Remember?

Remember?

How my eyes could caress your soul

How our minds became one being

How we did not need to guess

Remember?

How I would touch you there

How I would set you on fire

How I was all you needed ad infinitum

Remember?

How your zeniths were like life!

How your body craved mine

How we would simultaneously soar

Remember?

Our plans for us?

Our faith when we looked at us?

Those loving, unspoken vows?

Remember?

Missing Us

What happened to us?!

Why do we still bother?

Nothing is as it was.

………

Now we have nothing to talk about

We used to jabber and babble

These days it’s like we hurt our mouth

Tiny issues typically erupt in trouble.

……….

Lo hearts; now calcified into stone

Are we trapped, or fighting for ‘us’?

Sex and passion… Long gone

Politeness used to conceal animus

Unfaithfulness is not sex alone.

Palava…

Why man and woman matter serious?

Na just one habit dey bring problem,

When you operate ‘me’ instead of ‘us’

Na there love dey begin condemn.

°°°°°°°°°°

Reason this man and woman matter

Na selfishness dey bring palava

If you no dey involve ya partner

E no go tay, una go soon scatter.

°°°°°°°°°°

Man and woman hear my voice

Love na conscious decision

Loyalty and fidelity na ya choice

You go choose friction abi passion?

Here & Now

Lovemaking or sex

In Abu Dhabi or Zanzibar

Half a dozen; or six

We are what we are.

°°°°°°°

We are deeper than sorrow

What we do has no cure

Love we cannot disavow

No one will ever love you more.

~~~~~~~

Sit on your throne Khaleesi

I; I am, decrees it

Lo… We are growing within thee

We are perfect; we are complete.

“““`

Lovemaking or sex

In Maui or Libya

Half a dozen; or six

We are what we are.

Inevitable

There is a quota

It will be met one way or another

By you or another

This need must be met.

Said quota is a desire

Arguably a burning need

Disagree all you want

This need must be met.

It mostly sets the sexes askew

They become inept umpires

Regulating psychological needs

This need must be met.

The woman must talk

The man must have sex

Each at moments deemed ludicrous

This need must be met.
