THE BLEEDING PEN ANTHOLOGY 53
LOVE IN PRISON
And it came in through the front door,
with wings spread and shining fur.
Under that heart is hatred built,
with lost and stolen guilt.
Good morning needs examination,
I am sorry begat retaliation.
All in the fold of unfolded,
Reason love in the prison
Her heart I stole,
But it is burning like a coal,
Hysterically she laughed,
For my heart has been broken into half.
Will you be my love?
It has been stamped from above,
Now my head I couldn’t turn
For her love like a P.O.P I worn.
Loving someone, harbouring feeling.
Being unable to express that which you’re feeling.
Being enslaved by your own emotion.
Unable to propose your motion.
My love for you is strong.
Like Agege bread, always long.
But lost person I am.
Unable to express that which keeps me balm.
T’was captured when made known.
Crime it was tagged to define you my own.
They broke the knot and my heart left ajar.
My mouth they tied not to cry further.
They left my thoughts in shattered ponder.
Coerced to accept norms of confusing wonder.
I to concur to death of love so true.
In pretence it was fallacy all through.
O,yet we trust, we love, that’s somehow good.
We love wrongly,we chain the heart for good.
We imprison our soul in the name of Love.
When we love without a feeling it never love.
Till life becomes a flower garden
I’ll always make you smile, never a burden
Love you till eternity,
Will keep you for as long as eternity.
The butterfly flies high in the meadow
Pollinating the flowers; you’ll see that through the window.
To have you I practised agriculture
Specializing in the beautiful aspect called floriculture.
The basis of your affection was enigma
That I couldn’t solve without the prayers of moma
Putting shackles in my hands withhold the time to peck
Wish to break the gate and promise you diamonds but I’m wreck.
Have you brought me this far to suffer?
This isn’t what you promised to offer.
You promised happiness.
But offered a pill of sadness.
For long,I have endured.
Thinking a solution will be procured.
But what do I get in return.
Bitterness with no one to cure.
Till night becomes day
My love for you becomes night and day
The prison walls grows an ear
The cart-pushers stare at our hair
Love in prison beget exultant
From audience as puissant
Swollen the hands maim
That dawdle to maim
Dark cellar with lovely gold chains on
With stares of inmates falling heart upon.
Now he is here “It’s karma”
For he led us here ‘judgement final!”
Suddenly, ‘he’ love jerked from sleep,
From the torments of a bad sexy dream.
Oooh! They all want me there;prison
They forget am the sweet hypnotizing poison.
The story i can’t tell when she left,
My heart buff turning right and left.
Giving grace to the demon of love,
who shatters lives without a thought.
I can’t tell the mermaid i saw,
which zeal my heart like Saul.
going to Damascus perturb
Avail in words that could disturb.
For decades I nursed this affection,
That makes the heart Terpsichore’s to perfection.
When encounter a tender glance,
Or take sojourn in a swift trance.
I have adorn with colours.
When before the love got a curse.
I have painted it with stripes
When before the love killer strikes.
Beside the flowing sea
Different type of vegetables was seed,
Same as nature of love,
Some are bad, many were rove.
I promise you love when you’re single
But now we’re living mingle,
My promises may be in vain
In the colourless flood of rain.
My love for the Master is so strong,
And my heart fills with a melodious song,
But am still a slave to sin and it’s father;
Oh,my love is imprisoned like a bird and the fouler.
I love you says my heart,
Striving by all means to make impact,
But no,the love has been captured,
No place for it features.
Hawkers of pleasure,
That sell the most precious treasure
They hawk their body honey-comb,
On the street they roam.
You tag them adulteress
By selling their emotion to satisfy men in distress
They, you unlawfully arrest of committing heinous offence,
Against you, they are helpless with no defence.
