खामोश निगाहें

करती हैं बयां सब कुछ
मेरी खामोश निगाहें
तेरे सिवा समझेगा कौन
इनकी अनकही कहानी

दिखाए थे तुमने इन्हें
कितने ही सपने हसीं
चुभते हैं अब टुकड़े उनके
कैसे रोकें बहता पानी

हिज्र की है पहली रात
कर लें थोड़ा आराम
नहीं जानतीं हैं बेचारी
अभी तो है उम्र बितानी

खामोश ही रहेंगी ये
नहीं करेंगी कुछ फ़रियाद
नहीं जानतीं हक़ जाताना
करती आईं हैं कुर्बानी

  1. English translation

    the story of life
    embedded in glances
    who other than you
    can decipher nuances?

    in your language, I did
    dream over the years
    piercing pain, shattered bits
    cannot stop flowing tears

    we try to reach a pact in
    the first night away from you
    half-open peeps can’t count
    ensuing aeons of blues

    silence is their language
    not asking – second nature
    pulling out if unwanted
    sacrificing, accepting failure.
