St Valentine’s Memories

St Valentine’s Memories

Last season

We were together,

Hearts entwined,

Passions burning,

Coitus made in heaven,

One a compliment

Of the other.


This season

I found my side empty,

Passion burnt out,

Heart drained

Like a sucked cherry,

You riding on the crest

Of the free wind,

Me grappling in the trough

Of lonesome existence.


So tell me,

What is this love?

Is it not strong but short lived

Like lightening against

The darkening clouds?

Sweet but fleeting

Like orgasmic pleasure?

    1. Thanks Idoko.Would check the forum ‘Voice of the poets’ to see what can be done about that.

  8. I loved it. Simple, and straight to the point. It seems the MC hasn’t really moved on. He still wishes that his other half was still there. he can’t give himself the chance to love another, full of regrets, but yet hopeful, I presume. Interesting!

    1. Thanks Ayo, but the MC has sure moved on! I’m glad you find it interesting, that is much needed encouragement.

  9. i was scrolling down to see more, but didn’t know it was the end. i so like the flow, the choice of words and their synchronous combination in the lines.thumbs up!
    i noticed something! the captivating arrangement of the syllables in the line of stanza one 3, 5, 3, 4, 6, 5, 3. i dont think this is deliberate. i love it
