कोई दूर होकर भी इतने करीब क्यों आ जाता है?

ये ऐसा क्यों हो जाता है
कोई कही दूर हो कर भी
इतने करीब आ जाता है
एक जादू एक आवाज
एक सोच एक एहसास

न बोले वो तो शाम ढलती नज़र आती है
बस उसका एक शब्द भी
सुनहरी धूप सी गर्माहट दे जाती है
दिल को समझाना
इतना मुश्किल क्यों हो जाता है
कोई दूर होकर भी
इतने करीब क्यों आ जाता है

चाँद राते गुजारी है
तो समझ आता है
उसकी आवाज़ का नशा
इतना गहरा कैसे हो जाता है

एक आवाज़ मुझसे मुझे चुरा ले जाती है
एक एहसास मुझे नए ख्वाब दिखाती है
तुम सिर्फ दस्तक भी दे दो
तो कलम खुद चलने लग जाती है
जो मुड़ कर भी न देखो तो
जिंदगी बेरंग बदगुमान नज़र आती है

कुछ बहते आँसुओं ने
वो पहली सी मोहब्बत कर ली है
नहीं जानती वो पूरी होगी या नहीं
नहीं जानती वो मिलेगी या नहीं
पर मोहब्बत है जनाब
बदले में तुमसे तुम को नहीं
बस उस एहसास को
फिर मांगने की जिद्द करती है

फिर उसी हसीं को ढूंढ़ती है
फिर उसी उम्मीद को ढूंढ़ती है
क्यूंकि कोई दूर होकर भी
इतने करीब क्यों आ जाता है
ये चाह कर भी समझ नहीं आता है

अजी! ये इश्क़ है जनाब
सोच समझ के किजिएगा भी क्या
बस उस सोच को
उस आवाज़ को
कानों में गूंजने दो
आँखों में सिमटने दो
दिल की धड़कन बनने दो
बस बिना किसी चाह के
पलों को यादों को
दिल में घर कर लेने दो

क्यूंकि कोई दूर होकर भी
इतने करीब क्यों आ जाता है
ये चाह कर भी समझ नहीं आता है

    Beautifully written. Thought provoking, you are with me and still I’m alone.

  14. Judy says:

    The poem is so deep.. we over undervalue the power of this feeling called love but we can deny it but a sudden attachment to a person even her or she is at distance. Lovely poem.
