Sheri goes out with me…[For Fridayfictioneers]

Like a sheet upon a line    

A mass of people billows around

The virtuous and the spineless

Sat [stood] we two, one another’s best!

***This is a very sentimental poem. I wrote it as a surprise for Sheri upon our last date,  in Lagos. Looking at this picture, I felt like sharing a part of me with you all. Enjoy your weekend!

You’ve got a Mail!

I strolled across the globe

For a taste of life

And found many cuisines

Among its people

I had a taste of affluence

And its aroma of acquaintances

But my appetite got bored

I had a sip of places

And its tipsy impersonality

But my bud got soured

I had a crush of people

And their citric culture

But, this too purged me

I head back home

To the lusciousness of your memories

To the savoury Imprints of your touches

To the sumptuousness of your thoughts

To the echoes of your laughter

To ravish the last vestige of our life together

And this was satisfying beyond words

Then I found a line from you

There from a corner of the world:

With love from Manila!
