In Heat - Poem by Akua Achampong
A thick gauze surrounds me now, it hums with me.
Its so suffocating i can hardly breathe.
it slides up my top and caresses my chest,
it plays on my skin and soaks my vest.
glides against my stomach, it tickles the hairs.
but it sticks and clings to me without a care.
Its teasing me, playing with me, making me suffer.
Taunting and teasing, making me tougher.
So frustrating, the heat is so stern.
Please just a bit hotter so i can burn.
Raising my pulse and making my blood boil,
Take me out of this heat, i'm starting to spoil
Leaving me free from frustration and with no power.
And in desperate need of a cold shower.
