For Every Love Claimant

love is beyond jealous

of every love claimant

I warn every Ashiq & Mashuq

keep your love silent

as love is jealously listening

she banishes all suspects

to the heartless desert

into cellars unknown

into bottomless wells

keep your most prized love secret

reveal not I revealed this

I pray she was asleep

while I scripted this secret

burn this letter after your eyes

drink every letter

engrave this secret upon thy heart

and keep it a secret forever untold

between you and Laila
