“Love on the Street” by Ayesha F. Hamid

I look up crookedly, just a bum on the street,
but I can still see the things you don’t think
I can see – the steps you take, the role you play
the stride with which you walk makes its way
deep into the recesses of my heart,
out through every tear, every drop,
the liquid filled with lore and longing,
and as long as I have eyes, which can offer
love at first sight, the greatest gift
a human soul can give, even when crouched down
on the ground, starting without a sound,
I give you the only thing I have to give – LOVE.
