TEARS FROM WITHIN

She pants and frets, 
Investigates his authenticity and gets 
Nervous, sees a little bad air hovering and runs like a scared little pet 
She settles in her cocoon of darkness, ignoring the many bets 
On her, then tries to forget 

But the scorned man calls her a man eater 
A man eater who is not a good beater 
A man eater who cannot roar 
And does not have strong paws, fangs nor obvious instinct for blood 
While she purrs like a scared little hungry lost cat in the dark 

All mouths connive to give her a beating 
All fingers meet and agree to point to one direction, hers, in a sitting 
Even her most treasured parts, give her a whipping 
Yet she has no ill thoughts but a yearning 
To be heard and parted on the back and told, it’s alright; everything 

But the scorned man calls her a man eater 
A man eater who is not a good beater 
A man eater who cannot roar 
And does not have strong paws, fangs nor obvious instinct for blood 
While she purrs like a scared little hungry lost cat in the dark 

Just look keener for a moment 
Before the comments form and pour in horrible torrents 
Not all lurking pain peeks through beautiful garments 
Sometimes, smooth assuring words are potent 
Than humans’ tongues of serpents

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
