love or convenience

INSPIRED BY THE PLAY "MAN(AND SUPERMAN" BY GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

I sit here
Conflicted by choice
Of following the desires of my heart
Or giving in to the lowly ambitions of an artist.
Yes! Talai!
The man whose look in my eyes
Gives me the shivers of a leaf against the wind
Whose every ord
Not only takes me aback
But also provoking unprecedented reactions
Challenging the(tranquil treasures of my heart.

But wait!!!!
Does not Onesmus give in to my every whim?
Does not his art inspire my intentions to be true?
Yes of course
But who would marry a man
Obsessed to the very point
He forgets not only his dream
But his very worth?
Let him find a girl
Willing to bear with his emotional extremities
While I follow my heart.

Why you may ask
And i will tell you.
Because honestly
I would rather admit my love for Talai
And he persistently denies me
For I would have loved but lost
Rather than follow Onesmus
Where there is no ground for love to flourish
And to have never loved at all.
