  • The Price

    The Price

    No more wordsCan be spoken.Power changed handsWhen MammonMoved from one to anotherAnd virtue’s roaringWas silencedWhile greed quietlyPrevailed as conscienceWas put to sleep.Tears arrive lateAs the long arms ofOf WickednessWreak untold havoc.The lambs can now be slainIn quietness:The price has been paid Toyin Taiwo, August 2020

  • A Crisis of Love

    A Crisis of Love

    Totally drained is how I feel:When your words ride over mineAnd our thoughts do not alignWhen your voice drowns under mineAnd our voices become hoarseFrom screaming silent expletivesIn vain: we became deaf to each other.

  • Unrequited Love

    Unrequited Love

    What do you do when the one you love, loves another? Do you plead for love, or quietly nurse your pain? Do you wait in hope, or just simply walk away? Do you silently pray and wish the ache would just abate? Or do you gather with friends and drink your sorrow away? Even though […]
