LOVE AND THE SHRED OF NOTHINGNESS BY OLUCHI EKELEME

Oluchi Ekeleme

Wait my love
It’s me
Your favourite ‘she’ calling
The one whose sight your heart leap for
Have you forgotten how I touched your soul?
And didn’t stay with you in your darkness
But became the light to erase your darkness
And in the ocean
When we were drowning
We became each others strength
Hand in hand
We fought the waves
The ocean pleased with the ‘US’ we created
Amidst the storm we faced
Became a strength to you
To me
We found breathe
The breathe to further make love proud of us
And how love found a home in us
Love called us home
The memories of a broken heart
The heart cut into shreds of nothingness
Bleeding emptiness
From the one who once knew happiness
We were supposed to find each other
In our next world
And now the present that is upon us crumbles
How can I be born again to find you?
When finding you had birth losing you
I’m right here
Waiting…
For you to never come back
Cos now I’m gone
Never to be found by you
Again…
