You ask me
You ask me where our love went
Forgetting it turned into many little birds
Each flying out with your traits

One flew out on the wings of your unanswerable calls
…with no tangible reasons
Another flew out through the windows of inadequate care on my birthday
Another flew out of the door of your insensitivity
When you left me cold
…on a day I needed you most
Another flew out of your hands, when you turned insult punch
…to hit my mother
Another flew out through your silence
…when you failed to compliment me
…even when I tried so hard to look good for you
Another flew out on the wings of your cheating
Another flew out with your hurtful words
…cruel screams
…and embarrassing addresses
By the time I realized
I lived like a corpse of love
…completely unliving in your presence
I could not see my death manifesting through your actions
So I pulled the brakes on my heart
…which screeched and burned at the abrupt end
But cooled with time

This is what happened to us
So deal with it

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. :)
