The Lovers~ Imprisoned Indefinitely

Misbah enjoys writing poetry and loves to convey the messages of Love through her poems.

The brightness of your face

Illuminates the shadow of time.

The unconscious space becomes conscious.

And the dust begins to form.

A circular shape,

Like a tree without branches.

We come from nothing.

And we wake up in the shadows.

The reflections of our conscience are diffuse.

In blackish lumps.

We're two, we're two.

But alone.

We've arrived in the desert.

Before the planet is flooded.

The wind blows,

Everything will be born in a huge cog movement.

The desert will become green.

While the spores of life

Will be scattered silently.

Everything is born with feelings.

The grass that forms the meadow

This rule is unbreakable.


The roots are safe.

The garden will soon be ready.

A new tree will grow.

Juicy fruits.

There will be two suns in the sky.

I'll take your hand in mine.


The wheel has turned.

The hives are overflowing with fragrant honey.

And the roots have grown into

Hold us captive indefinitely.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.

— Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi
