If King Jamshid’s diamond cup breaks, that’s it

One can sigh, but a lifetime is needed to finish it

When the Great One gestures to me

For tomorrow’s sake, don’t skimp with me on the wine today

I am confused: should I cry over my heart, or slap my chest?

She has a habit of torture, but doesn't mean to end the love

For my weak heart this living in the sorrow house

Religious people are always praising the Garden of Paradise

Only a few faces show up as roses

I agree that I’m in a cage, and I’m crying

Each time I open my mouth, the Great One says

My heart is becoming restless again
