• Jab Se Usne Shehar Choda Har Raasta Sunsan Hua;
    Apna Kya Hai Sare Shehar Ka Ek Jaisa Nuksan Hua;
    Ye Dil Ye Aaseb Kee Nagri Maskan Sochun Vehmon Ka;
    Soch Raha Hun Is Nagri Mein Tu Kab Se Mehman Hua!
    ~ Mohsin Naqvi
  • Aaj Bhi Behta Hai Uska Diya Hua Zakham;<br/>
Main Chah Kar Bhi Use See Na Paaya;<br/>
Bas Kehne Ke Liye Hi Zinda Hun Main To Yaaro;<br/>
Par Marzi Ke Saath Kabhi Jee Na Paaya!
    Aaj Bhi Behta Hai Uska Diya Hua Zakham;
    Main Chah Kar Bhi Use See Na Paaya;
    Bas Kehne Ke Liye Hi Zinda Hun Main To Yaaro;
    Par Marzi Ke Saath Kabhi Jee Na Paaya!
  • Do Pal Da Hai Saath Pata Nahi Kado Vichad Jana;
    Rishteya Da Kee Pata Kado Tut Jana;
    Puch Liya Karo Kade Haal-Chaal Sade Dil Da;
    Zindgi Da Kee Pata Asi Kado Muk Jana!
  • Barsat Kee Bheegi Raaton Mein Phir Koi Suhani Yaad Aayi;<br/>
Kuch Apna Zamana Yaad Aaya Kuch Unki Jawani Yaad Aayi;<br/>
Hum Bhool Chuke The Jisne Humein Duniya Mein Akela Chora Tha;<br/>
Jab Gaur Kiya To Ek Surat Jaani Pehchani Si Yaad Aayi!
    Barsat Kee Bheegi Raaton Mein Phir Koi Suhani Yaad Aayi;
    Kuch Apna Zamana Yaad Aaya Kuch Unki Jawani Yaad Aayi;
    Hum Bhool Chuke The Jisne Humein Duniya Mein Akela Chora Tha;
    Jab Gaur Kiya To Ek Surat Jaani Pehchani Si Yaad Aayi!
  • Rakshas Tha Na

    Rakshas Tha Na Khuda Tha Pehle;
    Aadmi Kitna Bada Tha Pehle;

    Aasmaan, Khet, Samandar Sab Laal;
    Khoon Kagaz Pe Uga Tha Pehle;

    Main Wo Maqtool Jo Qatil Na Bana;
    Haath Mera Bhi Utha Tha Pehle;

    Ab Kisi Se Bhi Shikayat Na Rahi;
    Jane Kis-Kis Se Gila Tha Pehle;

    Shehar To Baad Mein Veeran Hua;
    Mera Ghar Khaak Hua Tha Pehle!
    ~ Nida Fazli
  • Aaye To Yun Ki Jaise Hamesha The Mehrban;<br/>
Bhule To Yun Ki Goya Kabhi Aashna Na The!
    Aaye To Yun Ki Jaise Hamesha The Mehrban;
    Bhule To Yun Ki Goya Kabhi Aashna Na The!

  • Dil Tod Kar Hamara Tumko Rahat Bhi Na Milegi;<br/>
Hamare Jaisi Tumko Chaht Bhi Na Milegi;<br/>
Yun Itni Berukhi Na Humein Dikhlaiye;<br/>
Hum Agar Ruthe To Hamari Aahat Bhi Na Milegi!
    Dil Tod Kar Hamara Tumko Rahat Bhi Na Milegi;
    Hamare Jaisi Tumko Chaht Bhi Na Milegi;
    Yun Itni Berukhi Na Humein Dikhlaiye;
    Hum Agar Ruthe To Hamari Aahat Bhi Na Milegi!
  • Tu Khush Rahe To Main Muskuraunga;
    Kahin Bhi Ho Tu, Tujhe Na Bhula Paunga;
    Mere Gham Ka Tu Dard Na Lena;
    Ki Iss Dard Mein Bhi Main Sukun Paunga!
  • Dil Kee Baat Ko Juban Se Kehna Nahi Aata;
    Khafa Hona To Aata Hai, Khafa Rehna Nahi Aata!
  • Dil Daba Jata Hai Kitna Aaj Gam Ke Baar Se;
    Kaisi Tanhayi Tapakti Hai Dar-o-Deewar Se;

    Manzil-e-Iqrar Apni Aakhiri Manzil Hai Ab;
    Hum Ke Aaye Hain Guzar Kar Jaada-e-Inkaar Se;

    Tarjuman Tha Aks Apne Chehra-e-Ghum-Gashta Ka;
    Ik Sada Aati Rahi Aaina-e-Asrar Se;

    Maand Padte Ja Rahe The Khwab-Tasveeron Ke Rang;
    Raat Utarti Ja Rahi Thi Dard Kee Deewar Se;

    Main Bhi 'Akbar' Karb-Aagin Jaanta Hun Zeest Ko;
    Munsalik Hai Fikr Meri Fikr-e-Shopnah Aahur Se!
    ~ Akbar Hyderabadi
