CLOSE RANGE

Written by: k k iloduba jnr

As close as autumn is to mountain-side,
as close as cold is to snow,
as cold as sun is to summer,

as close as storm is to clouds,
as close as thunder is to lightening,
as close as rivers are to sea,
as close as roses are to thorns,
as close as stars are to skies,
as close as moon is to gazes,
as close as evening wind is to whispers,
as close as nightingale is to shadows,

as close as bangles are to wrists,
as close as veils are  to maidens,
as close as tits are to silken drapes,


as close as pinings are to naked eyes,
as close as trembling is to touches,
as close as moanings are to thrashing limbs;
........be that close to me.
