A Love Story! - Poem by Adebayo Smartfingers

My heartbeat is running ten thousand miles
sleep has deserted my eyes
But why? why did i choose to be like a toy at the mercy of a baby's pranks?
I'd never envisage my life to go this way
I walked out last night, it was so cold but daringly i walked on
Feeling chilling cold outside is better than feeling deadly warmth inside
As i walked on, sobbing and panting
Something, i least expected happened
Before i tell you what happened,
Let me give you a flashback of my love escapades
I was an unrepentant lover of girls
My love for sex you can never guess
Gradually i turned a new leaf and abandoned my old ways
This happened when i met my angel-turned-devil
she came my way, and i threw away my dirty habit
But now, like fresh milk gone sour
she is a good girl gone bad
2night, she wont just let peace reign
Abuses & tussles is falling on me like rain
Earlier on, i told you something happened
-hun-hun! (clears throat) ...
I met a heartbroken lady
Just like me, she is a victim of ill-ridden love
In the same shoes we were, we found solution to our love issues
Sheepishly i followed her home
She told she is all alone that her husband eloped with a rich lady to Rome
Twenty times today, my talented trouble manufacturer/girlfriend has called
Sure, she is feeling alone; she has missed me to the bone
But guess what? I told her: sorry, honey, its a little bit late,
Because i have found my better half - the bone of my bone - the flesh of my flesh.
