Wet Dream

Wet Dream

She twirled and twirled round the pole,
Inside the notorious Honey Club,
In nothing but her birthday suit.
Her body was an alluring meal
Pulling all sorts into the den.

In walked a man of rare rugged looks.
He ordered glass of wine and sat to drink.
She glanced at him and made him out as someone new.
He rose, moving slowly to her pole.
His eyes were fixed on her beautiful face.
She knew his hands must itch for colourful flesh.

His gaze still on her face
She wriggles her waist and licks her lips
His gaze on her face
She squats so he can view her breasts
Yet his gaze on her face
She freezes as she peeps into his eyes

Her soul was peeled. These eyes bore into her being
So strong she sensed the raw passion.
How could she be this lone in the boisterous Honey Club?
His arms stretched to hold her face tenderly.
She fell on her knees, tears streaming down her mask.
“I love you, my dear child,” were words she heard next.

Instinctively, she grasped the hands upon her face
Bringing it down gently like two lost in prayer.
“Please w-who are you, oh mystery man?”
Instantly, she saw a crown of thorns upon his head
And felt fresh wounds in his bleeding palms.

  1. em, this is a really fine piece King, but I failed to see how the title describes it. Well done still.

  2. Wet words Koboko. Thumbs up!

  3. Wet words, Koboko. Thumbs up!

  4. Was this inspired by a movie…? It reminds me of a film I saw last year… Can’t remember the name… Nice sha.. I also ditto my friend, @Scopeman…

  5. Yeah, the title seems completely unrelated to the poem.
    As for the poem – simply beautiful. I’m saving this in my fave folder.

    1. Oh Lade, I’m honoured. *blushin*

  6. Film ke? Nooo! In fact, I first composed this piece on d 26th of August 2008. I believe in more in originality than any other thing bro. Check out more of my works from my free e-book if u wish http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/koboko

    But wait o, u sure sey d scriptwriter no get inspiration from my poem? Is it Hollywood, Nollywood or Bollywood? I wanna know if I’m gonna be suing them in dollars, naira or (wetin India dey use sef?). *winks*

  7. @scopeman, i thought so too..@king, the title does not really capture the lovely theme of the story…WELL DONE, the poem is a sticker…got my face stuck in it

  8. I like the direction you took the poem, even though I would have favoured a different play of words to capture the same thought, especially with the “crown of thorns” part. Still the eyes remaining on the face, was quite appealing. Nice one!

  9. Vivid and captivating! You did well…

  10. came over to have a second look and see if our Qs have been answered, NO?..waiting

  11. really nice…well done

  12. suspense! yea this is a personification of suspense. thats what i love about this work. however, i tend towards being a prescriptivist so to say and would want to do to peoples work what i want them to do to mine. kill it! diagnose it for issues. so thats what i am about to do right here no beef bro.
    first after reading this i asked myself “what makes a work of art a ‘poem’? is it a poem just because it is arranged in lines and verses?”
    what makes a poem different from prose?
    so i might as well tell a story and arrange it in lines and verses.
    is a poem supposed to be just flat in tune?
    must a poem be sonorous?
    must a poem have underlying meanings?
    to be frank this work begs the question: “what is poetry?”
    the only element of poetry that i could detect in this work are the lines and verses. but what makes a line? and what makes a verse?
    poem are categorized according to form and structure, so of what category is this? qustions! questions! questions!
    mmmmm… well done for now

    1. Wow Adams! I appreciate your criticism o! Its just that I wonder what poetry is too. Ha ha! *winks*

  13. Loved the piece Koboke.Good to read from you again.

    Well done!!!

  14. i thought somebody somewhere would want to lash me for what i said. well its my personal opinion.

  15. Loved the poem. A lonely stripper? More like Mary Magdelene and Jesus. Good message. Love Tpain’s ‘I’m in love with a stripper’. And this poem reminds me of the song. Really enjoyed reading.

  16. What a friend we have in Jesus…sometimes we forget that.

    Don’t know how I missed this…I think the title put me off. What did they used to say ‘don’t judge a book by…’
    The title is off…but that’s just COS I can’t tie it into the whole thing..the poem itself is powerful.

    1. Yes Seun! Exactly the implied point in my controversial title! Never judge a poem, a person or whatever by its cover *winks*
