Habits - Poem by Nikki Giovanni

I haven't written a poem in so long
I may have forgotten how
unless writing a poem
is like riding a bike
or swimming upstream
or loving you
it may be a habit that once aquired
is never lost

but you say i'm foolish
of course you love me
but being loved of course
is not the same as being loved because
or being loved despite
or being loved


if you love me why
do i feel so lonely
and why do i always wake up alone
and why am i practicing
not having you to love
i never loved you that way
Nikki Giovanni

Could find no heart in the beast,
And two on the second day.

Jab mandiroon pe chaand k hamrah,
Bujhti jaati thi aakhri shammen,

Aankh Se Door Na Ho, Dil Se Utar Jaye Ga
Waqt Ka Kia Hai Guzarta Hai Guzar Jaye Ga
