Losing is a poem about lost love and the feelings that ensures.

They say the eye is the light of the body.
I never knew it understood the plight of blind people until I lost you.
Losing you was losing my eyes. I lost the light of my life.

Every single thing that made me happy was you. I’ve never felt so lost.
I’m so undecided about a lot of things lately.
Things like who to talk to,
who to befriend,
where to go,
what to do,
how to move on.

Losing you was loosing my legs. I’m so alone,
I don’t know my right from my left,
I don’t know what to wear,
how to apply my nail polish
or even tie my shoe lace

I’m like a crippled blind man
so desperately trying to find his way.

Why did you have to leave me.
I never knew anyone would be this important to me.

Losing you was loosing me.

Hi guys, thanks for reading my post. My name is Shodayo Itunuoluwanimi Oluwadunmininu. I was born on the 18th of December in a beautiful year to an amazing Christian family of 7, where I proudly hold the position of the 4th child 😉

Presently, I am a student of Philosophy at the University of Lagos, Akoka, Nigeria. I graduated from Queens College, Yaba.

I started writing at the age of 15. I didn't know what I was doing at that time. But my friends in school would ask to read whatever I wrote. I just knew it made people laugh and they could relate well to whatever I wrote. I still don't know the exact genre I write but I hope you continue reading my posts and sharing your thoughts in the comments section.

Thank you
