Go

Fine.
Not new in my vocabulary or experience
Common rather through observation and experience
Discard at will and doubt the sincere
Typical. But you, I never saw as typical
Different rather
How about a hiatus between us two until you discover your own true self
Go, go seek out your loyal friends and guides
I have no doubt they love you and care for you
Indeed you shall find all that you seek with your sincere select dosts
I transient, a spare wheel rather
This is common and you rather have simply confirmed once again a greater truth
I shall not waste your time or energy
Nor send you texts or otherwise anything part of me
Nor keep you up and disrupt your schedule and distract you with your higher learning, your studies or thoughts
Weaning may not be sudden, so randomness may arrive in your mail or messages
Discard at will, as you choose to discard her at will
Once you discover you, only then will you truly know me
Likewise the same applies to me
As per your request, i shall abide
The choice is yours. Respectfully

Inseparable Shadow

Inseperable Shadow

A lonely traveler strolled along a shaded pathway
Suddenly thunder shattered the starry sky
Lightning struck her instantly
Fatally she gasped for air
Currents of electric waves charged her soul
Spirit revived
An angelic presence
A second life
It was you!
Another Me?
Indescribable transparency
The moment of awakening
Alighted at last
Fire lit
Love’s delight
A shaded path with no road signs
Tragic disappearance
You came and left without notice
Alone again upon this path
Despair not
Your inseparable shadow;
My eternal companion
In you is me, and me in you!

Not Two but One

Not Two but One

Rumi drank
Shems drank
Both began to whirl
gradual and steady
speed altered
Spinning until all that existed vanished
Rumi and Shems spun in ecstasy
Drunk in love
The sema carried on the night through
Dawn exposed their frantic state
Both fused
Now only one
One body
One soul
One heart
Not two but ONE

Cellular Love

Cellular Love

Your voice resonates through every cell in my body.
Your being has fused completely with mine.
I seek to know who you are, yet only to find in reality ME!
We speak and chat all day long, I call upon you from miles away, instantly you arrive
Is this magic, have I gone mad?
Am I drunk in hallucinations and wild imagery?
No, we both are funnels to the same source
leading to the Jar of The Divine.

 

Every Great One Had a Friend

Every Great One Had a Friend

On that day I said goodbye…
I had a feeling it was our last
Yet dared not go there in mind or heart
A friend, a mentor and sister too?
All this was so real and too good to be true
I’ve never felt such a way with others who came and ran away
Now you too have turned the other way
A wish to renew this special bond
In hope I search for His magic wand!

Every great one had a friend
From Prophets to all heavenly men
My claim is such was You to me
Yet whispers tell you ‘This is mere fantasy!’
Ya Shems, Ya Rumi, Ya Shems Ya Rumi

You’ve moved on yet I still wait
To meet at least, sip and greet;
at our well known secret retreat
I hold back my emotions with anchored reigns
To all those who cross my path and claim love with bloody stains
In them I secretly search to see your reflection
Nowhere close, their faces-a pure deception!
A thousand places or even faces
None like you in a million places
You’ve disappeared and left no traces

To give my heart and then depart
Oh the pain, the pain the pain!
My heart numb and clothes with stain
Ya Hussain, Ya Hussain, Ya Hussain

In this world where love is seasonal
Selfish, insincere and fiercely regional
How is it possible to believe me who claims she loves this very mortal?
To you I shall proclaim; that I am from Hussain
A loyalist who loves and dies in pain- for the same!
Deny it, turn the other way, ignore it and call it game

Fling me away like an unwanted moth that grows not tired or has no shame
I’ll come again to knock and knock at your heart, in hope to reclaim this very pain
I await that blessed Day where those who loved for His sake
For light’s sake, for Truth’s sake…
Shall reunite and be with those they were forced to forsake
For on that Day, true friends know not the term “Sorry Hun, this was all a mistake.”

Mirrors

Friends of the Way
I found you along the way
We’ve shared and discussed our heart’s dismay
Through your company bolted doors were made ajar
As Zulaikha’s passion, as Shirazi or Attar

A version of white sorcery
Your silence in friendship was surely no trickery!
As I burnish and rays strengthen
The lotus in you begins to open
Our bond increases
You begin to share, to unveil
The Secret Stare
You turn and begin to burn- while I glare
We take turns to burn
Is it an irony that we feel the same?
No! Surely this is truly a lovers’ game

In a shower of gentle raindrops
We dance in puddles of reflection
Surrounded by His mysterious protection
Unaware of who is who
Master-Student
Student-Master
Loved- Beloved
Beloved- Loved

Gaze down now to view the reflection
A peek at the height of love’s perfection
I see Me
You see You
We see Him
How could this be?
As in reality we only see ONE imagery!
We’ve unlocked the key to our own Mystery
Our Unity
The Truth WE see
Not Blasphemy.
