If I lose my eyes

Just to have your eyes

Then I’ll have no eyes

To see the colour of your eyes

Must it always be at a cost?


If I give my ears

To have your ears

Then I’ll have no ears

To listen to your sounds as my words travel into your ears

Must it always be at a cost?


If I give my hands

To have your hands

Then I’ll have no hands

To feel the warmth of your hands

Must it always be at a cost?


If I give my legs

For you to follow with your legs

Then I’ll have no legs

To walk beside your legs

Great feats for love, must it always come at a cost?


If I give my heart

For you to have me in your heart

Then I’ll have no heart

To even know I’m in your heart

Great feats, must it always come at a cost?


Can’t you have everything that is yours?

Can’t I have everything that is mine

Can’t reason solve all our barring tricks?

For us to be in everlasting bliss?

These costs do always come with holes of doubt.

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. :)

Thoughtful! Must I lose myself to have yourself if we must be one?
Then what shall feel the holes in you when my plugs are gone?
