Azaadi

Sometimes you love someone but that love is merely an illusion. What you feel about such a lost love is beyond words. Here, I have tried capturing the same feeling in a poem.

Unhe paane ki chahat me

Hum khud ko khote rahe

Na ishq mila na sukoon

Bas barbaad hote rahe

Ek taraf thi meri mohobbat

Aur ek taraf thi unki Azaadi

Phir, khol diya pinjra

Aur wo farar hote rahe

Unhe jaata hua dekh

Unke laut aane ki ummeed khote rahe

Hum cheekhna chahte the, rokna chahte the

Par chup khade bas rote rahe

Aankhein bhi num thi

Aur dil me toofaan uthte rahe

Shikayat Hazaro thi

Par lafz kam hote rahe

Wo pyaar ka jhoota daawa karte

Aur hum behad pyaar karte rahe

Todgaye hazaar tukdo me

Aur ab hum unhe yaad bhi na rahe

Aur iss tarah

Unhe paane ki chahat me

Hum khud ko khote rahe

Na ishq mila na sukoon

Bas barbaad hote rahe
