YOU’VE FALLEN FOR ME

image

There is a weak voice
Coming out of your lungs without choice
Squeaking overwhelmingly like a mouse
Which has found itself in a mad house
But your love for me is highly aroused

II.
Your eyes tell it all
Your pains through your fall
Your confusions through my call
Bottling in transparency,  making you dull
You definitely have fallen for me

III
Your mouth says ‘you is nothing’
While your heart says ‘you are everything’
Your eyebrows claim you feel nothing
While your hairs stand erect
Saluting my very presence
You really have fallen for me, hard

IV
Your heartbeats have defeated the miles
Pounding loudly like the pestle
Of a northern fufu pounder
Your skin builds mounds as big as
Gravels aiming to tickle feet
Your annoyed happiness glows
Like a bright light housed by a dim bulb
You have fallen for me, really hard

V
Pride is shelving what is groaning and causing chaos
While need is tearing eyes
Which have been bribed to beat convincing
Your whole body is dancing to my presence
Fear turning it into a light leaf
Knowledge turning me into your air
Stop blowing silly
It makes it too obvious
That you really have fallen for me
Hard

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. :)

This is a very beautiful poem with beautiful end rhymes. It reminds me of the poem “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvel. Keep it up.
