The Visitation

“You can’t make homes out of human beings” – Warsan Shire

You visit the man you love.
But he does not love you back.
You kiss him
Like you are trying to fill all of yourself into him
Because your body is too painful to continue to inhabit.
You wish he swallows your heart with just this kiss
Because you are tired of spitting out teeth
From all the beatings your heart endured while trying to save an anorexic love.
You let him hold your hands
To avoid them from doing lonely things.
You leave.
Brush your teeth.
You do not want the taste of other women to linger in your mouth.

  1. The theme and idea of the poem, very fantastic. Sounded very emotional too (in a matured).

    I feel you could have been written the lines better. Some lines were too long for me too.

    But in all, I feel like the poem came from somewhere remotely deep. Keep writing. I like your style.

  2. @ayomitans An old poem I posted on here

    1. @bugganni, this does look old…as if you were just emerging into the very excoting descriptive powers of your latter poems. But it still contains you…
