How She Felt by Ismail Junaid Oluwadamilare - The Isaac Somto Foundation

  • How She Felt by Ismail Junaid Oluwadamilare

    My sadness became agitated
    Tears rolled down my Jurassic face
    When she told me how she felt aftermath and lonely
    With blood advertising it color on her tough cute face

    And she said,  I cried :
    About the tortuous and harrowing experience she faced

    About how she bemoaned the precarious nightmares she had

    How she beckoned on death as a relief to sue her heart

    How she felt comatose and saw her abode in hell

    How she languished alone until she became it inhabitant

    How her gaunt  physique like one with AIDS

    How worms flaunted her ropy intestines, how flies soared above her sore pores

    How she laughed, a coarse laughter

    How the sun smashed her body and the moon bores her all night

    How she acted grouchy about the debilitating acts of the interlopers and government

    How she saw life a contra entry

    Good peace chained
    Good justice strangled
    And she saw unripe death

    Paciolo pen saint
