Shotgun Of Passion - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

Hunched, I stared at the dark faced moon, gripping my chest
fury bubbled and throbbed beneath my breastbone braced for combat
slivers of light cascaded over me, bathing me in complete obscurity
drawing and fetching my mind free of me
I saw it seep into the ground, my senses on leave

Teeth bared I moved to strike you
but embraced you instead, drugged by your being
entranced, I heralded my cue to draw one more breath
but dawn crashed into me
and the moon faded into obscurity
my soul a scarlet red thread in hot pursuit
pleased at the prospect of eternal bondage
