By Ekpunobi Paulinus
Let my words soak in my emotion
And my thoughts be stained with the purity of love
My emotion quakes and my heart pounds
Like a dam, language blocks my feelings
But shall I depend only on the words of my mouth?
Can’t my behaviour carry the message of my heart?
Lo! It is so easy to say “I love you”
But hardest act is transmitting it
When I saw you under that apple tree, so lonely
Your eyes, I saw in them, fallen stars
They found no place suitable to settle
Than that which is heaven-like
The voice of your mouth soothes
Able to call back a dying man from underworld
Like the perfect figure of eight
Your body is perfectly structured
You have melted my stony heart
My heart pumps not blood again but emotions
My pen suffers haemorrhage
I relent no longer lest it flows away
