MYSTICAL POEMS: “This bleeding separation” by Abu-Said Abil-Kheir


“This bleeding separation”

In the school of mind you

learn a lot, and become

a true scholar for many to look up to.

In the school of Love, you become

a child to learn again.


A pious one with a hundred beads on your rosary,

or a drunkard in a tavern,

any gift you bring the Beloved will be accepted

as long as you come in longing.

It is this most secret pain,

this bleeding separation,

which will guide you to your Heart of Hearts.


If you do not give up the crowds

you won’t find your way to Oneness.

If you do not drop your self

you won’t find your true worth.

If you do not offer all you

have to the Beloved,

you will live this life free of that

pain which makes it worth living.

~ Abu-Said Abil-Kheir
