Hallaj and Hussain

remember lovers

claim not love

if pain

is more dear than love

to qualify as an ashiq

one must be husaain

to be a husaaini

you’ll be tested

ruined royally

with your all

and every spec

will be inspected

weighed on scales

many rejected

filtered and sifted

purified and uplifted

until this love is


only then you’ll be slain

joining the ranks of

hallaj and husaain
