The Abysmal Depths of Love

Misbah has always wanted to pursue writing as a career. She loves to do poetry in her free time. She loves to write on different topics...

Depths of Love

The one who has traveled the abysmal depths of love,

In turn, devoured by thirst

Or drinking from the source,

Cross the aridity without damage

Or the rich blooms.

The flow of the seasons

Don't touch her

Deep in the abyss of absence

As on the peaks of union,

Her heart remains serene

And such as in itself

You who love do not be broken

To have such pain: soon the flowering will come;

You will be given to brave the storms

And to accost the lush beaches

Where the Magnet is forever united with the beloved:

This is the promise for you, faithful souls.

Every valiant soul throws itself

To the depths of love

Whose depths no one probes;

But a long deprivation eats away at her strength,

So that it only heals slowly.

While she thinks she is full of experience

Love, more than ever

Becomes unknown,

Longing burns

and tears her apart
