Thy benevolent skin across the earth of despair looms
Mine "up-turned wondering eyes", the sun and the moon [0]
Grows upon this fertile darkness orchards
Blooming with crystalberries abound
Each devoured by the eyes of my pen
That I might cry a word for a verse
For my pen may live another day
And my love for You, shall last forever [1]
Punish me not that I am only a saddened Persian
In love with darkness and the Light of the universe [2]

[0] Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet
[1] 'You' is the Creator
[2] Darkness is the black skin and Light of the universe is Allah , Koran 24:35
