BY CROSSING THIS LINE

A lioness
…temporarily turning mouse
…to erase fears of a cat
…and help the cat feel fat
…for familiarity to breed ease
A shivering formula
…still steps worthy

Ib
Clouds
Suns
Moons
Darkness
…till shrouds

II
In a world which has whipped my faith
…and maimed my hopes
In a world which has crippled my yearnings
…and gagged my triumphs
In a world which has ridden my fantasies
…and bitten my emotions
I sit on dilemic needles and fiddle thoughts
…of crossing this line
…to you
But I need your nod

III
By crossing this line
…I’ll be making you a home for my scars
By crossing over to you
…I’ll be making you a home for all my chasing demons
By crossing the line of our two worlds
…I’ll be making you a home for my emotional disabilities
By crossing over this line
…you’ll be mine in shine and whines
…all the hazy and crazy and shady and muddy
A going back will be impossible
Still,
…will I get the nod?

IV
I’ve perks which will push you
…up the mountain of happiness
I’ve a spirit
…which will gift you the chit to own this she
…forever
I’ve a soul
…which will love you whole
By crossing this line
…you’ll own them all –
…the love
…the hatred
…the anger
…the adorables
…the monsters
…the angels
…the fort
…the titillating journey of a curious experimentalist
Still,
…will you give it?
Will you give your nod
…as scissors to cut the sod
…of this line for my crossing?

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. :)
