A DAY TO HIDE

Anytime your thoughts are washed
To the shores of my mind
My heart sinks like a punctured boat
I wonder if your tender soul
…has been rendered true rest
I worry and feel sorry
…that you grew no roots to the sky of your dreams
I crave a smile at my ovations
…which never graced any occasion
So I’m hiding in the dark

II
A year has hopped onto another
But I still shiver in this river of fears
Thinking our parting a deal unfair
Wondering if I can live to bear
…the presence of your absence
So I hide
…I hide in this dark

III
I hope you send a joyful sign
Of a happy cheerful spirit of you
To shed a light in my sorry plight
To help my spirit to leave this corner
As I hide
…as I hide in the dark

IV
For I sorely miss you
And I’m surely hurting
Oh I dearly want to hold you
In my writing arms
My nights have tasted no tendering
…since your gone
My dreams have featured no dimples
…since you left
My eyes see shoes which would’ve fitted
…your royal legs
I pass
…my eyes closed
In a vision of your modeling
Won’t you just send me a wave
…as I hide
As I hide in this dark?

V
I hope pain lives nowhere close to your dwelling
I pray no needles exist in your world
I sincerely wish you live like a dream
Enjoying all the perfections my imperfect
…and incapable self was unable to give you
So I hide
I hide here in the dark
Wishing this day away
This day you grandly made your entrance
Into this flawed shores through me
…to live an unbearable fate

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. :)
