Vintage, Your Love Is by Siphiwe Hlongwane

Poem

vintage
your love is
my darling
a taste of sweet wine
matured in time
your antiquated ideas
and their texture
though old fashioned
some may say
are my new religion
in you, i have found my salvation
your eyes wise
and full of the wisdom
telling the sacred truth
of the lost scriptures
are my favourite read
like a limited edition
with the smell of old skin
each page i turn of you
is another wonder revealed
dear darling
god doesn’t make them like you anymore
so
this here heart of mine
wants you to keep
forever
for you to stay
i pray
