Lover’s Banter

Lover's Banter, an original poem by writer, Shauntae Saruwatari.

Him: “You’re my cup of tea.”

Me: “Well take a sip of me.”

Him: “Woman, I will overflow your fountain,

hit the peak of your mountain,

swim deep within your ocean, and

tattoo my love on your soul without you even knowing.”

Me: Man, Oh man, if you are my Adam and I am your Eve,

I will feed you this forbidden fruit, filled with hidden truth, so

that thine eyes may be uncovered.”

Him: “If you are the moon, I am the wolf howls to you.

for I am King but even I shall bow to you.”

Me: “My King I will serve you with the sweetest virtue but

I am not beneath you nor above you. I am right by your side and never will hide when

things get rough.”

Him: “But am I enough?”

Me: “Are you enough? Is that question rhetorical? I don’t need a horoscope to tell me you

are my future.”

Him: “Woman you have mended my heart like suture.”

Me: “Then keep me close.”

Him: And close you shall be.”

Me: “You say that now but in time we shall see.”
