Tears In A Woman’s Eyes

Tears In A Woman’s Eyes

The woman
right next
to you,
she wore
the courage
that bore
me and you,
She bears her cross all alone,
in sessions,
in seasons,
young
and old.

Though
She looks
so gorgeously adorned,
She
wears
the crown
of thorns,
thrice
in
her life time,
sometimes
rythmic
like a chime!

Young
and tender,
she
starts to weather;
chronicles
of
a
virgin’s
cycle,
coming
and
going
round
the
circle.

There she goes,
she
wriths
in pains,
nobody knows,
enfeebles
her veins,
i watched her limped for a while,
she wrapped it up with a smile.

Young and tender,
happy
woman
are you!

She grew with time,
she with her charms,
she
got a man!

Honeymoon
night,
turn off
the lights,
nuptial flight!

He pounced on her,
sweet
moaning,
heavy
groaning
and
screaming!

Pluck the roses,
uproot this petal.

Seismic pains
quaked the maid’s innocent heart,
grieved with uneasy hurts that could rein the skies apart!

Blush Clouded face
pelleted with salty tears,
he wins,
whilst
she’s weak,
she
spurts
out
the
flows,
that
holds
sway
the
truth
she told.

Have
heard
of Hercules,
have read
of Troy.

Every Hero,
dead
in battle,
or
warrior
of wars,
was
once
conquered
and
bathed
in
a in woman’s blood.

Everywoman Is Everyman’s true Hero!

Love it,
though
it sounds disgusting!

Answer it,
the question,
it aint rhetoric!

Aint
the catholics
right?

When they say:

“No Mary,No Jesus”

She carries a nation,
She bears the world!

She paid the price!
Price for survival,
price for life.

Ever heard her voice in birthpangs,
ever felt the fiery heat in the room?

The sun is hot,
even
billions
of miles away,
take me close,
take me near,
two inches away,
i wont be seared,
the
sun but scorches,
it
does
not
burn
like
the drops
of
fiery
tears
of
a woman
in
labour and pains!

And
when
the
cub
is put to birth,
confussion
journeys
ebullient mirth,
(piano swerves)
great
is
the
joy it brings!

Sacred vials
filled
with
tears of Joy!

All
for
the tears
in your eyes,
oh
woman,
what
a wonder you are!

  1. Really deep lines. Message taken ‘no woman, no . . .’

  2. Nice writeup, just that the style was kinda jumpy.

  3. This is a timely piece since tommorrow is mother’s day. Could have been better structured but still ok.

  4. I am completely in love with this poem. It appreciates the woman in very beautiful tones and a practicality that is absolutely real, and simple.

  5. “She carries a Nation, she bears the world” strong sentence. Nice write up, but not easy to read… Thanks from a mother.

  6. This is not good jare, even though you tried to play on our sentiments, the poem is still terrible.

  7. Another lovely tribute to the feminine gender.

    Love the arrangement…just hoped it wasn’t so long.

  8. Yes, saw the crown of thorns worn thrice.
    Maybe that’s just the three you know. But there are more. Whoever appreciates women always lives a happy life.

    I think ‘confussion’ should have been a single ‘s’.

    Well done.

  9. @baby..lol, way too many more!

    Really lovely poem. endearing and innocent. The reference of course to chaste and wedding nights
    would raise eyebrows these days methinks… Then again we live in a world of reconstructive surgery .
    You name the part of the anatomy, it is fixed,lol.

    I am a romantic, so I think I like your words better buklawz, more honoring.

  10. I started liking it from ‘have heard of hercules, have read of troy’ I totally love this poem. Too long though, I think.

  11. Thanks everyone. I am new, just coming up. I believe with your constructive criticisms, appraisals and mistakes-point-out i will improve. NAIJASTORIES.COM is a nice site.
