To You My Love: A POEM

My Asanwa,
Let me swim on the breathe that comes from your mouth and paddle to safety by the twitching of your eyelid

Let me pack the sorrows of your heart and dump it in the river of clouds to mix with the mist congealed in the history of looted past to be forgotten for eternity

I will awake all night with glances to stare at the prettiness of your face

Shut my ears with your words, angel
Write me the desires of your heart and lay it on the table of my soul
Together we shall climb the steps of love forever entwined
Gorgeous is the color of your lips
Your eyes are painted in lusty shadows
You dance like Ugomma, the most endowed maiden whose hips twist and turn in succulent pleasure

Each night I shout your name in my dreams like a lunatic struck with a bout of agwu,

Our story shall be told as folktales under the eyes of the moon and the stars will sit as witnesses to celebrate our union
Your love is madness to my eyes for my soul begs to nestle in your warmth forever
Swear to me this day that your heart will beat only for me

Nneoma,
I will reach the heavens and pluck the leaf of love for your everlasting delight
I will shake hands with the gods, one and all their smiles in the bag to share with your kinsmen
Sweet one, go to the gate of my heart
Lock it with your key and chain our love with the veins of your heart for my soul is surrendered in your care
I will willingly walk the walks with my last breathe for your soul to live;
Yes! For eternity...
