Probably for Lovers

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Hey guys,

Is it just me or is the weather in Nairobi for lovers?

I have not written good love poetry for a while (in like forever), so here is my(first) shot at it!

Grab some tea and something to keep you warm while at it!

No.
Is not a bad word.
No.
Is not necessarily my favorite word.

You don’t know
That the truth behind my no
Resonates with my favorite Pompi song “I don’t want to break your heart
There’s no insurance policy for that”
No!
I am not going to treat your heart as a sport
Why should I love you out of convenience?
Why should I think it’s okay to play your heartstrings and yet this is something I don’t want fully into?
At least not yet.

No!
I don’t want to fall in love with the person hiding in you
I don’t want to hide with you
For you, I’m deliverance.
For me, your captivity!
So no,
I don’t want to get in this with you and then get tired of pushing you away
I want to let you in
And let love be.
And let love simmer
over our bones, home, and land
Before it marinates in our souls
No!
a man cannot be the reason why my heart is on fire
but
maybe our love will;

it’s weight,

full enough to set us and the entire sun ablaze!

Like I was saying
No!
Is not a bad word
Not necessarily my favorite word.
I am not sorry for my honesty
I’m way too old for that.

    Intersesting this…

    “No!
    a man cannot be the reason why my heart is on fire
    but
    maybe our love will;”

    This got me wondering… A love separate from its giver or recipient?
