But why The Coffee Dates?


The Lovers

You Can’t hide love, Social strata is no ligature,
The battle began, thank you Mack Zuckerburg,
The conversation grew, the feelings crossed the bridge,
And the coffee date happened!

Tall she was and she is, Brown she was and she is,
What a smile! Oh My! I love the dental gap,
In that middle man coffee house, I received my wife to be,
A hug I desired, for sure she did give it to me,
And the coffee date was here!

“Miss, you may have a seat” I pulled the chair for her,
Mmmh! Here we are, strangers- sharing a cup of coffee,
Ma’am (I love this name)- This is the cyber Roy- Your social media darling,
An enticing smile she gave, ” Huh! You are tall, This Bianca”
And the coffee date progressed!

Two hours plus we spent, we dissected all we could,
The Jungle was toured, we had some understanding,
Every man-” We”- was prepared for the next walk,
She said, ” We need time-time to know each other well”
On the other side, a man on a dilemma- she loves, she loves me not,
But again we need one one more coffee date!

Ways we parted, via phone we shall talk,
Evening came, the chat began,
“Roy, you are a nice guy”
“Bianca, I just love everything about you”
A man must fight, and my best I did,
For my heart needs the missing link,
One more coffee date!

A health chat we shared, steps ahead we moved,
The single me was fading, stamping she had to do!
In solitude for ages, pruning I had to do,
When love knocks, He does all he can to get her,
To mum, I lied, coins for the coffee date I got,
It happened- one more coffee date.

This time- familiar faces- walking together, holding hands,
People stared, assured, assured not-This lady is mine,                                                                                                      More open, more comfortable, more issues,
The vast relationship issue, we traversed,
Again more time she needed- a demoralized man I was,
But why the coffee dates?

The session ended, mad I was running,
Home I walk single, assured am not,
Poems I did, convinced she was not,
But What did she need?
Away from the dates, hikes we went, parks we visited and games we played,
But why the coffee dates?

All we can be is friends- she tells me,
Friendship she values,
She doesn’t want to hurt me,
She wants us to be bonded forever- not in love but in friendship,
Should I give up? Should I soldier on?
I need love not friendship.
But Why The Coffee Dates?

For You Forever Meant Never!

Am one hurt man, a man betrayed by a lady,
In the same wavelength, I believed we were one,
Love,Commitment and sacrifice is what I pledged,
‘Forever you are my one n only’ Your promise it was,
What is the meaning of forever?

Did you really love me?
What is it that you saw in me and I no longer have it?
Was it love? Was it material things?
Where are you? I need the answers,
Now I suppose,Forever meant Never.

The feelings I had for you,
The sacrifices I made just to make you happy,
No single day you suffered under my arms,
I covered you during the rain,
I gave you warmth during the cold,
And the best you could do is betray me,
Betray me with your ex.

image

I gave you love,you gave me a smile,
A smile to lure me,use me and walk away,
You no longer in my life, the memories are intact,
The separation was painful,the insults broke my trust,
I learnt alot, You were a mistake,
For you forever meant Never.

You played it cool with me, you build confidence in me,
Your smile blindfolded me,
My trust n fidelity has brought me down,
Am now crippled,crippled by your lies,
My family n friends are the only warmth,
For you forever meant Never.

I wanted nothing more than you,
Nothing more than your love,
Nothing more than your trust,
Nothing more than to commit to you,
I have to accept n say BYE.

image

Am crushed like eggs,
My soul pains just because of you,
A viper you are,the venom is in my blood,
For you forever meant never

Bye Bye… I wish you well… I wish you good.
