My Beloved

Eve’s love

Your breath stands tall like my amulet
Your rhythmic heart beats protrude
Like that of an eagle’s eye sight
Piecing beyond godot abode
Your smile, a locale for my soul
A boastful drinker losses his sole
Not to alcohol, but liquor of hamlet
I stagger, still envisaged for drops
My undying affection knows no boundaries

You have fallen deeply into the anus of love
You seem envious of the abstract
You thought that you were strong
And could hold back the feelings
But like a dream she keeps holding
You to ransom at night
You, yes you! You nothing but a fool
She has the smooth skin of a snake
And Beauty of a chameleon
Your vision was curb webbed
All you saw was shadows yet
You longed and wanted it more and more
You are nothing but deranged
To think she is perfect

With just two years between them, they could pass for twins.  They looked so alike, but they […]

Three days later, it was broadcast that there was a bomb blast in the Federal Capital Territory. The bomb was said to be detonated at the early hours of the morning rush, claiming not less than twenty-seven lives. The names of certain senators and political juggernauts were mentioned among the victims and that made me […]



I remember growing up I thought I’d stay young forever Like Peter Pan in Neverland Because the more things changed, The more they didn’t. But that was a child’s fantasy. Because the more things changed, The more they did. Memories. Like TV time. Rainbows on full display every day at 4 Humming a tune of […]
