In A Perfect World - Poem by Masharia kanyari

You always had an eye for beefy men,
But I was far from remotely athletic,
I don't know how but I hit the gym,
I never quite could let you down,
Like your first time at the gynaecologist,
To check on the post-coital bleeding,
I missed a test so that I could be there with you,
I'll never forget how you showed your gratitude,

I loved the plain you every morning,
Standing 5' 4'' in your pink sneakers,
I loved your scent and coffee stained teeth,
In my arms; even when you didn't believe me,
You were the fire of my loins,
My greatest fear was you'd lose your magic,
Our enchanted bond would be severed,
Sending the realities of life crashing in,

When I said you weren't what I needed,
You walked away; Let me have my space,
But leaving you didn't hurt me near as badly,
Like the kisses I knew I would miss,
Yet when the news reached me that you were engaged,
I realized I was genuinely happy for you,
For given the chance; I would still dump you again...

    well... the poem created a lot of thoughts in my head... they are different and i really cannot describe my attitude in few words. the verse is quite cold... i may say(i guess) it is a private situation which you have shown in a nice way. (Report) Reply
