Chambers of history

niz.jpgAround the octagonal
Nila gumbad in Nizamuddin
I will find 8 ways to love you
That will stand the test of time
Since 1625,
On cold Christmas eve
overlooking Humayun’s Tomb
anticipating the dargah
I will love you
chipped desecrated
desperate blue
hung between history and death.
You can love me back,
Or else there’s
the ghalib street
a desolate walk away
