izhaar – ahmed nadeem qasmi

Tujhe izhaar-e-muhabbat se agar nafrat hai
tuu ne honToN ko larazne se to rokaa hotaa

be-niyaazii se, magar kaaNptii aavaaz ke saath
tuu ne ghabraa ke miraa naam na puuchaa hotaa

tere bas meN thii agar mash’al-e-jazbaat kii lau
tere ruKhsaar meN gulzaar na bhaRkaa hotaa

yuN to mujh se huii sirf aab-o-havaa ki baateN
apne TooTe hue fiqroN ko to parkhaa hotaa

yuuNhii be-waj’h ThiThakney ki zaruurat kyaa thii
dam-e-ruKhsat maiN agar yaad na aayaa hotaa

teraa ghammaz banaa khud tiraa andaaz-e-khiraam
dil na sambhlaa, to qadmoN ko sambhaala hota

apne badle miree tasviir nazar aa jaati
tuu ne us vaqt agar aaiinaa dekhaa hotaa

hoaslaa tujh ko na thaa mujh se judaa hone kaa
varnaa kaajal tiree aaNkhoN meN na phailaa hotaa

patthar – ahmed nadeem qasmi

ret se but na banaa ai mere achchhe fankaar

ek lamhe ko Thahar, maiN tujhe patthar laa duuN
maiN tere saamane ambaar lagaa duuN lekin
kaun se rang kaa patthar tere kaam aayegaa
surKh patthar jise dil kahatii hai bedil duniyaa
yaa vo patthraa’ii hu’ii aaNkh kaa niilaa patthar
jis meN sadiiyoN ke tahayyur ke paRe hoN Dore

kyaa tujhe ruuh ke patthar kii zaruurat hogii
jis pe haq baat bhii patthar kii tarah girtii hai
ik vo patthar hai jise kahte haiN tahziib-e-safed
us ke mar-mar meN siyah Khuun jhalak jaataa hai
ik insaaf kaa patthar bhii to hotaa hai magar
haath meN teshaa-e-zar ho to vo haath aataa hai

jitne mayyaar haiN is daur ke sab patthar haiN
sher bhii raqs bhii tasviir-o-Ghinaa bhii patthar
mere ilhaam teraa zahn-e-rasaa bhii patthar
is zamaane meN har fan kaa nishaaN patthar hai
haath patthar haiN tere merii zubaaN patthar hai
ret se but na banaa ai mere achchhe fankaa
