Do Not Tease Me

Ehsan Sehgal

I am the richest
In love
And faithfulness
Do not tease me
I am Sufi ascetic
Reality of ego
Is not for sale
Nor the tongue of faith
I am the door
Of sincerity and civility
Do not tease me
I am Sufi ascetic
What is the worship
If committing the sins
What is the hypocrisy
In the romance
How is grief
And how is life
Why the friendship
With the objects
Of this world
I was very proud
Of my pride
That ruined me
Come to me
Through my ways
I dwell within your breath
I am reality of reality
Do not tease me
I am Sufi ascetic.
