Sand in My Whirlwind

whirlwind

 

Your very existence is elusive, like smoke in dark corridors

With shadows and ashes dancing upon the walls

In a deceptive twirl of distance

Brought about by years of silence and inaction

Dreams with no reaction

Prayers met with no response

And cries failing to elicit succour

 

So, I watch you dance

And my body seeks to dance with you

You slip through my fingers like water through a net

My watching eyes fill with religious zest

And you keep beckoning me to come forth

 

So I turn myself to dust and dance with you

Together we whip up the sands into a storm

Together, we all became one; together we thrive

 

 

– Omojola Badmus
