जुबां गुस्ताख़ ना हो
मैं ज़रूरते-हद-हिसाब हुए जाता हूँ
बात तुझ पर ना आए मेरे हमदम
मैं शब-ओ-रोज़ पैमाना-ए-जाम पिये जाता हूँ
कई काफ़िले गुज़रे मेरी निग़ाहों से फिर भी
मैं तेरा ही इंतज़ार किये जाता हूँ
मौत तो तेरी रुस्वाई पर ही हो गई थी
अब तो फ़खत साँस लिए जाता हूँ
चंद महकती बातें
बस उन्हीं को लिए यहाँ से वहाँ हुए जाता हूँ
तड़प जाएगा जब देखेगा आसमां से इक दिन
उसका बंदा ये कैसे ख़राब हुआ जाता है ..

Woh dil hi kya tere milne ki jo dua na kare,
main tujhko bhool ke zinda rahun khuda na kare..

rahega saath tera zindagi bankar,
yeh aur baat meri zindagi wafa na kare..

yeh theek hai koi marta nahi judaai mein,
khuda kisi ko kisi se magar pyaar juda na kare..

agar wafa pe bharosa rahe na duniya ko,
to koi shaks muhabbat ka hausla na kare..

suna hai unko muhabbat duaayein deti hai,
jo dil pe chot khaayein magar gila na karein..

zamaana dekh chuka hai parakh chuka hai,
'katil' jaan se jaaye magar iltajaa na kare.. - 'Katil' Shifaai

Na ghubar mein na gulab mein mujhe dekhna
mere dard kee aab-o-taab mein mujhe dekhna
kisi dhun mein tum bhee jo bastiyon ko tyag dou
isee rah-e-khana-e-kharaab mein mujhe dekhna..

Mere aaine mein ek shikast chehra hai
Munsif ke aas-paas ek ilzaam thehra hai

Bhanwar se jaan bachaake idhar aa gaye
Jahaan duur-duur tak bas ek sehra hai

Waar ko bhool jaayenge kisi roz, magar
Chot dil pe hai aur ghaav bhi gehra hai

Aankhon ki nami se dhundli hai nazar
Ya phir naseeb pe chhaaya kohra hai

Ab mere liye maqtal sajao
Suna hai qurbaaniyat ka anjaam sunehra hai.. - Anand Halve

Details:
shikast - defeated; Munsif - judiciary/judge; ilzaam - accusation

Bhanwar - whirlpool; Sehra - desert

Shehar ki raat aur main nashad-o-nakaara phiroonN

ghair ki basti hai kab tak dar badar maraa phirooN
Aye gham-e-dil kya karooN, ay wahshat-e-dil kya karooN

jhilmilate qumqumon ki raah mein zanjeer si

raaste mein ruk ke dam le loon meri aadat nahiN

dil meiN ik shola bhaRak uTha hei aakhir kiya karooN
