Call it alliteration or pun,
It is more than that ;
I write about my beloved sparrow that  nests
on mountains and tree tops 
 just like the eagles of the north ;
Oh,sparrow! ,your arrow penetrates my narrow heart
deeply to make it shallow,	
sending sparks through my body .

Call it alliteration or rhyme it is more than that ,
Sensation and blood compete for a race
through my veins and arteries ,
When I set eyes on you,
Air gushes into my lungs like a flowing stream,
 As you open your mouth to speak ;
Your white enamel teeth shine more than the morning sun;
The synchronized movement of your body
sends signals to the synapse of my spine,
Which reverberates emotions to the hypothalamus of my brain,
How can I cope with this ?

My sorrow fades ,my pains vanish 
When I got touched by you ;
Oh ,sparrow! Oh, dear!! How dare you 
Incapacitate or incarcerate my thought ?
Thought of not falling in love with any damsel ;
not being fooled again ;
The padlock of three years unlocked in seconds ,
Which makes me sing songs of songs to Utopian lady ,
You faith strengthened me and your courage boost  my ego;
I will continue to nod to your
Lyrics and dance to your music .

Call it alliteration or pun ,
You are not far from wonder land ,
Sweet sparrow sent to shake-off and shame sorrow ,
My unfailing love ,I unfold and unleash unto you….

*A valentine poem dedicated to all lovers….

    what a play on words, olusegun. My favorite lines: "Sensation and blood compete for a race / through my veins and arteries ," Oh for those days when the touch of a lovers' hand would remove the pain. Congrats on your win.

    wow, you really went with that form of dramatic monologue, Olusegun. I bet you were one of the few to do it, and you captured the effect that this form needs to make! Congrats for your win.
