Poetry Play #54

poetry play penastory

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Cable



Your beauty is a burning razor blade

Cutting through the papers of my mind


Your name fills my imagination

Like overpopulated citizens of a nation


You’re like the departing sun

Hues of a painter high on LSD


I wish you are an artwork

I would have placed you before my bed

So that I can wake to see your face daily


She loves me like a woman

Strong as lady

Laughs like a child

But cries like a baby

Maybe, she’s the one that’s going to save me.


Maybe her love is the cure to my loneliness

Maybe she is the woman walking out of the street of my dream

Into the reality of my life


Penrose stairs, infinite steps of your love, on fire


Love letters littering bed sheets

The room smells of the fragrance of her skin


Worship of Eros, speaking in tongues of flames


Tongues burning with passion

Burning for each other



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
