Sometimes I forget how to love
Love is something I learnt to do, like all other people.
Even Jesus used thirty-something years to be on top
Of his love game. Adam, i’m sure didn’t love Eve enough
If he did, why didn’t he bargain with God to take the
Pain of childbirth? Also, I think that’s where we learnt
That love comes with pain, always. But I also think
Love also is being there for someone when the pain
Comes. There were no other but Eve & Adam, I don’t
Believe Adam went to till the earth when it was Eve’s
Time to bring forth their first child. I guess i’m wrong
Then, or maybe Adam just did that to make it up to Eve.
What’s his/her name? I don’t know. If it’s a she, there
Will be no traces of her existence, ever. & the same
Way we forget her, sometimes I forget how to love.
