to engrave your heart
to engrave your heart
This constant unveiling of shadow and light
We drifted to a point where we forgot our connection
as sudden strangers we lied about longing
banished and broken
obstructing our Oneness
We merged to a point where we remembered our connection
dependent on a single dot
the dot of illumination
Jeem from Ba
veil upon veil
dissolved in the ocean of Unity
beneath the Ark of Salvation
merging of two oceans
eyes two seas
as one inner eye
I envy your
to the dot
perceived by two dots
Jonah hidden in the Ba
to that what your dot glances
necessary to fill
dots connecting dots
we are dots within the dot
I shall sit by your door
Like an unworthy beggar
I shall remain at your doorstep
Forever and ever
I shall wait till your doors open
I promise to remain silent
I shall utter not a word or gesture
I shall diffuse in your presence
I am in Love!
And you are the cause!
My only desire?
A glimpse of your face
I swear this love is Divine
Must I admit and proclaim to all;
this love I speak of is earthly.
A River Named Love
There is a river named Love
Upon its banks lovers reside
S e p a r a t e d and United by Love
All in love.
Desiring union they yearn daily
This river is food and drink
Their Fountain of Eternal Life
Lovers must unite!
‘How shall we reach our beloved’s gate?’
Frantic and mad they wail in haste:
“This mighty river has split one heart!”
Recalling Khidr’s auspicious advice;
‘One must take the leading plunge…’
‘The other shall mirror in unison’
‘Never again to depart’
‘Never again to say good bye’
Together in this river they delight.
United at last
Shackled by chains
Drifted by vicious currents
Into the Eternal Ocean of Love
Swim together upon the waves
Drink together the eternal drink
Drown together in eternal Love
Live together in eternal Light.
Anxiety; My Hidden State
Anxiety has become my hidden state
Come feel my heart..It beats ecstatically
Like a blitz you’ve swirled and tossed me into Arcadia
Drenched me with wine
Into the Ocean of Eternia
Like Shems, are you too part of this conspiracy?
An unbearable feat for ME!
Test me not for I know not how
to bear this departure graciously
Through you I found ME
A well devised plot or mockery?
I wonder with anxiety
If I’m the one to pity
You’ve abandoned me to fend solely in this vicious labyrinth
Wherein donkey’s bray and snakes contrive
Where dead souls copulate, graze and reside
I seek that Eden we flew to and fro each day
Where I know you patiently await from this very day!
Fly Away With Me
I knocked and knocked
At the peak of my dismay
Shall I fly to prove my delight?
Watch me tonight, past midnight
Way up in the night sky
I shall be seen
Above your abode
My hand stretched out
You shall join me
We’ll fly away
To our usual place
The place we met
The place we’ll dwell
Our place of origin
