TWISTED

​Life is full of surprises…
Each lines comes like a gift
We yearn to open it
The unexpected bridges our thought.

we open our arms to catch,
we flip our body to it,
we taste our bud to set
yet it keeps giving us amusements.

Disappointments most times
the guilt of losing hunts us
anxiously we drove onto frustration
Only to meet our end in trying

So beautiful! 
like the wings of a young butterfly
only to weak away within our frame of time,
tears gulp our throats.

But there’s always a vision to see
A being willing to go the miles with
life is a gift…
Life; real or a mirage. 

On the wounded skate
I came,
You were apprehensive
Yet you took me in
I waited till your heel heals
Lasted for months of dog years
Every broken plates I picked,
I thought we would lay forever
So I Promised you forevermore
Now all are layed in mud

Am sorry to bruise your heart
I never meant to be rude to your heart
Though our distance took us apart
I used to keep you in my shirt
But we both kick out to the start.
No more lifeline to give me
Since You gave out the last one
Without thinking if am worth it
Though my expectations are too defined
People change, I understand,
That’s why I tender Apology

OUR HIDDEN LIGHT

Posted: March 21, 2017 by Emmanuel in creative writting

As our light found us in our bed,
All stories are next to ours
You think too much over the future
while i lived in the present.

Our stories are more than all
who you want me be, am not there yet
though your friends think am hopeless
But i gave you all my heart.

We no longer feel our stars
but we still feel our long touch
wish we never stayed apart
Now our broken ropes are so hard to mend.

THE BROKEN LINE

Posted: March 9, 2017 by Emmanuel in creative writting

At the door it waits,
A call to my own time
Her snowy unblinking eyes, deep to my soul
My scary thoughts of lossing thee

It makes my silent slayed
Foolishness of my wisdom
I lay in siege for my fall
Yet I dont wana walk away so easily.

We couldn’t burn
We couldn’t melt
We couldn’t bend
Now we cave in.

Felt we were borne to shine
Thought we were scorge to rise
Now we walk down the broken line
With our fate laying in tear.

THE DIM LIGHT

The dim lights hid our faces
laughter hid our sorrows
Not a cheerless face in the crowd
Come join our reveries

Our heart keeps it merries
Our true nature elopes
no secret in a darkened light
As if we know no sadness

We sat round our circle
Exchanging pleasantries with ease
Tasting the sweetness of bitterness
The tick tack clamps down

Our timing runs with no eagerness
Ranging from big to little
Every sorrow seems to fade
In truth, it’s only hidden

9 YEARS OLD

Posted: December 1, 2016 by Emmanuel in creative writting

Imagine those times of laughing cries,
Those times you came home late,
But still you kiss me goodnight,
wish i made my first kite with you,
I will do anything to be 3 years old again.

Those time when you walk me to school,
times i ate with fishes on my tongue
And stews splashed on my wool.
i stopped bedwet,but you are not here,
Wish i could be 4 years again.

I remember those sunday evening,
When i choose what to watch on our TV
Your smile reveals your soothing gap,
wish i had those jumps with you,
I will do everything to be 5 again.

Those quiet story time
when the moon shines
And the stars gets out of their hides
as you quench my thirst with milk,
I will do something to be six again.

I really miss those touches,
How you lay me on your lap
As sleep quenches my fire dark,
Your deep voice makes me quack,
i will do everything to be 7 again

I wish we had those talks
when a boy turns to a man,
How to go out with girls,
And how best to treat my wife,
i forgive you as i love my 8.

wish we could hold hands
As we take a long walk;
you show me trees by names,
you squize my hands to sooth
As Your voice call me names.

I will do nothing to be 9 again
You left without saying goodbye
My crying turns to tears
not even a last word to make me smile,
wish you were here within miles

I SAW A BEAUTY

Posted: November 28, 2016 by Emmanuel in creative writting

This is the stand
which makes her name sound
Like the gentle waves
the movement of the stream.

Nothing beyond her beauty
Uncertainty to the beholder,
Unclear to the owner
Yet nothing seems to shout.

On her Walking heels,
she bends with her button
Another media to shine
I saw a lasting beauty.

The white sets
covered with the soft rounds
A sideless curve
pressed in her shape.

lights,
Her nails are selected
straight with the fingers
no grease out of her waist

TILL WE SLEEP IN DEATH

I met you while i was dark,
You lit me up.
You made me feel
As if i was enough
I loved you then,
but you never knew.

I may be dead with speech,
Thats why i write you this,
So Everybody knows,
I will keep out every sorrow.
The world is passing
Yet we are gonna stay.

You keel me over with smile
I almost forgot am older,
i wana dance with you right then.
i knew i needed you but i never show,
Then i played the cool guy
because i am scared to loose you.

I am so in love with you
I hope you know,
I wana stay with you
Till our grey hair becomes old
I will wake you up with breakfast,
With songs and with kiss on head.

I want to spend with you
The rest of my days
You are beautiful as ever
My promise;
You will stay that way everyday
Till we sleep in death Together.

WHERE I BELONG

​I was alone,
Laying in my couch.
Then you came along,
You took way my thoughts.

I felt like I am gone,
Then you gave me love
A trust I can’t deny
You swallowed me in your Sea.

I sang a song
To my muse
A very special one,
My expression of love.

I sworn to my heart,
To smile and cry with you
A place I can’t be lost
Your heart; my home.
