HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY CAPTIVE!

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

Today,
Heavens beckon,
A Gem released to the earth,
Kept in dark lovely skin,
Gap-toothed.

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
Opekeny
Thanks

  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)!
