I Am Turning Back - Poem by inomusa ndlovu

i find a friend to talk too
i stare her in the eye and fear her
she talks of her world, i fear to share mine
for mine is too contradicting to hers

i fear to be hurt so i show distrust
i close my eyes and hope not to remember
though i have never met her, her name comes up
like a confused child i turn and look back

look back at no memories
look back to a number of mails i fear to delete
i cant i understand her, i cant be like her
but i can still let her know

i am turning back to say my apology
i am looking back to treasure our conversations
i am going forward for our worlds have just parted
in my memories you will dwell
