2 femmes noires sérieuses

By Annick Brisbane Agbo

When it comes to you 

The memories got my chess into pieces

They say time flies but you keep breaking its wings2 personnes sous un parapluie la nuit

When you let go while I am still holding on 

I think I need some closure to survive 

What’s broken can’t be whole anymore

I miss the times that we never had 

I miss the times we almost shared

I was wrong to think I am right


So I take it all back

I know it sounds dramatic, but that just how it feels 

When it comes to you 

I don’t want to lose control

I just want to be wanted…
