*goddess Freed - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The vast bareness from the haze
Soul’s creation with saga the deity
Many virgin’s blood in sacrifice
Assumed many names wit to the fellows
The goddess she was worshippers many
In chants musical for the wrath she carried
Venoms and snakes like jasmine and roses

A worshipper is me as she moves in dream
The zephyr in breeze removes the black hair
Thin legs and where meet aroma of saffron
Bows to the earth in moon when the ritual
Love in making and protection for the faint
In love who is she says she has the cure

From the tavern when with the cup I
To the goddess in premises sanctified
Her soul she said moved as with my hand
Like the earth cold in moon and the sun
Of my warmth she wept like she had not
For centuries O lone worshipper close
On thy horse of wings take me away

My beauty is for you my body your gift
Free me from the deity goddess I am not
A hand in hand and a kiss on my neck
In the dens of ignorance they up me bred
A walk to the moon I promised the goddess
When I woke up my mind was on fire
