TELL ME WHAT I NEED TO KNOW

Tell me
Tell me what I need to know
Break the ice of secrecy which burns my heart’s core
Please tell me

II
I can’t tell you I saw you lovingly kissing her lips
I can’t tell you I saw how you happily unzipped her zips
I can’t tell you I saw you skillfully unstrapping her bra
So annoying how she cunningly called you “Braa”
I can’t tell you the goosebumps that grew on my skin
As you dug deep into her to fetch her scornful moans from her whoring in
I don’t know what pains more
Her happy cries or your proud cheating?
Her taunting beauty or my starved bed?
Whatever it is, do tell me

III
This chirping bird in my mind can work my hands into harm
So tell me, even if you hide under the cover of her charm
My chest has climbed jealous mountains higher than Afadjato
Still, it runs up and down in fury with no tired traits
So tell me
This face which pretentiously smiles
These hands which with a little shiver serve
These legs which move around
All call for your head
So tell me
Leave not my mind to host dialogues of veins
So tell me
So I can fold my mat and leave your hut
Hearts after all are like boiling water
Once they are taken off the fires of bad love
They simmer to cool
So please tell me

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. :)
