Night Vigil

it is said

both night

and dawn prayer

are hard

upon the hypocrite

how ironic

these times

are most previous

for mad lovers

don’t claim

you’re mad

if sleep is

more precious

than love

night vigil

qiyam ul layl

the most precious

most intimate time

for love with love

sleep dethroned

for the beloved

yet you claim


yet still sleep
