फ़र्ज़ी

जब  कभी  हमसे मिला, दोस्त की मानिंद मिला ख़ूबसूरत  था  वो  लिफ़ाफ़ा, मगर  ख़ाली निकला क़ीमती  जान  के  रखा  बहुत  संभाल  के  उसको लेकिन बज़ार तक जब पहुँचा तो वो जाली निकला उस हुनर,तहज़ीब और  इख़लाक़ के क़ायल थे हम लफ्ज़  पर्दा थे, असल  में  वो तो  इक गाली निकला […]

महरूमी

इस  रास्ते  पे  मेरे  सिवा  कोई  नहीं  है ख्वाबों का क़ाफ़िला बहुत आगे निकल गया वो  मोड़, दोराहे  पे  जिसे  छोड़ आये  थे वो और किसी कारवाँ से जा के मिल गया परछाइयाँ  तक  साथ  मेरा  दे नहीं  पाईं घिरता अँधेरा जब मेरा सूरज निगल गया अब  क्या करेगा कोई  […]

Dark Lady

With her seductiveness she allures, Conque’ring all incestuous values. Beaut tinged with Medusa’s tandems. Gifted to charm hormonal totems.
