'My Kiss'

My kiss; your alcohol
you could get high on it
Teasing as it's given
like in spoonfills
Feeding; bloom your lips like it's leavened
redder than roses
ruddier than pinched cheeks
My kiss; dole your lips,

My kiss; smoother than a full hiss
filling like sweet pee
held for too long,
then released
Gentle, bittersweet like a love-song
here and there, everywhere

My echo
make the rest of you, 'Jell-O'
My kiss; your heroin,
you might get 'used' to/by it
in using it, it's using you
Sweeter, saltier...tastier than punch
Lift you high enough to fly
with angels above

My kiss...bewitch
an itch, you feel
as my lips, they inch
On, in you
my kiss will live...
My kiss; your weed
it still, will fill, your need.

Damages..hmm..let me give an anecdote to illustrate what 'damages' means in this context. Okay, here goes.. Boy meets Girl. Boy likes Girl and Girl vice versa. Boy has a previous engagement i.e fiancee/girlfriend e.t.c likewise Girl. Nevertheless, Boy asks Girl out and She says yes. Boy and Girl start dating with every other thing that comes with the dating package with emphasis (in quote; incase your eyes miss it) on the 'loving' aspect (the part carried out in secret places). They start having 'happily ever-afters' but did you guess? (Okay, i know..most Nollywood movies have this same plot!) Yeah, they soon fall out of 'love'..why? So many reasons..lets start with the masculine reasons first. One, Boy gets tired of 'loving' the same girl everytime. Two, He wants to move on (start 'loving' other girls) while still keeping Girl.. Three, Boy thinks..since Boy and Girl are already 'loving' one other girl and boy elsewhere, why not introduce more players..expand the playing field? Finally, Boy feels trapped/choked.
Now for the feminine reasons.. One, Girl didn't give her 'all' to initial boy like present Boy (Note that 'all' means body, mind, soul, money..with emphasis on body because that can't be retrieved!). Two, Girl has slaved (cooked, washed, spent and endured beatings too!) for Boy. Three, Girl can't stand the humiliation of being the second girl (demotion) since everyone in the vicinity already associates her with Boy. Four, Boy is the most accessible avenue for Girl to get daily 'loving!'.
Irreconciliable interests therefore results in an impasse..Boy says it's over, Girl says never. Boy tries to get other girls, Girl blocks him off. Boy seeks compromise, and Girl tells him he 'must' pay..yeah, here it comes 'Damages!'
And i'm not fibbing..this is not some Nollywood really happened (is happening..). Though an amusing story/incident..i seriously want to learn from i'd like you to tell me what you think about paying for..'Damages'

Hollow cries the belly
'nough bread to buy, no penny
waxing tunes in penury
Foundation Al-manjeri

Potruding heads and tummy
not good health; anomaly
home for lice and scabies
above, halo-like, angelic

It's we who shake weary heads and worry
They'll continue to live like fairies
gathering scraps, roots and berries
the rest they keep in bellies

It's a world like Peter Pan's; never-ending
what you get in the pan is yours, no lending
keep to the costume; be heart-rending
easily will you everyday get your happy-ending.
