LOVE’S STING (an experiment in lines) by Sewuese Leah Anyo

Those twinkles and heartrobs

those sweet, glowing nights
you spent dreaming and smiling
those tireless moments you spent
thinking of nobody else
those daring moves that shocked you
those careless, nervous chatters
and that funny feeling you got
thinking you were swimming in an ocean
with conspicuously winged butterflies all over you

 

yet you watched in disdain
as each day, the distance grew wider
one day, everything BOMBED UP
everything streamed away
like rain on a duck’s back

 

Now torn, no, now grown
you descend heavily on sanity
for letting you so carelessly
showcase your soul like jewelry

 

thank God the lights are on
no bumping your head
against a dark roomed wall
thank God, you feel you are okay

 

but… the pain still grows
