Set Me Free - Poem by Abbas Agbaje

Each time I gaze into your eyes,
I see something beyond the reach of words,
Something that makes me want you the more,
Tell the guards at the gate of your heart to give way,
A prince is about to make entry.
What is it about you that drives me nuts?
I don't seem to have a word to describe it.
Do you know how deep it hurts?
To long so much for a thing, every bit of it,
And it appears you may just be after a mere shadow,
One which you just want to follow.
I can't stand the thoughts of a killing hope
That makes one feels around one's neck a tight rope,
Set me free and let me into your world,
Grant my request and I shall do you proud.
