www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Happy Birthday, My Captive]
Dear Captive,

Heavens beckon,
A Gem released to the earth,
Kept in dark lovely skin,

She walks with gait,
Like an Amazon
Taking hostages
Of her admirers.

With each step,
Her candour and courage
Blast my mortal heart.
I ache,
Knowing I must have been hit by love.

Feared I may become her prisoner,
She surrendered to me!

Happy Birthday, my captive…

May God smile upon you today;
May He grant all your heart’s good wishes;
May He guide & guard our ship to divine fulfillment.
I care, as ever!

Signed: Your Captor

  1. Alfred Williams – Nigeria – I am a freelance writer; I work autonomously and remotely, on a commission-led basis, for companies and individuals. My core specialties include (copy)writing, proofreading and editing, and general content creation. Other projects which I work on vary from regular appointments, such as contributing editorial articles to magazines, to ad-hoc commission, such as writing a biography. I have worked for Ox-harris Creative and Plug Media. At present, I work as an IELTS|TOEFL|ACT|SAT|GMAT|GRE Verbal Coach and F-1 Visa Counsellor at Light Heights Global Services, as a web content writer for Net Social Limited (owners of storried.com) and I have been working freelance as an Academic Research Consultant, web content writer|strategist, public speaker, and copywriter/editor for WAE Solutions. My drive (and desire ) is to deliver results, along with exceptional quality service. I'm a proud bibliophile because it gives me uncommon knowledge--I know the part of the brain where habits are stored is called "basal ganglia". And, Yes!, I love the sheer magic of well-wrought urns (excellent literature)!
