Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Bitter-sweet memory

The image of you
is burned into my mind (for always?)

Is this a blessing
or a nightmare?

A blessing as bitter-sweet memories
are all I´m takin with me?
Or a nightmare
because they will never let go of me?

I can see u clearly wherever I go.
It feels like a physical pain
having u not around me.
My memory is that all I can have of u?

They say "Pain makes u stronger."
Did someone ask me if I wanna pay
this price for being stronger?

I didn´t ask for all of that.
I didn´t ask for a pain
which drives me close to insanity.

All all all I´m asking for is
waking up next to you.
