I have run the race of heart,
Distinctly in different regions and stances.
To walk over anguish and despair after sincere rejections;
And forsake what I wanted to possess.
To live and keep living even when living isn't worth it again.
I know the pain.
Allow me to yearn you what I felt of you
and for you, the day you broadcasted your love,
Through media and casted ear-to-ear rumors.
Would I forget the gossip of us on the streets?
I would lie that I have ditto emotions for you.
My lies are sincere if you would believe.
Very hard to let you go now-
Because of the acquaintance of your visibility after the lies.
Your sweet words that stays aloof the ocean;
Dress and dance with tides to the aesthetic shore.
Do you remember that day you sang melodiously
Like a nightingale, in the once a while twilight?
All these memories are of the villain.
I kept lying to you over and over because of them.
Amaka, both of us tied the ribbons at eve,
But I have forgotten to open up that I never loved you.
I am sorry.
Yours in unfaithful love, but sincere friendship.
