Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

For you are not mines to love

Please tell me how to stop loving you?

For my wildest dreams are longing for your love.

I can't have what I want most from you,

And that is all of you,

For you are not mines to love.

For all of your love would complete me,

Yet I am not whole.

You have impacted my life with pure delight,

You have empowered my mind,

Stole my heart,

Touched the deepest part of my soul.

And finally, for once I felt whole.

But I need to learn, how to stop loving you.

For you are not mines to love.
