Two Loves - Poem by Naveed Akram

I have loved you with two loves -
A selfish love and one of the other loves.
As for the love which is selfish,
Therein you must accomplish
To the lusts and desires of reunion,
The days of resurrected being
Are of the nights of this great plane,
The plane of indulgence and death.
I have in the other love a worst crime,
The worthiest of all crimes resides imbedded.
May this tiny hole in hearts be collated
With other holes in volumes of sages.
Knowledge of the godly love is rudely
Interrupted by the souls which conjecture.
