HEARTBEATS

I feel
…I feel your finger-breaths
…counting your heartbeats in seconds
…holding mine to sync yours
I easily count your every blink

2.
I know
… I know every corner of your body
…just as an explorer and her familiar map
…and I know your body rap
…the sounds of your goosebumps
…the horn of your coming

3.
I love
… I love the feel of your skin
…the crown of your king
…the ring of your whole
…the line of your hidden hesitation
…the shape of your mouth
…the nape of your south
…the wriggle of your tickle
Oh the shine in your smile
…and the melody in your laughter

4.
Your soul Bluetooths me your distress
…and your happiness
Your spirit text-messages me your needs
…and your givings
Your body Whatsups me your yearnings
…and your earnings
Your head emails me your thoughts
…and your lots
Your eyes tweet me your love
…and your care
So what can I do?

We seem like a pair of peas in a pod
We seem like a twin tuber on a cassava stick
We are like same keys on a keyholder
We seem like a happy picture in a skilled painting
But the closer we are
…the harder we bleed
…the harder we bleed
…the weaker we wane
…the weaker we wane
…the sicker we become
A love like death in a far beauty
…and a close ugliness
Oh how sad
…sad that this head
…holds the reigns of her heart
And whips it to a stop
…always
…at the peak of surrender

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. :)
