You Are Lost

By Isaac Mruma

To you dada.

It’s the days that matter,

for we are unable to chat

in the language we had.

 

When I look at you

and see my pay – slip

in your eyes,

I feel empty

and sapped.

 

Your glance, sister,

is to me the measure

of the heat of the dough

in my pocket.

 

Never are passions cool,

to you I am now a tool,

and all my wage is now the fare:

I ride on your throbbing kisses.

 

It is you I accuse,

because your love is lost,

and you only touch me

with the tenderness that asks

where my wallet is.

 

It is to you dada,

that my pen tears the pad,

For I only see your love

focused on my purse,

with your passions

chasing my bank account.
