ba-diwar ho gae

hadd-e-nazar bichha tha teri did ka saman
jo raste the sahl wo dushwar ho gae

un ko bhi apne nam ki hurmat aziz thi
jo tera sath dene pe tayyar ho gae

biphra hua badan kisi qatil se kam na tha
hum bhi wufur-e-shauq mein talwar ho gae

go apne pas ek nazar ke siwa na tha
hum har but-e-hasin ke KHaridar ho gae

ye shahr zalzalon ke thapeDon se hil gaya
kya kya ajab mahal the ki mismar ho gae

KHwahish ki uljhanon pe koi bas na chal saka
dawe fusun-e-yar ke be-kar ho gae
