Poetry Play #5


Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Kawthar Babatunde



Look deep into my eyes

Look beyond my skin, the hue of humus

And tell me what you see

Let my pupils make you a prophet

A prophet of petals


To love a poet they say is madness

Your pupils are but a reflection of myself

Why then must I at them stare?

Is the unknown hidden beneath?


A poet is a union of things known and unknown

I have known you too often that my eyeballs have metamorphosed

Into an image of you


The words you speak are sugary and infested

If like butterfly your metamorphosis really is

My image then must appear in all you sight


So come, stay with me

And let’s enjoy this vision of us

Verbalizing the veracity of pending passion

NB: Poetry Play is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
