My Woman Ix: On Her Voice - Poem by Chime Justice Ndubuisi

Do you know the place
Where the mountain kisses the heaven?
Do you know where God hid his face
When Adam lost his clean?
It is that place Maamaa
I'll take you to on a lover's day,
The place Israelites first picked Manna
And later lost their way.
Had I learnt a tree to climb
It'd be easier to reach heaven from here.
Had you been a lamb,
Your smile would soften God's face.

Do you know where lightening
Gets its flash from?
Do you know where comes the roaring
Of the thundering storm?
But it is not as thunderous as
Your suiting voice
Or as penetrating as
Your love-making noise.
Had I to choose your love to trade
For another enchantress' sweet spell
I wouldn't sell even for a diamond-jade
Even if the moon for me should fall.

Do u know where the waves lay their head?
Do you know, do you know
The place the oceans drop dead
Or the gathering place of snow?
The stone-cold silence alone
Could cause an earthquake.
Had I the power to make or take
I wouldn't dare across there,
For fear this fire might quench
Which burns in my heart so dear,
I'd prefer to savour the stench
Of the dead ocean only if you're there.
