Is it possible to stop thinking about you?
Is it possible to totally forget you?
Is it possible to get you out of my mind?
Like, be immune to the sweetness you command
Cos the way you fill my thought is quite enormous
Not that I’m complaining, I’m just curious

Was it I that opened my heart to thee?
Asking you to let yourself in
That you now sit, legs across the table
Making yourself feel so comfortable
That you have now taken residence
Making your presence known and felt
Remind me, in case my mind betrays me
Not that I mind, I’m just wondering.

Or is it you that crept into my heart
At a time men sleep at night
Filling it with all your goodness
Dispelling the loneliness there
Playing the queen to this king
Not that it matters though, I’m just asking.

So how is it gonna be?
What do we do about this?
Now that it’s obvious you are here
Do we pretend Love hasn’t appeared?
Do I lie it isn’t what I always wanted?
Or do I drive you out, un-celebrated?
Knowing you’ll only go with a part of me?
Not that I’m clueless, I just want us to be real.

Or do I draw you closer?
Show you the inner chamber
Inscribe your name on a diamond ring
Kneel on the ground before you
Asking that we seal this once and forever
Not that I’m un-decisive, I just want this to be mutual.

I am #theImisiOluwaNo matter how long you deny it, a day comes when you’ll have to finally admit that Love; the only thing is that it may have been long gone!
