the twisting

So i missed a day, yesterday …..trying to write a poem a day is not easy, especially for someone like me whose proces relies so heavily on procrastination… WordPress doesn’t help because you can actually post date your entries, which i was so tempted to do  to make it appear that i had indeed written a poem yesterday…

NKYINKYIM

loving
you is the twisting,
the torment of hope.

the music of the heart,
slowed to a dirge,
with no promise
of a second line
in sight, a soaked
handkerchief
with no more room
for tears.
