TOO TIRING

I’ve waited on you for a decade
Hoping for stability
Praying for the station in your love nation
But you keep switching off and on
Making me stuck in your mud
…and never moving on
I need you to please stop now
…this play of here and there

II
Please don’t act like waves
…courting the shores
“I’m here
I’m receding
I’m here
I’m receding”
It gets tiresome
Because I’m not an immortal shore
…which can hope for overflowing waters
To live within the mansion of the sea
…some day

III
I am a mere mortal
My body rotting by seconds
My time draining my breaths
My memories
…all I have to cling on even in death
So why hang me up like washed rags
…only to cut me lose as footmat?

IV
I know I suffer from the downside of loyalty
Some will call it ” foolish obsession”
Some call it “Can’t let go”
But I call it love
Trusting you to stamp a permanent yes
…or no
But years are making the wait weary
And fears are making anxieties
…realities

V
So leave or stay
This year is wheeling me your half
…or your past
Onto another year
And my resolve stands in determination
In my action station

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. :)
