REFUSED TO LISTEN.(POEM by Philomena N Okeke)

I had a crush on him.

He crushed my soul.

And I crushed his soul.

Parents advice no longer mattered.

I kissed School goodbye.

He kissed School goodbye.

Call it disappearance or elopement.

It lead to Sin City.

At least not for us.

Marriage or Wedding not necessary.

I do not want my tummy to grow.

My tummy started to grow.

He said that I am healthy.

I say no it’s baby.

He denied my big tummy.

He started to hit.

I don’t understand the hate.

I thought we are in love.

Are you my crush?

My love is gone.

Prayed and cried.

It is finished,gone.

Come back my love.

Come back to to me.

I am still in love.

While I sat in the dust.

I miss your kisses.

I accept your imperfection.

I accept your failures.

Accepted our stupidity.

Please come back.

I need you.

But cannot find you.

Mom please forgive me.

To err is human and to forgive is divine.

Returned home.

Mom forgave.

Had a son.

Yes a son.

Named after him.

Returned to school.

Later .

Much later.

Had a life.

Had a home.

With someone.

Wedding of my dream.
