The campus series Poetry. Edition 2.

I understand that you are all waiting for episode 2 of “The campus series of love stories”…Yah, its on its way here. Msichoke kungoja. Inakuja.Ni kubwaa. Ni kalii🔥🔥🔥.

Meanwhile, i decided to do this poem, “The desperateness blow”. It is a love poem that addresses confusion after a broken heart story. Whereby the subject, instead of moving on with life after a heart break, she stands undecided waiting for someone who doesn’t seem to be coming back.
Here it goes: 

When I met her during the winter
She seemed to have been affected
By the below-zero temperatures of winter
She was standing all alone in that lonely place
She looked desperate and like she had no one to rely on
She didnt know of a way to follow
For she seemed not to have ever gone through
Any of the two ways that were ahead of her.

I approached her on that same day
And wished to come to her aid
For she seemed lost
Maybe I would have given her a direction to her destiny
Of which I knew I would do pretty well
I would have shown her the easiest way to get there
For I knew what lose of direction felt like
I knew how it felt like when you set on a journey
With someone and they end up leaving you behind.

Instead of listening
And internalizing my words
My advice on the route that she’d rather follow
She neglected
And considered the opinion vague
She chose to stand and wait for her lost destined partner
To come and show her the way home
Not bearing in mind that
Once you are left behind on the road to destiny
You are most probably replaced
A different destiny partner takes over.

So last winter went
Summer came and went
It is another winter now
And when I passed through that cold, lonely place
I saw her still standing there
Desperate than before
She seemed hopeless
The flow of events must have had her downcast
What I refer to as a “desperateness blow”.
