Love tears are sweet
Like honey liquor
Shed in happiness and murky moments
Inevitable like death in life
Parting paints painful patterns
On lovers’ hearts’ books
Love is so binding
Yet forbidding when heartbreaking
I once received a calabash
Frothing with love like traditional beer
From a skilled brewer
My folly drained it with a quick wish
I gobbled it with a gush
I wished for more
But the giver had fled
Left drunk in sweet tears of love...
Oh! She was never to return!
