Poetry Play #31

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Keenah-kay Chekwas



            My heart is grieving from within

            A pain so deep it’s overwhelming


            Last night, he picked my heart

            And nailed it on the cross of Calvary


            I watched it bleed at his feet

            Powerless to stop the flow


            My eyes bled like my heart

            Then a weakness wrecked me


            I looked for something to hold as I fell to the ground

            In a pool of heart’s blood


            And gradually I drowned praying for oxygen to breathe again


            In the abyss of myself

            I saw the reflection of a heart once held by love


            I have known how to love

            Now I only know how to hate


            I have been hurt countless times

            And cried many a river


            Now I will cry no more

            You will never find the hue of hurt in my eyes again


            Deep down inside

            I’ll fight a lot of battles to keep up my façade.



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
