A SONG OF DESPAIR by Efe Ogufere

Echo remains where…

Hearts used to beat
Laughter filled the air
Songs had wings
Skies had rainbows
Rivers held fish
Mountains stood proud
Trees danced a tune
Winds blew the flute
Dawn stayed too long
Dusk was a myth
Kisses held fire
Eyes mirrored desire
Dreamers found sleep
Wayfarers had maps
Bosom was full
Lips tasted like dew
Deserts had oasis
Oldies told stories
Fairy tales held truth
Tyrants were just babies
Lives held meaning
Echo remains where,
Love was true
I had you.

    So much said with few lines; that’s why poetry is lovable. Well done Efe
