I Can Recall.. - Poem by christine ogutu

Our love was young and gay
just like a brand new toy
out of sight was a century
loving you was my religion
even when the ocean dried up
you were the greatest
I can recall

My heart was your notepad
my rib your pen
and my blood
wow! ! !
the pre-eminent ink
you cold only jot
you was a cock in aspic
then my cherub
I can recall

Blossoming in our heart was love
every moment was precious
even when gold was priceless
love never perished but grew firm
it was a plant of slow growth
love yes love.....
was the cheapest medicine
to the wounded souls
I can recall

'Love you always' mine words
I was nice while it lasted
I might be back if I fail elsewhere
love was just an illusion
yours was not mine
speaking was our desperate souls
I can recall

Regrets, my order of day
my heart flooded my vision
I saw you and me
caged in spherical golden stripes
now I see me
in a silver ellipse
flying my wings
testing the waters
I was selfless; now selfish
the mountain love is history
I can recall
