HO HO HO! LAST MONDAY UNTIL CHRISTMAS. Let the countdown begin. I almost forget that today is Monday. I still have four more days to go before my annual leave yet already my brain is in leave mode. All Monday are for poetry. I started writing poetry back in high school and like many, I never had the courage to share what I wrote with others. Blogging made it easy for me to just hide behind typed words and share my life. I wrote this poem titled “Dear Boyfriend” few months after I met my boyfriend. In two months time, we will be celebrating two years together. Guys! Two years is a major to me. I have been blessed and happy since day one I met this guy. Honestly, I didn’t believe one can love and be loved equally and unconditionally. I found love, friendship, family and personal growth in him. I love him.
You found me and bathed me
You found and dressed me in this colorful leafy dress I’m wearing
You gave me earrings so big they carry many untold stories
Some you share seated with a gaze so sweet I wet my pants
Remove the barrier glued to your face
Let me scar a part of your innocence
Juice your past mistakes and allow me to drink what I can stomach
Let me choose to have all of you
The heavily dressed salad I serve to you, may it fulfill your soul and love you more
Continue to paint me with those glossy night visits
This is our novel
Be the lead
… and maybe one day I will share written word dedicated to my husband. This is only chapter one.
Thank you so much for the visit. let me know if you enjoy Poetry Mondays and please so share some of your writings in the comment box too.
