Urdu poets have always expressed their love, either for god or a person, by longing for attention and affection.

Be it Jigar Moradabadi's 'Ye Ishq nahi asaan... ek aag ka dariya hai aur doob ke jaana hai', or Mir's 'Ishq ek 'Mir' bhaari pathhar hai..', there are many metaphors given to 'love' in Urdu poetry.
