The past few days have been hard to deal with. I have lost passion, feel like a dry wind that has no direction; empty, lost and confused. Emotions are haunting but am not ready to surrender to the darkness. My soul is a drizzling night, an abandoned bungalow, hollow to the core. This is the time we need each other most, Love. It’s one of those tides, those times when we need to hold on to what we believe in. Am sad that my family scorned you just because you come from a different tribe, but hun, I love your heart. You’re still the one I want to marry.
Forget tradition, it never played part when we were falling in love. I am not ready to let go and you’d kill me if you are. Love has no language and even though it’s hard to face this, God is our only refuge. We can make it if we hold on. I cannot imagine loving someone else because of what you mean to me. Right now our lives have grown so cold. It’s like the sun has become the moon, or it rises half full. You know the virtues we’ve always held. Love is the wind in which our stems are flourishing, remember? We can go back to the start if you want to, coz I surely do not want to reach the end. Maybe with my life, but not with you.
I wonder to whom I’ll be singing love songs if you give up now, recite warm poems and crack nasty jokes. Who will I be day dreaming about and laugh to myself whenever a sparkling memory hits my mind? I’d wish to make you forget all that you have been through for my sake. If anything, it should cement our relationship and not burn it out, coz it’s me you love, not my tribe. And I don’t care where you come from, I just want to be with you.
So wipe your tears and smile at the sun again. I miss your cheeky giggles, how your dimples shape your face whenever you grin. Tell me you’ll stand for us till the last day of our lives no matter the weather. The world is harsh but who said we can’t hack it? What we feel for each other is too beautiful even the angels in heaven could be jealous :-). Right now I just want to hold you tight and promise you that everything will be alright, coz am here, for you. It doesn’t matter what everybody else thinks. As long as I love you.
