I’ve always loved the stars – Ahlaam Rafiq

I’ve always loved the stars

They always remind me to see

Tiny pinpricks fade through

Through this night I wear around me

It’s a cloak of visibility I’m told

To tie harder closer each day

So I can hide from eyes that seek

Conceal

It’s a magic veil, a rope, a ripple

Of pure black, the strands woven of dark

Night pretendingto guard in light’s name

I’m the wolf in sheep’s clothing, yet prey,

they say,

So i’m embraced

Tip to toe.

Heaven forbid that skin may show

In skinny jeans are you naked
