Urdu lover

I hold onto you
with the intensity 
o
f breath 
clinging to air
I don't let go 
and I know
this frightens you

I'm a wave that holds on
because I hear your call
to be held
a Jinn that looks beyond
into your deepest secrets
because there I truly see you
and all that is held there

and while you hold me
you tell me this cannot be
even though it already is

My Urdu lover
I cling to you
you cling to me
your God cannot control 
that which is free and untamed
