Poetry Play #28

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Korn



                With ears to see and eyes to listen

                I’m vaguely blind and unconventionally deaf


                I see things unseen

                And hear things unheard

                I’m a metaphysical man


                Metaphysical beyond this realm

                In a realm unseen to the human eyes


                I walk in realms

                I sit and commune in the gathering of ghosts


                Old ghosts, new regrets

                Leaving me with a ghost of a smile as I continue to walk this lonely part


                The past hunts me like wolves

                I watch my sanity wither daily


                Now I’m slightly mad, slightly dead

                Dead to the world so cold


                I fear moons

                For its arrows of shadows that stalk me


                Piercing me, slightly piercing me

                Going deeper

                Piercing deeper till my soul bleeds blood black

                And my tears fall red deep


                I cry into the arms of my bed

                Into eerie night of sleeplessness


                Thrust into a world of oblivion

                Is my sanity intact?


                “stop them! Stop them!”

                My screaming swallows the night

                I know I am out of my mind


                Out of mind, out of sight

                I am now a shadow of my shallow self

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
