खुवाहिश/ Desire


khuwahish

मुसकुराहट थी झूठी लबों पे,

इक चमक थी उन नैनों में,

फिर भी नमी थी पलकों में..

ना जाने क्यों

नज़रें चुरा रहे थे वो दुनिया से..

इक अनकही-अनसुनी उदासी थी,

बरसों का इंतज़ार था,

सिर्फ इक खुवाहिश थी..

जो अपना है

उसे फिर हासिल करने की, हक से।


English Translation

There was a false smile on those lips,
There was a shine in those eyes,
Yet there was wetness in the eyelashes…
Don’t know why
They were stealing vision from the world…
There was an unsaid and unheard despair,
There was a wait of years
For just one desire
That what was mine
Had to earn it again, with all rights.
