Beauty Has A Name

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

I saw her
She's Yoruba
Her eyes were sparkling white
Say for the dark brown balls in the middle of 'em both
Her nose?
Like the snurly shape of the almond pear
Her cheeks are full and glittery
And the curved dimple-like frames on both
Are the cheerful invite one needs to linger
Her little diastemas, and the smiles? Infectiously powerful - a well watered garden that grows charms
As charming as to thaw a frozen stony heart
With this glimpse I've stolen,
I'll cry "beauty has a name"
I'll tell you of it when my eyes are at home with her
But beauty has a name

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
