A Poem About Life & Relationships
My dreams are made of kisses and cuddles
And nightmares of no mrs and toddles
Reality is altered in a carbonated fizz
But I’m torturously lonely in this vivid whizz
A bizness man is what I dream to be
To be distracted from the love that you have for me
You claim to love me so dearly
But will you leave me one day seemingly seamlessly
I’m 28, but 18 seems so miles away
Thoughts of you got me feeling like (it was) yesterday
Only to live everyday like it was my last (to)day
With fingers crossed for dates on a Saturday
Waking up has me questioning
my existence and hopes of a better ‘morrow
With gold, myrrh, and some kissing in
To never have, and always yearn for more
I always dream for another me
One with love, respect, sense of dignity
Pushing me to a better me
Beyond the ‘mares, dreams, but in reality.
You can hear this poem here! The first rendition, ‘Duet’ is a beautiful, mellow, soft poetic rhythm, and the next ‘Rap’, is more of a Migos/Future style version.
I started writing this poem early this year after taking a short poetry course on Udemy. In this piece, I attempt to contrast interesting ideas and experiences. One of them is my desire for a relationship, which is often in conflict with the fears I have of being in one. Even as this poem is published here, I’m constantly tweaking little bits and pieces to get across my ideas clearly.
Listen/read my first long article here. In it, I discuss my research and academic background.
