Arabian Nights

for love
i wish to give all
i’ll wash your feet in 
rose and musk waters 
i’ll perfume you 
with the finest oils
in hammams 
during shisha hours 
i’ll gaze all day
forgetting prayers
for you i worship 
day and night
you are rosary 
my heart’s delight
my Arabian Nights 
those silken robes
those semetic curls
the oud player strings
while you sing
i lounge enchanted 
death awaits me
you are poison 
i am prey
you are predator
please slay 
so slyly 
you snatched my heart
from the very start
do you not have shame
for the schemes you play
these wicked games 
incomparable to chess 
carom or blackgammon
