»I Love You«

by Clem Squeeza Bee Mdue, June 7, 2017

Love is a cliché
only when done wrong.
A stage set right plays out
the best act of love.

My love for you is tattooed
in my heart and etched in my brain.
I thirst for your love like a Vampire
thirsts for human blood.

In your absence, I miss you but
I look in to the skies as they try
to imitate that twinkle in your eye
and the earth thunders your name
which brings a smile to my face...

My love for you covers your imperfections
that is why you perfect for me.
Lets not let our love escape our doting embrace.

I Love You

»Why Me?«

My mother's womb warm as it is, I can't wait to get out / To mingle with the world / To join my peers as we explore. / Its time to leave my 1st home now, we cut the umbilical chord as everyone awaits my arrival. / Majestically I arrive only to be greeted by sad faces. / This was not what I was promised.  sign in to read more »

*Dear Baby Mama* / / Dear Baby Mama please let's have a life with no drama. / I loved you and I still do, I mean you gave me the greatest gift, a child. / Now all we have to do is help her grow. / We don't need to hold hands but we do have to hold her hands. / We failed at love but we can't fail at this  sign in to read more »
