Grief Iii - Poem by Aftab Alam

When love peeps out of the garment
Lust breaks the wall in joyous ferment
Then the soul cries and the body dies
O tears tell me, what size is your size

    that material love
    and we rush
    to the lust
    make the life illusion
    what the size is the questioning that love where he is heading and what the goal - illusion bravo
