  • poem : Gone with the war by Francis Oboh

    Title 'Gone with the war'
    About poem:
    i wrote this poem
    With a thought
    About women in the past
    How they lost their love one
    Why?
    Because of war
    But i stated only a woman
    She is talking to her late husband
    And to us
    Made her the main character read and understand the poem


    .During a period of war 


    We experienced passionate feelings  


    Our affection developed 


    Despite the fact that I see you 


    As the world sees summer 


    That I might contrast you with 


    You held my waist


    We made love 


    I was dependent on you 


    I bore a blessed child


    Whom we called francis 


    What does it mean ? 


    freedom


    All we needed was for the world to be free 


    Free from war 


    Which would finally shred us 


    The clock ticked quicker 


    Similarly as time for war draws 


    You needed to clear out 


    You went to safeguard your nation 


    My nation 


    Our nation 


    Yet, I was left with no resistance 


    A long time passed 


    I needed you 


    I missed your touch 


    I missed hw u kissed me 


    How u held my bosoms 


    How you made love to me 


    I pondered where you would be 


    I supplicated throughout the night 


    For our favored God to direct you 


    Secure you 


    At last I heard clamors 


    Ladies cheering 


    I ran out 


    Quickly 


    Saw them holding their friends and families


    Everybody cheering 'THEY ARE BACK!' 


    I searched for you


    Couldn't discover you 


    You guaranteed you would come 


    Ohhh no! 


    Demise why him? 


    I sobbed, I felt helpless 


    I was comforted 


    I was held 


    I was given cash


    They said it was for your administrations 


    Be that as it may, despite everything I pondered 


    Where are you? 


    For what reason did you allow me to sit unbothered in this brutal world? 


    Would i be able to live without you? 


    That I needed to learn
