I Need Your Shoulder To Cry On - Poem by Ejiofor Alisigwe

If you should leave me ever
Stripped, frustrated by the will of mind to liver
The wages between a busted point to bare
To gape and gurgle, to swallow my loose tongue
And left only to hug at the air you left
I will surely die alone, a broken heart

To all the forgone happiness we shared
I remember like the present to the brimming bond
With my ears erect with animal cravings, saturated with your muse
Mystic. Incandescence. Venus flytrap
Cast the spell of your love lulled tangential
Lost in it's shower cascading in full tap
We flowed in tide, titillate, tipple and total

Here we are now between two worlds apart
Faulted by my difficult dimensions to adapt
I am sinking like a lead
I need your shoulder for my head
My spluttering is a shout for help
As I struggled with strangled breath below dept
Clinging to my insensate refuge
To cure my eyes voidant
The insalubrious blankness as I repent

As I gulped deep into my liquid tomb
Would you forgive my dumdum gob
And dropp the bomb to send me home
To you my avenging angel, please?
