Does Love Lie? - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE
So many are claimed casualties
Mercilessly slayed by love
Though without thorns
Does love really hurts?
Or it is our lips that lies
Does love really change?
Or end just like that
Was its glory claimed?
Or was never here nor there
Its presence only faked
Can sweaty palms
Truly attest its truthfulness
Are these gallops from the heart?
Reflective of its fullness
Can love be truly measured?
Does love see with mortal eyes?
Chasing after things seen by human eye
Or is it from a place of lust
Where what matters is devalued
Where hearts pursue their own fictions?
Does love lie?
Or it is us who never knew its worth
Who only pledged it with our lips
Draped it with words never meant
While truly never knew its depth
