How Could You - Poem by khalifa mustapha

You earned my trust so deservedly I thought
The awakening of a set devotion
Your gentle touch was overwhelmingly my source of intuition
Cleared all doubts and confusion
My heart under your invasion
So clear, pure and foolproof was our friendship
But how could you?

Your promises so promising
Appealing was your sense of humour so uncompromising
You had a good loving, so tense and energising
Never knew how damaging and terrorising
O how could you?

Within my heart You left a mark and a gap
Yet to be filled but now I have the map
Road to recovery from your clueless trap
The pain remains, unable to forget your gentle tap
How passionate of a woman you were
In my home I intended to keep you there
Start a family and a life cycle or would I say a sphere
All alone I mourn without you
Planned on how to go on about you
But with time now I see the reason why your not here
how could you!

Oh how could you!
