MY FIRST, AND LAST LOVE

Categories Lifestyle, Meditation

Love at first sight it was.
From then on my troubles
I laid on your shoulders
and yours became mine.
Nowhere in lighted spaces,
can I go without you
by my side, in front, or at the back.

To me, you gave your heart,
which hopefully like a raw egg,
I continue to handle with care.
I’ve taken you to many places, I know;
it’s been wise of you though,
to hide from plain sight
when you followed me into
unlit, dark spaces, where,
confess I must; I’ve done
some not-so-good things.

Nothing can I ever
conceal from you, I guess.
You always get to know
that I sometimes betray your trust;
as I make a fool of myself.
Thank you for acting naturally
’cause embarrassed I’d become
if I got to know that you know.

I promise to take good care
of the light within me
and to let you take full control
of the shadow side of me,
till we part in death.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
