Betrayed - Poem by Pascal Umekwe
How dare you ask me to share my song?
This single song I found without you.
How could I compound my joys in stocks that you sell?
How could I share my song with you and not soil its rhythm?
You passed through my life like a blazing lightening
Bruised my petals with your rough touch
With silky smiles and rehearsed smooches you took my gold in exchange for clay
How could you now ask me to share my song?
To trust my refrain on those lips of lies
Or throw my last embrace against the scalpel of your smiles
Those smiles I know too well
No not I.
I will not wade the same waters as you
Will not sit on the same swing
Not walk the same way
Not the same streets
Not this time
