​WHAT YOU DON’T SEE

A skeletal build

With veins of neglect

Blood of stress and thirst

Meat of hate and pure hunger

Skin of punches of cold in a harmattan visit 

And bowl of heat in sunny days

Nails which have tasted the hammer of many quarries

Eyes which have joined the run against death

Legs which have collapsed and been whipped by need to a wake

Why do I see them so well?

LONGINGS

If all I long Could fit into a song I would compose that song And cut my tongue   II Because I’ll be among Those who’ll sound the gong Of bare hearted forever song And nothing could be wrong   III All will sing my song Both old and young And I’ll stand emotionally strong […]

SEASON VISITS EYES, POCKETS AND HEAT

CATCH, CRUCIFY AND CASTRATE HIM

Inventions, to die for. Theories, treasures. Some have no measures And no sense Why will one make a god Of paper which can cause us to  Kneel in degradation? A giver for need A taker only to give One without needs accumulates As the needer kneels in shame As the common paper taunts When bored […]

SUPERHUMAN

I have seen it all Going through life in tattered undies Being kissed and smooched in pure rain As I smiled to its touches Tickling trunks of air blowing  As I closed my eyes to its whistles And I still remained strong and smiled Because I am a superwoman   I have lived through it […]

CHASING-FEARS

In these four corners I surreptitiously crawl Shutting mute entries with a threatening brawl While the banners of thoughts are rooted in my head’s corners   In this dark self-confine I ruminate, no, I contemplate On whether to zap out this life and put it on a plate For those with stochastic opinions that will […]
