Rehan Qayoom



Love Is Better Than Wine




Don’t evade your realm because you think you’re weak

Sanctify our hole-and-corner warm white day

Stay and fight the battle with your own physique


Go away and pray


If I ever pass along your street again

Will you hire your boys to hurl abuse at me?

Can we ever (in the same way) meet again


Speaking Silverly?


I learn to live with what I’ve got and just then

Teeming tears of grief, flaccid pain

Tell me what I never had and where and when


My eyes can’t contain


Light enough to know our days won’t return

And it feels like I am close to passing out

Now the wings of tiny little angels burn


What’s love all about?


Grace me with your Chardonnay kisses tonight

Scintillating stature in fur coat soused in

Bathed luminosities and glinting light

Let our life begin
