शरीर...इश्क़...ज़िन्दगी...


आँखों से बरसते ये शोले
वहशत के नहीं, मेहनत के हैं.
इन्हें तेरी ज़ुल्फ़ों की नर्म छाँव नहीं
ठंडा-काला अँधेरा चाहिए.

हर साँस में आती है
सुलगते बारूद की बू.
इन्हें तेरे लम्स की नहीं,
गीली मिट्टी की ख़ुश्बू चाहिए.

कानों से नहीं जाती
वीरान--सहराँ की साँय-साँय 
इन्हें तेरी तरन्नुम नहीं,
कोयल का गीत चाहिए.

होंठ सूख कर हो चले कोयला 
तेरे रसीले होंठ नहीं,
इन्हें जी भर सुराही का
ठंडा पानी चाहिए.

बदन एँठ कर दर्द से
दोहरा हुआ जाता है,
इसे तेरा आलिंगन नहीं
सुकून की नींद चाहिए.

  2. very nice.....but missing "love" in these lines....
    शायद मेहनत करने के बाद तेरी ज़ुल्फ़ के साये में,तेरे बदन की खुशबु लिए,तेरे रसीले होंठों से निकली मीठी तरन्नुम सुन कर,तेरी बाहों में सो जाते तो सुकून की नींद आती......
    :-)

  4. A weary soul, weary from his wanderings,seeks the warmth of your being, just the comfort of your presence--just that, only that. Thank you.

    I have never heard this kind of supremacy in Hindi language. Fan of you....

    (I have had read many Hindi poems and stories and i am gold medalist in Hindi for my top performance in 10th board. So I could judge these. I think. :D)
