JH Sayyar's Sonnets

149
Nice looking faces O my God deceive,
The foolish with the coated face beauty,
Wise men reject it the churlish receive,
As on earth blessing ignoring his duty
Always love those who like you most,
Reject at once, to whom you admire,
They always in kiss fire your life roast,
And do leave you in the lurking mire.
Love teaches this, love your being,
Make your being immortal like soul,
Body going to dust as we are seeing,
Heart wishes turn you soon into coal.

A single hair traps the mighty heart,
As a hole catches on the road a cart
