They Can't Love You The Way I Do
Remember the days of hide and seek; when our innocence was contagious and the staining clay caused no offence. Then in Morse code we whistle and in Semaphores we whisper. And growing up together was a jackpot we hit that earned us millions of love. I know you better than anyone, from your rear to your front. Your smile, voice, gait and your natural fragrance, all unaltered within my...
Beautiful Duties
I do not forsake thee for my duties to discharge is my utmost priority; my works in life and the after life, lives forever and reconciles broken hearts. The sight of me lightens up a sad day and brings thee to breathe fresh air for my beauty overwhelms thee and causes thee to nose in a scent. My powers know no limit I plead forgiveness to the...

Life Story

Life Story
Life is given, a kid on the floor, with a smear of candy, Crawling on the pavement, soggy knees and a need for exploring, Years skipping by, until his pink fragile lips calls out "mommy" Teenage lifestyle, violence and the apologies that comes with it, "I'm sorry" Puberty maturity, deranged thoughts, and unfit for the society, Few friends, weird kid, who likes to hang...
Amazing Sin
Two wrongs can't make a right but two wrongs can be right. Hence wrongdoings got him into heaven. A damned soul by men, abhorred by one to ten. He lived freely in wrongs waxing morally strong. Undeterred to commit any error, his faults shone in the mirror. And this made him a hero as his sins brought him glory in ground zero. For his folks that were spotless, they came to...
Spiritual Maradonas
They'd mastered the art of Dribbling the scriptures; kicking kicks that aren't free kicks And cornering kicks that aren't corner kicks For their names to swell in the lips of men. By their bags and umbrellas, You shall know them. They claim to witness for the Jehovah themselves haven't witnessed. 'Spiritual Maradonas', Is what I like to call them. It is now their craft. Half truth. Half lie. Forgetting that, negative, multiplied...

We Both Lied

We Both Lied
You lied and I lied too You hurt me and I hurt you too You cried and I cried too How did I become the bad person? How come I hurt you more? Why play the victim? It hurts you as much as it does me Like the adage says: How you make your bed is how you lie on it You did this to us! You stopped caring My...

Iceberg

Iceberg
Tip of the iceberg, everybody wants success, no elevator to greatness, but I've got goons who can teleport to anywhere. Aren't you scared? Life gets messed up when you pass your awkward years, Million dollar smile, but a nigga look broke in that T-shirt. Express yourself? Can't even afford that, too much expenses stuck in your head, life's throwing punches at you, you got fat welts, regrouping for attack until the strategy...
If You Are Not Ready For Marriage
Man, if you are not ready, keep loving yourself. To fall in love while you are financially sick is a tragedy; if she accepts your love, it becomes a greater tragedy because, you'd go to any length to settle her needs. It is like the situation of a man who doesn't have enough for himself, but is calling neighbors to join him in his food.
Maybe God Is To Be Blamed
Okezie, my love, My heart bleeds; truly it does, because I know that you don't deserve this pain, this torture that I am putting you through. But believe me, it's for the best. Why do I think this is the best option? Because I can't stand it any more; I can't stand the accusing eyes, neither can I stand the hurtful...
My Dirtiest Secret
I shivered as the cool breeze from the evening brushed my skin The trees swayed from left to right in the same manner as if rehearsed Birds perched from one tree to another as they sang independently and melodiously Tranquility and serenity engulfed the atmosphere but my mind was in great turmoil I heard footsteps behind me and turned to see Buba approach...

The Fear Demon

The Fear Demon
There's an entity in me A demon that feeds on my fears And my fears are fuels to my life source So they're eternally available This demon has a familiar aura And a familiar behavior Like my brain, he doesn't sleep And he always stays hungry When he feeds, I always feel it He sends ripples of electric waves Through my brain And goosebumps through my body "You're an inferior being" "You...

A Closed Leg

A Closed Leg
Mama said, "Don't let any boy see your pants" Mama said, "If you close your legs properly, men would cherish you" Mama said, "Men adore women who do not give into sex In summary Mama said, "My daughter, close your legs properly for the right man." But mama forgot one thing; Mama forgot the lives and times of their time The times when the clock...

Afrobot

Afrobot
After he escaped the fangs of the colonists he thought he is the prince of the futurists. Self acclaimed glorious path to enthrone his name on the globe. But he missed the signs, the signs of conversion into what they wanted him to be. A robot of the first world design tasked with his master's concern. His heritage enslaved, pride shaved, wealth coveted, health perverted... Oh! He is a decorated toy saddled...

Used 2

Used 2
Dad used to come back home with the tenacious fetor of cigarettes and paint pummeled on his t-shirt. I used to sit in melancholy on his heaving chest and admiring this transcendence scent. I always imagined it like vodka and cranberry juice, my tastebuds itching for a delicate taste. My fragile ears always listening to the awkward way his heart reverb. ***** Staring out...
Behind the Sin II
When you see my sin, But haven't seen the unseen Or unveiled the veil, Don't be swift to judge I, George. I am that fellow that fell low Whom the Lord shall forgive And fore-give his spirit If I turn from my weak-head ways. Don't prey on me. Simply scorn me not. I shall be strong again in the Lord As I know the race isn't to the swift. Albeit, I've...

In You

In You
You strengthen my loose blocks My wall grows with your beauty Your voice is my favorite song I'm singing along when you speak during the day and at night Like white clouds making love to the blue sky, So, shall I drink from you and never eat your meat Your touch is a hidden island with green vegetation Let me sink in your cup of...
Is This Hate?
Having known someone like you for so long, Having known your likes and dislikes, Having known the best and worst of you, Though much bad than good: This question ceases to leave my mind... Have you ever imagined my feelings so far? Have you for once questioned my anger for long? Your callousness is something else, So I ask, "IS THIS HATE?"
The Alarm Clock
The alarm clock would go off by 4.59am, Mama would sweep into your room swiftly, her nightgown making whispery swish swish sounds like rustling of dry leaves in harmattan. "Adachukwu, wake up, it's time to pray. Bịa, ka anyị kpe ekpere," she would say and shake you so much that the pink card on your bedpost which read: "Natural beauty...
