Kuch aisay mukhtalif bhi hikayat na thi meri

Mohtaaj humsafar ki, musafat na thi meri
Sab sath thy magar, kisi se rafaqat na thi meri

Haq kis se maaangta k makeeno’n k sath sath
Deewar-o-baam-o-dar ko zarurat na thi meri

Such bol k bhi dekh liya un k saamney
Lekin unhein pasand sadaqat na thi meri

Mein jin pe marr mita tha wo kaghaz k phool thy
Rasmi mukaalmay thy, muhabbat na thi meri

Jo dusro’n k dukh thy wohi mery dukh bhi thy
Kuch aisay mukhtalif bhi hikayat na thi meri

Bus kuch asool thy jo bahar-haal they aziz
Janam! Kisi se warna adawat na thi meri. . !

Akelay chand se batain tou wo mazloom karty hain

Kabhi ghar se nikal kar tum ne
Sarma ki thitharti chandni shab mein
Akelay chand ko dekha?
Kabhi sunsaan bagho’n mein
Kisi tanha rawish per chalty chalty, chand se pucha
K wo tum se ziada muztarib kyun hai?
Magar tum!
Band kamray k makee’n!
Khuwabo’n k shehzaday!
Nikal kar garm kamray se
Kahan jao gay adhi raat ko sunsan bagho’n mein?
Akelay chand se batain tou wo mazloom karty hain
Jinhain ghar k deewar-o-dar bhi
Dhatkaar daity hain
Jinhain apni awaazo’n k khnjar
Maar detay hain!

Sirf ye ik ghazal nahi

Yun to teri mohabbat’ain jaan-e-aziz sath hain
Apni bhi kuch qabahat’ain jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Sirf ye ik ghazal nahi, is mein hain kuch safaiyan
Ishq ki kuch wazahat’ain, jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Jism hi manzil, talab apny khayal ki nahi
Aur bhi kuch zarurat’ain, jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Apny liye to aik bhi, lamha jaan-e-fiza nahi
Apni kahan rafaqat’ain jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Aisay bandhay hua hain hum, sham-o-seher ki dor mein
Apni tamam kulfat’ain, jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Tum bhi ho is se ba-khabar, hum hain kahan k mo’tabar
Apni tamam qeemat’ain, jaan-e-aziz sath hain

Dil tou behel hi jaye ga, tanha safar mein hum nahi
Guzri hui kaee rut’ain, jaan-e-aziz sath hain. . . !

Akhri shab k chand se karna

Dharkan dharkan yaado’n ki baraat akela kamra. .
Mein aur mery zakhmi ehsasaat akela kamra. .

Gaye dino’n ki tasweer’on k bujhtay huay naqoosh. .
Taaza, tark-e-ta’alluq k sadmaat akela kamra. .

Dosh-e-hawa per urrney walay khiza’n k aakhri pattay. .
Apni akeli jan, gam-e-halaat akela kamra. .

Akhri shab k chand se karna, balcony mein baatain. .
Us k sheher mein hotel ki ye raat, akela kamra. .

Meri sisakti awazo’n se goonjti hain deewar’ain. .
Sunta hai din raat, mery naghmaat akela kamra. .

Sab samaan ba’hum hain ‘Sajid’ likhny likhanay kay. .
Khoon-e-jigr aur aansu, dil ki dawaat, akela kamra . . !

Meri aarzu hai k moum hon kabhi un k dil bhi mery liye

Koi sham aisi bhi sham ho, k ho sirf meray hi naam se. .
Meray sama’een hon shugufta dil, meray dil-gudaaz kalaam se. .

Meri guftugu k gulaab se ho dilo’n mein aisi shuguftagi. .
Koi aisi nik’hat-e-khaas ho k mehek uthey dar-o-baam se. .

Koi rung in mein kia bharu’n? Inhein yaad rakh k bhi kia karun?
Ye jo bheerh bhaarh mein sheher ki, Mujhy log miltay hain aam se. .

Meri raat meri habeeb hai, ye barri ajeeb-o-ghareeb hai. .
Mery sath chorr diya karo, mery fann se meray kalaam se. .

Meri aarzu hai k moum hon kabhi un k dil bhi mery liye. .
Jinhain bair hai meri zaat se, Jo hain bad-gumaa’n mery naam se. !

Sabhi radd ho gaye jitney bhi ilzamaat thy meray

Ajab halaat thy meray, Ajab din raat thy meray. .
Magar mein mutma’inn tha is liye, tum sath thy meray. .

Meray zar k talab’gaaro’n ki nazrain aisay uthti thee’n. .
K laakho’n ungliyan thee’n aur hazaro’n hath thy meray. .

Mein ik pathar ka gard aalood but tha in mandiro’n mein. .
Na dil tha mery seenay mein, Na kuch jazbaat thy meray. .

Kisi se aur kia ta’eed ki umeed mein rakhta?
Wohi khamosh thy jo mehram-e-halaat thy meray. .

Mein jin sho’lon mein jalta tha usey tum bhi nahi samjhay. .
Mera dil mukhtalif tha, Mukhtalif sadmaat thy meray. .

Mujhy mujrim bana kar rakh diya jhootay gawaho’n ne. .
Sabhi radd ho gaye jitney bhi ilzamaat thy meray. .

Tasawwur ban gaya tasweer, aakhir aik din ‘Sajid’
Isi ka khauf tha mujh ko, yehi khadshaat thy meray. . !
