Behind Her walls!!!

Behind the walls
That break the lips
Lies the paintings
Of graven shadows

Behind the rose
That spills her face
Lies the thunder
That smiles the garden

Behind the hands
That hippies along
Lies the cold
That sweeps the desert

Behind the eyes
That see the day
Lies the flames
That hurts the summer

Behind her
Oh! Behind her
Very self
Lies the shadow
That weeps with hurt


About Michael Ogundele

A writer, ardent reader and lover of nature. fell in love with writing five years back and I've been engraved in her arms ever since. I share my little way of writing poetry and reflections based on Catholic faith and Spirituality on this space. I hope you enjoy reading as we ride the same chariot to the leafy greens. Do follow me and together, let us jump into the ocean of my ink.

  1. What a beautiful poem. The rhythm flows so easily and the last line is very touching.
