Coming and going these several seasons, Do stay out on the baobab tree, Follow where you please your kindred spirits If indoors is not enough for you. True, it leaks through the thatch Where floods brim the banks, And the bats and the owls Often tear in at night through […]
If you walked in my shoes for a day, You’d know how I love you in such a way. You’d share the aching of my heart for every moment we spend apart. You’d feel electricity when I touch your skin and the warmth I receive from seeing you grin. You’d […]
UNSPOKEN WORDS – PERPETUA UKAKOGU Is this going to be the death of me? Can’t he see right through me? That I am going to rip my heart out Give it to him to hold To hear how my heat beats for him To feel that which I […]
