Raks karte hue

Raks karte hue
Jis ke shanun pe tu ne abhi sir rakha hai
Kabhi me bhee is ki panahun mei thi
Faraq yeh hai ke mei
Raat se qabl tanha hui
Aur tuu subha tak
Is fareb-e-tahaffuz mei khoyee reh gai

While dancing,
the one upon whose shoulders you rest your head
I too was once in his safeguard.
The difference is that i
Was abandoned before dark,
And you shall remain consumed in this false sense of security till dawn

(Parveen Shakir)
