THE PAIN I CARRY. BY ADEGBITE ARINOLA
Even though my tears speak in my voice,
I still can’t erase those memories.
My heart sink at the thought
Some goodbyes tends to hurt.
Endless tears reflect on my face
As my heart beat on a countless pace.
I love and cherish deep within my heart.
But ignorance won’t keep tearing it apart.
Your sugar-coated mouth blindfolded me
Steadily you scream and yell at me
Was deceived, tortured and bereaved
In your shadow I was trapped.
I should have known from the start.
I seek higher and deeper
Screamed louder and clearer
But all effort to no avail
Our bright light now dimmed and dying.
Your ex down the street is always eyeing.
