Tell Me~by Benedixio Moore Khoti



 Tell Me

Image may contain: 1 person, hat and outdoor

As I slip through my sleep
must I care to consult the gods
once I drift into the mysteries
of my many dreams?

Must I ask the goddess of splendor
and beauty
if at all she kissed you with such glamour
that you posses?

Tell me clearly,
Who begot such beauty that you wear?
Whom shall I beg, Is it Freya
Or Aphrodite?

Baby boo
what am I to do?

Must I set my body ablaze
into wild flames to burn
if I have to face the eyes of the sun
and gun down a spurn of answers from its shrine
Should I put on mighty lightening
as my garment
to kiss the feet of the brightest star at midnight,

At noon
should I defy Nature?
must I be gone to the galaxy of moon
just to hear her whisper
wispy truths about you from a whisker.

Tell me, did you kill to steal
such wild beauty you possess?

I remember ma princess
it is the same madness
of this beauty you possess
that made me stumble and tumble
in that nick of time
when you swept me of my feet
and rushed my tongue
in proposing you be mine.

Note: one of the many pieces from my archives
