Painful Realisation - Poem by kelvin nwanji

Off his feet, he was swept,
Flew high and danced in the cloud.
Genuine ecstasy from his depth,
Like a fool, he laughed aloud.

Tenderly, his body was caressed,
Brutally, his mind was raped.
Feeble, even obsessed,
Rationality and sanity escaped.

Beautiful as the angel of the morning sun,
Treacherous as a demon of the moonless night.
Her piety, an act for the one.
Sensuality a weapon against might.

Guile were her words,
Wealth was his flaw,
A companion he saw,
For her desires, she whores.

His affection never was sufficient,
His chattels owned her all the while.
To God, who is omniscient,
Why is love's ending sometimes vile?
