A Poem by Funke Kolapo

The other side of love

Two sides to life

Two faces

Two edges

And so are you

Underneath your beauty

You hid your thorns

A double faced monster

Posing as a beauty

You crept in

like a shadow

You are a plague

Seeping through the pores

Poisoned the blood

Wormed your way to the heart

Ravaged the whole body

Beyond repair

You left passion

Where your hands touched

Only to replace them

With delightful pain

Smother you I should

When you were in me

With the heat of my passion

And my burning gaze

Silence me you should

When you had the chance

For all you left behind

Is a wounded snake

Yes indeed, some attractive coloured sweets often leave a most unpleasant taste!

An intriguing, cleverly written poem of the perils and issues of involvement with those of superficial character!

In my burning gaze of your page, I have left behind replacement. A wonderful poem...:)...................
