zamantungwa 8 June 2011 a poem a day challenge Comments Off on wanting by zamantungwa

sorry
didn’t mean to
hamper you with my
wanting
it’s just that my
desire cripples me
winds me up
causing me to be demanding
but i won’t help it
cause in this cold city
a woman forlorn grows
too many thorns
that even rosy scents
can’t mask the putrifying wounds
so forgive
my burning yearning i
only wanted shelter
from this cold city
in your embrace
