One common literary misunderstanding

Most people think following famous shyr belongs to Mir Taqi Mir, probably due to style of its baher but it is from a relatively unknown poet Zia Azimabadi, who came after Ghalb but died at young age of 19.

اک ٹیس جگر میں اٹھتی ہے، اک درد سا دل میں اٹھتا ہے

ہم راتوں کو رویا کرتے ہیں ، جب سارا عالم سوتا ہے
