Spill - Abdulmueed Balogun

Spill out your mind to me girl!

set loose the tamed cupid-firefly pulsating in the Orchard of your mind,

spill out that loving Eros description of me roaming in the chamber of your thoughts.


Purge your feelings into poems if they're too laden to be ferried to my ears by your mouth.

Girl! that veil of pretence, you're lurking behind is too thin and sheer,

I can see through it.


The mask you wear to faux the unquenchable passion

that burns from the burner of your heart for me,

when your eyes like a bulbul perch on

the twig of my face---- is transparent.


Spill out your mind, tell me how you truly feel, girl! this feeling is a mutual jazz, two can dance.
