a poem by peninnah ng'ang'a, Kenya

"It was a dark and stormy night on the
precipice of fall."
The lights were out,Wind was too mighty

There is no way you could have seen right.

Just because she wore red silk scarf over the leather like i do
Fire& ice' filled the air when she drove past you
Kawasaki Ninja just like mine

Does that mean it was me?

I was out of town that Friday night
Ask your Pops
I gassed at his station

I was not standing on that cliff,lips on his.

I did not cheat on you
why don't you understand?
I will never cheat on you again

At least not with him.

Just because her laughter echoed as loud as mine
Had long legs just like mine
does not mean it was i

Believe me baby,It wasn't me.

(written for a comp.'Allusion')Thanks for reading.
