Love is blind, a saying well said!
Thinking of him I get out of my bed,
Every day I take a deep breath,
I must have him wear my love’s wreath.
On my way to school, I see him
Working hard to clear some kind of prelim
He looks at me but doesn’t see,
The aching heart that I carry with me
‘on my way back’, I think
‘I must bring him some kind of drink!’
Working my finger to the bone
I hurry back to see him alone.
Alas, waiting for me is a nasty surprise,
Flocked around him a group of chics
Check him out like a prize!
My values and my feelings start to mix
I feel like launching an assault of bricks!
Stomping my way back,
I decide to launch a volley of attack;
On my mother, and persuade her
That he and I are meant for each other!
“What’s so special about him that you are dying
And go as far as defying
The wishes of your mother?”
‘He is fearless, bold, affectionate and loving
Faithful so much that he will come shoving
Aside the people who want to hurt me
And from every pain he shall set me free!’
I spoke with my voice full of defiance
“yeah, whatever, I do not approve of this alliance.”
With my head hung low,
I move towards him slow
Knowing that I must break the ice
I look into his deep brown eyes
‘I am sorry but we can’t be together
In this lifetime however
I will never forget your face
And there will always be an empty place
In my heart and soul reserved for you’
He looks at me with astonishment
And turns his back in acknowledgement
Wagging his tail, he goes back and joins his kin
Playing around the garbage bin
Those little paws which have now embarked
On a new journey, has marked
This heart as his own
Leaving me forever in the broken heart zone…
