Suicidal, reclining on a sofa Gazing at his partner’s photo, A handsome friend of mine I got He was by an Overwhelming love smote.
To optimize hers And his pleasure to trim She opted Suddenly to desert him.
Buddy, what weighs So heavily on your mind? Get it off your chest A solution I may help you find!
“This picture-perfect girl Sweet-talked me into love, She playacted As one sent from above. But all of a sudden, Before I had figured it out, A mishap, She dropped off the map. You see, she was ready To flee to Her secret fiancé abroad Simultaneously, All the while grabbing My hand To lead me Along love’s road.
With her fiancé Stashed in The back of her mind, In a manner A lead to her secret I may not find She was aware Our love To a halt Would soon grind However absurd Her act I might find!”
I recited to him A poem from Debebe Seifu, Ethiopia’s famous poet, Cognizant a well prescribed Poem is an antidote "You served me An asinine chalice Concocted of Honey and gall, Which at one shot I gurgled down my throat. Your fingers caressed me To make me forget my pain To lullaby me in to a sleep Upon awakening from My hallucination to get myself In a thorny bed again."
Reading, re-reading the poem Laughing out loud, His anguish he soon forgot. So make note, To normalize a mood swing Reading poems is a nice thing.
