Except You! - Poem by ifedayo oshin

I am hungry
I could not eat

Thirsty,
I could not drink

Sweating profusely,
I could not shower

Aching stomach
I could not care less

Father called
I did not respond

Mother sent for me
I did not go

Friends and folks looked for me
I dodged them

Except i see you
Except hear your voice
Except you become mine
Oh! Most wanted of women
