Me & my beloved ,we are sweethearts. We long for each other.
His heart appears to me a prisoner of substance, standing like a slave before his wealth, robbed of the beauty of life. A victim of man made earthly laws ,a lost human heart imprissioned in man’s skeleton tied with chains of earthly desires.
As my beloved is enticed by substance, in this beautiful world created by God ,anything that awakens my love & desire is a disgrace. Everything of goodness that my heart crave is unconsiderable according to man made conceptions.
Substance is our cruel enemy, who brings us misery. She watches over us like a guard & follow us wherever we go.
I sing for my beloved the song of wisdom, he doesn’t listen for substance has concealed his ears with quaking sound of metal riches.
I call for him to sing like a bird ,soar freely here n’ there in the fields and enjoy the bounty of life. But I found him as a beast that’s burdened so heavily with gold that’s breaking his back. He’s a slave to fickle wealth and purchased friends.
When the silence rules & nature sleeps at the twilight ,I call him but the fear of tomorrow overshadow his thoughts of love. So he responds not. He’s amused with shimmering objects that blinded his eyes and heart to life’s secrets. His soul is diverted to a temporary self-gratification.
Substantial things deadens a man without suffering, love awakens him with cheerful pains.
He craves for me & calls me from among the heaps of his riches of gold & silver and of ivory & ebony. But he’ll only find me in the house of simplicity , built by God, in the city of affection. For his huge building is a narrow cell for me , n’ I can’t worship material things for that’s not what I seek on earth n’ not what fills my heart
I want to reach my beloved like a ray of sun tearing apart the dark clouds of excessiveness & greed. I want to belong to him. & I want him to belong to me.
