The Love I Never Knew



would it not be madness

to say I’m in love with imagination?

the heartfelt breath that appears

in the shallow snores of my dreams

upon my stone-pillow at bethel.


I have seen hearts melt for beauty

and feet slid for virtues

but all I got lost to, is a breeze

in the shallow thoughts of my imagination

somewhere in the plains of Abia

which spread over the valleys of my brain –

a folktale of my nightmares.


I have heard of penpals, and pen friends

on blank sheets of empty promises

on papers that hold the liquid state of the future

but I have jilted Cupid

and stolen from him – a Pen Love –

this again, is madness.


tell me, are you short and stumpy?

long and slender, white or black?

I have lost my heart to believe a lie

in the presence of sanity, I have chosen madness

and say, “art thou a manly creation or just a breeze?”



I ask,

“is Cupid stupid?”
