TWIN FLAME

Seasons passing by
You are still my twin flame
It has been a couple of years
And you still scream my name

When you find yourself in danger
You run back to me with no hesitation
I know you are my twinkling star
And you keep lightening my candle

We broke up and fell in love apart
He bruised and crushed your heart
You know I am the one to make it whole
Can’t be together yet, you are my soul

You think of me and I do the same
Ex-lovers and we have no shame
You are still my favorite recipe
And I am your peace and melody

We broke up and fell in love apart
He bruised and crushed your heart
You know I am the one to make it whole
Can’t be together yet, you are my soul

Brought you a coffee now you are coughing
Walking towards me looking exhausted
Confessing my kind of love is intoxicating
Don’t waste time, let’s get started

Seasons passing by
You are still my twin flame
It has been a couple of years
And you still scream my name

When you find yourself in danger
You run back to me with no hesitation
I know you are my twinkling star
And you keep lightening my candle

Order anything you want with my card
Double the list, don’t mind the price tag
Come let’s go for a ride side by side
Invite your friends and your haters too

Seasons passing by
You are still my twin flame
It has been a couple of years
And you still scream my name

When you find yourself in danger
You run back to me with no hesitation
I know you are my twinkling star
And you keep lightening my candle

 

MY DEAR DAUGHTER 3

Please do not take forever to come to me
I have been waiting and I am waiting
I am waiting for you to bring me reasons to smile
I am waiting a century each hour
I am waiting as if I’ve found your mother

It’s late and I am out here counting the stars
I look deep and deeper into the clouds
Wondering where you are right now
What you are doing and what you took for dinner
I am wondering if you are this calm breeze
Singing through the voice of the trees and birds
I am wondering, just wondering where you are

I care so much about you my girl
Even now you are not yet conceived
I care because I know who you represent to me
So don’t take forever to come give me a hug
For I have been missing you since twenty sixteen
I am dying to hold those hands like I once did

I sing you songs and I write you poems
Living every minute of my day with greater care
Daddy doesn’t want to take a wrong step anymore
Daddy wants you to be so so proud of him to the core
So I pray a thousand times before I make a decision

I said I FIGHT FOR YOU and I still and will always do
All these jewelries and diamonds I buy for you
You are Royal so I invest every penny for you
All these love and blessings I shower on you
Yes, Daddy wants to give you the world before birth
Daddy wants to write you a book before you learn to read
And sing you melodious rhythms before you learn to dance

I stand before the stream and scream your name
I am your greatest fan before your fame
And I know you will be the greatest I can dream
For Daddy is and wants to remain proud of you
You are my Goddess, my Miracle and Monarch
You are the sunset upon the hills and valleys

Kisses on your head and flowers on your bed
Tomorrow I would be shopping for you
I will buy you toys and the prettiest thing I would see
I know what you love so you will have the best
For Daddy wants nothing less for his Princess.

 

DEAR FAIRYTALE GODDESS

(Dedicated to Ekpe Idemili)

You just can’t escape the cage of my thoughts
So I will write you a thousand love poems
And I will sing your name in every tune
As long as you remain the melody
And the sweet harmony of my soul

Real girls are fake like world politics
They mess up my mental until I’m sick
They long corrupted the word love
And boyfriend is now an enterprise
As if that is not enough my Sweetest Kiss
They rape our heart with false affections

You are as real to me as the grasses and hills
And with the wind in the quiet hour of the day
You colour my lips and sing rhythms to my ears
You are my muse, the skeleton of my verses
You are the one holding the key of the trap door
That leads me out of the blues collapsing me

It’s not news anymore how much I love thee
Strange creature; the friendliest of all
Hold tight my heart and never let it fall
For so strong a man I am with a fragile heart

I am full of emotions and my love is pure
So give me your embrace and watch me adore;
Your tail as it sparkles deep in your Atlantis
Your hairs long and scented with perfumes
Nicer than every I have ever perceived
Crystal splashes like little diamonds I see
Whenever the wave meets with your skin

Remain part of me as we have always been
Show me everything, take me with you to the deep
I can’t be scared of drowning when I am with you
You have my trust and I will never let it rust
Take me tonight as I fall asleep, I am yours to keep
But never think I run away when the cock crows

Make fun of my kind, I just don’t mind
With you I tour the universe still lying on my bed
Speak of all our ills as men and smile a while
Speak of how materialistic our females are
And how ugly their beauty looks down there

Take me with you as I forbid the land
I will follow you to everywhere you lead
I want to see it all and party underground
For I have long been blind to such great beauty
