the lover gone crazy is a pathetic sight:
everyone is embarrassed by a majnun’s plight.
the madness of such overwhelming love is rare;
sober society can only stand and stare.
the one seized by love becomes a local event;
however, the lover remains indifferent!
the lover gone majzoob is a special instance;
only in the east does one drown in divine bliss!
this happens most often in holy india;
such intense exalted love is not trivia!
it is said, majnun loved layla with such a will,
his head came to rest on the perfect master’s sill!
look, if you think darvish is spinning a story-
you have no idea about god’s own glory!
