If Only I - Poem by Thato Maluleka

If only I could simplify love you would meet the requirements you see, they would be engraved from deep within the soil from above, and then we could fly above the ever blue skies like a white dove…

And as sunshine dazes catch me awake-Sleeping, day dreaming, holding on to summertime grooves as soft as the blues I’ll fly loose. And as you kindly harass the dance floor caress the whole floor, swift across the room effortless I’m speechless, almost motionless.

Oh no she flows like rhymes and punch lines in one line she’s so fine, fine-tuned she blows my mind…

If only I could simplify love, you have already met my requirements you see, your love is spotless, dirt has never once been on the surface you walk on, you are timeless, mine nevertheless.

We should nurture our nest to the finest, ‘cause lest we nurture its being it will die indeed a tragic passing never seen, heard of, or have been.

I have always seen you in me. And if time grants us a wish I guarantee we will forever be, be you and me.
