Introducing the amazing poet at KadaliBlog.
Me: “When the sun don’t shine
Can I be your shine?
When the lights are low
Will you let me hold your hand?
When everything don’t make sense,
And in times when the storm is too heavy,
Will you let my embrace be enough for you?
My ears will always be open to hear all your doubts.
Will my lips be enough to remind you of those things we always dreamed of together?
Will my eyes be enough for both of us when yours are heavy with tears?
When your heart’s heavy, will you remember that it has a home on my shoulder?”
Every time you say, ‘I Love You’, your eyes keep asking me these and many more questions. And in that moment I know. I just know you will always be here with me!
I have no choice but to say, ‘Yes…

You caught my attention.
With the sparkle in your eyes,
the joy in your smile,
did i mention you have a vibrant smile?
And then you decided to walk with me.
Even when i still prefered to walk alone.
You held my hand and i still pulled away,
shared my tears and i still called you a joker.
I was hesitant, you pulled away.
The joy in you smile faded,
but i still paid no attention
the sparkle in your eyes is no more,
the warmth of your laughter is gone,
my ink is dry,
you are radio silent,
my art, very abstract.
I can’t forever live in fear.
I have dodged,
I have danced around in circles. but now…
My eyes are fixed on you
Your taste is my attention.
Not my Novel fantasies,
I am off my writing and paint boards
You have my Attention
My heart with fear
I cant seem to see myself better
My knees weaken
yet i can’t tilt my cup as yet.
A lettered alter ego of what they used to be.
My knees have collected dust from hours of kneeling through prayer.
Rythms of my heartbeat vs my heartache.
Melodies in my heads fade.
my heart aint fickle,
its like whispers of the sea.
Iam burning, Iam waiting for a sign
Tear the Veil that covers my eyes.
lift me up and make me lay down.
the passion in your eyes,
ignites a fear in my heart.
Its Tonite baby, tonite.
I bow my eyes with pride,
my mind lingers,
Yes, am scared but,
the sparkle in you eyes has consumed me.
The fire in you touch blinds me with smoke,
I am burning on the inside
yet cold on the outside.
*whispers….Take me down, take me down.
My fear lays over me like thousands of men
your touch, comforts me. its magical.
My face is sore from smiling My heart is beating as though i just ran a hundred yard dash but i am still smilling Trying to stand tall, waiting. And … Continue reading #ApoemAday. puzzled lines
Like roses in the garden I will forever be
I do not know how I smell
But I promise it won’t be foul like jackfruit
Or pounded yam with beans
But like strawberries,
Better still, chocolate.
Lubricating creams will only make me old
Allow me use my own
I am not dry and cracked like you think
I’ve something left
Just make sure you eat right
Forget about the Guinness bottle
Let me blossom
And like a flower water me
I will grow into beauty you have never seen
Like a bouquet of red roses I will compliment you
Like sunflower I will light your face like a smile
And like the Nile I will never stop flowing.
My twins danced
Before my lover
My waist was shaking
His arms rejected the pillow
But preferred the waist of his lover
Not because it was so soft
I sang sweetly in the arena
And that was never my making
I forgive you my dear friend
For your ignorance and selfishness
Like an employee can’t make company rules
But the boss thinks of the company’s progress
Am glad you came around
Realized how much I hurt
How tirelessly I worked
But my salary never grew fat
My accounts just kept the same
Am glad you realized.
I forgive you and will not let you down
If your keep your promises
Then lets make this home
Tell our story and wait on our husband.
We need not the bath soaps and local herbs
Not even feminine to get me fresh
I stood staring down At my feet,
Not in fear,
i only shield the burning passion in my eyes.
I hid it from all men till your smile weakened my heart.
The fear to confess my love.
But my body betrayed me,
My heart was screaming
My soul demanded i raise my eyes.
But i am just a girl, an african girl.
Tradition and culture over power me,
even with when the whisper in your voice demanded
but i bowed in respect as culture states.
Just for you my love,
Just awaiting to raise them that night,
the night i will fully be yours.
Feel my hardened Nipples.
My saddened eyes demand.
Like roses wet with dew drops,
your breathe tickles acroos my skin
like the breeze sweeps across the ground,
kisses the rose petals ,
the beauty of your smile touches my soul.
Your voice weakens my knees
I mourn in agony
I want you desperately
Please do not leave me begging
Do not let the fire in me consume me.
