tongue tied

kuch bijli bhee chumki thee
kuch O'lay bhee giray thay
sar e shaam se sehr t'lak
kashish maiN hu'a a'faaqa
na hee tishnagi maiN kami
meh'v e gharq tri sansON maiN
zindagi guzarnay ki
tamanna li'aye hu'aye
munjamid hee rahay hum

from dusk to dawn
the skies belched
hail rained
(stoning of a different kind)
nature nor nurture
calmed the tribulation
only the yearning
to share your
exultation and exhalation
kept me enraptured
yeh dekh ker woh shOkh boli
kaisii hay yeh tishnagi
hum kiya bataiN oos shOkh ko
shabistaanouN kay bhaNwar
se najat pa'aiN tou bolaiN

seeing this, the cute one said
i don't understand this anguish

if i escape

prison of perplexity 
this transient night's 

perhaps then submerged
words will breathe
