Letter From Her
Making you smile often I try
Or did I ever make you cry?
Which more have you had?
If all I am saying is right
Say in the broad daylight.
But if all is a lie
Hiss and wink your eye
In minds we are now afar.
The world came with its tide
And a whole conscience got tied.
Its flood drowned your mind.
Its wind blew your stand.
Your virtues got inundated
How more can you pretend?
The cross line I've seen at first
But with love I was full of thirst..
That veil made me unprepared.
I know you wanted it end
In a while you've shown to bend
World Jezebels made you blend.
My food you took as poison
My feelings you chose to imprison
My affections you want gone soon
My emotions you want frozen
My gifts you want to arson
My sweet ideas now you jettison
Going through her last letter
Hope we see and I demand answer,
...Was that intentional?
I know it’s not rational
To spade my heart
All for all you want;
To materialize your heart;
All to make my effort knot;
Tagging my love ephemeral.
Money you take all the answer.
