Little Dark-Board - Poem by Kolade Seun

How concise can I be;
Explicating these writings on my little dark board?
I've tried decoding; Just too odd!

In a classroom of mine own;
With myriads of confusing mediocritic pedagogues;
None is willing to take me on!
Just continuous inscribtion of these words!
I can't decipher what they really mean;
So I dont know what to do with these words!

Who can help ease mine little dark board?
Oh! I see...
No wonder! These writings can't be cleaned off;
it's a permanent marker called love!

Mine little dark-board in a state of chaos;
Deceit, written in bold words;
Lust, written in italicize words;
infatuation, feasting on so many spaces of mine little dark board...
Who'd help me clean these pieces of vanities, off mine 'little dark board? '

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The poem is about the heart of the young teenagers. The thoughts that go on in them. The early infatuational experiences. The meaning of the poem is a deep one, as we all know, our 'dark-boards'(the heart) is like the universe on its own. Its exploration will take forever.
