okoye charles Poems

A Walk Through The Cemetry

Whose homes are these, they never say
Both big and small, here they all lay
Among the gnawing rodent and the hungry tick
Ticking while the lonesome time dawdles away

My Emotions Betray Me

Each time at night
When I lay down and darkness beclouds my sight
Before I fade to the land of dreams,
My emotions betray me.


On a Night dark and lonely
Possessed by fierce demons only,
Appeared a gem on heavens door.
So I saw and stopped, and stopped and saw;

A Picture

The moon rises in a darkened scene
In circle of grey, in black and white
A melancholic skies, the eyes do capture
A haunted portrait hanging on the walls of the heart.

Love Is Not Like The Mother's Womb

Love is not like the mother's womb,
where we dwell awhile and in peace sleep,
only to depart at the ninth moon.

I have not been to Nigeria but I have been to Zambia and I found that I could relate well to your poem. It was both graphic and eloquent. Thank you for submitting it Roy
