21st Century African Love

Have you ever felt lonely?

That all you desire is to be held tightly?

Have you ever gone to bed crying?

All night long until morning…

Have you ever felt your heart burning

So hot it even starts shining?

I’ve felt it

Felt it burn so hot

So much so that

I even craved for your dirty whispers

Those whispers

That make me hold you closely

Those whispers that turned my blood black without warning

Black and painfully soar …

Pain so beautifully bitter …

I gaze up at the skies and wish to see you later.

They called you a shooting star..

I see how wrong they were..

For you are no mere star

Because you are my everyday rockstar.
