Ajeeb sa Manzar

Ek ajeeb sa manzar nazar aata hai
jugnoo andhere mei pighal jata hai
dil tou kabke pathar k ho chuke
abb usspe maqbara banaya jata hai

Sapne lehrate hai ashko ki zameen par
aasha aankho mei jamm jati hai
Awaz aaho mei simat k
sunhari zanzeero se bandh jati hai

abb tou neend bhi zahreeli ho gayi
dusro k armaan pilati hai
Murjhaye sitaro k tale
sehemi khamoshi cheer jati hai

ghaav dard ko sehelata hai
ek ajeeb sa manzar nazar aata hai

English Translation:

Perplexing views flicker from here
Firefly melts in midnight grey
Hearts tranfigured to concretes
now tombs are constructed in array

Dreams sway in a kingdom of tears
hope freezes in the eye
Voices embrace empowering sighs
Glimmering chains imprison replies

Even sleep became venomous
feeding on someone’s belief
Under the wilted stars
scared silence slashes relief

Gashes caress the pain to bear
Perplexing views flicker from here
