For The Forsaken II

• For The Forsaken (Stanza 1)


Edited with Creatic version 1.0

the stanza in a picture

So unheeded and repulsive do I feel,

 like a little dog forsaken,

Labelled as of Shem’s descent, I stand scant chances of progression,

Blessed with this bitter soil on which my labours are futile,

Like an attempt to catch the wind, crying out to the Man is useless.

*****
This’ the second stanza of ‘For The Forsaken’, I’m still reserving the full poem.

That’s It, Really.

Red Heart Diaries: The Lover’s Song

image

Love you passionately I will,

As a house lizard loves the wall.

Like fish stays in water,

In my heart you shall bide forevermore —

For you are the onliest lady I’m gone on,

The Michelle to my Obama.

And so I sing for you a melody,

Trying to tug at your heartstrings.

 

The sky you are, and I, a cloud,

Derelict am I in your absence.

You are the sun to my moon,

Not once can I scintillate without you.

Till you came and made it complete,

This heart was an unraveled puzzle.

And so I sing for you a melody,

Trying to pull at your heartstrings.

 

*****

The fourth installment in Red Heart Diaries. Having shared four poems, I’ll pause for a while.

That’s it, Really.

Red Heart Diaries: The First Kiss

Red Heart Diaries: Falling

Our lips caressed and it felt right,

When my tongue tasted yours, I felt light,

As if this body was surging into the clear sky,

And in magic I believed, never anew to label it a lie.

The second piece from Red Heart Diaries, ‘The First Kiss’.

That’s it, Really .

Red Heart Diaries: Falling

image

 

With the protectiveness

Of a ghetto tortoise, I inexorably

Warded my lush heart, till from heaven you

Unexpectedly flew down, unthawing my carapace

Now anew I am falling,

S l o w l y and s w i f t l y,

Like a wide leaf departing from a stem,

Again with gaeity is my being suddenly filled,

Like a hungry ant on the mouth of a cup of honey,

For from this destruction is born the greatest of love.

 

*****

This is the genesis of my Red Heart Diaries, a series of love poems I’ve been crafting lately.

That’s it, Really.

Black Excellence



Dripping with melanin like a waterfall,

Is this magnificence that is my skin,

Thick are its layers as is my soul,

The verticality of my hair matches my values,

The deep beauty that is my eye colour,

Marries the earth on which I stand.

Bloodsuckers!

They diligently crown you with a Bible of juicy names,

Deceivingly flooding you with relentless eulogies,

Their words, in companionship with their sedulous smirks,

Channel into your heart, awakening gaeity and pride…

*****

A 4-line excerpt from the first stanza of the longest poem I’ve ever penned! I’ll post the whole poem later.

That’s it, really.

For The Forsaken

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

Lips become motionless like flies incarcerated in a spider web,

Head wrapped in a plastic bag, I thirsty for a little dose of oxygen,

To regurgitate these words and thoughts caged inside me,

Why should I be branded sacrilegious for unveiling my perspective?

*****

This is just a teaser, I reserve the full poem ✌🏿️✌🏿✌🏿

That’s it, really.
