This Is Not A Love Poem – Poem By Sanusi Emmanuel
The day began with us,
And now the night has fallen on us –
How better can we paint
An interesting love story.
I write not love poems,
Hence allow me break this words into
Pills coated with pain and sadness,
Pills acting as facades – housing multiple
Shapes of joy cum happiness.
Perhaps, the reason this pill is hard to swallow.
I tell you; clench your fist,
Close your eyes,
Open your heart, and proceed to swallowing this pills…
Then you’ll realize, how much
Love resides between the lines of these poem.
Then you’ll realize
This isn’t a love poem,
But love itself.
I Am Emmanuel
