Ghalib ki kalam se – continued

Nuktacheen hai gham-e-dil dil usko sunaye na bane
kya bane baat yahan banaye na bane

main bulata to hun usko magar ae jazbaye dil
us pe ban jaye kuch aise ke bin aaye na bane

khel samjha hai kahin shor na de bhool na jaye
kash! yun bhi ho ke bin mere sataye na bane

gair firta hai liye yun tere khat ko ke agar
koi pooche ke yeh kya hai, to chhipaye na bane

is nazakat ka bura ho, vo bhale hain to kya
haath aayen to unhein haath lagaye na bane

keh sake kaun ke yeh jalwagiri kiski hai
purda choda hai vo usne ke uthaye na bane

maut ke raah na dekhun ke bin aaye na bane
bojh vo sar pe gira hai ke uthaye na uthe
kam vo aan para hai ke banaye na bane

ishq par zor nahin hai yeh vo aatish ‘Ghalib’
ke lagaye na lage aur bujhaye na bane.
