Sweet Love So Sour Poem by Adedolapo Olisa

Sweet Love So Sour

Like I am a kid in love with the first time sweet sour taste of a sour sweet apple
I love you,
Like a blind mind happy to have lost it's sight
I love you,
Like a dummy that follows loyally,
so I follow what pleases and is right for you,
Like a captain of a winning team is bouyant,
I feel that I love you,
Like a son of the English queen,
I am only to be regarded fortunate that I love you,
Like the oceans of the world,
my love flows purer with it's waves ejecting the debris in my love for you,
Really, it is infallible
I cannot grasp an explanation cos there is none
it is intangible
thoughts alone secrete in me adrenalin
like a car with the sticker 'baby on board' is my care towards your tender heart
I call it an egg that MUST not break
but in all; still
How can it be that i love what I cannot have?
It is irony to think I am in love after only first day; but am I not?
I am not just, I am lost!
debating painfully does not change it;
'I cannot afford to love you' is the fact to be instilled in me
my heart cannot just but be broken this time
It is like a desire to marry a princess yet a pauper
does the princess' love count for anything?
I know it is obvious this rock, this obstacle, has no line of weakness
my love will only lead me to suicide also, I know
She has drawn in me a bold inerasable diagram of love that now is like a punishment to my mind
This love is killing me, it is sweet like honey but it tastes like cranberry.

Beautiful and intoxicating, like poisoned honey. This poem rings true.
