A LOVE TURNED SOUR | Ololade Adeyemi


Loving you is a feeling I would love to cherish

A passion I want nothing more than to relish

Your gentle love I have always longed to tend

But cold feelings I always get from you at the end


Now my nights are so lonely

My dreams so empty

My heart keeps calling for something i could never have



I try so hard to keep my heart

But that act keeps tearing my heart apart

Referring me back to the actual fact

That in my heart you have made an unforgettable impact


Now, you have shattered my dreams

Dampened my love

Hurt my feelings

Oh my dear you have frozen my heart


We both claimed to love one another

And prayed that our love would go stronger

But we ended up cold in love

which was not how we felt when we first fell in love

  1. This is a brilliant piece. And the author is an excellent poet. I recently had a chat with her about her love for writing poetry. I’m glad to finally get to read one from her.
