Tales At Night by Rasaq Malik

Not a moonlight tale

With its gathering pleasure

Giving birth for toes to dance

When moon glistens

Mine is a riddle,

Searching for tongues to break

The shell of its hidden,

Aged riddle

In womb of time

Mine is a call,

Seeking tune to drum,

To find the riddle that trapped me in muse.

We are the victims of wars

Land where peace is an alien and

Blood is our bath

Where evil dance trapped our legs

We are the travelers in the sea where

Only drum of dirge dances and

Lyrics of death flows in our mouth

Aged dreams

Set ablaze before rise of dawn,

Only at night we can sing,

When candles will glow in remembrance…

We are the singing voices

Clamoring for justice for

The bloodshed in trance

After naked festive of lies

Tales at night only

When elders dine with the moon

Leaving behind only

Our cry and broken melodies

Tales of seasons

That breaks calabash of joy

Pouring teasing blood

On our flowing rivers

I can only tell tales,

Tales of estranged kinsmen

Searching for the unseen cord

To tie their hearts
