Two veils

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

You willed
Me to be.

And You willed
Two veils.

Between You and me.

One is
Your mercy.

The other –
My fallacy.

You veiled
Your Face from me.
With a veil.

Of light.

And I veiled
Your Face from me.
With a veil.

Of desire.

Your veil saves me
From being burned.

By Love.

My veil keeps me
From burning.

With love.

I cannot
Lift Your veil.

I can
Lift my own veil.

Only if You will.

Will me to be.
Closer to You.

You say “Be!”

And it is.
