Where Are You, My Beloved? - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Are you in that little paradise,
where my childhood is still playing hide and seek
waiting for butterflies to arrive
a kite to fall from sky and run with urchin to catch
and you cheering from behind to go get it….

Or hanging in the same garden
where the shrine of virtue has been placed in your honour,
and upon which you offer my heart and soul as sacrifice?
to become larger than life and obey world’s norms.

The darkness has swallowed the bright lights
Turning night to show the last moon light
And you are hiding somewhere behind the stars
Before the dawn breaks, let you and me share it again.
