Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

I DIED YESTERDAY

I died yesterday

The rosy sky was blue

Yet no path helds sway

Hope dangled with no clue

 

I died yesterday

Under the weight of humiliation

Following your arrival in May

The birth of recession

 

I died yesterday

Before your very eyes

Ranchers made slay

And you say all are but lies

 

I died yesterday

Yes I died, to deluding promises

Buried to decay

With empty eulogies

 

I died to give change a new name

The very holiness you portray

A lopsided nepotic charade you became

Integrity I never knew could betray

 

I died, I died

Yet you appointed me a deadman

Charred and dried

Indeed, you need a scan

 

I died yesterday

I died for sinners outside your clique

Hunted in utter dismay

In your reawakened rise to the peak

 

I died in the open monastery

The zenith of religious intolerance

The height of unguided mystery 

Egregiously watching us in glance!

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,
Val' as it is,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
