Poetry Play #41

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Llushes




I wrote another song for him tonight

And I cried as I wrote


Sad symphonies fell out of me

The stars stared at my scars


Those scars from whence all my pain exited

Flowed out as streams of endless agony


Every scar is a song about a sad story

See, these scars are the bleeding stars of my brown sky


And in my heart alone do I know this

In my heart alone do I truly exist


Too many times, I have been blurred

Broken into pieces and made invisible


All I can for now is hope you notice my existence

And save me from myself


            Save me from this blight of blur

            Save me from bursting into broken blues


Let me enlighten you baby

My eyes see only you

My heart hears only your voice


Your voice punctuates the air

I see your face in every face


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: 7baa55ae
