The Morning Poem

0d246deThis is not a love story

I saw our silhouettes dancing against the stone backdrop

That is my heart

It is a monument,

It represents a myth that was once true

We flickered with the same intensity as flames in a campfire

 I began to feel warmth inside me, a burning sensation

The monument collapsed the moment you decided

This love wasn’t good enough anymore.

It was then that I truly knew

What it felt like to be heartbroken

A memory of our silhouettes

Danced against the aftermath of your destruction

The stand is a reminder that when you shine a light on our souls

 Only darkness is revealed.

  1. I have never been a fan of poetry sadly, but I do love read nice stanzas, and this is one of those lovely pieces I’ve read. it draws you into the poets darkness but then he tries to make it less overwhelming.

    Excellent work Max.

  2. I love what you do with imagery here. Visual Imagery. How you created these personas using light and shade. Nice one.

  3. I feel you max…it just reminds of someone I thot was gonna be the queenbee but alas nothing worked in that department……so sad!

      • Yes oh they do!!! But I wonder why??? Why can’t we just keep our excesses in check especially “black naija” gay guys….just for the relationship….why c ant we just be patient enough and check to see how the other person feels and sort of put ourselves in his shoes JUST TO LET THE RELATIONSHIP breathe at the initial stage and have a rhythm of it’s own….eish…serious shi!!!
