TO THAW YOUR ANXIETIES

I hear your silent sighs
And see your yearning eyes
When lovers showcase themselves on media streets
And I know you want to dance to those beats
But know, I’m a priestess who shows no love possession in public
Because I owe only my muses and heart many a rhetoric

Ib
Have you thought of your unbeatable handsomeness
And your near perfect awesomeness?
Have you thought of me
…not wanting to share the voice which sings me sweet melodies
…in eyeless chambers with none?
Have you thought of me wanting us to myself
With no pressure of creating a self
…on a journey of beauty and flaws
…harmony and claws
…laughter and fights
…smiles and frowns to show none?
Have you ever thought of us on our silent journeys
Living our noises in the four walls of our love
…with no interferences?

II
I may be imperfectly loving you
But know you make most men sticks
…in my eyes
And the few who will ever catch my attention
Their passion will be your bounty reality harvests
For I can crush on others
But I will only love you
I can want another
…but I will only crave you
I can flash fantasize where others are concerned
But only you will live in my dreams
Because I’ve decided
…and none can break it but us
Because you fit me
And none can unfit us
…but us
Because this heart only beats
…at the sound of your voice
…your heartbeats
…your breaths
…and your scent

III
Just as I chose you at a sight
Know I’ll hold on with all my might
So live within this story
Live within this story unripened
Live within this story growing
And let the future do its telling
For you own the queen of hearts
One many need
…much want
But will never have because you own
Know this
And dissolve your anxieties like ice block in heated water
I may be many things
But I am that she who loves deep
…and loves long
Loyalty as my banner
And I’m telling you I’ve loved none in this life
As I love you
And I know it’ll remain that way
If we both hold onto the efforts we put in
…going forward

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. :)
