Turbulence of Love

We sang the songs of sorrow
And danced to the mournful tune
Where did the promise go
To hold and to keep?

Life is but a motion
Since you left without a word
I gave you my heart in worship
You threw it back in pieces
I gave you my love freely
You accepted it without passion
Now the reality is obvious
The past was placed on the altar of worship

I am caught in the turbulence of love
The pang of pain is potent
My heart, trapped in the sham of love
Mourning the phoney love
I am like a ship without the rudder
Sinking in the turbulence of love.

  1. Very powerful poem Oseyemi!! Raw with deep emotion!! You'll go places with these poems and blogs. You gotta start thinking of pulling them together into a book or something. Well done! KC
