Rookie - 58 Points (Ondo State, Nigeria)

Black Street


Hushed black street
Before my eyes poses
Misty narrow alley

Unattuned to my solid soles.
Nippy sensations into my cranium sink
Stacks of tremulous quiver

As I halt like stiff tall trunk of a rad old oak
With a stirring of dreadful doubts
To propel onwards or backwards.

Intuition tarries at crossroads;
Should I repel footprints or tread
A path unknown alone?

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
