Tanha zindagi

Tanha si hai Zindagi-e-maasum ye aisi,
Bina kisi sath ke hi guzarti chalti hai.
Jaane-anjaane bana li hai aadat aisi,
Ke ab khud ki hi parchhai se darti hai.

Where are you, Cupid

Where are you Mr Cupid,
Why don’t we find you anymore?
Help us, for we are stupid,
Or are your arrows left no more?

Has your bow got wrecked,
Or your wings lie dead?
For love hath utterly wretched,
And it now bleeds red.

No gizmos now blink,
No cosmos lug any sign.
Love now stands on a brink,
Wobbling about inebriated and malign.

Lamenting your absence, it weeps,
Loneliness now viciously creeps.
Why did you leave it high and dry?
Please come back else love will die.

And so Mr. Cupid returned to shower the love arrows,
and once again love spreaded through hearts and marrows.

Nasha Daaru aur Wo

Maahol jamaya tha yaaron ne,
Nasha Chadhana tha jo aj.
Jaam sajaya tha kalakaaro ne,
Yaadon Ko uski bhulana tha jo aj.

Ek hath me sulagta sutta to dooje me tha jaam,
Fir bhi kambakht na kar paya koi apna kaam.

Dawa samjha tha jis daaru ko zamaane ne,
Seene me aag laga gayi alag hi paimaane me.

Hothon se lagaya hi tha maine pahla jaam,
Ke kadwi ghoonth le ayi meetha sa paigaam.

Dikhne lagi gahrai un aankhon ki,
Sunai di wo baatein, wo kahani un raaton ki.
Kaara kaajal jinhe sajati, thi wo haseen ankhein,
Tukur Tukur mere netr jinhe kare the taakein.

Roka maine jaise taise doobne se khud ko,
Uthaya chakna socha nahi yad karna hai usko.
Sochte sochte ke na sochu phir uski yaad aayi,
Kaun kahta hai daaru hai har gam ki dawai.

Matar ka daana guzra hi tha abhi gale se hokar,
Lagi pyas, aayi wo maano amrit me honth bhigokar.
Na rahi madira ki pyaas na kisi sutte ki aas,
Ban chuka tha mai uske rasile honthon ka daas.

Nasha chadha anokha pee li thi jo daaru,
Baithe baithe mai ghooma to laga baat bangayi.
Par kambakht yaad aayi firse tu,
Aur ek baar dobara meri ye zameen ruk gayi.

Chadhti daaru le aai barbaadi ka paigam.
Do nashon ke beech shuru hua sangraam.
Ek or thi wo daaru jo chadh agle din utar jaaye,
Doosri or thi wo jisko apne dil-o-jaan saup aaye.

Kaidi ban huye the giraftar jiske pyaar me hum,
Zamaanat na dila paya aj tak koi sutta koi rum.
