Just Penned!! – The Drenched Fakir

O greedy masses!
Behold not a fakir as poor
Ye shall not see
The bounty the heart awaits

Neither the scents of the heavens
Have lured them
Nor the horror of the hells
Have frightened them

The Beloved is dear to the bosom
The fakir is drenched in His love, awesome!
The earth’s puddle hath not the water
That quenches the heart’s quarter

The heart that mills love
Milks love for the Beloved
The heart lays soaked in love
For the Beloved to drink it whole

The zikr of the Beloved
Hath wiped all the sorrows
The heart hath felled the Cupid
And all his lustful arrows

The world is poor to see
The fakir’s heart and its glee
The world is poor to see
And throws pennies wee

For the bounty that the heart awaits
The eyes are ignorant of the world
The ears are ignorant of the noise
Of the pennies thrown with pride

The cloak of the fakir is torn
The face is bereaved, lovelorn
The heart mourns its existence
Awaits the Beloved’s presence

O greedy masses!
Behold not a fakir as poor
Ye shall not see
The bounty the heart awaits
