Javed Akhtar Poetry

Gali Mein Shor Tha Matam Tha Aur Hota Kya
Main Ghar Mein Tha Magar Is Gul Mein Koi Sota Kya
Is Shehar Mein Jeene Ke Andaaz Niraale Hain
Hontho Pe Lateefe Hai Aawaz Mein Chhaale Hain
Apni Vajahe-Barbaadi Suniye To Maje Ki Hai
Zindagi Se Yoon Khele Jaise Dusre Ki Hai
Sab Ka Khushi Se Faasla Ek Kadam Hai
Har Ghar Mein Bas Ek Hi Kamra Kam Hai
Humko Uthna To Munh Andhere Tha
Lekin Ik Khwab Humko Ghere Tha
Khush-Shakal Bhi Hai Vo, Ye Alag Baat Hai, Magar
Humko Jaheen Log Hamesha Ajeej The
Kaun Sa Sher Sunayun Main Tumhe, Sochta Hun
Nya Uljha Hai Bahut Aur Purana Mushkil
Gin-Gin Ke Sikke Hath Mera Khurdura Hua
Jaati Rhi Vo Spars Ki Narmi, Bura Hua.
Unchi Imaaraton Se Makaan Mera Ghir Gya
Kuch Log Mere Hisse Ka Suraj Bhi Kha Gye.
Lo Dekh Lo Ye Ishq Hai Ye Vasl Hai Ye Hizr
Ab Laut Chalein Aao Bahut Kaam Pada Hai
Veh Shakl Pighali To Her Shay Mein Dhal Gayi Jaise
Ajeeb Baat Hui Hai Use Bhulaane Mein
Mere Vujood Se Yoon Bekhabar Hai Vo Jaise
Vo Ek Dhoopghadi Hai Main Raat Ka Pal Hoon
Tumhein Bhi Yaad Nhi Aur Main Bhi Bhool Gya
Vo Lamha Kitna Haseen Tha Magar Fuzool Gya
Unse Ab Vaaps Kharidun Khud Ko Main
Log Jo Maange Voh Apne Daam Doon
.Jaankar Mili Hai Mujhe Tanhai
Aa Meri Jaan Mujhko Dhoka De
mujh ko yaqin hai sach kahti thin jo bhi ammi kahti thin
jab mere bachpan ke din the chand mein pariyan rahti thin
mujh ko yaqin hai sach kahti thin jo bhi ammi kahti thin
jab mere bachpan ke din the chand mein pariyan rahti thin
ek ye ghar jis ghar mein mera saz-o-saman rahta hai
ek wo ghar jis ghar mein meri buDhi nani rahti thin
shahr ke dukāñ-dāro kārobār-e-ulfat meñ suud kyā ziyāñ kyā hai tum na jaan pāoge
dil ke daam kitne haiñ ḳhvāb kitne mahñge haiñ aur naqd-e-jāñ kyā hai tum na jaan pāoge
