A Memo of Love: A Poem

My Asanwa,
Don't hold my emotions hostage like a prisoner behind bars whose world shattered like many pieces of a fallen glass

Like the silky smooth body of a penguin sliding down the frozen ridge of ice down the antarctica, let my words find the smooth edges of your heart with serenity

For my soul is a room of blossoming love enchanted on the cold tracks of beautiful waterfalls as beauty sits with amazing dimples

The sky has your name splashed all over its walls; walk on the breeze of life, cuddle it with caressing touches, bait it and hold it for the pleasure of my soul

I am Ikemba,
Come to me and whisper into my ears the obscenities of your heart; lift me up with your words and flower my thoughts with your sexiness;
A journey in love I have begun; let's walk hand in hand, smiling to the foolishness of our thoughts

Flash me a smile and watch me rape your heart with kisses, a hug and peck

This is for you, the reaper of my soul
She's infected me with her obi uto;
And now my life dance the atilogu dance like the skilled maidens from the days of Ogbuagu
Mine, mine, mine
Stretch your hands baby,
Let me squeeze in your warmth and sleep like a newborn in the mother's enclave
Invite me, invite me into your heart for I am cold...
