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!

BEFORE THE HARD CLAPPING (For those that died of coronavirus)

Cleavages of the earth

Open to take my salty tears,

Far from within; 

And deep, in the shackles of hopelessness

My heart is bridled with pain

In the ravelling clutch of plague

I carry ocean my sweat 

Eyes of the unseen survey

Curse history incomplete without me

The virology of virulent waves

Laying man and mankind a waste

Before this great dread of mischief

I cry time to suffer cure

And bury this fit of fear

With unwholesome slur

Before the hard clapping

I plead the thunders of hallelujah

To rain mercy

And re-elude our joy!

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
