This poem (WHY)  is dedicated to three people although they are unnamed, their personalities and my relationship with them has become the muse leading to it’s writing. Each paragraph is dedicated to each of them. Do not be confused while reading.

WHY?

I look at your dark melanined skin. What beauty I see! Why is it that when I look at your bright glowing eyes, there’s this way I feel

Why is that your lips are so soft, round and pink?
Why do I admire your chubby, soft cheeks?
Why is It that when I gaze at you, I’m drawn to your dark glowing skin?
Why do you enchant me with your melanin?
And yet when they look at you they hiss and call you black!
And you call yourself ugly!

Why?

No! I only see raw golden melanin.
And my wish is to see a perfect, satisfied smile from your heart and that almost always Frowny face.

Dearie, Why am I so happy around you?
I Feel that crazy and childish self with you.
Why? Without you, I feel bored, sad and empty but what do I do?
Why does it feel that we are one?
Beyond friends, there’s that crazy bond
Why does to genuine smile come to my face whenever I see you?
Hmm, you make me feel crazy!

Why?

Hmm! Why!! Why do you distract me but I’m distracted without you?
I spend most hours of my day thinking about you and you don’t even know.
Why do I feel butterflies in my stomach whenever I feel your presence?
Why do I out on the biggest smile whenever I feel your presence?
How did I get charmed!?
But with all these feelings, I’m still confused.
It seems you are hiding behind the Emojis
Today we are friends, tomorrow we might be more and the next day we are strangers!
Stop turning my head around.
Let’s go straight to the point. Stop beating about the bush.
Stop it!
But Why do I Feel like this?
Why?

HER SHADOWS

HER SHADOWS

Like a cub hiding his mother
I became a dunce just for her love
I became Johnny bravo
Cause only her is my weakness

So sweet was her love
And I won’t mind being her fool forever
Just with her light kiss
My heart lit so bright

Love stories had always been a fairytale to me
But with her- my illusion became a reality
I sank so deep in her love
That she became the only thing I see

Just like the Shadows
I was ready to follow her everywhere
Not minding where she went
Cause am now her shadow

Things Fall Apart By Joshua bethel Ogidi

Things Fall Apart

People living together, eating, drinking and working together, suddenly,one start doing on his own.

brotherhood, despite the way one lay down himself for his neighbour, yet problem arises for separation.

Things Fall Apart

Truly, thirty friends cannot live for thirty years, as not all thirty days that makes a month but not expecting thirty friends to live till eternity.

Things Fall Apart

You destroyed the means of friends, brothers and loved ones

You don’t want peace and love to reign in the world despite the good, one does on
earth ,you always come and tear it apart.

Things Fall Apart

Leave the world and let peace and love reign, go away and let the world be a dwelling place.

MY BELOVED

My Beloved By Danny Hanks

If time travel happens in my time
i would travel back into
the past,
To where it all started.

That cloudless mid-morning,
Beautiful ,warm and clear
When i set my eyes on you.

Your beauty shown
as it reflected light,
And from a distance,
i beheld your glory.

But you were “complete humanity”
that i went on my kneels
And ” thanked divinity ”

Your love is like a motion
a force acting on my emotion

Increasing the velocity of our pace
in the smallest second of time

And hence putting our relation
In a perfect acceleration.
