By John Chinaka Onyeche
My woman -
She is the last strides
Those little drops of water
That I gulp in my throat
As the sun gets the water dried up
With her hands on the rainy nights
She covers my naked body
And the morning of merciless harmattan
She fans the embers of my fires
That burns into an eternity of pleasure
How do you call me a lost soul -
Where within her thighs I found paths
Those leading to a kingdom of peace
Or is it for her apples that feed the saved?
My woman is the lace that veils
Between me and the ocean of passion
Where I resubmerge my loving
When life hits on the surface of feelings
And the power to stand up for another
