Talab (Quest)

Be-shumaar hai dil ki daastan,
Humne mukhtasar hi rehne diya.
Aasaan nahi lafzon mein bayaan karna,
koshish jo humne kee
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?

 

Socha tha tumhare andheron mein roshni ka sabab ban jayein,
Tumne to hume khudgarz hi samajh liya.
Ache nahi lagte akele uljhanon mein muqtila.
do lafz meethe jo bol diye
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?

 

Khwabon ke kismat mein to bohot door khade the tum,
kyunkar nazron ne tumhe itna kareeb kar diya.
haqeekat se waaqif
tumse jo muh phera humne
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?

                                                 
Yun to saalon se muntazir rahe hum tumhare
phir bhi na aaye tum ek dafa.
Maazi ko peeche chhod kar,
akele jo aage chal diye
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?

 

“Baat na karo humse” humne kaha, aakhir marz the tum hamare,
ki tumne to hume pehchanne se hi inkaar kar dia.
is marz ka ilaaj dhundte dhundte thak gaye
to ye kaha tha tumse
to kaunsa gunah kar diya?

 

Humne samjha tum samjhoge hume.
Arey! Tumne kya kya samajh liya?
zara khafa hogye hum
ispe agar tumse
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?

 

Mehsoos nahi kar paoge hamari chahatein
ye mehsoos humne kiya.
dabaye rakhkhe lafz humne jo
muskurahaton ke pardon mein
to kaunsa gunah kar diya?

 

 Kabhi na kehne ki jo kasam khai thi humne,
aakhri dafa baat karte waqt wo bhi keh diya.
Berukhi humari achanak to na thi,
khamosh ho gye jo hum
to kaun sa gunah kar diya?
