We Never Were. ~ Akram Al Deek {Poem}


We Never Were.

All I want to do
Is curse you.
Curse your sad eyes,
Your tiny poignant eyes.
Your shiny dejected eyes.
All I want to do
Is wake up
And shut you down.
Shut you out
Of my memory.
Swim the shores
And write you poetry.
And become drunk
With your odour.
For I never loved you.
And we never were.
