Ghazal-Woh Jo Bas PeyareTthey Ab Peyar Hhuwe Jate Hain

Aur hain koi jo sarshar huwe jate hain,
Hum to bas yun hi gunahgar huwe jate hain.
Bebasihaye muhabbat ke mile gham jinse,
Wohi monis wohi gham khawar huwe jate hain.
Irtaqa ishq ka keya jane khilae keya gul,
Wo jo bas peyare they ab peyar huwe jate hain.
Tumne acha na kiya meri tamanna keyun ki,
Aaj hum apne talabgar huwey jate hain.
Jism ke ghao to bhar sakte hain lekin aiy dost,
Rooh ke zakhm giranbar huwe jate hain.
Jan aur dil tabahi to koi cheez na thi,
Apne afkar bhi beemar huwe jate hain,
Itni arzan to nahin jins-e-muhabbat yaro,
Lo yeh Akhtar bhi khareedar huwe jate hain.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
