Just Penned – A plea to Rumi!


As a book by my bedside
Awake with the secrets of love
Thy ark folded in pages
Bound hard with silence above

Gazing through thought so dark
There atop the planet of love
You came in view dear Rumi
Only as words and nothing above

With the very words of you
Heart is set in swirl
This tryst, I sing on you
Pour me more
With the light of Thy love

Befriend me breaking the puzzle
With you, heart will dare a muzzle
Pierce every fibre of my flesh
With the wine of holy Shams of Tabrez

Break my trait strands
Make it straight in Thy hands
To be consumed by Thy love perennial
To be something of your kind at least!
