Season dry; I felt hot like a fry
Dark clouds gathered the top of my roof,
As darkness crept, the lightning stroke
Shredding same broom that swept me off my feet.
Shed in rapids, I got so turbid
By the wet tears, of heavy rainfall
And every drop, came with a strop
Like a soaked bread; huff! my heart was swollen.
Erosion came hard flushing it out
I bled out mud the thickest of blood
The thunder stroke and tore it up
With a full force the wind blew angrily
-A whirl cold air, casting out my shreds
Far beyond reach and from each other…
Hollow I was but an empty shell
People could tell my stories made news
Shallow in depth of my misery
Apparently not a breath lived in me…
Thousand years, slowly swung by,
I came out and it took the sun seconds
To gather all of my shredded heart
Assembling me back as a tall tree
Green as before and now I am
So less than three and less than three is love.

The shadows are short, the sun arise
Over my head, it brightens my heart
With a healer, she is clean and sweet
Beautiful as hell, she might not be my first
But she has that touch, in her voice, she said;
“Your kind words are my soul’s reflector…
In times of loneliness, I feel not your absence
Because I always fall back to your words
Over and over again, I read your love notes,
And each time I do, I feel this refresh love.
I may not write to you, as poetic as you do
But from the depth of my fickle heart
I want you to know, you are my utmost priority…
Hardly a go day goes by, without I replay
The sweet memories of you, in all I do.
My feelings stays brand new, and fresh like a dew
Stay strong; you are just the better you
I am not asking for another you…
Though I wish you were here by my side
I am glad, our love is a thing that do not hide.
Every time the sunrise, you leave me naked
And so unexpressed of love I have for you.
Ever since you kissed me, all I taste is but beet
And ever since I met you, life has turned something sweet
Till eternity; I would go nowhere without you.”
I wouldn’t leave without her in my canoe
She is my Juliet and I am her Romeo
I have found a reason to die in fights
For her love melts my ice cold heart
Shining like the sun as if she reprise it.
Written by Onyeche Vincent Onyekachukwu & Ifeoma Ibegbulem
Amazing how the wind blows her long dark hair
Uncloaking her face, innocent and fair
Face of an Angel
The same ones that fell
Obviously, she is every man’s dream pair…
For her perfect desires, targets for dart
She seeks so many male friends to chat
Sampling amongst them
For who is most firm
I love her but, I can not play the part.

Limericks;(5lines each stanza)
No man can reject
An available object
To solve a hard subject
Your empty leaflets
Are in need of sweet words
Let me write on it…
Our love history
With a nostalgic reason
For the next seasons
These inks never fade
Though they are heavenly made
I earned you by chance.
……’I will die for you’…
Still remains an only stance
On or off my glance.
While climbing your hills
A “wanna be” you called me
Till love fell on you…
And you turned to be
The glass for my nerdy eyes
…What a useful tool!
In your sweet love school,
I am stuck repeating
A class not to pass
Filling your empty leaflets
With a love haiku.
