Ajọ Je

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

"Touch my heart, let it boil for you,
Touch my soul, let it melt with your tip,
So that the molten it makes
Will fit into the shape of the hollows of your heart
And satisfy your desire

For the morning dawns with it
A desire for your kiss
And the day, one to hear your voice
And the night? .
A longing for your touch
And the red earth awaits your spoils

And in this eery season
The weather is here
It rained all night when I should sleep
The breeze it was dry
And this sun so hot I'm freezing to death

If the world ever match makes a couple
It shouldn't keep a distance in between
The droplets are many
That pour from the windows of the soul
For many assumptions assume
Walls where there are none
A mistake that I made
My pillar is at that end
My mighty strong breasts

But I am the matchmaker
Don't do well in my maths
So I did a poor construction
The long bridge that should keep my breasts and I connected
Can I still pick a dust?
And you saw the vacuum
And kissed my lips
And touched my heart
And then my soul
It is the end
You and I ate my life
You gave the lethal
And I had it
If only...
Now it really is the end"
Oh that lament

From the opposite side of heaven

Remember Who I Should Be

I am the womb that gave you life
The shield from harshness from uncanny uncertain destination
And you had to breathe by my breath
And bone up by my bones

Gone Too Soon

You came at dawn
With the zeal and energy of a young day
Promising and hoping all impossibilities to win
The world seemed a cascade of labyrinth decoy

You're My Lullaby

You are the song that I sing
Then when my heart get excited at mere promises
When all roads lead to the distance ever longed for
When the sun walks away


You are my dawn
My early morning wine
The sweet smell of the promising morning
No other rose is pearly enough to give the stress if I must choose between you and one


Take me now that I'm available for you to see
Otherwise I'd fly like a bird with wings flapped freely
Have me now that you own me
Otherwise the trees won't sense my perch for all they'd stay

Marriage Of My Dreams

I dream of a marriage where my wife is me, is my friend and my partner, more like she is my skin

I dream of a marriage where the meeting that my wife is present is no longer in need of my presence because they'll get the same effect
