This ghazal describes the feelings of a lover, who is
missing his beloved. He questions himself for
remembering her, and believes to be better of without
her thoughts. He mentions losing his mind over her and
recognizes isolation and depression usual as his
comfort space. The lover tends to remember an insane
lover from his childhood, whom he once threw a rock at,
and believes himself to be that insane love.
