Poem: Fasting


Love is an eternal fast
Lovers never break their fast

In the holy mosque of each other’s arms
They lie quietly
Each other’s silent prayers
without caring about world
or the set norms of the society..
.. gender, race, ethnicity,religion….

And yet
Beyond the vast endless net
Of giant constellations
God smiles
While the fast goes on
Ever, ever, ever and ever
