Banana Split

That was it.



It was over.

I so badly wanted to call you and tell you that I love you

I secretly wanted every red blink on my phone to be a message from you

I wanted to tell you that this was a mistake.

That my decision,

Our decision…

Wasn’t a good decision.

That we should still be together.

But then my brain connected to my heart and reminded it:

“This isn’t the right time,”

“You both don’t have time for each other.”

Screw time!

I want to be with you!

But again, I seldom wait before another thought pops into my head

You can’t be in a relationship by yourself,

You need communication,

And you’re not gonna’ get it.

So as much as I wanna’ scream,

As much as I wanna’ shout all the way up to the heavens that:

I insert name here, want to be with you

I can’t…

I shouldn’t…

And I won’t.

Right guy, wrong time,




My heart cannot beat for nothing.

I get all the attention but never from you

Like a nightmare, you torment me

Delve into my subconscious

When you say you will call, but don’t

I don’t even know if it’s because you’re genuinely busy

Or you just don’t care

You choose to call me when you want to talk

Am I just your side bitch?

But I still like you,

Still drawn to you

I can’t say no.

I need someone to brainwash me,

Remind me that I’m suffering,

Because you were older,

I thought you were going to be more responsible

Guess I was wrong.

And now I am stuck.

Do you love me?

Or do you not?

That is the question.

My brain keeps you sane.

My laughter reminds you of the rain,

It’s cool nature takes over your vessels.

My radiance reminds you of the sun,

Hot, but yet needed for you to function.

My body reminds you of the earth,

How my world revolves around yours,

How its cyclical shape reminds you of my curves,

How my hips fit neatly beside yours.

My smile causes you to be dazzled,

constantly amazed at my grace and charm.

My eyes shining brightly act as your lifeline,

So when the glint is gone, so are you.



He looks at her and smiles, he can’t believe his luck.

He found a girl to love, which surpassed his expectations.

He still couldn’t believe, that she had chosen him to love.

Out of all the guys that surrounded her, cause believe me they were numbered,

She saw through his nonchalant attitude, and realised he was a cool dude.

She fought to tear down the walls he built, to guard all of his emotions.

She stuck with him through thick and thin, and that my dear, deserves an award.


She looks at him so lovingly, her heart flutters with him by her side.

She found a man that loves her so, and also loves our Creator.

She can’t imagine living a life without him, cause after all he was a diamond in the ruff,

She fought and fought, she screamed and shouted, to ultimately get what she wanted.

And me oh my it was worth it all, cause here they are engaged.

The wedding day fast approaches, and she is as busy as can be,

But she’s glad she’s found her man, who stands by her without need.
