Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!


I try so hard to do the best I can
But I always hurt you in the end
With each grave mistake I make
Your faith, love, and trust are erased
My intentions were of a little fun
It turns out that what I did was dumb
Now our relationship has been jepardized
If I'd used my head, we'd still be in paradise
Your angry voice pearces my heart
They cause me to ponder my actions from the start
I declared promises that I couldn't keep
Deep inside, your soul began to weep
Now I ask for you to forgive me
If we part, I fear I shall be lonely
What I desire is us, me and you
For I shall always care for you.
