Poem: One-ended Mirror
By Ines Makuza & Luther.O
You light my fire
You were my desire
I gave you my all
But you let me fall
Unlocks phone, dials you,
I miss your voice
No response to my call
You probably don’t wanna be bothered
Two times texting
“Hi, are you busy, do you care at all?”
Do I not entertain you?
As I once was able to?
Guess I’m just the past
Did you find your future?
Been a painful start of the year
learning to spell Luther without you
Makes me sound bitter, but you try
spelling Luther without her.
I’m an unfinished puzzle without you
They don’t offer treatment for the being
of the inner
That’s why they would credit my
depressed streaks as an ungrateful
What we had fades away
In my sights it grows thinner
And you simply get bigger in the world
you take by storm.
Forget me, right?
I jumped floods to get through you
You were the hurricane I should’ve saved
You drowned me.
