Happy New Year


With the tireless oscillations of the clock's hands
The colour display of grey's firmament
Moments passings change in an eye's twinkle
Time gives credit to age.

Musings of shame and the adventures of my fickle heart
Shredded hopes like shattered glass
The demise of a glorified era
Twelve months fallen, like fainting dominos

Standing on this spot
Fading pictures of an elapsed empire of time
The new year knocks softly
As though I had a choice over its destiny

Enters another year
Modules of time evenly divided
Resolutions, checklists, diaries, planners, reminders, memos,
Weapons for the journey

Time will elapse,
Seasons will change
The eventual passing of the year would give fate a definition
My months may fall, but my lips would eke out a smile.
THIS YEAR WOULD BE SPLENDID

Happy New Year Universe.

A FLICKER OF DARK



The joy of birth
Leaves the mind boggling
At the scare of death.

For as time marks a beginning
So its tireless hands
Tick to an abrupt ending.

It is not death that we should fear
But the sorrow accompanied
By an unfulfilled life.

In the darkness of its clenched fist,
An abduction sharper
Than the edge of a crescent moon

The curtain falls on an era,
Yet somewhere on the sphere
Marks another genesis.

 In your seemingly boundless,
Yet limited time
Your vigour and enthusiasm
Was second only to your will

For it takes
True masculine strength
To beget two sons

Time has frozen
Darkness has fallen
Your time has completed its oscillation

But in your demise,
We wouldn’t suffer
Salty tears to roll down

But heave a sigh
Of concordance
Because God has called you home

Rest in Bliss Osondu Alozie
-         For Gazie, a brother and true friend.

No Love




There’s no passion in your eyes, no fire to justify the folly of my feelings

There’s no warmth in your body, no comfort absorbed when I hold you close

There’s no smile on your lips, no motivation to ply this vague journey called “Romance”

There’s no wonder in your thoughts, no surprises to keep the suspense alive

There’s no magic in your touch, no reaction to change my life status

There’s no fragrance from your skin, no reason to come close to you again

There’s no melody in your voice, no cause to break this ghastly silence

There’s no beauty in you, no reason to look your way when boredom clinches my soul

There’s no rhythm in your gait, no reason to walk beside you

There’s no spark in your kiss, no stimulus to bring on the goose bumps

There's no joy in your presence, no fulfillment in your appearance

There’s no absence in your absence, perfection was missing when you came in

In the end I realize there’s no love for you

Somehow



Somehow I can't seem to hear you but there's communication.

Somehow my mind is filled with memories accompanied by fantasies.

Somehow my being is propelled to activity by the zest of love's reality.

Somehow my purpose for being a part of nature is larger than life.

Somehow, somewhere exists the reason that makes all my reasons reasonable.

Somehow you are the ONE.

Bruises

Itz the sight of my fulfillment
Pivot to my joy
The demise of my trepidation
Courage to change the world
Itz the reason I sing in the shower
I’ve found my place on the sphere

Slowly my joy dwindles
I feel dry and dead as a leaf
Like your ears, I’m a part of you
But you have no sight of me
Agony sips my strength
Draining the life off my feisty self

My brain is growing cold
With thoughts of you in another’s arm
I’m just a passerby
Slowly descending the height of my debacle
I’ve seen diversity in life
But my grief was conceived in joy’s womb
As I wait and watch, hoping and wishing
That my secrets are whispered to your heart
“I’ve always been here”
And there’s time no longer
In the end you’ll know
That you had my heart
But it might just become a memory

Then your tears will know no bounds
And I’ll be fulfilling my destiny,
Charting life’s course.

Fear is your heart's keep


Tears are dropping
Like candle wax melting
Evil is lurking outside the door
I hear the door rattle
The wind shivers as the night air
whistles
Blowing fear deep in your marrow
There is no reason for courage
For no mortal can stand the fright
Sit waiting, watching, counting the
seconds
To your delightful debacle
A terror long waited
Slowly sipping existence
This is nothing but the forerunner
For your true demise waits to take you
in slumber
Your screams are loud as a whisper
You slowly drown in a pool of
trepidation
You’re blessed with the curse of death
As the clock strikes midnight
You gasp for life
But your destiny is fulfilling
“knock knock”, it’s the end at your door
Slowly your life is drained
To an everlasting slumber
As the world whispers “adios”

Blurry Vision



Usually I would make my words rhyme
But honestly there's no time
The one who used to light my fire
Has tagged my being "Beautiful Liar"
In this case, I'm the accused
To a filthy rag reduced
Who exercises affection
For the lost souls of attraction
My life became a blunder
A feat that made me wonder
How I could throw in the garbage
The sunshine that locked me in love's cage
But this is what you get
When you remember to forget
That you're dealing with a girl's heart
Excruciating like the sting from a fiery dart
And I can't remember
What happened in September
Now I'm far away
Living life day my day
Everything I said was right
But you chose to take flight
This is the part where I stand aside
To watch you and let events slide
Heartache is never my mission
But you're struck by "Blurry Vision"

Romantic Slaughter

You've been my reason
For joy and laughter
The reason to smile
And life's new chapter
The cause to be loved
And be happy ever after
To express affection
No matter the weather
By your side
I feel life getting better.
In your arms
the world I can conquer
You stuck close
just like a brother
And I wanted nothing
To put us asunder
We weren't dating
But were birds of a feather

My actions showed
that I loved no other
I guess you felt it
coz you loved me better
But in the end
You weren't my lover.

Out of the blues
came another
Who's bent
on keeping you closer
I couldn't envy
a fellow brother
Just trying
to satisfy his hunger
And break a bond
that was getting stronger.
There's a sharp pain
in my bladder
As I watch
another brother
Slowly appear
to take my corner
Now I'm thinking
even in slumber
My favorite meal
cannot cure my hunger
My body is here
but my soul is yonder
Lost in trance
coz life is a blunder
You were my reason
For joy and laughter
But now
I can only wonder
How this love
could end in the gutter
Once again
I've become a hunter
Searching for love
and a new chapter
As I lay on my bed
sipping water
I mourn my death
by ROMANTIC SLAUGHTER.

Today is my B'day
