Misery

There is a way out of the feeling of misery; change. How hard it is to keep improving. It is almost as if clinging to past wisdom is the only thing we know how to do best. I’ve been disturbed by this before, and even recently. But sometimes the wisdom of yesterday cannot be the […]

A Letter To My Soon To Be Woman

Dear You, I’ve been having funny dreams lately. I see you walking into my life with parachutes and lots of bags – baggage. Yes, I know we are about to fly, but are you ready to carry my luggage too? I’ve been born and raised in closed boxes and where I am now is a […]

My Unwritten Poem

There have been poets before the sun rose today Who weaved words and gave them life eternal But you, You are my unwritten poem No words I find that befit the crust of your existence I tell you, How I wish I could play the orutu, But your presence in silence is music enough To […]

Means To The End

  People look at me smiling and laughing all the time, but to some, I’m a serious bald headed man with a pale life and a very silent world. There’s something that life has taught me, that I cannot rely upon other people’s happiness to be happy myself. You can’t share what you don’t have.I […]

Single And Waiting Upon The Lord

I get bewildered when preachers tell single men and women to wait upon the Lord for spouses yet give no further advice on how exactly to do that. It results to passiveness on the part of the receivers of the message who end up thinking that God is gonna drop them someone to love like […]

Only Yesterday

  There was a sun that shone on my shoulder Her friendly rays sparkling Our hands flirted, unashamedly Drawing love hearts in the profound air The grass on which our souls dined Flowery, Drinking the enriching dew That spilled its wondrous magic Upon our naked innocence Only yesterday I sat by the ocean shore Watching […]

Curved Painting

  Have you ever been to a well with talking waters That breathe life into your soul with silent words That love feels as sure as the sun in a hot desert But can get as cold as dew on a gloomy morning   Have you ever met your heart in someone’s And thought that […]

Be My Poem

Could you shape words into lillies Metaphors into feelings Could you write me a poem With the colours of your heart in it See my soul through a simile And name my smile Or sing of me in a sonnet Can you see the ocean in my eyes Its waters lie deep Anticipating your allusions […]

I Want To Think

I want to think thick thighs Like a highway to some heaven Smooth with sensation That brews drunk souls to oblivion I want to think small lips, kissable That would make me drink From a cup of honey saliva Whatever wetness brings Let it do, let it do I want to think orange round breasts […]

SARAH

  It was the last thing I saw coming That look in your eye Smooth sail That smell I feel when it has rained The soil’s scent, delight Your heart’s a walking light You are the greatest story of submission Days come upside down And in my sorrow, your solace Gives me a warm soothing […]
