CAPTURED BY THE HEART

Going and going

Fuming and fuming

About the weather and its mood swings

‘Good morning’ is all it took

And I am captured instantly

Limerence?

 

“Mate ahwe wo dↄ mu

Ma tↄ ↄdↄ nsuo mu

Ԑde merekↄ nanso ↄrehwԑ me hann

Ɔkukudurufo bi ndom mbԑyi me ԑ?”

 

My world is swelling

My body is shrinking

I’m now a powerless dwarf

With an owl’s eyes

I gape and I gape

And I’m still hungry

 

“Mate ahwe wo dↄ mu

Ma tↄ ↄdↄ nsuo mu

Ԑde merekↄ nanso ↄrehwԑ me hann

Ɔkukudurufo bi ndom mbԑyi me ԑ?”

 

He is turning away

A beast and a robber in cover of handsomeness

Laughing and ‘prouding’ in his manly feat

How can he eat this strong heart without batting an eye?

One who gigolos with his presence

I call and I call but none responds

 

“Mate ahwe ne dↄ mu

Ma tↄ ↄdↄ nsuo mu

Ԑde merekↄ nanso ↄrehwԑ me hann

Ɔkukudurufo bi ndom mbԑyi me ԑ?

Obiara nni hↄ

Ewiase ayԑ budiin

Babiara ne biribiara ayi me ama”

 

I am forced to duck

I am forced by the waves to duck a second time

I am forced by all the river forces to duck a third time

And I drown

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. :)
