Grandma's Dementia

Last Monday, grandma told me in between her gasping for breath that I smell bad

To hide the pain her tongue has lashed on my heart

Yesterday, Naafisatu my bride to be, she who nurtures my desires in sensuous bliss
came and knelt infront of grandma, a sign of humility, her humble greetings
