The Heat Is In The Fire

Home/Posts/Ilahis, Poems/The Heat Is In The Fire

Allah Hu Akbar

The heat is in the fire.
It’s not just from the stove.
Some live for desire,
and some are in love with Love.
The Secret is an ocean
hidden in a lover’s tear.
Love is not an end to pain.
It’s said, “Thou shalt not fear.”

Remembrance is a quality
That can’t be called your own.
A dervish is a doorway.
A seeker needs no throne.
A way exists in every heart
to Mecca and Jerusalem.
You who’ve wandered far away,
come find your home again.

The heat is in the fire.
It’s not just from the stove.
Some live for desire,
and some are in love with Love.
The Secret is an ocean
hidden in a lover’s tear.
Love is not an end to pain.
It’s said, “Thou shalt not fear.”

Love is not an end to pain.
It’s said, “Thou shalt not fear.”
