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!

LOVE ME LIKE A RIVER

I return you the protection of my most ungrudging love
I am a fair flower; a lake on a plain
Be careful how you drive me crazy
I am witless; a harmless fool
Mad in patches; full of lucid intervals

The sea roars; the horrid river flows
Yet my love is unflinching
It is the piercing point
That pours no rage
An archangel of negritude
I'm a ghetto exponent

Human's may lurk hate in love
But divine love that doesn't change
Is the very nature of my soul

So love me also like a boundless river
With the climax that deafens heroes
Let that love subdue me
Yes me, an obstinate creature
A polyphony of rarity
A tiny- little span

Let your love be my luckiest thing
On whose verge, my humanity shall die
Consumed in a broken monody
Of death's very content
With webbed tensions; no fear
My nights lean to you
Lackluster man's life 
Spent in a whirling pool of spite

So come away woman; hurry
We must catch up with tall angels
Angels with freezing ribs to attend us!

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,

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..
