Between Dawn ..

mumkin hua aap se toh
bhula di jiye hamein
pathar pe hun lakeeren
mita di jiye mujhe.

har roz mujhse taaza
shikayat hai aap ko
main kya hun
ek baar bata di jiye mujhe

dana ko dewaan keh kar
udh rahein hai log
aaj nahi toh kal samjho ge
is dil ke afsane ko.

dhoop kyun nikle baarish kyun ho
yeh sab raaz ki batein hain
inn batoon ko koi nah samjha
aaye toh teh samjhane log

willing, if you may
erase all of me. I am
drawn up on the stone
rub me off, if you may.

every dawn, a new complain
is all you own
what am i?
reveal me, if only once.

scorning, people
are lost in hubris;
a day will dawn when tales
of this heart’d be fathomed.

Why does it shine, why rains?
are all secrets
Known to none, though
many came preaching with answers.
