Francois Groenewald is an author from South Africa. He writes poetry in his spare time.
I Decay In Love
I decay in love
just like a balm would
I release dignity in these moments
I realise that I have to
As a man there is nothing better or greater than a women's eyes
on your heartaches
Whatever the reason may be
There is always a chance of survival
Better to walk straight at the behest of your followers I say
So what dances there in the night?
What makes it so potent?
Or a wide berth given to a small animal?
What can we do in this?
Can we pray or shall we just dance away the fear tonight?
I think we can do both my love
and almost just as I digress comes a small hand
reminding me of death
