I HAVE LOVED

I have loved
Loved like a mother hen
Loving a wild cock
In the midst of many young and vibrant hens

II
I have loved
Loved like a meek sheep
Loving a very potent he goat
With so many options
And no eyes for love detection

III
I have loved
Loved like an obedient donkey
Serving an ungrateful master
Who loves only the sound his whip
On its body

IV
I have loved
Loved like a fertile dog
Serving the seller of its precious babies
For coins and papers

V
I have loved
Loved like a mango tree
Dedicated to one addicted only to its fruits
Only visited in seasons

VI
I have loved
Loved like Jonah in the belly of a whale
Which rested soundly
In the belly of the sea

VII
I have loved
Loved into carcasshood
Waiting for love vultures
To take all that remains of my heart

VIII
I have loved
Loved all in luck’s opposition
Now looking forward to none
No character in love
