PEN-LOVE

PEN-LOVE

for Ogechi Veronica
THE LOVE I NEVER KNEW
.
would it not be madness
to say I’m in love with imagination?
the heartfelt breath that appears
in the shallow snores of my dreams
upon my stone-pillow at bethel.
.
I have seen hearts melt for beauty
and feet slid for virtues
but all I got lost to, is a breeze
in the shallow thoughts of my imagination
somewhere in the plains of Abia
which spread over the valleys of my brain –
a folktale of my nightmares.
.
I have heard of penpals, and pen friends
on blank sheets of empty promises
on papers that hold the liquid state of the future
but I have jilted Cupid
and stolen from him – a Pen Love –
this again, is madness.
.
tell me, are you short and stumpy?
long and slender, white or black?
I have lost my heart to believe a lie
in the presence of sanity, I have chosen madness
and say, “art thou a manly creation or just a breeze?”
.
and
I ask,
“is Cupid stupid?”

Ololufe by Oki Kehinde Julius

Ololufe by Oki Kehinde Julius

the cherubim are all dead
seraphim had gone to rest
i am the new angel
ordained to look after your eden.
ololufe
you’re the breath i’ve smoked into my nose
and the weed i’ve snuff like tocco.
pardon me if i act you the movie of a drunkard
whose emotion had be hinged and out of control
for my lips have swim through the pool of your ethanoic love
my adam had eaten an apple
lucifer paralyzed and crippled
eye now opened to stare without fear
on your fettled beauty that engrave the footprints of passion
okin must doff its hat
for your beauty that glitters like a star
its royal tenure had lapse
you’re now the beauty queen of the earth
you’re the missing rib
creator stole while i’m asleep
my heart beat for joy
for i’ve found my stolen treasure
ololufe
on this epoch lover’s moon felaberation
i pledge you my vow to convey you to the holy altar
where i shall bind your finger with a charming ring
and caress your lips before the chief priest
“i do” shall be the chorus of our lyrics
where we shall forever lose our way in the map of lust
i shall circumcise your virgin lips
with every bite my tongue will pierce
i shall use an useless you like a tatterred rag
cahooting you till your last breath become tired.

Ife Mi by Oluwatosin Faith Kolawole

Ife Mi by Oluwatosin Faith Kolawole

Ife mi,
Permit these two hearts to melt as one
Lest they die suffering in their lone world;
Leaving their carcasses on a soiled plate of forgetfulness
Let’s spare the word ‘love’
For writers, editors, readers, beings
And live it
Ife mi, let’s live love—you and I
With hands locked in unison
We’ll suture the belly of hatred
In the theatre of life
We will laugh with our nose masks down
Knowing we’ve locked up the rotten belly that oozes black flames
Ife mi, the smiles afterwards can’t be sweeter
I will walk with you down unending lanes
You’ll teach me how to thrust spears at obstacles
And I’ll feed you with lessons
On how to smile after victory
Ife mi, walking with you is life
When fingers point at us
They will result in telling tales
About the love they’ve never heard of;
The love drenched in honey,
Coated with crystals
And lined with beauty
Ife mi, we will leave their mouths ajar!
Whisper into my ears-
Words wrapped as mysteries
We know—you and I
Will unlock them someday
With hearts connected
Ife mi, no other heart can make such match
We’ve heard news about distance
It has shown its curves and pointed corners
And have its name written boldly on our succulent hearts
But before it tries to blow us off with its wind
We will strangle and remind it
Of how our bond can never be swayed by distance
Ife mi, wait a little while. Will you?
Love is cruel, sometimes bitter
It hurts.
Here, we have a flourishing love
That will be written on the sands of time
And will never be blown away
Ife mi, love is sweet between us
Love can’t be defined without us
We won’t spill the milk;
Our tiny secret will never be exposed
We will leave our lives to define
The only true definition of love
Ife mi, let’s love
When I walk down the aisle
With my gown of purity
I’ll look into your eyes only
Ife mi, what else would I say if not ‘Yes, I do’?
Darling, I love you.
Ife mi—my love

My Childhood Lover by Caleb Asset

My Childhood Lover by Caleb Asset

The birds may call to you!
The winds can whisper your name!
And the rivers reflect your beauty!
Like chrysolite, I will hold dearly to your heart
from childhood,
We plait and weave our heart in one.
On heap of sand, I build my first castle, with you as my queen.
Behind the shades, I gave you my first kiss.
There, you prepared and serve me your virginity
and in lust, I ate every piece
When I left, you gave me the tears of your bleeding heart,
Trusting I would return,
with the balm of love to bind it together.
My love, here I come!
With clays of my heart, I have built a hut.
Stay with me forever!
From the fountains of my love, I prepared a river.
Swim and bathe in its warmth.
Those tender breast, whose juicy milk kept me strong, are they firm still?
Your hips and lips, pretty in its curves, are they mine still?
The curls of your hair, filled with dandruff, do you keep them still?
Tell me not of your beauty.
In contest, the night calls to you.
But the moon and stars lost in shame.
Like gemstones, your beauty radiates above the heavens.
Under your smile, the sun hid in its eclipse.
Your face, painted in the cloud of my heart,
The earth applauds in admiration.
My love, stay with me!
For this love, engrave in the sand of time, will be a midnight tale,
…….under moonlight

CumuloNimbus

(A reaction to
JOINT LOVE co-written by Ogechi Veronica & Pacific Corlins)
.
let these run-on lines fly
on the high wings of eagrets
that swim on immortal airlines
to cloud nine – the planet of trailing betrayal
where trails of mine-hurts
lies in the tears of these eyes
with sighs that mime
the rythms of ties and bounds that broke
.
epistles of sorrowful rhapsody
wrap up and around glad melodies
scribbled on this sullen scroll
.
you, yes, you
you came in and squeezed this swollen heart
displacing from its sworn state of partial equilibrium
ridding off every ‘eight’ (hate) electron
that engulf its outermost shell of atom
.
but you’ve done worse than the moon could forgive
with this underdose of love you have administered
per os and not intravenously
.
a dagger you have thrust in this heart
a shipwreck of our love boat
on the noisy pacific ocean
beyond the ninth clouds
i faint through this thin faintest clouds
mourning the exit of the earth.
