Rahat Indori’s Shayaris

ज़ुबाँ तो खोल नज़र तो मिला जवाब तो दे मैं कितनी बार लूटा हूँ मुझे हिसाब तो दे।

लोग हर मोड़ पे रूक रूक के संभलते क्यूँ है इतना डरते है तो घर से निकलते क्यूँ है।

शाखों से टूट जाए वो पत्ते नहीं है हम आँधी से कोई कह दे के औकात में रहे।

आँखों में पानी रखो होठों पे चिंगारी रखो जिंदा रहना है तो तरकीबें बहुत सारी रखो।

एक ही नदी के है यह दो किनारे दोस्तो दोस्ताना ज़िन्दगी से, मौत से यारी रखो।

फूक़ डालूगा मैं किसी रोज़ दिल की दुनिया ये तेरा ख़त तो नहीं है की जला भी न सकूं।

कही अकेले में मिलकर झंझोड़ दूँगा उसे जहाँ जहाँ से वो टूटा है जोड़ दूँगा उसे मुझे वो छोड़ गया ये कमाल है उस का इरादा मैंने किया था की छोड़ दूँगा उसे।

जा के ये कह दो कोई शोलो से, चिंगारी से फूल इस बार खिले है बड़ी तय्यारी से बादशाहों से भी फेंके हुए सिक्के ना लिए हमने ख़ैरात भी माँगी है तो ख़ुद्दारी से।

प्यास तो अपनी सात समन्दर जैसी थी, ना हक हमने बारिश का अहसान लिया।

मैंने दिल दे कर उसे की थी वफ़ा की इब्तिदा उसने धोखा दे के ये किस्सा मुकम्मल कर दिया शहर में चर्चा है आख़िर ऐसी लड़की कौन है जिसने अच्छे खासे एक शायर को पागल कर दिया।
