Cupid's Torn Wing - Poem by Norman Mukwakwami
At least once in life,
You have that lover,
Not the romantic,
Neither The One,
At whose mention your heart skips a beat.
Nor the Judas,
At whose, your blood boils.
Nor even the one who never knew of your love.
It's the one whose love you could not reciprocate.
When they said I LOVE YOU
All you said was I KNOW
For a lie you not tell,
Nor break their heart with the truth.
But now you realise.
You cherished their kindness,
Adored their innocence,
Relished their attention.
Now you realise you cared as much as they did.
Though their kisses did not set your heart on fire.
Or ignite your passion.
Nor make you tremble with desire.
Their taste still lingers on your lips.
