For This Love - Poem by Vee Bee
To make sure none followed where you led
I used my hair to cover our tracks
Sun set on the island of our bed
and we were beached there in tangles of flicker,
candles whispering at our driftwood backs.
Your eyes above me
afraid of promises I might keep
regretting the truth we did say
less than the lie we didn't,
I went in deep, I went in deep,
to fight the past for you.
Now we both know
sorrows are the seeds of loving
Now we both know I will live and
I will die for this love.
- Sadiq Khan (as quoted in Shantaram)
