Poem – Friend, Without That Dark Raptor – Mirabai 

Mirabai 1498 - 1546  Kudki , India

Mirabai
1498 – 1546
Kudki , India


Friend, without that Dark raptor I could not survive. 

Mother-in-law shrills at me, 

her daughter sneers, 

the prince stumbles about in a permanent fury. 

Now they’ve bolted my door 

and mounted a guard. 

But who could abandon a love 

developed through uncounted lifetimes? 

The Dark One is Mirabai’s lord, 

who else could 

slake her desire?
