Now There Is Solitude! - Poem by Aarzoo Mehek

Treading on a path of gratitude
Filling my heart with a lot of solitude
Giving up on all desires of the heart
To my life I give a brand new start
O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
Now there is solitude

I've forsaken this material world
And have forsaken the reward of the hereafter
I've forsaken this entire universe for the love of YOU
O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
Now there is solitude

I've lost all the awareness of myself
Pangs of my beloved has engulfed my senses
Now it's only YOU in every pore of my heart
O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
Now there is solitude

Worldly desires has snatched the peace of my mind
Emotions has crippled me and corroded my heart
Come n release me from this empty vacuum called world
O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
Now there is solitude

My heart yearns for the unfulfilled days and night
Its seeks the solace of that healing touch
Won't you come and light up my hearth?
O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
Now there is solitude

    ah.. a wonderful and lofty Sufi hymn
    That's how i felt at the very first reading. The renunciation of anything and everything against the absolute, and a total submission, a serene soul's perennial pursuit, the enticing realization at the glimmering distance, but the complex chains of pains and passions all over the SELF! At this utmost bafflement is the untamed inner urge broke off all the shackles, chains and manacles, causing the cosmic vacuum within the soul, where there is this solitude is set again, as the earth got birth by the Bang Big! .. ah! ... its been raining since ages, and the dua is over, and let us hope the solitude absolute is filled with the blessed presence of the Benign Lord, amin. Alhamduliallah. (excuse me, if repeated, please delete the rest) seems something wrong. (Report) Reply

    'O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
    Now there is solitude'

    One of the finest aspect of this poem, for me, is the refrain that you used in all the stanzas of the poem..

    I am an atheist, but I have a little idea of theology as I read it for my passion for philosophy.. If I am not very wrong then the love for truth - Allah - is called Ishq-e-haqeeqi.. It is, if my memory does not betray me, the final and the purest form of love described in Islamic philosophy.. For me, your poem is about this ultimate form of love - when the human falls in love with God - a Hinduism it is seen in Radha's love for Khrishna..

    A philosophically enriched, poem with purity of heart that even moved an atheist like me.. That is perhaps is the strength of poetry.. Brilliant! !

    O Allah! come and reside in my heart,
    Now there is solitude
    Tum mere pas hote ho goya Jab koi doosra nahin hota (Hakeem Momin Khan Momomin)
    A beautiful poem nicely penned.
