As We Lay - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Tell me who resides in your heart
Whose reflections dwell in your mind?
Is it I you deeply thinking about
When often lost in a gaze at night?

As we lay back to back
Whose face is in your fore?
I doubt am the cause of your smile
For it seem to come from afar

How I wish tis I who cause your happy hums
Am I the sweet voice in your head?
Do I cause your heart to dance?
Or we just friendly strangers

As we lay
Is it I you embrace with a squeeze
Or an untold desire
Is it a lost lover in your past?

Would you tell if you regret
Or rather honour the waning vows
Is it I you still want?
Or we just stuck until death do us otherwise

As we lay in the still of the night
How I wish to sneak into your mind
To take a journey to your heart
To make your silent thoughts known
