But Why

Poem By Nicholas Oifoh

I’ve given my heart and soul away
So it can be broken into small remains
You left me with strong feelings of disgust and betrayal
Now day-by-day I slowly wake up…
In a deep hole of bitterness and despair
Your absence eats away at my throbbing heart
As I try to endure the pain and anguish inside of me
Days go by and my feelings leave me here confused
I lay dazed, blank in the Abyss that I somewhat created

You simply have diminished my love for anyone
And tears fall down substantially off my arid cheeks
I need to escape this depression that I am in
Because your separation from has left me lifeless
I need…I need, you back
I want us to be together
To finally rid my self of this agony
I want you to fall slowly into my arms
While the breeze comforts us with a gentle movement
Let my lips touch your lips one more time
But sadly to say, you’ll never come back
And I ask my self why? …..But Why?

Tears Of Tragedy

On the beginning of that September day
Our flag was wailing in the wind
As we were to celebrate another day of our freedom
Many lives were going to change forever

Confessions Of Pain

Each day I look outside my window
I realize you are gone
I can’t show the pain and anger inside
The only thing I can do is hide

Whispers In The Wind

They said I will never have a chance with you
Rejection after rejection took each piece of my heart
Since I laid my eyes upon you
My lave has been pursuing you

The Agony In Me

The mild image of rolling grasslands, the fine moisture of morning dew
Water so cool and calm
Thoughts so distant from me now, as I'm forced back to my hell
Now I lay here battered and bruised

Lost Somewhere

My body just feels so empty
I try not to let out my tears
All my violent screams of anguish
Are the only things I can hear

The Unheard

She is crippled, scarred and bruised
On the inside of her young broken heart
No one is here to see what she is going through
A faint utter for help, in her awful dismay
