I read this book called "40 rules of love" by Elfi Shafak and have been heavenly taken aback by the Sufi Saint and his 40 rules of love. Therefore, here are a few lines dedicated to him for a couple of us who love reading about eternal love...

 

Like the river of love,left unfed

That made me a hostage to but myself

In the world of thoughts I led into…

Broken I was until it was you

I saw God full of love and compassion,

As you said, made my heart my guide…

Looked for him, in the heart of a true lover,

True lover, Shams was that heart mine..?

My intellect tied me into knots, but love dissolved it all..

The jittery talks and rubbles of fear…

I thought my loneliness and solitude were but alike

But the true language of love as you know is obsolete..

The true joy of being left aside..East, west, south or north

The factual journey lies within..

A midwife knows that without pain, the baby cannot be delivered

Finely, love can be perfected only in pain

In search of heaven, I flew oceans afar

But paradise is here, Shams

Right within my heart

Then where was hell, Shams

Until you revealed the truth

In the here and now

Shams, you said don’t judge

I am trying, till death blows me apart

My soul from this worldly fanaticism, will then depart

Eternity is not infinite time,

But simply timelessness..

I am trying to drink these rules Shams,

Hope time will be mine

The principle of reciprocity

I’ve always done good Shams

But why do I expect returns

I then reread your words louder

And conclude God ‘the biggest plotter’

Your verses I still recall

Love has no labels, no definitions, it is what it is, pure and simple

The water of life and the soul of fire..

Your words changed my thinking Shams

To you I owe an eternity

My life lost and found, it is

In the world I grazed, without cause

To opine on a reason although not mine

It was you who made thyself realize how futile

An Armour shall all this be unto me Shams

Every while a situation arose

Those words embedded deep inside my heart

Retorted simply like your words composed

I close my eyes and hark back on your view

And question myself, Shams that was you?
