Poetry Play #7


Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Walter Zion



Come, let me wrap you in words

Let me mould you from the dust of dreams


And your fears will all tremble at the sound of my hugs


                Come, let me fill you with symphonies

And teach you how to waltz


                And the emptiness that you perceive will all park in bags


I will make you ephemeral

And give you wings to walk the streets of the sky


                And not even the sparrows will contend the glory

And the wonders of your flaps


For you shall walk with angels

And sing that sweet song of freedom


                And sweet smelling savour shall always be the knocks at your door


                And when you look into the mirror

The sun of your smile will rise

Glowing into the glass


That the radiation of your eyes may quicken the openings of the glass


And you will see yourself the way you truly are

A success story, a winning warrior, a superstar



NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, 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, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
