How Long - Poem by Adebayo Smartfingers

For how long will i walk in SOLITUDE
Why is love so harsh, why does it seems RUDE
As time goes by, i dread my patience will DIMINISH
O! When will it end, when will my tears FINISH?
The good/bad moments of love lingers on my MIND
Am willing to try once more, but don't know what i might FIND
Life seems fair, but fairer will it be if i get ENTANGLED
in the web of love and get its flames REKINDLED
For now, my love is for me, myself and I
This, i will do till the day i see love with my naked EYE
I will sing love songs to myself and console myself with LAUGHTER
Call me lonely, it suits me, it is all about me, only me MATTERs
Don't let this give you a picture of me having the delusion of GRANDEUR
But for how long can i hold on to my wits? how long can i ENDURE?
I will hold on to it, for as long as the sun rises and the stars TWINKLES
One day the fairy will find me and stay with me till my face WRINKLES
Am writing this poem for seriously searching fellows; the SINGLES
Desperation is a sign of weakness; seek love with PATIENCE
Frustration is a sign of little-mindedness; it will increase your TENSE
Open your heart to love, around it erect no FENCE
