Two Love Poems (by Rasaq Malik)



Wait like the eventide
Praying on the mat of darkness

The moon will come tonight
Only if this love is real

Wait my love
For the promise of I do
And the ring of tales
Only for you

Wait like a bride
And count this rosary to see
The secrets of this sloppy road

Wait for me under this tree
For the July’s wind will
Sail us across the coast of love
Where tomorrow
I will read to you; this weighty poem

Only if you wait
Like the eventide on the mat of prayers


In your name; I see hopes in the spirit of affection
That ignites this intense love
As I lost on the track of return
In the web of your beauty

(Rasaq Malik is a young and prolific Nigerian poet)
