Ifemi, Pride Of My Youth - Poem by Adedeji Ologbenla

Ifemi,

Your face, nature’s hand painted

That which wondrous God affords



At your sight, dawn blushes

Your majestic entrance

betrays the potency of darkness



Eyeballs that burn scary

Burst out in passion desire

Longing to see under the dress



Razor blade kiss turns blunt

At the touch of your sensual lips

Bringing down all ecstasies



With each step, earth implode

Castle shrinks as you approach

Skyscrapers a step to where I am



To me you are coming

As beautiful and mighty-full

Mine you are, to forever keep



Here she comes

To cast the veil of her soul away

And lay bare all for me to behold



Ifemi, my teenage love

That lingered ’till today

One of blossoming blooms of beauty



A passionate glance my eyes stole

Your real beauty will I see unbridled

Any other who sees, be blind’d



My breathe your skin will it caressed

The fragrance of your feel will I percieve

Any other who smells, be poison’d



Ifemi, mine you are

With you will our brig sail the mighty ocean

To the limpid future, we’ll steer our course
