Stolen Ghazal

clouds_edward stojakovic via flickrWe tried to embrace under curtained sky
stale heartbeats buried under the sky


We should have been true like the wind
searched for traces of rain buried in the sky


Our embrace was stolen by trembling clouds
bittersweet sounds hidden in the sky


We were like we were children in the rain
how we danced and waved to a clouded sky


We tried to kiss under the curtained beam
but knew we were children of a dark sky.
