My Rose

Hello, I have here a poem written by a friend, @Headbobba . Your comments would be gladly received. Enjoy, share and have a great week ahead.

Time has elapsed since we’ve last seen

I’m not sure how fair the seasons have been

But I know age has done you well

Though, I cannot disprove if the years were not hell

For just like old wine, you have gotten better with time

Thorough with twines, rewarded with succulent grape vines

I wish I could express the true splendor

In all of its magnitude my eyes set upon

Such a beautiful being

Never seen eyes so ravishing

Lips so stunning,

When you smile, shine brighter than the fiercest of the sun’s beams

Bedazzling, even your adornments herald

For the picture perfect height, comely bust, impeccable appearance

My lady, are you not the epitome of grace?

Many stars in the universe, yet none can match the elegance you display

You are a star, you are my star

I pray we constellate, create the envy of the sky

Slip Away

Imprisoned thoughts, we open our mouth and let them slip away

Words that can hurt for a lifetime and in seconds they slip away

Weakness, as we let go of their hands and watch them slip away

Hot tears from a melted heart and we let it slip away

Down from the cheeks we once kissed, gravity helps sweep away

Down on the snow it melts away as they try not to slip away

The bottomless cup of agony in hand, as they gently sip away

Watching as their stature of perfection is jaggedly chipped away

Running as the road seems unending and time slips away

Reaching for the horizon’s comfort as the day slips away

Out of sight, into the night as they speedily creep away

Hoping to awake as I hear Bob Acri’s sleep away

Up Nepa!

Hello, its been a while, there’s been a lot going on asides my seeming part-time writer’s block. Well here is a post from a friend, Busola Taiwo, a topic all of us are very familiar with. Your comments would be gladly received. Enjoy, share and have a great week ahead. New post from yours truly would follow soon. By the way, can you smell water? An elephant can smell water up to 3 miles a way, I bet you didn’t know that.

We live in constant fear
Of your inconstancy
Forsake your drunken moods, we beg
Return to sobriety

We fear thee as we fear our Lord
So much so that we pray
“I really want to watch this match
PLEASE don’t take the light today”

But are our prayers not futile?
Don’t we always pray in vain?
You tease us with low current, then
Disconnect us again.

We gave our time and gave our money
All that we had, and more
But this disease of yours, it seems
For it there is no cure.

Forgive us for we have lost all faith
Forgive our uncomprehending pride
Forgive us our unrelenting efforts,
Forgive us, for we have tried.

Forgive us our lack of understanding
We suffered as well you know,
We were told you’d be well by 2012
We held fast like a dog to his bone.

No signs of improvement have you shown
And that is the reason why
When you say you will be better soon
We survey you with a cynical eye

“Really” we sneer, “that’s what you said
Yesterday and the day before.”
I wish there were support groups
For organizations, too.
Alcoholcs have AA, drug addicts have rehab,
But what can we do for you?
