It Hurts


We were mates in the same class.
We were good friends, all knew that.
We were littles, together we climbed the education ladder,
Till our path forked after junior high school.
I felt the starting step love for her
But never hint her my heart climbed for her. I acted cool.
'Tell her'. I couldnt.
'Tell her'. I couldnt.
My heart kept talking,
But,
I could not.

God been so Good, SHS was our portion.
I had a school, homogeneous of same sex.
She had a school, but heterogeneous.
And that shook me a micro little.

Her thought drove all the beauties away.
She was part of my core, but it was too late.
One day, getting to WASSCE, I gathered all
My broken courages and through cyberspace,
Made her know how my heart drummed before her presence.
She replied, 'Bobi, you are just a friend' with a little
laughter, behind.

It hurts.
