ONE HIT WONDER

 <      >it all started in old 
highfields
           in Harare were love 
never sleeps
           romance that burnt 
jabavu drive
           madness that 
manufactured oneness
           yes my Romeo you 
were
           and your Juliet i was
           and so close you 
would hold me
           tie me with the ropes 
of love
           a romantic web i 
could not escape
           you would kiss me so 
passionately
           as if to quench my 
brains away
           in this chariot of love 
we traveled 
           through streets, 
cinemas, parks and clubs
           and one day distance 
came between us
           slowly we grew 
apart, went our separate 
ways
           armed with 
memories and regrets 
           for ever i will long for 
those days
           cherish all the good 
times we had 
           it was a one hit 
wonder
           one hit wonder is all 
it was

    Lovely poem Odeline! You've painted a oh what so lovely picture of romance -too bad it had to end! (PS what's a jabavu drive?)
