Whos Crying Now - Poem by Bhekumuzi kubheka

I remember begging.
I remember trying.
Calling, texting.

Roasted bread with buttercream
sweet coffee every morning.
You told me jump,
i asked how high?
You told me to wait on a rain,
the whole night i waited, but no sign of you.
The whole night i hoped you'd come back for me.
The nights i have cried over you.
The pain you have caused me.

Silly jokes that made no sense,
like a fool i laughed.
Silly mistakes that were obvious,
i forgave you.

I wonder who's crying now
now that he beats you day and nights.
Now that he cheats with your sister.
Now that you spend your nights alone
now that he doesn't beg like i used too.
He doesn't even try
he never comes home
he never calls nor text.
I wonder who's crying now

he drinks your money
he calls you names
tell me dear who's crying now on my door steps?
