(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.
