दर्द और कविता

  • पुष्कर प्रभात


एक अरसा हुआ तुझपे कुछ लिखे हुए ।

नहीं, ऐसा नहीं कि मेरा प्यार अब कविता नहीं करता,

ऐसा नहीं कि मन में तेरी यादों का काफिला नहीं चलता,

ऐसा भी नहीं कि अब आँसुओं कि स्याही नहीं मिलती.

नहीं, ऐसा नहीं कि अब दिल से आहें नहीं निकलती ।


बस यूँ है

कि परेशान इस दिल को ज़रा आराम पहुँचा रहा हूँ ।

इससे पहले कि कलम की नीब कोई जख्म़ फिर उधेड़े,

वक्त का मलहम लगा रहा हूँ ।

पर फिर किसी रोज जब,

मेरी ये तन्हाई होगी,

यादों का समा होगा,

कुछ अश्क कागज भिगो देंगे,

तब कोई गज़ल, कोई शेर मुकम्मल होगा ।


ये भी अजीब है न,

कि जिस पन्ने पे सारा दर्द सिमटा होगा,

उसे फाड़ सकूँगा,

उसे जला सकूँगा ।

शायद कहीं फेंक उसे,

भुला सकूँगा ।

पर कविता मिटेगी नहीं,

दर्द तब भी उतना होगा ।

हाँ, आँसू सूख जायेंगे,

वो लम्हां गुज़र जाएगा,

उन पन्नों में वो

गज़ल, कविता, या शेर खो जाएगा ।

पर ये तन्हाई, तेरी यादें मिटेंगी नहीं ।

कुछ खुले ज़ख्म होंगे,

और हाँ, ये दर्द तब भी होगा…………उतना ही होगा ।

Pain and Poetry

by pushkar prabhat


It has been a while,

Since I wrote, something for you.

No, it’s not like

my love doesn’t

hum verses anymore.

It’s not that

Your memories doesn’t

wind me up.

It’s not that

my tears don’t

ink rhymes anymore.

No, it’s not like

My heart doesn’t

Beat for you, anymore.


Its is just that,

i am trying to cure

my aching heart;

before the nib of my pen

bleeds another wound.

i am letting the time

heal, its broken parts.

But again,


in moments alone

with your memories;

these tears will drench

some blank papers.

Then, some sonnets, a lyric

or a composition will, take form.


Isn’t it strange……

how all my pain,

my every sorrow,

will be caged in those papers.

i will be able to

tear them up,

burn them.

Or just throw them

in some corner, somewhere,

and forget.

But those verses

won’t die.

The pain won’t


yes, the tears will dry,

that moment will pass.

That rhyme, those lyrics, my verses

will be lost in those pages.

But, this loneliness,

your memories,

will haunt me, still.

Some wounds will be

left behind, open.

And yes, this pain

will remain;

my heart will still ache, the same.
