Never Again

Hi people! This poem was written for me by a friend, Toluwaleyi Babalobi a.k.a. Bablo. It’s really special to me because I can relate to it, and I’m honoured that he thought me worthy of approving something this beautiful. Enjoy!

Fire in my bones, tears in my eyes
I cry, but no one answers
I’m tired of all the quarrels and lies
Cannot take this any longer
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do you gamble all on a fleeting emotion?
You thought all would work out fine
Where did you get that notion?

You tried your best
But no, it wasn’t enough
He passed all your tests
Where did things go wrong?
The pain is so deep
The hurt like gall
You look at him now and weep
And wonder ‘was I a fool?’

He swore by all that is holy
That he would treat you right
You believed him
And took that headlong plunge
Your love was the stuff of legends
Like sweet wine, it made you heady
You made others jealous
And desirous in turn

You loved him, you really did
He loved you, that much was true
You felt that you could stay that way forever
Growing old and watching your love ripen
Telling stories to your grandchildren
In the cool evening breeze
Watching them muse
On the strength of your love

He made you laugh
Made you skip for joy
You had it all planned out
Your walk down life’s road
It’s all gone
All that’s left are the memories
And the broken heart

‘Never again’, you vow
Would you ever be hurt
‘Never again’, you say
Would you prop your heart on the crutch of love
The pain, the hurt, too much to bear
The sobs, the tears, too much to hide
‘Never again’, a promise
You intend to keep to the end.

(Dedicated to everyone who has ever suffered a broken heart)
