Vincent Igwilo Poems

She told me to feel her chest
I couldn't believe -
Someone's body, could be so hot
I sat beside her

No doubt, I am a science student
And a student is another word for a believer
But to convey the truth
I don`t believe all

I have fallen
From my reserved state
I fell in love
They say am seventeen

The shackles of bitterness
I can sense its stench
It fills my lungs to disgust
I wish to have autumn.


This empty hall
I find myself in
The reverberation of thoughts
seems to be everywhere

She may act all hardy
And look all principled
But touch her soft spot
And she comes crumbling

Friends always tell me of rhyme
But I think they are all chime
For they make me think long
Which I know also makes me stink

Resolutions, I pen down
To keep, a solution I need
The wrong I know
The rights are familiar with me

Being so far from men
Still thy influence felt
A thought none can comprehend
Of it's beginning nor end

I weep
I weep for you child
I weep for myself

Don't procastinate
Never leave for tomorrow
What you should do today
Don't get lazy

Open the door to your heart
Let me be the one you deserve
The one who reads your silence
The one who understands

Shades of blue
Carved around the palm tree
The cool night breeze
It makes one forget tomorrow

It swirl and swirl
Emotions, feelings and pleasures
In my excited state
The universe calls out to me

Sometimes, just sometimes
I feel confused
In times like this
I feel my world has come crashing down

Why do every thing become clear when its too late?
Some have the taste of bad fate
Time, Enough it is to change
But altogether it seems too strange,

Take me for a flight little bird
Let's soar through times and clouds
And may it not be third
But, Together forever bound.

This feeling I bottle up
Fears I feel, it could explode if I let out
Will I be burned
If I hold on, moments longer

Sunken, l lay
As the time ticked by
I savoured the solitude
As I tried to forget the past

As the day goes by
I cannot help but to reflect on my past mistakes
Having no guardian
I continually erred

The Best Poem Of Vincent Igwilo

Mama Can't Be Sick

She told me to feel her chest
I couldn't believe -
Someone's body, could be so hot
I sat beside her
I felt her pain
Or I thought I did
But mama was strong
She didn't act sick
She was strong for me,
For what I would
That's my mum
And she is my all in all
