MISPLACED LOVE

MISPLACED LOVE

You’ll know someone is THE ONE

If your heart knocks your ribcage when they’re near

This Sandra says

*

 My heart yearns for you alone

My soul craves you, Ekene

She says

*

Anytime I am around you, I feel safe

Don’t you feel same? She wants to know

I nod

*

I love you Ekene, I can die for you

Do you love me too? She asks

I nod

*

 Then Kelvin enters the room, bare-chested

And just like that, I unwrap myself from Sandra

Gawd! My heart is racing.

    This cracked me up. Sandra is busy seeing her perfect man, whereas her perfect man has eyes only for another man.

    Wow very insightful. This calls for a deep appreciation of bisexuality and men on dl. U can be married to one person while in love (lust) with another. For gay men its an eternal struggle for balance
