by Tabitha N. Munyoki
I have limited your love To the shades so transient Put it in little pink boxes Pegged on my grading of good Of similar taste as that Given by fallen image bearers Thinking I needed to scrub some more Willing my soul Begging it To be a little different A little less me While all of me Had all of you Ingrained With unfathomable love Of a Son dead on a tree Dripping love for eternity
