He left Agra for Delhi a few years after his father's death, to finish his education and also to find patrons who offered him financial support Mir's many patrons and his relationship with them have been described by his translator C.
Some scholars consider two of Mir's masnavis long narrative poems rhymed in couplets , Mu'amlat-e-ishq The Stages of Love and Khwab o khyal-e Mir "Mir's Vision" , written in the first person, as inspired by Mir's own early love affairs,  but it is by no means clear how autobiographical these accounts of a poet's passionate love affair and descent into madness are.
Especially, as Frances W. Pritchett points out, the austere portrait of Mir from these masnavis must be juxtaposed against the picture drawn by Andalib Shadani, whose inquiry suggests a very different poet, given to unabashed eroticism in his verse.
Mir lived much of his life in Mughal Delhi. Kuchha Chelan , in Old Delhi was his address at that time. However, after Ahmad Shah Abdali 's sack of Delhi each year starting , he eventually moved to the court of Asaf-ud-Daulah in Lucknow , at the king's invitation. Distressed to witness the plundering of his beloved Delhi, he gave vent to his feelings through some of his couplets.
Mir migrated to Lucknow in and remained there for the remainder of his life. Though he was given a kind welcome by Asaf-ud-Daulah, he found that he was considered old-fashioned by the courtiers of Lucknow Mir, in turn, was contemptuous of the new Lucknow poetry, dismissing the poet Jur'at's work as merely 'kissing and cuddling'. Mir's relationships with his patron gradually grew strained, and he eventually severed his connections with the court. In his last years Mir was very isolated.
His health failed, and the untimely deaths of his daughter, son and wife caused him great distress. He died of a purgative overdose on Friday, 21 September His complete works, Kulliaat , consist of six Diwans containing 13, couplets, comprising all kinds of poetic forms: Mir lived at a time when Urdu language and poetry was at a formative stage — and Mir's instinctive aesthetic sense helped him strike a balance between the indigenous expression and new enrichment coming in from Persian imagery and idiom, to constitute the new elite language known as Rekhta or Hindui.
Basing his language on his native Hindustani, he leavened it with a sprinkling of Persian diction and phraseology, and created a poetic language at once simple, natural and elegant, which was to guide generations of future poets. The death of his family members,  together with earlier setbacks including the traumatic stages in Delhi , lend a strong pathos to much of Mir's writing — and indeed Mir is noted for his poetry of pathos and melancholy.
Mir's famous contemporary, also an Urdu poet of no inconsiderable repute, was Mirza Rafi Sauda. Lovers of Urdu poetry often debate Mir's supremacy over Ghalib or vice versa. It may be noted that Ghalib himself acknowledged, through some of his couplets, that Mir was indeed a genius who deserved respect.
Here are two couplets by Mirza Ghalib on this matter. You are not the only master of Rekhta , Ghalib They say there used to be a Mir in the past. Ghalib apna yeh aqeeda hai baqaul-e-Nasikh Aap bey behrah hai jo muataqid-e-Mir nahi. It's my belief in the words of Nasikh  He that vows not on Mir, is himself unlearned!
Ghalib and Zauq were contemporary rivals but both of them believed the superiority of Mir and also acknowledged Mir's superiority in their poetry. Hasti apni habab ki si hai Yeh numaish ik saraab ki si hai. Dikhaai diye yun ki bekhud kiya Hamein aap se bhi juda kar chale. She appeared in such a way that I lost myself And went by taking away my 'self' with her Just her glimpse rendered me numb away she went leaving me separated from me. At a higher spiritual level, the subject of Mir's poem is not a woman but God.
Mir speaks of man's interaction with the Divine. He reflects upon the impact on man when God reveals Himself to the man. Dikhaai diye yun ke bekhud kiya Hamen aap se bhi juda kar chale. Gor kis dil jale ki hai ye falak Shola ek subh yaan se uthta hai.
Ashk aankhon mein kab nahi aata Lahu aata hai jab nahi aata. Bekhudi le gai kahaan humko Der se intezaar hai apna. Ibtidaa-e-ishq hai rotaa hai kyaa Aage aage dekhiye hotaa hai kyaa. Likhte ruqaa, likhe gaye daftar Shauq ne baat kyaa barhaai hai. Deedani hai shikastagi dil ki Kya imaarat ghamon ne dhaai hai. Baad marne ke meri qabr pe aaya wo 'Mir' Yaad aai mere Isa ko dawa mere baad.
Mir ke deen-o-mazhab ka poonchte kya ho un nay to kashka khaincha dair mein baitha kab ka tark Islam kiya. What can I tell you about Mir's faith or belief? A tilak on his forehead in a temple he resides, having abandoned Islam long ago . What Mir was practising was probably the Malamati or "Blameworthy" aspect of the Sufi tradition.
