If I Say I Love You - Poem by Anugo J. Edoka

Days without you are like years without rain,

like waters without depth,

I dream to dream of you

Under your illusions, shackled in bliss

For your rumbling thoughts

Drained of energy to escape your clinging grasp

On my humbling soul, am glad in your captive clutch,

To live to die wit u and to die to live for you, I said it with love

To be loved is to be enlivened, to turn back on prior malign mouths

To be concerned with nothing but i and so do I you

In tomorrow's uncertainties

If I live through it, you must have seen me through it

I heard charms, apparently your specialty

Mysterious linkage to my spiritual being

Ancestral prophecies brought fourth through our generation

A match made before the gods that serves the God that be

If I walk through realms, I need not fear to falter nor fumble

With your thoughts I'd kill Medusa with my eyes fixed upon hers

If I die, I'll come back for you, I said with courage

I see

I feel

I touch

I hear

I smell

I smile

I fly and I bask

Take you away I don't and wont

Understatement that hides under the shadows of an overstatement

To pride in my ego is to throw away the moments we have so made ours

What if I said you're my life?

Would the skies cave in?

What if they do?

What do I care?

I dug no grave nor crafted a cage for my conscience

Let it speak for me and my feelings act

If I said I love you, I said it with honesty
