Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Celeste



I built the stars before our very eyes

You said nothing

I wished you noticed

So I built the sun

You did not notice


You don’t build a sun and hide it under your pillow

How can I see the stars you have hidden in the crevices of your dreams?

I can only see what you want me to see


The sun I cannot hide

The sun shone and the air whispered your name

You still did not notice

When the darkness covered much heart and I walked quietly

You never noticed


Maybe your sun is the son of illusion

Maybe the wind is your mind speaking

You left without pouring out your heart

Thinking I should I read the handwriting on the wall

But you forgot that my name isn’t Daniel

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
