Letter To The Lover - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Now tell me the truth oh dear one
Let me understand the reason why
Why is your voice lodged in my head?
And your heartbeat in my pulse

You seem to be the iris of my eye
The tongue embedded in my mouth
Are you the cillia that sifts the air I breathe?
Or the aorta that pumps life to my walls

Here I state my confession
Since the day you crossed my path
I have seen with eyes of joy
I've lived in the bubble of hope

Tell me the truth at once
Why I no longer see any other
Tis only your voice I hear in crowds
Have you somehow invaded my mind?

I spring like a gazelle when you come
Yet crawl like a snail in sorrow when you gone
Tell me dear one why do I love you so
Cling and counts every second to your coming

Dear lover you're none like others
I hold your thoughts close to my heart
The mentioning of your name heals my ills
I can go on for miles and not hunger
