Estrangement - Poem by Alade Abayomi Idris

Nothing is as sweet as you
The taste of your tongue
When i cover ravenously
Sugar of your skin
As my wanderer journeyed
And the unnamed tickling of your inside
That send me to paradise
Surpasses all comprehension.

I live with taste
I never knew its uniqueness
Until the wild wind blew you
Off my arm reach
Off my leg length
I yearn for your taste
I want to see heaven again
But non to take me
The wild wind blew you together with your chariot of fire.

I sought the like of your sweetness from friends
Debacles!
I traveled top of earth
Their assumed sweetness tasted sour
I traveled bottom of earth
Theirs embittered me
And to other two sides
I cried and cried
For my system adapted to yours
And yours alone will spin.

My hunger has gone wild
And my thirst, unquenchable by waters of earth
Your absence purnished me
The wind purnished
But not you to your beloved
Willy nilly calls that beckoned
Call i will to wind by its name
Willy nilly he will convey me
In his cold chariot
Through the cold winter
To the summer without
Where our play shall have no end.
