Nkululeko Mdudu Poems
! ! ! -My Love Has Loved You Best~! ! !
I knew what you did to me,
But I didn't know why;
So I labelled It Love,
And I let It lie...
Deep within my soul,
Safely captured and stored till now.
But without me knowing,
It grew stronger than me somehow.
A prisoner outlasting jail,
A slave turned master;
A Thing I can't restrain;
Towards you, moving faster.
As if It smells the blood of Its own kind,
and longing for Its mother there to rest.
It can't see, hear, taste or touch,
But I know my Love has loved you best.

As I lay here in my bed;
I think of all the things they said.
'How do i love thee? ', I quote.
And 'let me not to the marriage of true minds', he wrote.
well; I have had two marriages;
one with I; myself and me, and one with bridal carriages.
(I only witnessed the latter) I have now had time to think;
and this reality begins to sink:
I am not of an era, not even an age.
