my faithless lover

How can U love me
And not know me?
Pray for my success
Yet ignore my prowess?
Blade in my heart;

I bleed behind my smile.
Love still, just like I lie.
It is for you I sought to win,
But your love stings like sin.
Why persist in this fight?

To become victor & alone?
But already I’m all alone
Cos’ my dreams are not yours
And for me, defeat lies in yours.
Two hearts, worlds apart

Bound by love; crushed by same.
I desire glory; your fear is shame.
I would risk it all for that one chance.
You’d rather accept what is; not chance.
Your creed: to fantasy, give not flight.

For my every win, U review every fail;
A thousand cannot but leave a trail.
I would freshly set sail, bless me.
Build ships instead, you tell me.
Faithless love, where is your light?

To love & be loved
Every human has craved.
Withers for most to mere fantasy
Or merely a tool to mime ecstasy.
For me? Breath of life; light to my path.

    Hmmm, tough love. You guys were never ment to be. Nice one Kume, and how is Nkechi?


    • Thanks Ella. For me, loving someone who doesn’t love you back the way you would appreciate love prepares you to highly value being loved the way you want to be loved; when you finally permit yourself to experience it.
      & Nkechi, she’s just crazy like Nkechi alone can be crazy 🙂
