Now That You Left - Poem by Mazwi Sedibe

I have less to complain about
I have less to worry about
Less to fight about
But now that you left I have enough space to miss you

It's been a while since our separation
Yet my heart finds it hard to find concentration
For only one being had the perfect heart to be the centre
Of my focus,
I hop around in and out of love like a plague of locusts
Yet since you left I find no reason to truly love

Now that you left my imagination travels through disparate premises
Imagining the sad moments of my desperate promises
Made to do away with my lonesomeness, like any other man does
Imagine having to introduce her to my family?
Imagining him opening the door for you
Imagining him raising an offspring with you
Imagining him taking my love to the trash can
And making yearning ring promises like
If he couldn't then do not worry I can

I have thought, pondered and accepted
Let the best man win and the bustard loose
But if he lays his hand on you
The fight I will win and ensure his teeth the bustard looses
For your care I still hold in my hands
Even though you are now gone
And I will ever hold you in my hands

Now that you are gone I climax with my eyes open
For the sex has no meaning
I do not kiss the pain of a stranger away
For the relationship has no meaning
My chest is now a chest and that only
For I dry not the tears of a service provider
That counts on my tip as I leave

I walk needing nothing
Searching for nothing
Regretting nothing
But now that you gone fear puts my heart in a corner
Of submission,
I find no meaning in loving no more
For you were the meaning and more
This is dangerous, you are loving again
And it seems like this time is with meaning

Today I am moving on
For in your life loving me is only in memory of.
