The Senator's Daughter - Poem by Abina Baveghems
I woke up this morning,
A lie, I couldn't even sleep,
For in my head more than a thousand times
I replayed the memory of the senator's daughter,
Just by chance I passed her by while she was on the balcony crying,
I don't know how, but I couldn't help not asking why?
For the reason I was dying.
She bowed her head and bat her eyes
And said to 'go away! ,
You have no business with why I cry'
Then she bade me a 'Good day! '.
But before she turned and stormed away,
I think I caught a smile,
Or maybe not, but anyway I stood there quite a while,
It baffled me the chemistry that I was just dealt,
If only she were just like me
And felt what I had felt,
If only she was just like me
Her lips I wished to melt
With the flames and lust and love and sparks
That kept me awake all night
We could have sailed like Sappho in an ark
Away to paradise.
