With A Bleeding Heart - Poem by Adolf Baloyi

Just like a star shining ever brighter till the full light of day
You stole my life, joy and happiness then helplessly left me wandering
Often I feel the touch of your arms around my heart
A conjuring touch that gives hope and promise

Just like a star shining ever brighter till the full light of day
I loved you and earnestly vowed never to love again
I missed the distinctive fragrance of your hair
The look in your eyes and the sweetness of your lips

Just like a star shining ever brighter till the full light of day
I missed the brightness into those innocent eyes
The giggling, smiles and most importantly the touch
You're the brightest star amongst the constellations
You are the queen in my island, my treasure, my soul and yes my heartbeat

Just like a star shining ever brighter till the full light of day
Your absent is felt even in my sleep
The distance takes my breath away but yet my love for you persists
Yes I am holding on to a dream, a phantom illusion that only you can safe me.

Who am I without you? A queen-less king in my kingdom
I am on my knee, crawling towards you humbly bowing my head as a symbol of respect. Disarmed, vulnerable as I am begging for your unrequited love. Paralyzed yearning for days of yore, how i wished you could find my hearts construction in my face
