Hidden love

Agbaingya Luseter 2002 (Gboko)



A painful part of love
Bringing sleepless nights to some
And driving others crazy
As it remains unexpressed.

Seems like a climax before the beginning of a love story
Making some to daydream
And others thrown into deep imaginations

The fear and courage to unveil it
Has left others heart broken
As they ended up breaking their hearts.
Instead of breaking the ice that hides the love.

A burden it becomes
As time passes and others are left with the fight to convince themselves they don't care despite all their cares
Just to let go of the burden
