He Came Up To Me - Poem by LLM Mbatha

He came up to me
With the biggest smile
Ever...
Wanting to shake my hand
As though him and I
Have been friends forever!
But I couldn’t remember:
From where I saw this face? !
Sensing my perplexity
He soon came to my rescue
“…from the Poetry Evening! ”
The audience is always ‘more’
Always nerve breaking
I know I was shaking
There was only one of me-
I think it’s always nice
If somebody remembers
You
For the poetry, of you-
