Poems

Lust Is My Cage

Lust is my cage
It has captured me in its shade
Filling my heart with desire & rage
Is this deliberate or is it staged
Verily this is the work of the devil with which he has me engaged
Tommorow I will be told “This is what your hands have laid!”
O Watcher of deeds (Allah) I’d like to request a trade
Grant me guidance and Your Mercy before it is too late
Grant me patience with which to control my state
I meet You and You are Pleased, make this my fate
And turn my face away from Hell’s gate
