Woh to khushbuu hai hawaaon mein bikhar jaye ga,
Masla phool ka hai, phool kidar jaaye ga..

Mere lafzon se nikal jaye assar,
Koi khawhish jo tere baad karoon.

Iss baar jo eendhan* ke liye katt ke gira hai,
Chirriyon ko barra pyaar tha uss boorrhe shajar se..

(eendhan:fuel)

Main sach kahun gi magar phir bhi haar jaun gi,
Woh jhoot bole ga aur la’jawab kar de ga..

Ku-ba-ku phail gai bat shanasai ki,
Us ne khushbu ki tarah meri pazirayi ki,

Kaise kah dun k mujhe chor diya hai us ne,
Bat to sach hai magar bat hai ruswayi ki,

Wo kahin bhi gaya lauta to mere pas aya,
Bas yahi bat hai achi mere harjai ki,

Agarche tujhse bohat ikhtilaaf bhi na hua,
Magar yeh dil teri janib se saaf bhi na hua,

Taluqaat ke barzakh main hi rakha mujh ko,
Woh mere haq main na tha aur khilaaf bhi na hua,

Aks-e-khushbuu hoon bikharne se na roke koi,
Aur bikhar jaaon to mujh ko na samaitte koi,

Kaamp uthti hoon main yeh soch ke tanhai main,
Mere chehre pe tera naam na parrh le koi,

Jis tarah mere khawb huye raiza raiza,
Iss tarah se na kabhi toot ke bikhre koi,

Apni ruswaayi tere naam ka charcha dekhoon,
Ik zaraa sher kahoon aur main kya kya dekhoon,

Neend aa jaye to kya mehfilen barpaa dekhoon,
Aankh khul jaye to tanhaayi ka sehraa dekhoon,

Apni tanhayi mere naam pe abaad kare,
Kaun ho ga jo mujhe uss ki tarah yaad kare,

Dil ajab sheher ke jis pr bhi khula dar us ka,
Woh musaafir isse har samt se barbaad kare,

Apne qaatil ki zehaanat se pareshaan hoon main,
Roz ik maut naye tarzz ki ijaad kare,

Jahan sawaal ke badle sawaal hota hai,
Wahaan mohabton ka zawaal hota hai,

Kissi ko apnaa banana hunnar hi sahi,
Kisi ke ban ke rehna kamaal hota hai..
