Last night (around 9pm) I was talking to my good friend Liam and he suggested I write a poem from one word; orange. We couldn’t possibly have imagined the twist our conversation would take.
[21:22, 25/05/2015] Nala: ORANGE
I’ve never been able to find a word that full rhymes with orange,
But the oompa loompas never seem to be bothered by that.
They make their chocolate and sing within range,
Even though Willy Wonka is as a crazy as a bat.
[21:26, 25/05/2015] William: Like a bat?
That’s a shocker
I always thought the crazy one was the Joker?
Black Crimson speaking words so electric they shock ya
I cant do poetry by chance
Unless it’s a game of poker
[21:31, 25/05/2015] Nala: Better get your cards right
And face straight
Your skirts too tight
But please don’t let’s fight
[21:34, 25/05/2015] William: A fight ain’t right
I love you so much it’s outta sight outta mind,
Follow the sound of my beating heart,
It’s pound for pound thuds of
Unleashed love serenade you
It’s with it that I chose you
You were made from me for me,
You will forever be my one and only.
[21:37, 25/05/2015] Nala: One and only?
You say that like you own me.
Your said love must be blinding,
I want you so bad it’s maddening
I wish I could believe in your reasoning
[21:43, 25/05/2015] William: My reasoning is made evident
By your want for me that’s resonate
Must I pursue you resilient?
Just so you could shoot me down 9 times like 50 cent?
Or has you heart grown so dark like Malificent?
It’s evident that I must place your heart in the heavy seasoning of my adoration.
[21:47, 25/05/2015] Nala: Adore me! Love me!
Make me believe it
Oh! That in you I can be free.
Love as you see fit.
But love me anyway
Take my heart to unseen places,
always by night and always by day.
That I may stop hiding behind my various faces.
[21:51, 25/05/2015] William: I can see your real face
Why must you make it a race?
Though you have the lead
I will win in the end.
Why?because am the head.
The one who’s job it is to bring home the bread,
Set the grade for your life in Christ,
And the 2nd shepherd after the one who’s sentiments and agreements are said in Grace,Love and Peace,
So tell me again why do you run from me?
[21:55, 25/05/2015] Nala: I’m scared I’ll hurt and cry and bleed,
I’m scared that I might be less than you need.
I run from you so I can find myself
So I can be free to take my heart off the shelf.
I’m scared I can’t give you what you need,
Or offer what it takes to plant the right seed
[22:05, 25/05/2015] William: What I need doesn’t matter
I’ll say this without a stutter
You are all I’ve ever wanted and more
Didn’t mean to flatter but rather scatter those fiendish
Thoughts of being inadequate Check the aggregate of my love as compared to your resistance..
It far outweighs so fighting is futile.
It took me a while but I’ll finally say this,
You are mine and I am yours
Heavenly goals of the Lord of Lords
Brought to life as mine and yours.
With those words I close this chapter
Gates closed no being can open
My lover and best friend it is the end.
