Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Del Butterfly
Every night, I pray
I pray to be able to pluck you from the tree of my dreams
Into the reality of my world
Every morn, I wish to wake into your stare
I pray to inhale your salty breath into my very soul
In your embrace,
Lies my healing
But maybe there are some prayers God doesn’t answered
Or maybe the Angels will be too jealous
Of the kind of love story our lives will make
But I cannot stop hungering for you in my hands
Sharing the warmth of the love in our hearts
Or just maybe, they only need us to try?
My hunger fills this atmosphere like a drunken palm wine tapper.
Your warmth merges into mine
Do you know that my skin still smells of your perfume
Because of the constant hug we used to have?
Do you know that I wake up every day with your name on my lips
Like overnight lipstick?
Sometimes I wonder if you miss me the way I miss you…
Ooh! How I miss those hugs that filled my emptiness…
How can I forget?
I crave for your kisses
Come caress your lover
I miss you, more than I ever say!
I know we shall meet again beyond the borders of letters
Letters that are too fragile to carry the weight of our emotions
And when we meet again
I will fully pour myself into you in kisses, fondles and foreplay
We will express and experience those emotions
That love letters are too weak to carry
And gladden shall my heart be
Dear lover, whilst wade no more…
Fondle back into my embrace in rush!
This spirit awaits your loving
In your touch shall I come alive!
Words can’t weigh our love experience
This journey I refuse to see the end!
Just so long we keep together, to go on.
I’m Alive! Yes!
And on, we will go
A love story with no end
Just you and me – a portrayal of passion
Making love stories on a bed littered with roses
And the several love letters we have written
In grey hairs I would stand to kiss you externally
Till I rest on your waiting shoulder, sleeping on!
Need I forget to say soul-mate, I didn’t forget,
I love you till the next world to come.
Just you! Goodnight, sweet love.
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
