Poetry Play #55

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Zeynab



I carry your heart in my hands like a China cup

That must not kiss the ground

And from it I taste the sweet tea of love every morning


I wake up to those hazel eyes every morning

And never want to go to sleep again


But even as I close my eyes

I still see you with me

Holding hands, laughing on a street somewhere in my dreams


The ecstasy of your hands intertwined with mine sends sweet shivers


You don’t know how often I pray to Allah

To use his mighty hands to cover the face of the sun

So that we can always spend time together on this bed

That smells of the fragrance of our love


Hoping that our days would be filled

With so much laughter and be as amazingly awesome as you…

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

About PenAStory

PenAStory is a group of young individuals with a passion for literature who have decided to come together to write under one platform. We seek to educate, inform as well as entertain our readers. Also, because we are targeting young literature lovers, we would like to touch on other interests of their lives hence the relationship category and because we all need a bit of motivation in our lives, we decided inspiration won't be so bad
