“Love Apart” — A Poem by Blessing Chinenye David

Just as gentle as a dove
As innocent and ambitious
as an eagle
As weak as a snail.

I sat and waited
Waiting to behold a true lover.

Yes, waiting to be accompanied
to the realm of true love
By he that’s of an imperfect heart.

Then, in the midst of my loneliness
Comes he
with a hopeful smile,
And a promising look of true love,
to take me away,
to the very realm of love.

I hesitated not
to sit up and kick off
I was not startled
by the strategic game
of love in my before
I could long for more.

Then I drew closer,
To feel his warm arms,
With our lips together,

I tested and trusted,
I succumbed and concord
to the dance tune of love.

It was an unforgettable
experience of love.
Ever fresh in my memory.

I thought it would last forever.
Oh! I never knew it had been fake fantasies
All these while.

I couldn’t believe we broke up.
Neither could I believe it’s over now.
In just a twinkle of an eye.

Will I ever fall in love again?
Oh! I’m scared
Scared of this thing called “LOVE”.

For it is like a two-edged sword
It heals a broken heart and
Breaks a healed heart as well.

I was taken out of my weary shell
To be left in an abyss of loneliness again.

My heart is now in so much pain
My tears are falling like pouring rain
I can no longer sleep a full night.

He broke my heart
When he said that it was over.

In just a twinkle of an eye
We were torn apart.

We are no longer together.
What happened to forever?

No one can save me from the dark’s might
This time there will be no light
I’m not going to fight.

There’s no reason to
When I did fight, it was for you.

Suddenly, you left me to be alone.
Our love was torn apart.

Your love for me died
In the combating field of infidelity.

Its death was accessorised with an absurd hatred for me.
So I might fight in vain.

But just know:
I loved you then,
I love you still.
I promise
I always will.

I don’t know why
we had to say our goodbyes
but I’ll love you till the day I die.

My heart is broken,
but I still have hope.

One day
we might get back together.
Maybe next time will be forever.
