I've been crying behind your back, darling

Hoping you'd turn round and change your mind

But you've shown you're never moved by tears -

I can as well cry an ocean.

 

In the haze of my tears;

In the midst of this confusion

I've watched the paradise crumble

The paradise we've long called home.

 

It hurts more to think that

Fearing for our children's future

I have wasted a million years

Holding on to a chimera.

 

My faith in you has been this big:

That even when it felt desperate to do so

I still gave you my all.

 

Now that you've walked out on me

And your actions seem decided

Should I torture myself with thoughts of you again?

 

I close my eyes,

Breathe in, and in again,

Then let it out in a gush!

Letting it be gone and forgotten.

 

It's the heart afraid of letting go

And the heart afraid of breaking

That never learns to love again.

 

John M. Wanjora.
