This Claim In the Name of Love

this acclaimed love

had to be tested

what use was glossy poetry

fantastic calligraphy

artistic mastery

in the name of love

if one holds enmity

begrudgingly

towards the family

easy it is to love

them in words

and recitals

upon podiums

and grand screens

yet know

love shall test you

through living DNA

those physical

manifestations

on the ground

in flesh and bones

who arrived

on the scene

to test these

so called claims

bringing shadows out

in broad daylight

veiled by the night

what use

was your love

for the beloved

in absence of his

necessary beloveds
