Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
ARE YOU THE DEVIL?
Before you I had plans,
Before you I knew what my future held.
Before you I had made a promise to myself to make it
But when you came in to my life…phewwww!!!
But when you came into my life…Ohhhhhhh!!!
But when you came into my life…Mmmhmm!!!
Words cannot express what you did.
I began planning my life with you as the muse.
I began planning my life with you as the centerpiece.
I began planning my life with you and me being synonymous.
My life became our life,
My dreams became our dreams,
My goal became our goals.
You made a vow to me
You made a vow of unconditional love
You made a vow to take care of my heart,
But what happened, where are you?
You went away just like you came into my life.
Where is the year of assurance, of your love?
Was this a game?
Was this a challenge that you succeeded in?
Are you the devil???
Now am alone, left to pick up the pieces,
Now am alone, how can I get my ideas back to be one instead of two.
Now am alone, should I celebrate?
You made a vow to me, before God and the ancestors.
It may have been a joke to you but it is an eternal mistake.
It may have been a joke to you but the forces that we cannot see are not laughing.
If it was a game, I am not mad but I pray you learn a lesson.
