By Eddy Ongili
There must be a way to feel
To turn off logic
To derail thoughts in shapes
And fume upon the irrationality
of the heart
To love by all motions
of papers and skin
Between the flows of a violin
Closer to the ink of symphony
Without any bullshit.
To fight on a field of ghostly flowers
Only blown apart by an orchestra
or stormy requition
To find the mist on the skin of the sun
To fall in weight of subliminal waters.
The idea of language
Is to be born out of museums
For only the heart possess the
artefacts and souveniors
As broken, stitched and stolen.
Conquests are struggles
But when the plurality of love fires up
The heart rationalizes its need
In utter freedom
To subject the mind to gusts of
Memory and ache.
For sanity is a byproduct
of chance and loss.
We merely tell our desires.
