First Love

Written by: Tumelo Mogotsi

the one i love refuses to love me back
screams with joy to another
and whispers nothing to me
stares and mumbles
something uncomprehendable

But i long for his attention
seek for his voice
found his tolerance
and was rewarded with his vengence

i silently beg
turn around and notice
the girl sitting beside you
and...
evoke the pain that strangles mine heart
