NIKA EPO

Written by: OPEMIPO AKINSOYINU

Every scene leads to nought
Fazes out at the very sight of you
For how long would I shield you?
Oxygen

A river gathering no moss
What we share, tranquil peace
Far beyond human comprehension
I’m lost without you
 
Weakness down to the limbs
Numbness in the marrow
Voice in gasps, rustled, grounded
Rooted to a spot

Fluttering heart, usurp thoughts
Me in your guard to guide
Anywhere you lead I follow
Do I’ve a say?

Lounging, awaiting you pass-by
My reverie, shaped, sharper
The look in your eyes
Fazes out scintilla doubts

Exclusively yours I’m to do as you please
Toss to and fro as your halo leads
My halo, my guide, my guard
I’m yours…
