A POEM TO A SONG I DOWNLOADED

Vanity explains itself in the movement of water
Slowly passing away, slowly coming on.
I stand at the river bank: Without hopes of making any withdrawals.

I am nervous…

I wait impatiently, Randomly searching my train of thought
For words whose meaning never die,
My mind arouses truth,
I sluggishly admit that I cannot imagine this,
“Because the rhapsody and poem in my mind is music at its least”.

I hit the play button,
Suspense began to whistle,
A minute… Two… Three, pass
I follow the silence in hopes that it will pass.

The first sight that burned was an absence of disorder.. Everything was in place: I had earlier fiddled through the arrangements…Placed an I in sight, And left reflections for the night.

It was 2:39 am, Clearly it was starting to dawn on me, I raise the sheets and slide in.
Regret makes our pillows softer, I draw the sheets closer and cuddled with her.
I am reaping seeds of a colder her, Seeds that I did sow, Lost in translation, where did my sunshine go?

Our prejudices sometimes influence our preferences..
And as far as familiarity goes,
Friends will always play foes.
I hate this hate, this induced distance and the hope for fate
A desire for togetherness.
And the want of being alone.

Buses grumble by in this train of thought and I hear a Passenger asking why I let her go, stones stepped on cause much more pain for smaller feet, the Irony insults the Metaphor
the things you stomach the most never let’s you shit.

Igenebga.
