In Dinon

 

itna aasan nahi

andhere mein

tumhein dekhna

 

meri ungaliyon ko

jugnu pehen-ne parte hain

 

itna aasan nahi

khamosh kamre mein

tumhari hansi sametna

 

jaise hothon ko

machhli-jaal phenkne parte hain

 

itna aasan nahi

kyunki

 

tumhara wajood

machalta rehta hai

bhatakta rehta hai

mere aas-paas

sirf saans lene ko

usse meri zaroorat ho jaise

 

itna aasan nahi

kyunki

 

barson se tum

ek ghoont saans le jaate ho

badle mein ik parinda diye jaate ho

 

mere zehen mein

hazaron-hazar parindey hain ab

 

udte rehte hain

saleti pankhon par tumhara

bechain sa aitbaar liye

 

itna aasan nahi

in dinon

tumhe pyar karna

 

…..

 

Ajnabi Intezar

 

metro station par

peechey mud kisi ka

raasta dekh rahe they

train par train chhoottey

jaa rahey they

 

jinhein pata bhi nahi

kiska raasta dekhna hai

kiska intezar karna hai

woh kyun galey ko

akadney dete hain

kamar se peeth ulti disha mein modey

kaun si kasrat kiya kartey hain

 

yun ki dekha jaaye toh

dekhtey rahein hain peechey

lekin aas liye kal ke liye

aane wale kal ke liye

toh saamne kyun nahi dekhtey hum

ankhein kyun nahi theherti kahin par

kisi bhi chehre, kisi shikan, kisi hansi par?

 

bhagtey kyun rehtein hain

awara ankhein liye

baalon mein andhiyan uljhaaye

gardan machkaye

kamar atkaaye

hum sabhi

apne apne ajnabi intezar liye

 

…..

 

Veham

 

Tumhari hansi goonjti hai

Us kamre mein

Jiski deewarein neeli hain

Mujhe neend mein aksar

Vaham hota hai ke hum

Neeley gumbad ke neeche sotey hain

Jiske parchatton mein

Kai kabootar rehte hain

Unki aahatein der talak

neem behoshi mein

Sunai deti hai mujhe

 

Tumhari hansi goonjti hai

 

Phir

achanak

toot ke

bikhar  jaati   hai

 

 

Kaanch ke hazaar tukde

Andhere mein chamak uthte hain

 

Subah kabootaron ke

ghonslon se surkh ansoon tapaktey hain

 

Subah kai par unke mere bistar par

murjhaaye padey miltey hain

 

Tumhari hansi ke kirchon ko

buhaartey hue kai baras lag jate hain

 

 …..

 

Tumhare Haath

 

jis kisi bhi sadak

bazaar, library, coffee house mein milo

aur dikhao apne haath

suna hai behad khoobsurat hain

 

suna hai patli lambi ungaliyan hain tumhari

suna hai aankti hain woh kai shehron ke sapney

suna hai chin pe rakh ke unhe jab

gehri soch mein doob jaate ho tum

toh log tumhare lautne ka intezaar karte hain

doosri duniyaon se din-o-din tak

 

suna hai ke cigarette bhi

zara alsaati hui, angraayi leti hui

jalti hai tumhare haathon mein

sulagti hai itminaan se

ke mooyi zeher-teeliyon ko

tumhara sparsh pasand hai

 

dikhana toh apne haath

kisi pur-sukoon kabristan mein

Patthar ke khamosh kisi takht par

kisi aisi shay ka naam likh kar

joh hum dono ke hi paas na ho

jisko hum dono hi tarastey hon

 

jalti hui dilli ki beraham kisi sadak par

dikhana apne fankaar se haath

Apne hothon par do ungliyon se

hasne ka ishaara mujhe karke

ke yeh pareshan shehar bhi

mujhe hasne ki ijaazat dedega phir

 

shabdon ke syah deewaron ke beech utar kar

chun dena apne haathon se meri khamoshiyan

vasant ke surkh semul joh apni kitabon mein

daba kar befikr bhool sako tum

ke they do hum ek thi tanhayiyaan

ke they hum tum door-door par itne ashna

 

dikhana toh zara apne haath

kahin bhi, kabhi bhi

ke tumhari ek lakeer chahiye mujhe

ke ek lambi lakeer dena hai tumhe

suna hain behad khoobsurat hain tumhare haath…

 

…..

 

Hum ek hi nadi ke do patthar hain

 

nistabdh hawa mein

kateeley manje ke

dhaage se tanga hua

ik din

 

 

tumhari kameez ki cuff mein

zid par adaa hua

turntable ki sui sa atka hua

ik din

 

nayi chitthi sa purane patey par

zehen ke kaaley bazaar mein

awara bhatka hua

ik din

 

Ik din

joh kuch sunta nahi

kuch kehta nahi

 

Ik din

joh ruka rehta hai

apni saansein rokey

 

Ik din

jise pata hai

tum raat jaalane ko

bas kuch taarey

batorney nikle ho

 

alok varsh toh hamare liye

maamooli si shay hai

hum ek hi andher nadi ke

do patthar hain

behte bhete paas

aa hi jayenge

ik din

 

 

bas abhi laut aaoge tum

hamare tanha antariksh

ko roshan karne ka saaman liye

 

…..

Karz

 

toota toota sa

bikhra bikhra sa

karz liya hua

ik din

 

thehra thehra sa

sehma sehma sa

keel charha

ik din

 

utaar lo ise koi

aur rakh lo sirhane ab

jod ke saari khwahishein iski

 

isaa ki tarah

tab se qurbaan

hua ja raha hai
