A SAFE NEST FOR YOU

As the wise Asante studied The creative spider at work for shelter And wove the beautiful kente Which has become the Asantes pride I will study the rainbows of heaven And carve the most beautiful colours Study the brightest of suns And tap its light Study the most innocent of darkness And create for you […]

HAVE YOU EVER LOVED?

Oh eyes with laser twinkles Mouths with flapping tongues Ears ready to hear the sounds Of my heart’s eruptions I have one question Have you ever loved? II Have you ever loved? So hard like the balls of a mating bull? So wild like hell fire’s senior in a rage? Wider than the ends of […]

ODIKRO’S RACING HEART

I met Odikro in a storm Couldn’t really make out his form He kindly led me to my dorm After our bodies somehow thundered in our clingy uniforms II He took my number and always did call And rushed to catch my every fall But I did see Odikro’s racing heart ball And felt my […]

COOL AND CRUDE

Sometimes your veil is too thick Too thick to brand eyes impotent in sighting Oh love! II Sometimes your faith is too fierce Too fierce to think it can conquer all bad Oh love! III Sometimes your voice is like an angry thunder Too loud that ears behave like cut nails Useless and careless! Oh […]

A LOVING TRACK

When I told God I was emotionally broke He let me your view poke I told the Almighty He was on ‘coke’ Because I looked at the gentle you And so no equation to work us two Then I thought of Satan’s hound And thought he had me bound So I sought a rhyme I […]

IN SYNC

SONG OF DIVORCING (CRAZY STANZAS IN SONG)

WHEN HE SAYS HE LOVES HER

HEARTS INTERTWINED

Hearts intertwined like threads  lost in channels Crossing each other, hurting each other Pulling at each other, tearing each other A world of chaos and anarchy As they knot in frost Soon, we might need a scissor-like equipment To cut through in order to save ourselves Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2015

CRAVING FOR MAGIC

I CALL FOR YOU

I am sometimes in a semi-circle But the faces are not familiar You aren’t there I turn to the freedom chasers They see me like a meaty rat So give me the hot chase Unfortunately,  all welcoming holes hoard smokes And heat whose fore-fingers point at me in a warning So I run on Crying […]

RIDE HARDER

If you promise to be a horse You’ve got to have speed Most importantly, stamina To carry and ride harder Like a true knight Fearless and apt in promises II If you promise to be an eagle You’ve got to have strength Most importantly, fierceness To carry and ride harder Making sure need fears my […]

A DIFFERENT FEELING

Pants of can’ts Excuses in rants Even firewood crave fire Wanting to lead in light Wanting to be a star bright Although being in ashes is no delight But you, like a firefly, tease with your faint glow Saying this and saying that On a day when emotions weep For a play in your tower […]

COLD

Emotions dance in veins of the holies And I am a holy The weather’s fan is fanning vain whims And I have a vain whim The sky’s complexion is dark and light And I am the sky At this point, fans are suicide Air conditioners, murder The air is rudely entering pores without knocking And […]

WHERE ARE THE REAL STORIES?

Where are the mouths? The mouths wherein lie the real stories? The real stories guarded by fiery soldiery intents of deceit? II Let them loose!

I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU (ADULT POETRY)

HIDDEN WORDS
