Why I Fail In English

Ten minutes past time she enters,
She's too beautiful to be a teacher,
Her favorite short skirt exposes her thick thighs,
Lips red and pouting, she's a killer,
Right away my concentration flees,
Her and me far away at planet Jupiter,
With a bungalow and two exuberant kids,
I just wedded my teacher at Jupiter,
And it's Only within fifteen minutes,
Don't worry,Maybe we'll fix and visit earth later,
Bell rings,and she ends,
Only to notice,I didn't even open my locker,
Am back to Earth,not with her,but with several boys.

Dad is drunk again

   He clamors from a distance
   He then enters,rolling popping eyes,lips saggy,
   He trys to get support  from  the feeble pillar sile,
   He misses it,falls with a thud on mama's sufurias

  His breath is full of whisky,
  His new pants are already tattered,
  His eyes are berry red with fury,volatile
  His arms have some blood clots,mama wipes

  There is silence in the hut,
  There will be no supper today
  There will be no sleep to dawn today,
  There will be tear shed,may be blood shed,

  He gains some strength,
  He stands,with the support of my feeble shoulder,
  He turns around,staggering,thumbs his chest,he clamors
  He punches mama,my eyes are misty with tears,she's innocent

  Mama is flat on the ground,
  Mama's nose is bleeding,he doesn't notice,
  Mama pushes him over,he lands on a piece of ugali,
  Mama wipes my tears,a hefty punch lands on my back,
  
  I abruptly wake from denser mastress,
  I turn around,am in a hospital bed,aching
  I see mama lying besides me,he is poignant
  I see him,massage over mama's bruised body,

  All is fine today
  All hospital bills settled,with debts
  All mama's bruises are healing so quick,
  All is fine today,he's not home now,he'll come soon,

  He  appears from the horizon,he clamors
  He then enters,rolling popping eyes,lips saggy
  He trys to get support  from  the feeble pillar sile,
  He misses it,falls with a thud on mama's sufurias...

Desperate Love

Every dawn starts an extreme desire
A desire to have her by my side,
May be cuddle her,not even kissing
That alone can quench my thirst for her
I know she doesn't love me
She has proven it severally
But my heart won't listen
It's firm and stubborn for her.
It lures me to calling her at night
To disappointments,no answer
Just like she didn't answer last night
'May be she's doing the dishes'
My heart would murmur to me
But frankly its much late for dishes
'Then may be she's out  to pee'
It'd respond quickly.
She snubs me, deliberately
I've seen her go out with Ivan
And yeah,I confirmed they kissed at the party
My best poem ever,I wrote to her last summer,
I found it in the  dustbin, ramshackled
She's called me a fool,idiot,gobshite
Moron...let me conceal the rest
But my foolish heart won't listen
It's firm and stubborn for her
It's called desperate love,
May be you're a victim
But your heart just murmured
'Of course you're not'
Just to blindfold you.
What can I do?

You won't die

Don't die, simply because I won't let you,
Each time you close your eyes,
I will wake them up again,you won't leave me,
And when you stop breathing,
I'll blow into your lungs,
There's nowhere you're going,
No not today,not this early
I'm not ready to have teary nostalgias,
Of the fun days,joyous moments of our past,
So this life will not end today,not even tomorrow,
Those eyes won't close forever today,
I will wake them up because I'm by your side,
I'm sorry if you could be in a hurry,
Forgive me but I have to,
Afterall,one day you'll be there, but not this early,
I know you won't hate me for this,or will you?
And What's the hurry for precisely today?
would you consider me first?My loneliness?
Or do you have one better than me ahead?
I know you can't be that much bad,
So let's hang around a little,
Let me take you out for one last adventure,
Can't you see that we're completely not done yet?
Don't let me cry for so long, respond a little,
Yes your doctor said you can't make it,
But that doesn't mean he's right as he thinks
You know he's an idiot,you know him well,
come on and let's prove him wrong,
Just keep those eyes open,it's just that easy,
He won't believe it,but who cares that?
Let him think you're a zombie,and run out for help
Isn't that funny to you? I thought you'd tickle,
A promise to you,when we get back home,
Dad is gonna take down a goat for you tomorrow,
Did you listen to my phenomenal promise?
I Know you're pretending you didn't,I know you well,
Please don't die this soon my puppy,
I know you won't miss dad's goat, neither can I,
Or miss out and I'll eat it with  Danto and Rex,
Let me see you salivate,like you always do,
Let me see the dance of your tail,
But even if you choose to die,You won't,
So don't even waste your little energy for that,
Because you're at my arms, don't think of it,
I'll wake those eyes,blow into those lungs,
You won't die my puppy,Browny.

In love suspense

All of a sudden ,I can't stop thinking about you,
You're becoming an essence to my existence
Out of this feeling,there is no breakthrough,
It's so intense in me,with great suspense.

Trying to recall how all this drama started,
You,in absentia was introduced to me,by your lover
Your name was stunning as he mentioned
And then swore to love you forever

Some years moved forth and we met,
Coincidentally at the same university,
The much you loved your guy made our first chat
We then met frequently and there was propensity

I can't forget that first night we cuddled at chill,
We danced together,and there was a feeling of love,
You were so romantic even at a standstill
But the night after hardly entailed love

I hardly know what lies in your heart
If I should fall in love or stop the nonsense
If there's any feeling that I behove or not
If cuddling,caressing and kissing you will be an offense

Her Alien Beauty

Your eyes will pick her from a crowd of ladies,
Her hair,a flyaway,very thin and soft as silk,
Her gaze sharp,and eyelids as if lined with shards of glass,
Below,a dainty nose with dazzling Pandora jewels
That extends to her sea-nymph ears
Her beaming smile,makes the world a better place,
Teeth white white as lime under her pouting lips
Her wasp waisted body picks well with her thick thighs
Your eyes will pick her from a crowd of ladies
She'll make a three-year old experience early adolescence,
