Be My Love: A poem based on Alice Walker's The Colour Purple by Supriya Kiran

I again wrote to God about this baffle
May be it seemed to him a trifle.

I lost the hope
Didn’t try to cope.

On one fine day
My eyes met with sparkling eyes
Eyes full of love
Eyes full of care
The moment was freezed
I found my letters answered
The eyes made me realize my worth
Now I no longer accept what is put forth
I realized love was not Albert
Love was ShugShug Avery”
Who made me me live life in my way

She made my life
I made her my wife

Now I carry love in my bones
Light in my smile

Now I’m not silly
Only Celie “happy Celie
