I had to read Amir Khusrau’s poetry for my Great Books class and I came across these lines in one of the poems and I fell in love.
“You always tell me, ‘My elixir
is sweet.’ If you ask Khusrau, darling,
he’ll tell you that it’s poison, too.”
Also, if it’s not obvious enough, I LOVE spoken word poetry. And while I can never pick a favorite poem, I really like this one so here you go!
