Diwan e Ghalib by Kuldip Salil



Hazaaron Khwahishen Aisi {A Thousand Desires Such}

Hazaaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle
Bohat niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikleDaray kyon mera qaatil? kya rahega us ki gardan par?
Voh khoon, jo chashm-e-tar se umr bhar yoon dam-ba-dam nikleDaray kyon mera qaatil? kya rahega us ki gardan par?
Vohkhoon, jochashm-e-tar seumrbharyoon dam-ba-damnikleNikalna khuld se aadam ka soonte aaye hain lekin
Bahot be-aabru hokar tere kooche se hum nikle

Bharam khul jaaye zaalim! teri qaamat ki daraazi ka
Agar is tarahe par pech-o-kham ka pech-o-kham nikle
