Love Is You? - Poem by Jude Ogunade
My sleep refused to come!
Your memories woke up my mind.
I stayed still on the bed,
I stayed still like a little pet.
I walked the distance of our stroll,
My mind clutch tightly to last night
Last night thoughts refused to go,
And the anxiety is mine to keep.
Like two little brats,
We played pranks.
And like Adam and Eve,
We stayed still.
The cold clutch to me tightly
At each thought of you.
And took my mind to that night,
That night that was clear.
Clear and bright like daylight.
Showering me with rays of love,
And the stars that we watched shot,
Lured me to sleep soundly each night.
Those kisses were eel’s body,
Touches so soft on me!
Those touches, so soft to feel;
Easing my emotions a great deal.
With you I am sure to rise!
To rise from death to life
To rise from lies to truth
To rise from dark to light
And I become all love’s resurrection!
Your love has made a parlour,
Of my mind with great splendour,
And she sits comfortably;
Dancing to the tune of my heartbeat.
If to be loved is to be fooled
Then am I one too soon?
And with her water be filled,
As I drown in great boom.
And as the boom bursts,
Will I also burst into wits
And with waters of wisdom,
Be drenched from heard to toes.
Love finds me fit for love!
