Burning Of Cloths (Sufi Poem)

Rating: 5.0

Once I saw
My three doors away neighbour
To set his cloths on fire

The cloths were beautiful
And costly

He bought them all
Recently

In them he fitted well
And looked smart, too

Till date
He kept secret from all
The cause behind his drastic act

But today
He accidentally reveals to me

That he was threatened
To leave alone

If he loves any one
Except whom he promised

but he was falling in love
With his fancy dresses
