Gently you hide
Under the blanket of loneliness
Zipping sorrows
Of how girls littered
You with disgrace

Now thoughts of exit
flow solo in your heart
Now your scrotum reads
essays of hunger

Now your mind
Roam in a vacuum
Of loneliness

When shall you leave,
the room of singleness?
And join the race of those
Who had long
forsook the lorn

For the Single Not (paired)
Calmly you breathe happiness,
Betwixt the decorum
of her loins
Away you chase coldness

Like a mango
Hiding behind the shadow
of a leaf
For shield against
Furious stones

You hide mid the flesh
of standing mountains,

You hide under
the emotions
Of an open home,
a river of flowing

For when shall coldness take it leave
For the cock has already crowed.
