Dark place

Onye rolled in dirty gritty slime. She locked herself in this dark space, devoid of air, every time she remembered his hands on her body. She peered through the thick storm windows at the other Onye, her hands lingering on the frame. Unable to reach her, she could only wish she was her as she … Continue reading Dark place

Different shades

#longpostalert I wrote 'The different shades of yellow,' in January 2017. It was inspired by a setting sun and the different hues it radiated one random evening. What I didn't know at the time was how this poem could reflect the many sides of human nature too. That was until three days ago when I … Continue reading Different shades

Rain drops

Pitter patter I thump Gently then loudly on their roofs Their thin veils And their moods My aid is at hand Wrapped as one We make sure They feel our wrath and love He tells me where to go I know what to do I wet the appetite of the lil babe Buried deep in … Continue reading Rain drops

What do you see?

"Why do you paint a gloomy picture? You are quite adept at making the best situation look dire. Do you want to have another go?" "Yes, please. So, I see a lady in a red swimsuit lying on her back. She is quite close to the sea... so close." He throws his hand up in … Continue reading What do you see?

May light be yours

O'er you may be gloom Tears may drip, but 'twill be fine Like stars in the night Daintly hanging up above Let hope shine through the dark ❤Aweni It's international widow's day. Give yourself the chance to find the light again. It may be hard, but please hang in there. ❤Aweni
