Friendship

by Sanjida Shaheed

.
Bismillah

Are you willing
To talk?

And listen?

Friend-to-friend?
Heart-to-heart?
Soul-to-soul?

Vendors
Masquerade.

As well-wishers
Who know me.

Selling wares
I do not need.

Disguised as
Must-haves.

Packaged
In a pretty box.

What I seek
Has no label.

No barcode.

No price tag.

What I seek
Cannot be sold.

And what is sold
Is not what
I seek.

Are you willing
To leave
This marketplace?

When your soul
Is restless
And homeless.

When your heart
Is broken
And empty.

Perhaps then
Will you come.

Perhaps then
Can words flow.

Friend-to-friend.
Heart-to-heart.
Soul-to-soul.

And mend us.

With Divine Love.
