NOT THERE

absent 02

Just emptiness,

That’s all there is left when you not there

No completeness,

The way I feel when you absent

I MISS YOU

Miss you 02

I miss you

I miss you bad

I miss you so much I can’t lie

This past week I have been to a

Place of deep sorrow and back

Where seeds were almost sown

And I made sure there were no reap backs

 

The past week has had you upset and sad

And me crazily confused and saddened

 

I missed you even amidst the storm

As I prayed on for days of norms

 

I missed you till I cried

Tears poured down my face

Shamelessly as I wiped

 

I missed you for there was this hole

I knew not how it got there

Then found out I had been digging

Them up in past years

 

I miss you I miss you so

A pain I caused to my soul

 

I miss you my beauty queen

Missed you so much till pain

Almost called me a friend

But I hoped as hard as I missed you

And prayer brought me back to you

 

I miss you I miss you so

I never want to hurt you again

And let such a resentment grow

 

I miss you my love,

Miss you till I lost myself

A week of loneliness did me in

Miss you 01

COMPROMISE

Compromise 02

My gal knows she intelligent

But I know too, n that’s why am here

Situations like this, for this man

Already got me going:

She’s like don’t change me

For I am made me

This aint change baby

Its called love maybe

If only we see ourselves together n crave it

This aint no submission

Its all about loving with a passion

A passion to know what I want

Yet know what I hate

N u understand that, that don’t gotta matter

Even if u don’t take it

But you gotta compromise cos you got the jones so

Then I imagine with jingles in my head

The butterflies are meant to be a tickle, yeah

Fluttering beauties, reminding me you pretty

For its so silly if I don’t accommodate you

Not change, but date you with a sense of belonging

like, I Like you with purpose

Love you with no repose

And that’s what this is

Me loving you enough to compromise for

Till my eyes turn blind to what the world faults you on

For if love be blind, then it means my appreciation of your mistakes

And for you I ride with high stakes

For its about us, then you

My change for you don’t make me weak

Or make me drop my values

No! but they make me reach my peak

In this thing we call the blues

So my heart, my darl, I would never change you

But for me to love you

I would always compromise for you

Even if I have to catch a grenade for you

and thats how much I love you

compromise 01

 

Compromise 03

 

Limitless love

free love

A forest of thoughts and life

The wild so free unshackled by angels

set loose to roam

Free to explore free to run the wild

Free to become me and have a content persona

Pacing with the wind in my face

With the warm feel of its embrace caressing over my body

Making me welcome and whole all in one

Whispers of my name, whispers so faintly spoken

Saying, “I have set u free”

Free to love and be loved, free to need and be needed

Free to give and to take

Only you give me this freedom

In that wild heart of yours

Only you my angel

free love 2

TO CHOOSE OR NOT

election 2015 2

TO CHOOSE OR NOT

Another political leap year turned the corner

Bearing its weighted burden;

Parties to attend and belong to,

Identities to portray,

Lies to be sermonized from rally pulpits,

Partisan lured by some kind of cake slice;

Sour or molded

Epistolized eulogies and backlash color the media,

Trained zombie parrots take to screens,

Charlatan Patriots yell mantras at screeching levels

While taking bold steps backwards,

Lukewarm citizens exonerate their rites, crowing:

“why bother”,

Commerce flirts around with inflation

Fraternizing to ingrain poverty,

Soiled hands and deep pockets make mergers,

Anxiety calls out names

And makes even the brave kneel to pray,

Hopes are cast like a die

Gamble to choose the thought lesser evil,

Candidates stoop to cheaply decorated stabs,

Polling booths the deciding ground.

Expectancy of a fair elect

Winnow through the parties,

Past the cloaks, handouts and desperation

Patriots unwilling to trade their birth rights

March they will, pupils alight

Nigeria, will decide.

Butterflies

Butterflies

BUTTERFLIES

When I was around you

I could feel it.

Many a years I heard ‘em say

specious, i thought they were

but then i felt it

And denial became a thing of the past

I knew it had come to stay

Butterflies! (chuckling)

yeah, they were there

I cant explain it

but, I felt it.

It was this feeling

of having every answer

to the questions of the world

where every door felt open

and with you, I could go anywhere

Cos’ our clocks where wound

Constantly on happiness

Yes I knew I felt it

Cos with you my world glowed

CULTURAL OPPOSITE’s

CULTURAL OPPOSITE’s

LUCY

My baby’s mad, my baby’s sad, my baby’s down

And it all my doing, swimming in my tots

Reflections of our Fights to push ideas through,

Statements made to define self, and position

Notions of intellectual pride

Potions of cultural differences sprinkled in the air

Thrust of personalities made so clear

We divide ourselves and stand apart

Pressured by thoughts of reality

This threatens these broken boundaries of ours

A tale of two cities we are, but strive otherwise

But this is mostly about, my angel and I

My baby, my heart, am sorry I stood afar

For only you matter, in this crazy moments of ours

Am sorry my baby, am sorry my love

Am sorry my heart, do not stop your beat

And take life away from me
