Chibueze Oscar Osuji


A Drop Of Love


Windows of heaven open to my heart
T'ward my vaning-wind and my latitude
Across lone arid and sterile desert
There I lust for love in my solitude.

My heart in-need of little love in-deed
T' hold onto in perilous times of spite;
When the world grasp all things from me in greed
Leaving me wanting and as blank as white.

E'er-wanting a drop of love in a daught'r
Of eve; To paint my life as rainbow,
Fill'd to the brim with sweet mirth and laughter;
All these I shall gain if love falls below.

(Sad: A loner for the m'ment I've become)
Glad; I'll be when a drop of love is come.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
