Smiling Moon

Eid

Gazing heavenwards
Searching the night sky in anticipation
I am greeted by her silver smile.
She weakly whispers
“Eid Mubarak to all”
Purified,
Rejuvenated, and
Spiritually charged,
We begin our journey afresh
For another year
Hoping to see Ramadan one more time.

Humbled

Humbled
I lay
Waiting to heal
And all I can do
Is think of you.

Immobilized
I lay
Glued to this bed
I keep remembering
Your last caress.

Alone
I lay
Miserably sad
With only my
Memories for company.

Scared
I lay
Hiding under sheets
Not knowing
When i’ll see you again.

Religiously
I lay
Awake in this bed
Begging for forgiveness
Repenting my sins.

I am humbled
My humility is killing me
Dont let me go out this way…

Heat

I have banished the cold
For it was wicked,
And truth be told
It was decrepit.
I am heat,
I am bold,
I am triumphant.
But an intensity as mine
Must soften with time.
For I too, do wax and do wane
Like a flickering flame.
I will subside
For I must do so,
But stay open-eyed
Nay I’ll steal back so.
