Aphroditus - Poem by samuel nze

Laurence and Mary
Were two lovers
Living in Mexico
And sharing a neighbourhood
Mary was a princess
But Laurence was an orphan
He loved her
But she felt he was
Beneath her standard
Yet he continued to hope
Last year he sent me
An email to say
That Mary was contemplating
Marriage to another man
Older and richer
Of higher social standing
And what should he do
I am worried
Can Mary do that to him
Even when she knew he loved her
Not to mention all the
Time they had shared together
Or the kiss that evening
When for the first time he said
I love you
