GHALIB : Fire of love

romeo_and_juliet_brown

dil miraa soz-e nihaa;N se be-mu;haabaa jal gayaa
aatish-e ;xaamosh ke maanind goyaa jal gayaa

Meaning:  My heart, with hidden flame, unceremoniously burned  {speaking / ‘so to speak’} like {‘silent fire’ / glowing coals}, it burned .

Source: Divan-e-Galib. Highly recommended.
