आँगन की चिड़िआ

आखिरी बार कुछ पूछूं तुमसे

जाने से पहले थोड़ा रुठु तुमसे

गुस्सा थी तो थपकी दे देती

नाराज़गी यूँ बातों में कह देती

चेहरा भी ना देखा तुमने मेरा

मैं तो कलेजे का टुकड़ा थी तेरा

बढ़ती हुई कैंचियां नहीं

काँटों से हथियार हैं वो

चुभते हैं माँ सुई से ज़्यादा

मेरे जिस्म के आर पार हैं वो

आँखों का तारा कहके

मुझसे इतने वादे करके

पल में खत्म था मेरा वज़ूद

हाथों से किनारा करके

आँगन की चिड़िआ, बैठी थी मुंडेर पे

रात में कांपती, उठती सबेर पे

जाल के नीचे, कुछ रोंदे पंख मेरे

सच कहना, क्या कभी पास थी तेरे

ना कल ना आज, सच क्या था माँ

आखिरी बार कुछ पूछूं तुमसे
