My lil girl; my mother

My princess; my queen

My foe; my lover

Your life I gave you

Just like you leased mine

I raised you

And that makes all else trite

Fire is mine

The cold of ice, yours

Your blood and mine, upon the anvil altar

Same which pierced you made me falter

To err would flay more than just a finger

My goddess; all that you are, I gave

My slave, whom over me is master

Your living is of my giving

Come fill my soul with laughter

Only we can get inside our inside jokes

Oh! How we love

Future and past become identical brooks

Gripped by this lust

My heart swears it’ll burst

As against it yours is thrust

Forever, we are bound by this trust

Just as blind as you’re bold

Save within my embrace

Your heart is cold

Watching you kill

My soul cannot but relish

The calmness of such skill

Is death not a woman? Only wish

And so easily we match her will

Swish for swish

Your shine, it bears my reflection

Of course; I poured into you my youth

My joy’s height is our interaction

Each an extension of the other

I flow into you, like you with me

Each, the root of the other

I draw from you, like you from me

My goddess, I am your god

Ying and yang? Nah

We twain are one

Like by the streams we lay

When warmth returns in May

Draw blood, my dear

And still them with fearMachete

To me she brings pride

Can a groom be otherwise

About his bride?

living memories (I)

The Mercedes was standing on its nose. Staring back at me through the windshield was the freshly resurfaced asphalt of the 3rd mainland bridge. Somewhere at the back of my mind, the thought registered, that normally, if I looked to my right I should be able to catch a glimpse of the only swimming pool at the University of Lagos.

I felt the equivalent of a mountain slamming into my butt, thighs and lower legs all at once, and my upper body swinging back into a vertical position. The highway was again spread out before me, and there was this blue sedan careening drunkenly right in front of the Mercedes. It’s tail end was right beneath the front bumper, as if it had shot out from beneath…. Continue reading
