Seduced - Poem by macaulay akinbami

Once and never again
This heart in bond
Affectioned to the worship
Of a damsel.
Buried on the path of fools,
And to many of their ways,
Called love.

Once and never again
This sanity entrapped
Of a weaker captor
Mighty in spirits
That all men must choose
Amongst the myriads

Once and never again
To this evil all my gain
In a heap, for vanities
Of little minds.
Though in needs, hers supplied
Four the four.

Once and never again
I walked deep into her grave
And poured heaven’s river
In depths never full
Bouncing breath nearer hell.

Once and never again
Into woes eternal.
