Wings of desire – Rum

People are distracted by objects of desire,
and afterward repent of the lust they’ve indulged, because they have indulged with a phantom and are left even farther from Reality than before.
Your desire for the illusory could be a wing, by means of which a seeker might ascend to reality.
When you have indulged a lust, your wings drops off; you become lame, abandoned by a fantasy.
Preserve the wing and don’t indulge such lust, so that the wing of desire May bear you to Paradise.
People fancy they are enjoying themselves, but they are really tearing out their wings for the sake of an illusion.
