    Beautiful Valentine by Chijioke Goodness.
    My beautiful Valentine
    I want us to sail a while
    By the British isles
    I would glare into you eye
    Searching for that burning desire.
    That you claimed to have for me.
    I hope those imaginable crushing desire be.
    I hope I will be your branch if you're a tree.
    I want to be your better half
    I want to sing loves songs blowing the harp.
    I call you Valentine,you call me darling
    I hope we ain't wasting time creating our fountain
    They ever flourishes with love not lust
    Forever not perishing,
    With you I can't be lost.
    I hope your tongue is not sweet and all you said you meant it.
    Above all your songs suites me and all the events of love concrete.
    I love you dearly beautiful Valentine.
    Lips by Lucky Ebere


    A duo comes together
    To fuse in a kiss
    Drawn by desire
    Set ablaze by passion.
    Combing the depths
    Of their mouths,
    Spreading warmth
    In the cold places,
    Licking sensuously,
    And making flaws pristine.
    Eyes closed
    So the heart can see
    The lustful drive
    That sanity chases away
    Causing one to withdraw.
    Eyes slowly opening;
    Mouths now failing to speak.
    So tinges in the eyeballs
    Say all that there's to be said
    The words; I love you.
    One More Chance by Chijioke Goodness.
    I went away from you
    Because I had no clue
    Of your point of view.
    But now I feel lonely and hurt.
    I literally forgot.
    That you meant alot.
    I think I'm getting those feelings.
    They're making me feel so uneasy.
    Yet soft and gentle with cravings.
    The gentleness of your beautiful eyes
    Triggers me like I'm chilling in ice.
    The handsomeness of your imperfect face.
    Yet intriguing in an erotic phase.
    I love you more than you think.
    I hope I have a share of your heart to drink.
    I hope I get to taste the sweetness of your lips
    I hope I get wrapped up in your arms with uncontrollabe clings.
    I hope you let me in without a rethink.
    I miss the moments we shared, the brightness of your words of love
    A bliss the comments ,for you cared, the calmness of my world of fun.
    Unconditional your love was. A fool I was to have walked away.
    I thought you were false and so I left, baby I was led astray.
    When sickness came, you sat by my side chanting pet names.
    You made sure I felt no pains.
    I miss the way you carried me like a baby I wasn't.
    The hide and seek, the throwing of pillows, the pinching of butts ,your niceness had worsened.
    Oh my heart aches for you. I can't imagine myself cry for love.
    Slow thy time craves for new. An engine that renews love.
    So Incase you don't want to love again.Then the engine will help to renew.
    I love you my dear, I wish I had more to say than few.
    When you fell ill I wasn't there. I made no time for you.
    Everything I thought was to dream of my future like love was a voodoo.
    And now I'm not only lonely but ready to fall in love again but  with you.
    Only you babe. The man of my life.
    I promise you hey. I'm gonna be your wife.
    I hope you look more like our babies.
    Oh these are mere fantasies.
    But for now love me again.
    And please forgive me and forget the pains.
    I love you babe.
    Ifeoma by Lucky Ebere.


    A stroll to the streams of Ayika
    With your perfectly carved calabash
    Will be a wonder for all
    To behold; as water to quench a raging thirst.
    What's to behold oh Ifeoma?
    The beads lying in royalty
    Around the sleekness of your waist band
    Which shimmers in the mild sun's serenity.
    What's to behold oh Amazon?
    The exquisite braids of your hair
    With which you are adorned
    And which affirms your geason flair.
    If only your eyes would meet mine
    And your heart with mine entwine,
    Then we'll build real castles
    Which will house no hassles.
    For an angel is a citadel;
    One if grace and tranquility.
    If I'll be brave enough
    To stop you in your tracks and say a word,
    I'll not ask for your heart.
    I'll gladly give mine on a platter of red sand.

