EKENE by Okwori

Ekene, you are music to
my ears, you are not like
the drums and trumpets
but like the sweet sound
of the piano and violin.
Ekene I thought my heart
was already hard and ice
cold, but you are the fire
that melts the ice. You are
the dream not the nightmare, you
do not bring colours into my
world, you are colours in my
dim darkened world. Amongst
roses, daisies and lilies, you
stand tall like the iroko, beautiful
as the blooming rose. The peacock
goes to hide her face when
she sees yours. Ekene, the gentle
sweet sound of your voice is
not tumultuous, it is ever peaceful
and my ears dance to it beats.
You are like the stars and the
moon, you brighten my darkest
hour. The world they say has
gone ice cold, but you are the
warmness that shields me from
its ravaging harshness. Can we
dance beneath the dancing trees
and enjoy the sweet breeze tonight, so
the cackles of our laughter will be
heard by all? I love you Ekene, not
like good and tomorrow but like
forever and unconditional.

Love series.
