Poetry

LOVE By Hamidat AbdRahman

Written by Editor

Dictionary says its a feeling of intense attraction
A feeling of trust and security
A feeling of care and mercy
True?
Maybe, maybe not

To enter into a connubial state, I say its not enough
You must have learnt how to manage in all situations,
If not, why dissolution? why separation?

Maybe if its about cherishing one another
Which entails blissdom and not blissom
Treatment with tenderness and affection
Nurturing with care
Protection and comfort
Cherish “the one”
Create a space for liss and bliss in your midst
And let away any threat of melancholy

Love? Nay! its just a feeling
That comes naturally
But can fade eventually
If things are not handled carefully

Imperfect we are, the creatures of Allah
By cherishing one another, we’ll all live in tranquillity
And abatement resumes the sphere of divorce.
