Ruksat....

Ye zillat, ye furqat, ye gurbat, ye tauhmat
Ye jurrat ka ehsaas aur woh har ek alfaaz...
Aur tumhara saath nahin,
Har raat ek ye baat nahin,
Ab aur khamoshi ki jubaan nahin
Aur ye yakeen ke intehaan nahin

Bas main aur mera dil hi sahi,
Har roz, ab aur besabra nahin...
Kahin sukoon se basar to kar lenge
Humsafar, shayad aur bhi milengey

Har pal mein kabhi talash, kabhi aas, aur ek pyaas mili....
Ek umra si nikal gayi ho mano, aur ab bhi hain haalat wahi

Aur kitne sitam sahoon, ki aur aadat nahin
Mujhe ishq ka aasra tha, par ab aur himmat nahin
Mera kaafila, ek shama bhi roshan kar legi
Tere chiraag se jalne ki, aur aarzoo nahin

Main tanha hi aayi thi, ye safar bhi tanha hi teh kar loongi
Deedar pe purdah hai, is kafan ko naqaab samajh ke pehen loongi
Mere saath saath, meri rooh bhi shayad, ab ghaayal ho chuki hai....
Ik shiddat se koshish thi jis chahat ki, ab usse bhi nafrat ho chuki hai

Shayad ibaadat ka farmaan tha, wo tera mujhe jo, har ehsaan tha
Uska janaaza uthaye hoon, bas tujhse ruksat ka aakhiri armaan tha

Main tujhse mohabbat kar sakoon......

Jab yun haalaat hain, tum saath hokey bhi saath nahin
Yaadon mein beshumaari hai, par lab pe wo alfaaz nahin
Kab tak yun hi ye haal-e-dil chupaya karein,
Yun dartey hain tumko khone se, ki ye raaz bhi na jataaya karein
Ab bhi yehi kehti hoon, main tujhse nahi ....apne se mohabbat karti hoon
Kabhi gaur se doob ke to dekh, meri aankhon mein nasha hai, tere khwabon jaisa....
Main tujhse ishq, beshumaar, bepanaah aur be-intehaan karti hoon....
Is se pehle ye sabra ka baandh toot jaaye, aur main tujhse ya tu mujhse rooth jaaye
Kuch aisa karte hain, ye tamaan umra isee lamhe mein simat jaaye...
Tu mera khuda ho aur main teri ibaadat kar sakoon....
Main sirf tujhse, aur tujhse hi mohabbbat kar sakoon....

Kaisa lagta hai???

Uski aankhon mein, khud ko dhoondh ke bhi, kabhi naa paana kaisa lagta hai...

Jo apni takdeer se kahin door hai, use apna khuda banana kaisa lagta hai...

Umra kat gayi hai saari intezaar mein, phir bhi uske deedar ko tadapte hi jaana kaisa lagta hai

Ye jaante huye bhi vo bewafaa hai, us se wafaai ki umeed karte jaana kaisa lagta hai....

Wo beparvaah hai mujhse, ye jaanke bhi uski parvaah mein jeena kaisa lagta hai ....

Aankhein to nam hain ek arsey se, phir bhi yun hi muskuraate jaana kaisa lagta hai

Apne sanam ko, ghairon ke khwaaish me dekhtey jaana kaisa lagta hai

Usko to humein bhulaye zamaane ho gaye, aaj bhi use yaad karte jaana kaisa lagta hai....

Ek kaafir ko ghar mein laana, uske saath zindagi ke sapne sajaana kaisa lagta hai....

Just those doubts......

Yet another day rolls in and wraps out,
I'm living day in & out, with my usual doubts

Doubts about a dream thats on the verge of being a reality or a myth
Doubts about surprises which make me hold my breath & sink with it
Doubts about the society with no room for insurgency or plight

Doubts about a heaven that seldom cares to hail on earth
Doubts about the caged birds that are yearning to fly and perch

Doubts about the rising sun and the waning moon
Doubts about a day dreamer under the bright noon
Doubts about the survival and existence of species
Doubts about the miracles and superstitions which creep in

Doubts about the angles and demons who appear only in dreams
Doubts about a beer drinker who sips, his glass filled to the brim

Doubts about the ancient sagas and the heroes who existed
Doubts about the kingdoms, the kings, queens and the princess
Doubts about another dawn, another day and another night
Doubts about believing or ignoring what comes to my sight

Doubts about the memories from the past & life in present
Doubts about that great God, they claim is 'Omnipresent'

Doubts about the pouring rain
Doubts about the loss & gain

Doubts about peace and happiness
Doubts surrounding the crystal mazes

Doubts about the presence of spirits and ghosts
Doubts about loosing someone, we love the most

Doubts about a life after death
Doubts about a breath that follows this breath

Doubts about the love that never was
Doubts about the marriage rituals & laws
Doubts about the truth that was seldom told
Doubts about the facts that gradually unfold

Doubts about you and me
Doubts, that never seem to be..........
