Shattered in the Name of Ishq

Devastation through bitter -sweet condiments

Walk over broken crystal

where wine and glass lay together

Shattered and spilt in the name of Ishq

Smile and say love is not a subtle argument?

This ishq has poisoned the lover

This ashiq slain

I blame you

The physicians gaze is the cure

distraction the cause of this death

lover and beloved bloodied stains

immersing deeper into the poison

Who gave you this drink asks Majnu

Laila’s Majnu, Majnu’s Laila

none else!

This silence peirces my heart

You bring pain

Increasing the poison

Indifference

Stop these games

devastation is familiar

I seek not pain

From Ash to life

I came from death

To live once again

A skeptic lover despising conspirers

Melt my heart, then depart?

Leave now if you plan not to stay

As the raw pain I prefer now

to fermented pain of tomorrow

The shattered glass;

A lover’s heart

Broken through the mirror

Mortal reflection

Archer

Who once gazed

Distracted once again

Pierce the arrow now

This forest full of fawns

Seek quarry elsewhere

Laila one of many

I’m not of the forest

I’m not game

I am Laila’s Laila

I sense Shams’s fragrance

His wine in you

I despise every Shams

From the land of Tebrez

So leave me now

Shams comes to break and shatter

Me a foolish prey

The game of mirrors

I would give my life for

Clever now to know you  too shall depart

I seek refuge in Ishq

Through the eternal

As mortal betrays every lover

Do you too play this game?

I seek eternal

Are you eternal?

Or a mirage

A fleeting love

Seasonal insanity

 

Consumed by Ishq’s fire

Under the full moon

We merge

We seek We

Strangers at dawn

Water

One in One eternally

Devotedly

I seek to gaze at the moon

Not at a gazer with a wandering eye

Hungry and thirsty

Who sips from every stream and river

Leave!

I seek the moon

The moon seeks me

Distracted

Leave

Unquenched

Leave

Bored

Leave!

I seek a devoted heart

A loyalist like Hussain

Divine love at it’s peak

God is a jealous lover

So am i

Remain if you are here to stay

If not leave now

Leave

Your love has consumed me

Your wine

Your being

Your gaze

Your lips

Your smile

Your laughter

Your voice

Your breath my elixir

Wine

You the wine

The wine You

I fear this wine

Through total Fana

Saqi and the drunk are one

Yet i seek reflection

So to gaze at you

Fana causes disappearance

Then saqi no more!

No gazing

No moon

No lover

No beloved

One

That fancying
To see oneself

That appetite
To taste oneself
Through oneself
One
That thirst
To drink oneself
Through oneself
One
That devotion
To Love oneself
Through oneself
One
That surrendering
To oneself
Through oneself
One
That bowing

Through oneself

That annihilation
In oneself

Soul Movement in Ishq

This movement
Best unplanned
Spontaneous
The knowing in the unknowing
The feeling in the unplanned
That is the real
Raw
Ishq
I settle for nothing else
I despise mediocrity
I desire erratic expression
Passionate with depth
An uncompromising sense of knowing exactly how to pen the heart fearlessly and shamelessly
I worship heart
Heart is sanam
Ali bood

Nightingale

Sleep no more!
The depth of the night
Sleep no more
Pre dawn
Sleep no more!
Alone with You
US
seclusion
to be in the cave
Just with you
Knee to knee
Eye to eye
Breath in breath
Just with you
This is tahajjud

Heavenly Scape

I seek the musk which effuses from

your being

You’ve aroused my senses through your fragrance
Left in a deep trance
I dance the inner dance
Transported to bliss
Moments long
Yearning for the place we met
Where separation exists not
The heavenly scape
The eternal utopia
Take me there
With every breath

Unveil Me

We desire We

Unveil thyself
Unveil me
Flesh
Raw
Bare
Remove all veils
Expose me
With your light
In broad day light
In the darkness of the night
Let me be known to me
Let me see me without you
Every desire
All secrets
Passion
Strip me bare
Remove all veils
With your stare
Adam and Eve
Primordial state
all exposed
uncovered deeds
translucent hearts
mankind privy
tale or reality
the return to source
the way of the Tao
through unveiling
this shadow game
Eve from Adam
One from One from One
111
I from from I
you from me
me from you
unveil thyself
unveil me
Flesh
Raw
Bare
Remove all veils
We  desire We

Your Breath The Ocean

inhale
Through breath
These vapours I inhale
The morning dew
I kiss the dew
cold and pure
untouched
pure reflection
of myself
through you
inhale
I taste the sweetness on my lips
I drink each droplet
cells absorb
each drop from light
In hope for more
Your spirit I crave
Give me more!
exhale
waves crash upon my heart
Ahura Mazda!
Fire lit
Athena’s gaze!
fuels the fire
Sherazade appears!
This is dramatic
recede in silence
exhale
The ocean a dance
she enchants
seduction’s envy
a spirit samba
a lover’s game
Fana and Baqa
a yearning
to intrude
to be drawn in
eternally
to immerse as ONE
inhale
I anticipate  the shore
every wave
pursuing TOUCH
revive me
seeking the ocean’s GAZE
to cast a glance
grace me at once
hold this hand
and retreat
back into thee with thee
exhale
Moon glares intensely
observing the mortal and Divine shadow dance
This silhouette transfixed upon the glorious orb
lovers beneath behold in adoration
this art divine
man and HU
Hu Man
Dissolve
inhale
