Refuel your love (New love poem 5 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

If your love machine
Is grinding to a stop;
Check the engine;
It may need refueling;
As you sharpen your cutlass
When it’s blunt from use,
To render it sharp
And performant,
Refill your energy tank
When its level drops,
In order to re-energize;
That also you must do
With your love tank;
When it’s running dry;
You have to refuel;
Allow not your fuel level
To drop too low;
Your love engine
Must continue to turn;
And effeciently too.
