I know this will raise some eye brow here on NS…I don’t mean to cause any, read with an open mind, comment and move on with your writings. Just a self expression out of certain inspirations.

Your face here
Carries a certain air
The aura and fire
Will only go higher

I am captured and enraptured
By your facial exposure
Even your lips,
Yes the lips,
With its own culture

Its heritage well rounded
Ehmn… I have not seen the legs
But something tells me you turn every way
To a runway!
As you sashay to the rhythm of your name
Bubby bubby…

Keep bubblling
Like the bubble
That bubbles without knuckles
Fresh like bubu
Sweet like honey
What a name that invokes mirth
Let your light not dim
That is my song

Without a Grammy, or
It going platinum
One thing is sure
I am captured by the contours
With you riveting eyes…
That sees even now
What my heart means to say…
This is my song!



Of the times expunged,
Of the glory departed,
Of the joy that was never joyful,
Of the seriousness taking unserious,
Of the beauty that ugliness expressed,
Of the pageantry and glamour,
Of the toils and labour,
Of the sweat and sighs,
Of the impact unrealized,
Of the hopes hopelessness masked,
Of the glow inbuilt, mirrored in fruits,
Happiness was never happy.

        Yes the lips,

        This one na agape love? See as you dey value im lips like say na something you wan chop.

        Then see this line:

        ‘I am captured by the contours
        With you(r) riveting eyes…

        @sambrightomo …you don implicate yourself…oya confess!

        1. In literature,writers go write con leave d readers to make deductions.na u get wetin u dey think @Afronuts keep thinking… That na my confession

    2. @sibbylwhyte …okay oh.

      Maybe its your ‘girl next door’ personality dey winch the guy because he talk one true thing –

      ‘But something tells me you turn every way
      To a runway!’

      lol…he is saying you cause commotion and then vamoose…eeya…poor guy.

      1. @afronuts..
        Hehehe…Nutty U won’t kill me with laugh… D lips ah dey use am preach 2 am na.. ..there is no chopping involved.

        As for the commotion causing, I am inno’saint’ oh…I dey where I dey..No vanishing acts..

        1. LOL..Na wao @Afronuts u sef write ur own na..shuoo…why u want put and for my garri huh?d runway wey I mean na runway(catwalk) wey dem dey take do fashion show.u knw say na elevated ground.dat na how bubblinna dEy run tings…

  43. Hmm. I’m not surprised at this sha. the name and the little piece of facial bubblina was noteworthy to me too BUT- guy which wan be ‘bubby’ and ‘bubbi-lina’ again na? dis ‘Bubby’ thing is a tintilin bit disturbing o, makes me think of certain parts of a woman’s anatomy that the male species never get tired of; from the womb to the tomb. and which contours you see? the contours of the eyebobs?
    Nice one tho, I like the rythm. and the paradox in happiness…i wish i wrote this. kudos.

    1. @markwealth thanks for appreciating nd dotting ur esteemed thought.Indeed you av giving d poem ur interpretation dat is good.Although d bubby issue has natin,absolutely ntin to do with ur inference.Thnks again for reading.God bless.

  44. Hmn. Yo all re still on this. Leave two love birds alone, will ya?

    1. @layrite thank you.please help me tell @Afronuts to free me na shuooo….make him go find another river to fish.Haba na me get dis river…helep me tell so…

  45. Well, I like the first poem… guess I wanted to do it a long time ago, but you beat me to it. Like you said, I have read, commented, and am moving on.

  46. @elovepoetry it is good you are moving on…I am…thanks for reading.
