अब और क्या होने को है



वक़्त से पहले ये शाम सी होने को है,
हो गया दिल में अँधेरा और शमाँ रोने को है।

काश सब के माथे पे किरदार भी होते लिखे,
अब ना जाने कौन सा खंजर जिगर छूने को है।

अक्ल पे छाई है धुंध और आँखों में धुयाँ,
हर शख्स ढूंढता अपनी शक्ल आईने में है।

मंजिलों के नाम से अब कांपता  है दिल मेरा,
कौन से कांटे जाने रहगुज़र बोने को है।

वक़्त की पेचीदगी या यूँ कहूँ इत्तेफाक है,
हर तरफ दिक्क़त से मेरा सामना होने को है।

चीखें दिलों को चीरती हैं, पर मैं सन्नाटे में हूँ,
क्या क़यामत गयी और सब फनाह होने को है?

कर के वादा क्यूँ जाने छुप के बैठा है ख़ुदा,
अब तेरे आने की खातिर और क्या होने को है।

वक़्त से पहले ये शाम सी होने को है,
हो गया दिल में अँधेरा और शमाँ रोने को है।

  2. कौन से कांटे न जाने रहगुज़र बोने को है.. kya baat... kya baat...

    Excellent read..

    the beauty of a poem is measured by its feelings and the Awww punches it gives to you...

    This one had both in abundance..

  11. Hi Meenakshi,

    "Manzilon ke naam se ab kaanpta hai dil mera."
    Beautiful lines Meenakshi. Indeed, the aspects which you have mentioned, after that happening, what else could happen or go wrong.

    Lovely read, keep posting thought provoking stuff Meenakshi :)

    1. It is not about that single incident Jay, it is about all sorts of gory incidents we hear, read and see, against men and women, against kids. Not to mention the harm we are doing to nature in totality. What else remains to happen! When God is going to fulfil his fabled promise.

      Thanks for reading and liking!
