tonight – a ghazal

It doesn’t matter what I think tonight
The paper just won’t catch ink tonight

The clouds all spent, the moon still hides
The wait though long, I won’t blink tonight

The beloved lives near but is a world away
The realization alas, raises a stink tonight

Sit an arm’s length from me, a ‘mehfil’ let’s make
Let our eyes be glasses and clink tonight

The day got tired, is now asleep fast
Night opens the door, with a wink tonight

The heart yearns for what the mind is against
Old foes once again at the brink tonight

A mirage love is, in this desert of heart
‘Adee’ will quench thirst with a drink tonight
