Promise In The Dark
So we grew as days go by
by Musa Ndhlovu
Expecting the only day that comes
To level us up: My turn came
And I found no body but you
By my side. Surely the truth flowed
In the dark. Words falling like
Water from a clef landing on
Your heart: I hoping that they will
Flow in you forever. What goodness
Is in the dark? The presence
Of two opposite genders sited, shearing,
Out laying the truth that will lead
Them to make a promise in the dark.
Mixed up emotions flowed just as
Fat on a hot pen till one said
Stay by my side and I will stay by your side.
That's the promise in the dark.
