Jaun Elia Poetry

Kal Dophar Ajeeb Si Ik Be Dili Rahi
Telian Jala Ke Bhujata Raha Hoon Mein
Wo kya kuchh na karne wale the
wo kya kuchh na karne wale the
bas koi dam mein marne wale the

the gile aur gard-e-baad ki sham
aur hum sab bikharne wale the

wo jo aata to us ki KHushbu mein
aaj hum rang bharne wale the

sirf afsos hai ye tanz nahin
tum na sanwre sanwarne wale the

yun to marna hai ek bar magar
hum kai bar marne wale the

Sab Mere Baghair Mutmayin Hain
Mein Sab Ke Baghair Ji Raha Hun
Yaad use intihai karte hain
yaad use intihai karte hain
so hum us ki burai karte hain

pasand aata hai dil se yusuf ko
wo jo yusuf ke bhai karte hain

hai badan KHwab-e-wasl ka danggal
aao zor-azmai karte hain

us ko aur ghair ko KHabar hi nahin
hum lagai bujhai karte hain

hum ajab hain ki us ki banhon mein
shikwa-e-narasai karte hain

haalat-e-wasl mein bhi hum donon
lamha lamha judai karte hain

aap jo meri jaan hain main dil hun
mujh se kaise judai karte hain

ba-wafa ek dusre se miyan
har-nafas bewafai karte hain

jo hain sarhad ke par se aae
wo bahut KHud-satai karte hain

pal qayamat ke sud-KHwar hain ‘jaun’
ye abad ki kamai karte hain

Meri Bahon Mai Behakne Ki Saza Bi Sun Le
Ab Bohat Dair Mai Azad Karon Ga Tuj Ko
Yaadon ka hisab rakh raha hun
yaadon ka hisab rakh raha hun
sine mein azab rakh raha hun

tum kuchh kahe jao kya kahun main
bas dil mein jawab rakh raha hun

daman mein kiye hain jama girdab
jebon mein habab rakh raha hun

aaega wo naKHwati so main bhi
kamre ko KHarab rakh raha hun

tum par main sahifa-ha-e-kohna
ek taza kitab rakh raha hun

Ye Kafi Hai Keh Ham Dushman Nahi Hain
Wafadari Ka Dawa Kyun Krein Ham
Ye akasr talKH-kaami si rahi kya
ye akasr talKH-kaami si rahi kya
mohabbat zak uTha kar aai thi kya

na kasdam hain na afi hain na azhdar
milenge shahr mein insan hi kya

main ab har shaKHs se ukta chuka hun
faqat kuchh dost hain aur dost bhi kya

ye rabt-e-be-shikayat aur ye main
jo shai sine mein thi wo bujh gai kya

mohabbat mein hamein pas-e-ana tha
badan ki ishtiha sadiq na thi kya

nahin hai ab mujhe tum par bharosa
tumhein mujh se mohabbat ho gai kya

jawab-e-bosa sach angDaiyan sach
to phir wo be-wafai jhuT thi kya

shikast-e-e’timad-e-zat ke waqt
qayamat aa rahi thi aa gai kya

Pass Rah Kar Judai Ki Tuj Se
Dor Ho Kar Tuje Talash Kia
Mein Ne Tera Nishan Gum Kar Ke
Apne Andar Tuje Talash Kia
Mein Bhi Bohat Ajeeb Hun Itna Ajeeb Hun Keh Bas
Khud Ko Tabah Kar Liya Aur Malal Bhi Nahi
