Best Poem of Merlin Mwaura

' I Do...'

I do...
Take your hand from this dark abyss,
take me out of this emptiness,
keep me from a bloody mess,
black ribbons and black bow ties,
ghost eyes,
cold thighs,

cremate me while we make smoky love,

glass bands and wedding rings,
tear this flesh and with bloodied ink,
write our vows forever more.
' I do '....

I do want there to be a forever,
dark clouds or shiny sky,
full moon creeping in the afternoon.
