Again and Again

Here we are again
brought together by feelings
as magnetic as gravity.
I should not be here
neither should you.
Still here we are.

Like Lancelot and Guinevere
we are helpless.
Like Lancelot and Guinevere
the earth became our bed.
Shame sowed a seed
but here we are again.

We have heard about love
God’s love for us
to sacrifice his only son.
Is this how we feel?
We don’t think so
still here we are again.

Away from Ubong’s hammer
as a chair is born
and the gawky table
awaits its new lord.
Away from the world’s silence
here we are again.

Even in the darkest night
we know our furrows and lakes
as well as we trace our rendezvous.
As sure as the sun
moves from the east to the west
here we are again.

We’ve heard of the cocus, rheas and ids
that eat up men’s bodies.
We don’t know what they really are.
Can they find us here?
Questions we will never answer
so here we are again.

Nearby the stream is rushing
playing nature’s music
mixing with our song
and dance of the ancient.
The sun has run its course
still here we are.

In times of timeful time
coupled with arms of aimless aims
what more can we do?
Edidiong! Edidiong! My father calls.
Ayanti! Ayanti! Your mother appeals.
Still here we are

proud, happy,
yearning for hope…

    “like Lancelot and Guinevere
    we are helpless.
    Like Lancelot and Guinevere
    the earth became our bed.
    Shame sowed a seed
    but here we are again.” My best verse. Lancelot and Guinevere my major characters in merlin series.

      Erhm…I dd nt follo d Merlin series closely so I dnt kno if Lancelot nd Guinevere had an affair in d t.v series cos they did in ‘Excalibur’,a novel about King Arthur dat inspired dat verse. Did they?

  3. Lovely poem. I especially liked the musicality of the end line – here we are again. Despite how things go contrary, here we are again, waiting, hoping.
    Well done, Murney. $ß.

    When it comes to lovers, everyone else do not matter except the quiescence in their abode. Beautiful and rhythmic poetry.
