FWGE: Three Poems by Balogun David Tolulope

The little slice of insanity

I wish to spill my thoughts on the papyrus of your heart
And to Crest my love on the skin of your emotions
I want you to be the dream I will never wake up from
And the only rain that will ever kiss my soil

I wish to dive into the pool of your love
That I may be drown in your deepest emotions
I want you to crush me with the rock of your sympathy
And from your fountain of desires I wish to have a drink

I wish to have my heart beating in your hands
That my fingertips and ink will poetically publish our love story
And have men praise me for my heroic love stupidity

Just like Romeo, I wish to be breathtakingly foolish enough
To die for you
Because I know love is a little slice of insanity.


Stubborn Memories 

I keep fading into the memories of yesterday
I keep feeling the movements of your shadow in my heart
As I sit here on the bench of hope that they will fade away someday
But am broken, just at the thought of you

I keep trumping through the forest of memories
I keep staring at the empty chair in my heart
As I sit here, watching your images play on my mind like kids on rollercoasters
But am falling far beyond time

Stubborn memories that conquer the arms of time
Grow in me like tumor.
You were the poetic lines I could not complete
You were dream I woke up from too soon
And the priceless pearl I could not keep.


Pain Kissed Hopes

I’ve always wanted to design dreams
Not to chase them like kids after butterflies in the fields
But to decorate and further furnish them.

I’ve always wanted to mend dreams
Not to be the one with the broken pieces of dreams
But to repair them with the kisses of hope.

But just like a  chameleon nature changed her wardrobe
And like the space in-between an anvil and an hammer,
I lost my needle and tools to time.

Now, when we the sun comes up
I host troubles
Even when the sun goes down
I host double of the pious troubles
Only I hope, it won’t be forever!
