The pandemonium of 2020

The news came in waves with high pitched voices,

A novel virus on the horizon.

The cause a speculation, not sure of its intention,

Varied reasons came alive, throwing off lies and spies.

Public deaths and covered bodies

Droplets from sneezing grip young and elderly

Shook many an authority.

Flying to outer destinations, Covid19 scares each nation.

Awaiting to hear a first case scenario, pandemonium starts its latest show.

The great virus of 2020, did not appeal our senses rightly,

No stocking of food and vitamins, rather, toilet paper became the frenzy!

Living today, the greats will surely say,

“Off with their heads, it’s such a dismay.”

How can a world of people be so foolish,

Come to stock a commodity which can least prevent a crisis…?

God must have laughed this time around,

A tech savvy people who wear toilet paper as their crown.

Shame to be human this year!!

My sympathy to all those who lost loved ones to this present virus.

♥️I told him🍃♥️

When I said  I miss you
I do
It’s been over three years
I do
Our shared innocent moments though short and few
I do miss you
I do

You do not know what I have been through
You may think I have given up on you
You may not have understood
Though I know you try to maintain the respect you show
I still do miss you
I do

Sometimes I blame you in my thoughts
Sometimes I cry that you were too shy
To say outright what you felt
When I felt what I knew you do
I miss you
Yes I do

Turmoil was agitated in my soul
Another day may not have seen me whole
Not so much from missing you
But from enduring the woes I have been through
My throbbing heart was about to shatter
My last hope was to know if you felt its clutter
Miss you, I do

And yes, on that day when no one else existed
Though surrounded by their presence
The softest feather kiss you invested
Lifted a weight so deep seated, I no longer felt molested
You calmed my entire being.
I miss you
I do

I need to know in heart to heart
Is our future on this path?
Be bold with me and tell me so
Hold not back as before
And I will will embrace you
The man I know I adore…just saying what my heart explores.

Gifts

The deaf wish to hear,

The blind wish to see,

The dumb want to speak,

And the lame want to walk.

But we who have it all,

Hear not properly,

See not, aspiringly,

Speak not positively,

Nor walk with purpose.

These gifts not granted to some,

A sad song sung for centuries,

Unable to be given freely,

We now fight through technology,

To establish a gift for the ungifted.

For something

Sometimes, somethings are for love

Sometimes, somethings are for fun

Sometimes, somethings are for nothing

Sometimes, something is everything we need.

I have lost all reason,

To believe in a season, though,

All the seasons I believe,

Have a reason.

But what I must comprehend,

Is the folk at the bottom end.

What sometimes I cannot find

Is the something I need.

Let me heal

Let me heal, oh let me heal,

Though the scar remains raw within,

Never blotting out the sin.

Cover me, oh cover me

Let me heal within.

A mothers’ love was never known,

Like a rose, left upon a stone,

The company, never cared

From riches to rags,

Laid I bare.

I wore my dads’ shaven beard,

Which sheilded me from wanton men,

And kept me warm though he was dead,

Yet I lived these thirthy years,

No joy of family ever felt.

Still await my heart to quiver,

For joy that sings like a river.

Life goes on

After ripping your heart apart,

Get over it! They say….

You must heal it yourself.

Let it go, life goes on….anyway.

What they do not see,

Is…

The shattered pieces

To sort,

Reassemble,

Differently…

Store away,

The corrupted actions,

Actions which abused me.

Then…

Learn to be, as they have been

To shield your now fractured heart

From the wiles of hate bestowed.

From this new place,

Smiles come by with silent

Refraining eyes,

An armoured sheild around the heart

Which will never be the same.

The Lover’s Rest

Leading away from the depths of my mind,

I came to a halt at his door.

Braving every emotion,

I knocked and awaited an answer.

I waited…

Three years.

Alas! Swings the blank door and

He whom my soul searched for,

Hovered above me, with eyes of burning gold.

He smiled as he beckoned me to enter

The dark space he occupied.

And as the dark enveloped us,

The light of love stabbed through my heart!

Memories shared, passed before us,

Fading into the night-like space.

Our young selves fleeting,

With the breath we once held dear.

Our children grown and productive

Made us proud when we lived.

And so ended the life of flesh

Which once separated us for three lonely years.

Imagine 1

As he unraveled the last thread,

The fight within died.

His palms fell off the edge of humanity’s frail bed,

As his spirit rose to start anew.

No longer sad but bemused by the tragic end,

Of a body failed by the tragedy of a failed system created by man!

No looking back, for there was a dark space, nothing to see.

And so, forward he went into a place,

Where only his imagination had once been able to conjure.

Celestial bodies, preparing for war.

He grinned, for so long within him

Yearned the desire of soldierhood.

The desire to help the weak,

The desire to brave it all

To desire to fulfil a thirst of completion.

The completion of brotherhood!

Baby steps

I all my adult life, I did not think about it enough.

That book publishing, is super hot!

I esteemed and wrote so much, a fine lot,

My excitement has taken the higher notch.

Am proud, my patience I wore very well,

Or I might have been an author known, only here.

My heart is full I must now say,

I signed my contract just today….

Bear with me a little longer,

I will furnish your reader’s hunger,

From a fairy land of buzz,

I hope to keep my readers love.

I too thirst, for the life it brings,

To hold in my hands my thoughts, worded in ink!
