LET’S DIG THE WORDS OF OUR HEARTS

I need us to sit In chairs that will fit And speak abjectly Because I am bereft of happiness And I can see the clouds of sadness hanging on your head   Forget the pain And think of what we stand to gain We’ve cast aspersions, loathed for public viewing We’ve sat in wild silence […]

INTERVIEWING LOVE IN MY DREAMS

A COVETER’S REGRET

“What beauty! The worldly materials they fancy I must be among So I can also belong”   Now I see my mistake I sold my freedom For materials I cannot take When I enter the pores of the earth I have been tied with ropes of demands Which tightens at my failure   Where is […]

APES IN FEATHERS

Now in the arms of money Lies the fairest of beings Kwaa Attah, being a bird Whose wings have been clipped by The sharp teeth of money What will be my fate?   I watch as perfectly painted beaks, Claws and faces saunter  like Angels  in perfect outfits walking on rainbows into arms of apes […]

THE MAGNET IN OUR MIDST

Symphony, Your breath and mine are in harmony So going in different paths will be a felony   Blimey   Asking for more will be pure gluttony  We, even in a desert, will form a colony   Isn’t it an irony That we lived like cat and mousy And now our union is branded as […]

AN EMPTY HOUSE

I wake to a void An emptiness and an ache I am like the calabash without content, The river without water, The house without a tenant, The president without citizens, The bulb without light, The beautiful valley without lilies To what end can a smile travel to my face?   If only donkeys knew the […]

WHAT ENDED THAT BEAUTIFUL STORY

CAPTURED

Captured, I watched A heart in oblivion as its charm Pulled me through burdens Into the abyss of love Captured, I yearned To be in an embrace Instead of the adulthood bestowed By my birth, yet, the bearer knew not Captured, I followed, With discipline though dazed And fell into mud pits of shame I […]
