BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.


He's always busy, well making life for us
But everytime my cellphone vibrates,
I rush over to it, coz I know he missed me;
He actually doesn't just miss me but us.
What a wonderful soulmate.

Us only have one language: the heart,
We listen to each other, not missing a syllable
Even without an utter or whisper,
We still exchange messages, hard for anyone else-
That's how good it feels for us.

To us, the common four-letter word means more,
Yes, more than any of you can imagine;
We go stupid with each other: kiddish
We splash sand all over our faces on beaches: fun
That's how it has and will always be; we're us.

I almost skipped it, but how could I?
We finish each other's sentences; yes
That's how I remember everything on his order list
Favourites, do's and don'ts....
This feeling though crazy: love.
