There is a storm brewing Raging in the cauldron of death Boiling over the furnace of doom There is a storm coming Can you hear it in the silence?

The skies weep blood Or is the tears that cloud our eyes? The soil now grows bodies, like yam Buried deep within the ground- lifeless When did this abomination creep in? Who welcomed him and gave him water To wash his feet and palm wine to drink? Who beckoned to him from afar, and Promised … Continue reading Bloody Tears

Silence reigned. The clock struck eleven o’clock. A child dropped a spoon, the sound reverberating throughout the cathedral. Seun stared wide-eyed at the man walking down the aisle towards the altar. She was feeling hot and dizzy and it was a miracle she was still standing. This was every bride’s nightmare. Tade looked flummoxed. He … Continue reading The wedding scandal
It is dark, In the middle of the day, The sun is overtaken by the Sad cloud That shed tears In racking spasms And bawls on the shoulder On the earth As it soaks up the anguish And sways and rocks A steady rhythm. more poems and stories here

Killing me softly With your smiles Lighting up your face Like Apollo in all his glory Warming my cold heart. Killing me softly With your feather light kisses Trailing a path on My fever hot skin Making me moan with pleasure Killing me softly With your eyes The depth of emotions Behind them … Continue reading Killing me softly
Your words is all I have, But it is not enough; The proverbial half, Better than none, as I surf The vastness of the web; Caught like a fly, helpless Waiting for the tide to ebb While I lay listless. I hear your voice in my head, A whiff, a whisper- Faint, an echo … Continue reading Mystique
A piece of me Is all I have to give; A heart with gaping holes Is all I have left; Pieces of me are Strewn along the path To here- to you, If you will have me. I will not promise to Always … Continue reading A piece of me
Eyes Misty Glassy Foggy Tears Trickling in Slow motion Cascading Trailing new paths Downwards Heart Spluttering Stopping Picking up Laboring Sweating Via the eyes Waves Of pain Billowing Crashing Overwhelming Submerging Gasps Of breath Caught in mid air Halting Sighs Chest constricted In agony Heart bleeding tears of Love lost

Lately, my thoughts have been dominated by the sentiments of the ‘new year’. I ask myself, is the year really new? To me, it is just but yesterday.

Kiss me, you must, We are standing under the mistletoe; Take me, with each thrust, Racing to the peak- with curled toes. Dance with me, I insist, Take my hands and sway, It’s our music, it’s distinct Let nothing stand in the way. It is not good to dwell in the past, Like … Continue reading Verses for Hubby

It’s the holiday season, Filled with seasoning; Let’s remember the reason For all the rejoicing: Long ago in a tiny manger, Was born the Messiah, Admist threats of … Continue reading christmas rhymes
