You Lost Me - Poem by Mike Ekunno

You lost me
Like fermented palm wine
What sweetness there was
Now all tartness.

You lost me
Between the impatience of your fuss
And the fuss of your impatience

You lost me
At the fated fork
Where destiny must separate mentor and protege
When the silver cord that binds us
Snapped from your pace
And mine too
The one the cheetah
The other, the snail.

You lost me
When the frown on your face
Wilted the tender shoot of my esteem.

You lost me
When gold and silver tipped the scale
Against professed goodwill.

You lost me
Like congealed milk
Curdled for want of cuddle.

Hey, you lost me!
A million times today
In a million ways.
