  • Ghazal


wo andhera hai jidhar jate hain hum


vo añdherā hai jidhar jaate haiñ ham
apnī dīvāroñ se Takrāte haiñ ham

kāTte haiñ raat jaane kis tarah
sub.h-dam ghar se nikal aate haiñ ham

band kamre meñ sukūñ milne lagā
jab havā chaltī hai ghabrāte haiñ ham

haa.e vo bāteñ jo kah sakte nahīñ
aur tanhā.ī meñ dohrāte haiñ ham

zindagī kī kashmakash 'bāqī' na pūchh
niiñd jab aatī hai so jaate haiñ ham

wo andhera hai jidhar jate hain hum
apni diwaron se Takraate hain hum

kaTte hain raat jaane kis tarah
subh-dam ghar se nikal aate hain hum

band kamre mein sukun milne laga
jab hawa chalti hai ghabraate hain hum

hae wo baaten jo kah sakte nahin
aur tanhai mein dohraate hain hum

zindagi ki kashmakash 'baqi' na puchh
nind jab aati hai so jate hain hum
