Beloved By Adeyeye James Oluwatobi


This moment abducts me into our memories

I see your face in the blue moon
& I remember the colour of your kisses
I know love is a city in your heart
& beauty a room in your body

I know melody is a coven in your throat where birds with beautiful voices sing
& comfort a river on your tongue
Where souls course undisrupted
& that’s is why I worship you in every Art
In every wonder that comes with the days
Like when the stars glitter, I remember your golden face
When fireflies fly , I remember your elegance
The way you Ray hope through the windows of your smile
& For every silence that arrives on the wings of solitude
I wallow in your absence –
This is because you burn in me like fire
& leave me wandering in the flames of your glow.
