Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib

M
Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib
“No, I wasn’t meant to love and be loved”
No, I wasn’t meant to love and be loved.
If I’d lived longer, I would have waited longer.

Knowing you are faithless keeps me alive and hungry.
Knowing you faithful would kill me with joy.

Delicate are you, and your vows are delicate, too,
so easily do they break.

You are a laconic marksman. You leave me
not dead but perpetually dying.
