Broken Heart


I have loved
And loved with all my might
A might whose power
Crushed my heart to
Smithereens!

Of the myriad pieces
One neither pricked nor pained
When asked for its lifelessness
It said that it was a piece
Where love dwelt!

Of the myriad pieces
One throbbed in blood
When asked for its liveliness
It said that it was a piece
Where God dwells!

When it crumbled
Soul shuddered
When asked for its quake
It said that it quivered
For its hearth was shattered!


When the soul shuddered
The sky went asunder
When asked for its thunder
It said –A slave of God
Ruined his pledge with Him!

    a nice mix of spirituality with an ample earthy dose
    steeped in the eastern traditions of sufistic verse

    some lines resonate deep in the romantic sufi culture

    nice

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
