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 still remember you always 

They just don't go

Your lush hair

Combed in styling waves

Dark upon you

Like twigs of the jacarady


Fairest of all; yellow melanin

As such in those days

I no longer stroll the sea shore

To pick fish from weary fishermen

Battling with tawny nets

Bar Beach is now a distance

Far off Ahmadu Bello Way

And you must pay to see the waves


We will abandon chores at 4

And dash off to Sand Field

To play 'monkey post'

With the lads from Apese

You were a game delight

With devoirs as you tuss the ball

Our team scammpered

The moment you demise


I never visited VISS again

Since I left her once for good

But I hear she is doing fine

And our friends at school

Have turned men with might


You will be throwing broken javelin

To hull down stubborn almond fruits

As we stroll home on school ways

About peers, we were a pair

Loafty childhood days


But We shall meet again

Reuben Ugochukwu Peter

We shall meet

At the large gathering of stars

The rainbow shall bestride us

Until then, GOODNIGHT!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

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,
Val' I engage.

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..
