Hold Unto Me - Poem by ONOJA ANTHONY

Hold me so tight else I slip through time
Hold unto my gaze so fixed else u
lost them among crowd of timeless time a time
Hold unto my lovely tales else you hear them
no more and long recite them in ashes
scold of many empty nights..
Hold close my warm cherished lips
else they gum to another red smooths Roswell
In downtown Atlantis among the lofty hills
Hold unto my elephant arms else they cling
unto hugs from states and bring back
the fears you saw in bloom of nightmares.
Hold unto my fingers when you can
else you see a golden flash or diamond
splashes dazzling from rings of unbreakable proposal.
Hold unto my chest while you have my grip
moving a sluggish race of beam
else you lose them to busy street upheavel
and recite its comforts in dreams of past nightfall. Hold unto my love while you can
for sooner I may grow wings and learn to fly away.
