WORRIES~by Prince Ibekwe


 

 

WORRIES

Image may contain: 1 person, closeup

jilted 365 times
tossed into a ocean
using the weapons of 
the lips and lies held up
high to the climax of the hill
and left to fall to the sand

ego bruised and lost
flogged with a whip
like rain drenching
the body, spirit
and soul

mind wandering
jittery like the banana peel
thought left in the river Nile
of boredom

used and vulnerable
she is
ragged and objectified
skin screwed and left to
wither like the leaves in
the sahara

promised love but
peopled with people
of lust and wild desires

who will emancipate
her from this massive
thought annihilation
and become her salvation?