    Slowly by Isaac Somto

    Do you have confidence in affection?
    You've revealed to me you don't
    I understand your feeling
    Be that as it may,
    I'm slowly experiencing passionate feelings for you.
    How insane would it be able to be?
    I can't take it
    All things considered, I adore the inclination when I see you grin
    I'm slowly loosing mind.
    I see you in dreams at evenings
    Grinning timidly when I remember you
    Your dimple, your wildness, influences me to grin
    You're slowly assuming control over my fantasies.
    Told mother concerning you
    Told my siblings concerning you
    Informed bestie regarding you
    You're slowly becoming part of me.
    My Dark Angel by Isaac Somto

    Dear Dark Angel,
    I call you dark, not to portray character
    However, your lovely melanin skin,
    I call your an angel, to clarify your lovely heart
    How it sparkles, you are a holy messenger, You're mysterious
    Uncommon dark Queen sitting high on your position of royalty
    Nobody can have your spot
    Your heart is loaded with unadulterated gold
    Never to be played with
    Purchased or sold
    Your Love is Patient Your Love is benevolent
    Continually attempting to convey bliss to others notwithstanding when you can't do it for yourself
    Furthermore, remembering them close
    A decent lady is the thing that you are
    An excellent lady is who you're
    The Melanin in your Skin
    The Plumpness of your Lips
    The Honey of your Eyes
    The Span of your Hips
    The Shine in your Smiles
    The Power in your delicate Minds
    The Care in your Hands
    The Love in your Hearts
    Makes U a flawless Queens
    Your skin is imbued with rich melanin
    Sparkling, flickering in the light
    Your lips are stout resounding the tune
    Wonderful a capella, song solid
    The sweet nectar gaze of your eyes
    Gazing toward the sky into the skies
    Your regular hair it never streams
    A sprouting blossom regardless it develops
    The traverse of your hips so wide
    Here and there in certainty you walk
    Since You are dark.
    You are excellent,
    You are my beautiful dark angel.
    Blissful Moment by Lucky Ebere.

    Blissful Moment

    Sitting side by side
    The windows of her soul says it all.
    Sanity still tries to hold the mind
    From wandering into raunchy thoughts.
    All there was in the room;
    Eyes blazing with desiring need,
    Utter silence and quiet and
    Two who hung their desires in stillness.
    Lips drop to find a pair
    Which slides open in acceptance;
    Tasting the softness of the lower
    Sending shivers across spines.
    From the depths of her sonorous caves
    His name escaped.
    Pronounced with longing and need
    To bounce on the stiffness of my ears with a tease.
    Time hung still and stared
    At the scent of our loveliness
    With our eyes shut to the present
    To enjoy a moment ridden of despair.
    A moment of internal peace
    Where two fused to be one.
    A moment of eternal bliss
    Where two shared the warmth of their mouths.

    My African Love by Lucky Ebere
    My African Love
    Oh Africa! How I love thee
    A jewel you are on earth
    Treasured and nurtured by the suns' rays
    Greened and blessed with vegetation
    How do I profess my love to you?
    How do I show this affection to be true?
    Do I go to the endless plains of the Serengeti
    Where my eyes are treated to a luscious sight of wildebeests
    Do I go to the Nile
    And boast of her stretched miles
    Vast river of cleansing water
    Bathing my soul; making me truly African
    Do I go to the Kilimanjaro
    And worship your greatness in awe
    As I stand to gaze at the foot
    Of the mountain so grandeur
    Do I go to the Ogbunike caves
    Where my soul is refreshed
    By the satisfying taste
    Of the waters by nature blessed
    Do I go to the Niger
    And sing her praises
    Telling tales of lands
    That her richness irrigates
    Do I go to the Sahara
    And sing of the pulchritude;
    Beautiful brown grains of sand
    That give way for the heaviness of a camel's foot
    Do I go all the way
    To the god of light
    That blesses you with his rays
    When morning emerges from the night
    Oh Africa! You I lift
    On my strong arms
    For Her (the world) to see
    The beauty in your skin so dark
    I profess my love to you
    Oh Africa! Jewel of the Earth
    Precious orb of the sun
    Mother of true beauty.

    Divinity In Motion by Isaac Somto 
    Her movements, So computed,
    she never commits errors
    When she strolls, a million times, men swing to take a gander at her back
    She tempts each man
    When she takes a gander at you, somewhere down in her eyes
    You will see deep yearning, sentiment
    she poison with her eyes, she knows it'll clearly execute
    Each man she looks, she takes his senses
    Her waist, exceptional,
    She curve it, men eyes rolls simultaneously
    The way she moves her hair,
    Her lips, painted red
    Secures men in the place that is known for euphoria
    Her moves, shape, lips,
    Are on the whole celestial, paradise sent
    Fallen Heavenly messenger, I call her
    She's an excellent evil spirit
    A beautiful demon.
