Misbah loves writing poetry. She says poetry is what makes her heart feels warm and light.
The poem is centered on two completely imaginary characters, Roz and Hitler. In the poem, I tried to portray a love relationship between two people who are unable to be physically together due to societal norms, religious and cultural differences, or anything else; it is an imaginary gap in the poem that readers may fill in with their own imagination. I hope everyone who reads it enjoys it.
The Flames of Mystical Love
She loves him as a mystic loves God,
Love, the glorious light that illuminates the world.
By loving him she came to know her true self,
Nourished by the deeper meaning of her existence.
The flames of mystical love are burning.
This eliminates any feeling of a separate self.
'I burnt, and burnt, and burnt,' Rumi remarked.
This mysterious road leads her to the heart's core.
Where this mystery of love takes place
Mystics are poets who are drawn towards love.
A sense of oneness of love Itself
There remains no more 'you' and 'me'.
Those who were two at first,
Love's pain makes them one.
This is the story of Roz's mystical love for Hitler.
When you turn into me and I evolve into you,
When awareness of myself in you and you in me awoke
Love, like a magical one, sings songs,
Silence gives melody of violins.
The dance of love that never ends
Far or near he will be close forever,
There's no physical appearance,
She can still sense his presence.
Love like this touches the heights of the mountains.
The world is blind to their love and will never know it.
This is Roz's love for Hitler.
They may be far apart, but love would never end.
Love exists in both the heart and the soul.
It's not important to love something visible only,
Do we not love God, even if we cannot see Him? — but when it comes to human love,
Why do we require a physical appearance in order to love?
If it is based on worldly things and pleasures, it will fail.
Love like Roz's and Hitler's is difficult to grasp.
They can't meet as it is not in their fate.
The laws of society made their ankles chained.
Love don't know any set of boundaries,
They exist in each other's souls and hearts.
Love is not bound by any rules or restrictions
Yes, this is true that true love hardly finds its destination
But why, therefore, ignore the world hereafter?
All lovers like Romeo Juliet may have met up there
This world is unkind to soul lovers.
The soul that comes from God will return there.
Then let souls' love remain forever.
“Love is the most universal, the most tremendous, and the most mystical of cosmic forces. Love is the primal and universal psychic energy. Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.”
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardi
