Visions - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

I happened upon him

A consequence, an unexpected unwanted surprise

I stole upon him once upon a morn

Tall, dark, handsome, the entire cliche package

I know, I know

Twinkling lights for eyes

Stars more like a better description

The revelations, the visions, and prophesies


the mock of him! the mock of me!

the sod plodding senselessness of it all

I pumped my fists and threatened fate

‘shoo! shoo! stay away! ’

fate stayed away, so did he.

I happened upon him

And saw our children with his eyes

Saw us grown old together

I happened upon him

But missed him by a couple seconds

He never got to see me, not really.
