My casket

Let all my stories be told
In an unedited episode

I seek truth in an abode
I have stepped on many toed

When I go, don’t smooth a toad
My senses go, but not my bode.

Lay me calm while I offload
Earthly pies microbes to feed…

Hence death, I paid all I owed
Don’t let my soul be sold

Lay me down in simple fold
It mustn’t be best hole or field

Nor color be bright and bold
Silver, bronze or made of gold

As long as the casket can hold
All to home, my gentle mould

Here have been, and breathe I found
And lost it, along life’s road

If I die please make my bed
With clean sheet for rest not cold.

Laughing beside a flame

On the day I burst your brains
We posed to take a frame

Albino! I teased your face
Smiling out saving grace

Memories are so amaze
Love we made in the rain,

Soon began sharing the blames
Laughing beside a flame.

Fuzzy

By the side of your haze,
Oh sweet warm embrace
Memos of you never erase
From walls in my place.

The cold came as a phase
Fireflies dots of space
But your gaze, sweat and haze,
Forms walls in my place.

When she comes

The sun will shine across your tile
Ices shall melt, from eyes it lands
When she comes, she takes a file.

From breadwinner to bottom hill
When she comes, she comes with greed
And a pill without a chill.

On her dark crown are broken jars
Often rigid as a kind
That may heal but with a scar.

Ringleader or legit finger
Gold minded, stone, hot or cold
When she comes, bet you know her.

Trustworthiness 

The freshness of Shea butter
Is joyful as a River
A worn and a broken heart
Can only be healed by trust.

Autumn summer winter fall
Bridges of love never falls
The moment heart gains trust
Uncoated irons cease to rust.
