tohfa-e-zakhm

tohfa-e-zakhm

 

… patti ke neeche ab bhi woh zakhm hare hain,

kya karu, tumse mohabbat jo hai,

tumhari yaado ko zinda rakhte hain

tumhare diye hue zakhm ko zinda rakh kar …

 

… bikhre baal the tumahare, aur be-adab andaaz…

tahzeeb aur tameez de kar sawaar diya tha maine,

tumhe sajaa diya tha maine …

tum khush bhi hue, itraaye, sab ke saamne, naaz bhi kiya khud ke iss naye andaaz pe…

par andar hi andar kahfa the mujhse …

 

… nafrat tumne mujhse ki,

aur tod diya ghar kisi aur ka …

sirf woh hi nahi toota,

rishte toote. Aur toote dil.

Dil tootne pe mila mujhe woh zakhm …

 

… hua main kamzor tab. aur laachar bhi …

tum mujhe apni nafrato me yaad rakhte ho,

aur main tumhe apne zakhmo mein …

 

… tum ab bhi mujhe yaad ho, kyo ki…

… patti ke neeche ab bhi woh zakhm hare hain !!
