Best Osei Kofi Daniel Poems

+ Fav Poet


I am holding back-against time wishes,
Lurking at a corner, as I forbid the slayer to find me
My heart beats and screech like a choking-engine,
Whilst the snarly sinister hunts - wishes me burnt to ashes
I dare thought to be a bee - 
So tiny I could fly and disappear from the scene.
But so lame a thought like that can help a soul.
The frightening night wants me feed to the ghoul.
Hidden – I have stayed long, linger I can no more.
I’m all alone in the dark, bruised and with a leg sore.
Escaping is impossible!

    Bruised and with a leg sore? Work on such rhymes, remember, not every rhyme is a good one. A video game can be motivation for poetry, I like that, keep that up.
