Seductive Revenge
She smiled at him and walked towards where he sat with his friends. Her armless top barely covered her chest, and the mini sized skirt she wore gave a clear view of the smoothness of her thighs. Her Greek nose was rightly fixed on her oval face, with her oily lips parted wide enough to show her shiny teeth....
Haul To Slavery
It was on an Affor day. The younger men were getting ready for the wrestling contest, the maidens stood by the corner on the last rehearsal of the maiden dance, each bare from their chest except for a tiny lace of jigida covering their womanhood. I sat by the corner with the younger wives, preparing the dishes for the...
Mother From Hell
Mum had been a very desirable, caring and lovely mother. Not until dad’s demise, everything about her suddenly changed; first of all, she stopped caring, not only about herself but about everything and everybody surrounding her. Abruptly, my mum who rarely talked become loquacious and spiteful, always at the verge of barking at you at any slightness mistake. Although, we...
My Wedding Day
The continuous banging on the door cut short my peaceful sleep. I silently cursed whoever it was on the door as I lazily opened my eyes and picked up my iPhone which was lying on my bed table. The time was 8:45am. I glanced at my white FRP door with exasperation all over my face as the knock came...

Father Please!

Father Please!
Father, forgive me, For I have sinned and my misery is imminent. My soul calls out in anguish, My mind relinquish in its fury, For my sin has branded me a traitor. Father please! My soul is lost, My spirit is redundant, My grief is without fail, For life has led astray. Father help me. I am a lost sheep in a green pasture, My life, I gave to greed. My companion...

Reborn

Reborn
The melting of iron Gives life to a molded steel The beginning of a new structure Is a rebirth with a process With flames from the past Brings forth a new design to behold With the process comes a new product So does nature count with a purpose A seed is planted The earth begins its art work With nature's support Of raindrops and sunlight A forest is reborn What is present...
Depression
That night I opened my door to depression She helped me hide my nightmares from expression; So well from everyone; After all no one cared if I lived or was gone She helped my conquest against heartbreak; The night I wept till daybreak These flash images of his face Reminds me of the nibbling touch of that night: Hearts beating; Breaths stifling; Apparels shifting Beneath bodies bleeding needs With thrusts and...
Let's Go
Let's go home to grandma Reactivate her wrinkled forehead Tell her it's me Taata Home was sweet in the hut Sun neither cold nor hot And the thatchy pathway to the river Of edges and marshes Trampled upon On the left side of the red wall Grandma's hut Hung my catapult For hunting of birds and squirrels Let's sing the song That collects children and souls The song of Africa The song of half...
Not The Usual
They think I'm crazy some call me lazy because my thoughts seem hazy when I said 'life is mazy'. Is life a maze? what a question that got your gaze. You don't have to guess, else your answer might be a mess. Abruptly I wake from my siesta, to join a hell of an idea fiesta. All I could think of was disaster, no matter the endeavor I foster. I saw...
Procrastination
We have been told in teary times Life is but a barren dream! And the soul is buried in awe For things bare not what they are Should we sow our seeds in declining years To reap what would not be there And our souls crushed in despair? Lives of great men jingles to our ears We can birth our lives empyrean And dissociate our foots from The footprints...
Bard Girls
Slim bald bard girls, With their mouths coated with sugar, To say sugarcoated words To I, an upcoming Poetess. Ebony is the blood that Flowed through their veins— African bald bards. African black beauties. They traded their love for me On a platter of poetry. They chanted: "We want a poetess," But Poetess' heart was too fragile. I wasn't a 'woman wrapper', I loved the clique of bard boys, But these bard girls...
Paranoia
How do I explain this feeling I want to claw at my throat Screaming, Something tangible at least You ask me Tell me about your emotions, I obliged, Telling you the parts I considered less scary Picking and sifting, Like an editor-in-chief Of an expensive paper I did natural selection But, I was not careful enough Because now you're far You thought me abnormal You ran, just at the tip The turmoil within Bubbling with the ferocity Of...
Red Roses On Petals
How impossible of nature Yet dramatic for its natural For a slave is meant to be Always under a king that is said to be For the bees makes honey Yet it's the bear that loves it more There is always a labourer Slaving under the scorching sun For an employer to make a day Savoring comfortably in his home de’ comfort A student is meant to learn To become...
Today, 29th Of May, 2019
Today, 29th of May, 2019 Today, I met an art therapist. She gave me mandalas stress relief drawing And 120×4 gel pen, unique with different colours The pen's colour is from part 1-4 Different colours of 380 pens My eyes were searching for you From South to North And vice versa My eyes searched for you from West to East And vice versa Alas! I found you in part 3...
She Calls Me Poem
She refers to me as PoEm Instead of bard or PoEt She concludes by saying, "I am the subject, forming Matter into the lines Of haiku, lyrics and tanka" She furthermore adds by saying, "The verses I write are the Portrait of my heart; How I feel and what I think" Yet, She calls me a PoEt But not a Poet, who behold the pen She calls me a PoEm 'Cause I...
Casket of Emotions
She looked at me with a mixture of wariness and defiance; it was interesting to watch the slideshow of emotions on her face—hate, disgust, fear, desperation. Each emotion was distinct and was threatening to burst through the veneer of her calm disposition. What was more interesting was that I noticed that she fought very hard to conceal and contain...
The Predicament
As I stood in the balcony over looking the brook behind the house, I wondered why I was so restless in spite of the clam, peacefulness of the night. I heaved a frustrated sigh as I wondered what my chances really were in other for me to be happily married to Henry, my fiancé. I have been dating Henry for...
The Bloody Day
I have just gotten a job to work as a state government teacher in one of the best primary schools in the city. I was so thrilled and enthused as I looked forward to my first day at work after my youth service. I am really lucky, I said to myself as I strolled up the stairs to report...
