! ! ! -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.

    This is one of the better rhythm and rhyme pieces I have read in my reviews here.
    There is so little to speak of negatively, that I simply choose not to do so. That is because the readers will not notice the difference. A worthy 9.

    Amazing Mntwana wase Khaya!
    this poem is an ccurate description of how love sometimes creeps in without us knowing
    isnt nice to write in Xhosa sometimes?

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
