I did not mean to toy with you,

My plan was simple and unedited;

if l break the iron bars of my solitary confinement,I may experience unconditional love again,

Love which is patient and kind,

An endless love.

But l am scared to fall like a leaf,

All because the last time i fell, my feelings drowned to the bottom of the ocean,

I struggled with every fiber of my being to swim to shore,

But l did not mean to break your heart

I did not know how to let you go, because, l loved you,

I adored you like no other.

I can’t help blaming my stone heart,

When you closed our last chapter.

When you close your eyes to sleep, remember l cherished your face,

I will also love you from the corner of my bed.

If you demand equity, come with clean hands.
