Bad romance

I’m crying love;
My tongue is
writing you letters;
Letters of love, blind to
the emotions within.


For the Girls

For the girls I know

Its been a pleasure

From dark to brown to white

For the girls I once loved

For the girls who love me but I don’t

For the girls I wished I had cherished but never did

For the girls I never loved but pretended to

For the good and bad girls, I love u all

For the girls who hate but secretly love

For the girls who genuinely hate,

To every girl in this world I love u all.

But! To my rarest rose – the flower

that blossoms with affection,

true words escapes me so I smile in 

acknowledgement of what we both share .

Informal Lovers

my thought of you

strikes a harmonic chord

against the rhythm of my

thumping heart; the vibration

lingers on-and-on-and-on.

you’re the music i loved once,

but i just don’t love you

no more.


contradictory to every notion

i know; the motion of my

drum-stick against the tender

drum leads to regret every time

you walk-by.


i see the sunrise and i think

of you; but i just don’t love

you; still you forever remain

with me.


hugging and kissing; memory

lane casts solitary happiness

with no one to share with but



you are my poetry in words, my

regrets be the prose in free verse,

and all i can do is reminiscence

through these walls.

Letter to the unknown

Letter to the unknown

(Written out of context)

I woke up this morning
only to start missing you.
In my dreams I saw you
with another man through
a translucent glass.

I woke this morning only
to think I’m too far gone
in love with you. The signs
speaks for itself but I ignored
for fear of paranoia.

Time to move on, but already
my time invested; like an
overdraft. Still upon reflection
no gains observed except sex.

Show Me

It was valentines day
Here you are, there I am
ready to propose.

Beauty rare like rose
Till end of time; love
forever, I love for
the moment

You say I’m yours
I reply with smile
My girl, I need you

Why don’t you show
me your love
because I don’t want
to argue all night

Its valentines day;
show me, you love
me and you won’t
have to say a word
till the break of dawn.

Sweet Lady

Fine lady

would you

be mine.


others you

give me no


You’re the

rarest flower,

you bloom with


and affection.

Make a fool

of me not, for

I have nothing

but this subscription

to your love.

For as long

as you live

I love you,

more and more;

even if you want

me to kiss places.

From the

kitchen floor

to the table

to the backyard

to the bedroom

we’ll be breaking

stuff because

that’s what it’s

made for.

Connotation to Brown Love

To answer, I opened
your book and freshened
my thoughts.

Regardless! No love lost,
the rudiments’ of love
conflicts meanings in one vessel.
Through the drama I stuck to your commentary.
Your love faded, and
my heart beats no longer,
but simply linger

Life of girls so contagious,
how surprising I’m married to
myself like a divorcee.

Verily my love gradually thins.
I dream of rhyming you a river,
but my mind quiver.
Nice dim light like Sulphur,
But now I see clearer….
This love is a short thing.

8|20 8|19 15|22|5|18.

Concealed thoughts
switches to code mode,
but I’m no Leonardo.
Hey Mono Lisa your
half body
half thought
half mind
is a full enigma.
but by no means
are you half measure
in your pleasures..
A sensual gratification
unleashed by my touch.

Explicit 1


You caught me off guard,
as your tear drop moisten the soil,
I massaged your feet sensually
with jasmine and vanilla oil.
My heart unfolds, as I peered
through your blouse

I feel the sudden rush of blood,
Intense symphony fills the air
Our body moving comprehensively
in harmonic synchronisation,
The birds begin to tweet
Your spring begin to gush
The river begin to overflow
The dam now at its full capacity
The champagne bottle finally pops
Time begins to rewind as we unwind.

Now I’m beginning to slow
Now I begin to tire
Now darkness has fallen
So we lit fire, and wrap together like a cocoon,
as we reminisce under the moon light.

I shrugged as the alarm rang,
come to think about it,
it was all just a bad dream.

Brown Love

photoTo my dearest
Although I’m angry
I still think of thee
Your brown eyes
Your wholesome monolithic body
Your incredible stubbornness
You with me and I with thee
perplexes many
They see not what I see in thee
But I care not as long as you ‘re with me
Thou make loving you a heavy task
So you wonder if I love you

To be continued

I Love them


I love them,
They are delicate creatures
I love them
They make life worth living
I love them
They help you help themselves
I love them
They are very emotional
I love them
They help you reach your goals
I love them
They can kill you
I love them
They love us but they never show
I love them
But not as much as I love you.
