Ye diwano ka sheher hai
Yahan ba wafa bikhre khwabon ki khaak chhan-tey hain, aur bewafa pyar bant-tey hain,
Samhal ke chalna yahan, kisi badnaseeb ke tutey dil ke tukde…chubh sakte hain paon mein,
Zehreeley nishan chhod jaatey hain, jin par aansuon ke marham bhi kaam nahin aatey…

Thanks Penthusiastic for allowing me to post this!  🙂

Dedicating Ghalib’s another couplet to you,

“Kahun kis se main ke kya hai, shab-e gham buri bala hai
Mujhe kya bura tha, marna agar ek baar hota”!
