When you see this, post your favorite poem.

From The Mathnawi, book III:

If you pretend to be Hallaj,
And with that fake burning
Set fire to your friends,
Don’t think that you’re a lover.

You’re crazy and numb,
You’re drinking our blood,
And you have no experience
Of the nearness.

Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (1207 – 1273)
