Bedside Talk with a Lonely Wife

posted in: Ink Africa | 0

Bedside lamps only shine light on my pain

Throw rays on unrustled sheets on rainy nights

On two pairs of legs that never meet

On tears glistening in the wake of the moon

On bodies whose caress can never light a fire

 

Bedside lamps only shine light on my loss

Throw rays on untouched lace on windy days

On two pairs of hands that can never go south

On tongues that sit in their caves nursing loneliness

On parts that never rise to please me
