After The Truce - Poem by Opeyemi Dedayo

Only you can make me feel loved,
Only you
Even if I am angry like Sango
The thunder god
Or filled with venom like mamba
My heart will not vainly thud
I will still love.


Only you can make me feel loved,
Only you
Even if I am restive like rudderless kids
In a game of skip
Or reckless with words like a drunkard
My feelings for you still speak sense
With a substantial dose of penance.


My love for you remains pure
Like the glacial flow from the spring


My love for you is the green deposit
Of moistened meadows in a rainforest


My love for you is the azure face of the sky
Vast
Endless
Eternal.
