Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Dear H

Because I love you still
We can't be friends
I want and need more of you
Despite all that's in the way
It's not your fault
I blame myself
I am too weak to face my role
And I let the water run dry
I understand my errors
I understand I didn't let you get there
I understand I pushed you away
I understand the obstacles
And I have reached you're limit
You've given me all that you are capable of
I appreciate your effort
To soothe me
To care for me
To make me feel good
My reckless love
Your rational ways
I can't get enough
And you don't have enough to give
I'm naive and foolish
You're grown and know better
I respect your abilities
And will grow into mine, in time.
Thank you for letting me live again
