SENSUAL HEALING

In the lunch with day Fatigue bathed as tears poured   In the lunch with day Hurt entered through ears without an invite   In the lunch with day, Disdainful eyes threw stones at my heart   In the lunch with day I yearned for supper at night in your arms   Please bathe me […]

MAMA’S SPACE

Mama’s space Is occupied by air   Mama’s hug Is always done by the tree   Mama’s voice Is lost in the wind   So in my many nightmares I have no voice to call mama   Because when the trees and the air Run there, their scare will stop my heartbeat. Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia […]

TEARS FROM THE CRADLE

The cradle cries From the cold of loneliness As the infant cringes in the darkness Of the past   What could’ve now been a blessing Ended up being a past catastrophe Which you pushed with the help Of rakes of harsh drugs   Now you call on God After abandoning the gourd Of the gods […]

WATCHING OURSELVES

We were created by no one knows We live for love but none wants to show We stage comedies but none wants to laugh Geniuses create parodies Many show for the show Others laugh in their shelters and watch We end up laughing at ourselves in the mirrors of actors Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2014 […]

YOU SEEM TO BE A PHANTOM

You seem to be a phantom Who lives in everything living Your eyes are never shut Probably because you watch out for us Or could it be you trust no one? Your beauty goes throughout the land Yet none has seen you Why the mystery? Who are you hiding from? Who follows what he can’t […]

DRUNK IN REALITY

Drunkenness steals composure But frees the inner child   Armed robbery steals properties and lives But pays men in security   Cheating hurts hearts But fills the void at some point   One considered ugly Makes the beautiful stand out   Treason is unpardonable But cautions us to watch our backs   Learning is difficult […]

VARYING FAIRNESS

Carnivores hearts bleed As ebola their targets freed The kingdom of the wild Might be singing hallelujah For their liberation from African mouths Our curse, their blessing That’s the life the creator created Fair to a group now Fair to that group tomorrow. Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2014

ECSTACIA (ADULT POETRY)

Now I indulge in chanty duets Not painful pushy frets I ascend the heavens, Pass cloud nines to the elevens, Held by potent electricity Lighted from my sternum, cursing my chastity   Smooth cheeks take me far Bewhiskered, and we are at par The delectation of each brush Grants my vehicle a fuel stash To […]

Laughter resonates From the abyss of the acquired The acquired watch their masters Slumber with no awareness Mocked pageant of self ownership fills the air At this point, they’re unowned And can belong to any daring hands But the snores are so confident That they have eyes on watch When they’re also of the flesh […]
