ABIDING

Abiding!

 

That silence in her

Pushed a clot of blood in me

Knocking the inner voices

Palpable only to the contrite self.

Rubbing the dryness in her eyes

A solemn me argued

I shall be the shore to your flow

Damp and precise

Till the limit of being timeless

And beyond

Aksar dil mera mujhse sawal poochta hai

Mutmayeen hone ko tu kya dhoondta hai

Peshaani par ye silwatein yuhi ubhar aati hai

Ya khaanabadosh zindagi ka tu asraar dhoondta hai

Aasaan nahi chalna yahan sard raahon par zindagi ki

Be-takalluf ye dil mera har baar bolta hai

Kuch khwaahisho ka aasma hum saath le chale hai

Umeedo se bhara saara jahaa bolta hai

Aksar dil mera mujhse sawal poochta hai

Mutmayeen hone ko tu kya dhoondta hai

Dil ki khamoshiya aankho mai bhar aati hai

Ya kuch adhure gumshuda jazbaat dhoondta hai

 Aasaan nahi yahan rasmo – riwayat mohabbat ki

Guzarta har lamba baar baar bolta hai

Kuch kafir hasratein hoton par ja baithi hai

Umeedo se bhara saara jahaa bolta hai

Aksar dil mera mujhse sawal poochta hai

Mutmayeen hone ko tu kya dhoondta hai

  Tanhai se joojhti majbooriya jo kaii hai

Yaadon mai simti muskurahat dhoondta hai

          Dhund ko odhkar jo vadiya jhaankti hai

Unhi saaye mai naya basera dhoondta hai

Fakat ab zindagi ek juda tishnagi hai

Umeedo se bhara saara jahaa bolta hai
