the LIES we SPEAK

  In Sickness and in health For better or worse For richer, for poorer In good times and bad Until death, do us part… The lies we speak   I will roam the waters for you I will calm the raging seas too With you I am replete Without you, I will deplete… You are my…

IGNORE me

Ignore me  Insomnia lurks at my doorstep  Dancing agbadza to my erratic heartbeat  Making a mockery of my inability to sleep When you yearn to close your eyes for but a moment  Sleep eludes you like English from the mouth of an illiterate Ignore me  I know not where my poetic antics proceed  It is…
