Sin Became the Deed

Let’s play all day and all night
No sleep no slumber
Just play
Let us meet there every moment
Ecstatic we rejoice
in the name of Love
Where no separation exists
This field where souls subsist
We are there now
Close your eyes
so that I may play in your laughter

Forbidden love percieved as sin

Sin became the deed
Deed became worship
Worshipping love brought us home
From Love we come and to Love we return
Cycle complete
This field desires wild and erratic spirits
Naked truths
Transparent souls
Those who lay prey to all beasts
I wish to lay bare in this field
Every lover a delight to every lover
Select one for one
Let’s gaze in sun and shade
Devoured by love
Victims of love
Come tear my heart apart
Come dissect me
This heart engraved by the Ashiq’s art
You the artist
Lie down
Take my heart
And do your magic
Ishq is Fire
Fire is Ishq
I love you as fire loves fire
Fire loves itself
And burns through itself
I burn in you
We burn in we
A lover said,
I crave to hear you speak
While I listen motionless
Engaging in your words
Voice duffuses into my being
Words disappear
Music remains
Your voice heavenly
Making love to your lyrics
Subtly with passion
As you pour yourself
into my goblet
I drink you
The laugh that delights both sun and moon…
the laugh that calms raging waters
Urge to hear your laugh
The one that comes straight from the depth
your luminous heart

Mountains of Makkah

Immovable Mountains of Makkah
Pegged into the sacred soil of Madina
In the Presence of the only Mustafa
The Beloved of the Most High
We stand before the blessed dome seeking his grace and light
Ya Mustafa Ya Mujtaba

Loyal Lover

The moth is a loyal lover

her gaze is fixated on the flame
she yearns for the flame
her heart burns for the flame
she seeks no other reflections which add fuel to her desire for the flame
she is a loyal lover
she desires the flame
it’s light, Nur and warmth
the flame is love
the flame is source
her gaze fixed
her heart’s qibla: the flame
she is a monotheist
a monogomist
a devoted Ashiq
she desires to merge with the flame
and only the flame
everything beyond the flame, a veil
the flame only wants a devoted lover
not a wanderer
when I merge with the flame
I only visualise the flame
her gaze
her voice
her words
her breath
her sweetness
her everything
her touch
her whisper
her laughter
her smile
I only desire her
I seek not any stimulants
she is the stimulant
she is the arousal
she excites my spirt
why would I look elsewhere?
she is the wine
my gaze fixed
my heart on her
I want her
she is the flame
she alights my heart
she is the fire
pulsating within
spirit in spirit
seeking none but her
merge with me

Disciple of Hallaj

Are you a dream

or a mirage?

Are you Haqq
disciple of Hallaj?
Are you the wind from Madina
the sir of St. Catherine?
You, breath of the Beloved
I seek to know
what brings us here
When Oceans meet
when clouds clear
Both sun and moon
naked truths
I seek your light
grace me



There is this someone I adore with all my soul
She has the ability to set me on fire
She is fire
creating an inner turbulence
I  wish to know who she is
I see her gaze
I seek her
This feeling is surreal
This love is real

Seeds of Doubt

Once the seeds of doubt enter the heart scape

No amount of love is sufficient
Doubt waters the seeds of doubt
Tarnishing the metallic beam of love
After all that was exchanged
That one glance of doubt
Is all it took
To shatter it all
Ego breaks the heart
Heart breaks not the ego
This heart now in abyss
Wonders at its crime
Love she accuses
If pure love fails to be grasped
Then may every idol within shatter
May the idols of doubt be broken
For doubt polluted my beloved’s heart
Casting doubt
Creating a distance unlike ever
Premonition of devastation
To satisfy the doubful self
The mirror who loved unconditionally
Is forced to leave this divaan
As spots blemish the mirror
Marks of doubt
Unable to see, feel or recieve love
As once before
That purity I reminisce
Of the mirror which beheld pure reflection
Doubt free
pure heart
Doubt free
Who glanced with the gaze of ishq
Beheld through a the inner eye
Heart rules over mind
Doubt reverses this equation
The heart tainted with whispers
Conspiring doubts about the gazer
Gazer dismayed
Seeking the moonlight
Beholding the moonlight
So not to forget
The cherished purity
Ruined by doubt
Was this too real to grasp
I am not as your previous
I am not like your past
I am the future
I am the now;
The present your heart sought
My heart unmatched
Nor understood
As long as doubt remains
This journey continues to seek the moon
Two oceans brought to merge
So to reflect the moon’s beautiful glory
To embrace and spread light
Impossible to carry on where doubt pollutes us
We sought We
Doubt broke me
Doubt stung me
Pierced me
In silence I retreat
With no expectation
I’m not the friend who betrayed you
The guide who deceived you
The mentor who broke you
The Trustee who exposed you
Used you
Enslaved you
The kin who stabbed you
The womb who disowned you
The heartless bystander
The silent skeptic
All teachers of Love
I am a lover
Unlike EVER
I am you
You doubt you!
Who are we?
We are we
Betray not thee
For I am you
You me
Feel me
Through heart
Know me
Through heart
I you
You me
Reject yourself through yourself
Betray yourself through doubt
Cry not
The mirror broken
I wish to stay
But not where doubt remains guest
Doubt is oil to water
I pure water
Doubt’s envy
Her sworn enemy
Choose me or choose doubt
Choose you
be free
My love
Be wise
Not foolish
Broken mirror
Break not further
Sleepless reckless
That moon could betray this way
Cool waters I seek in my moon confidante
To heal this pain
Through light
Through gaze
