Purvi Shah: Eschew not I spires & domes but inhabit  

   devotion in a Taj of my own

Eschew not I spires & domes but inhabit devotion in a Taj of my own. 
In self’s shrine unshackled, I loose liberated erotics in a Taj of my own. 

Every seeker shivers in sorrow to ecstasy/despair to elation. 
With each infirmity of desire, I concoct an ilaaj of my own. 

Unabashed desires can be the most magnificent creation. 
Shah Jahan too would adore & avow this laaj of my own. 

Must love’s greatest expression await death? 
In beloved’s absence too, I make an aaj of my own. 

In your gaze, what need a woman for imam or pandit/yatra or prayer? 
Even if it be from your eyebrow to eyebrow, I too seek a hajj of my own. 

Bring me love’s architect: Purvi is set to anoint 
new Shah, engineer one jaan, a raj of my own.
