when u say you love me, ~by Olamilekan Sa’eed OA


 

 

when u say you love me,

when u say you love me,
i feel i could open my chest
and show you the disarray that governs me

i wish i could tell you that my face is a sanctuary of forged smiles
and they say love dont live on borrowed huts

when you say you love me,
i wish the wind could speak for me and break this silence..
i wish i could tell you i’ve burnt my heart and inhaled the smoke to live

they say love conquer all things,
but what you don’t have could you possibly give?

when you say you love me,
i wish i could tell you i’m married to my demons and they’ve vowed never to let me go..
i wish i could crawl back into the night and let darkness do justice to my feelings.
