EX’S CONUNDRUM

He sees
He sees how smitten I am by you
And asks
And asks how you charmed an untamed like me
I wish there are words in dignified portion
…ready to fit his answer

II
The way you look
The way you look at me like a treasure needing unblinking
…lest a lurking thief snatches

IIb
The way you follow
The way you follow me like moonlight
…needed by a night traveler
Who is wowed by its very essence

IIc
The way you pamper
The way you pamper me till I sleep on pillows of fantasies
…and wake to find them intact
Creating a heaven no hell can beat

IId
The way you laugh
The way you laugh at my follies
Calling them adorable no matter how horrible
Creating a safe space fenced with love

IIe
The way you come through
The way you come through in all your promises
Forcing my heartbeat to skip and trip and fall
…deep deep within your love

IIf
The way you listen
The way you listen to act
Act to satisfy
Satisfy to smile
…icing my days with your dimples
Creates no bait for a snatcher

IIg
Your watchful ways
Making sure no disagreement fester into a crack
Solving issues immediately they come up
Harmonizing us in such honourable ways
…banishes doubts and crowns my trust every time

IIh
The way you are
No dramatics, no embarrassment
No loudness, no lies
No low self esteem
No low self confidence
Living as the MAN among all men
…makes me proud in all our crowds

III
But each and every reason will seem an insult
Each and every smile before
…a well cooked karma
Each and every smile after
…a spite to smite
So I smile wryly when he asks
For he is one sweet soul who could keep not up with my passions
…creating a lacuna I hated to sense
Whipping me senseless till my falling out
…falling out of love with him

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. :)
