Never Again

Damore and I finally got to do an ‘official’ collaboration and here’s the result. Here’s to many more. Hopefully. Any other takers are welcome as well πŸ™‚


The sky

Burst with aΒ haze of white full giant clouds

Splattered and smeared around;

teasing the sun with their bashful strides

The sun

It took no notice

But they turned and swirled



How they touched my heart,

Oh, how they reminded me

of a time

When all I lived for

Was to be kissed by your eyes.

But not anymore.


Kisses to live for

Kisses to die by

That’s what they were,

But not anymore

Swaying and twirling;

Seeking your attention

Oh, by how much did I miss it?

I imagine I am earth and you the sun

Twists and turns later,

Still perpetually in the line of sight

Yet, I missed it.

Thinking I was participating in the dance of could-be lovers,

When really I was the only one ready to tango

Longing to be kissed by your eyes

When I should have savoured being kissed by your light

I missed it

But never again.

    Hi Tony,

    This flows beautifully, I like how well-written poetry feels like one is being caressed with a soft feather, the smile that appears on one’s face can’t be helped. πŸ™‚

  9. Tony Michele · May 6, 2016

    Hi Nedoux :),

    Your comment just put a smile on my face 😁. Yes, it elicits that sort of response doesn’t it?

    Thank you for reading and commenting. πŸ™πŸΎ

    Hey Immanuel,

    But you know that you are also a card-carrying member of the ‘gifted-with-words’ party. πŸ™‚

  15. D'Dream · June 20, 2016

    Lol…… But you are a member of the exclusively exclusive excos. Hahaha

  16. Nedoux · June 20, 2016

    I haven’t paid the party dues this year, it’s way too expensive. I blame the hike in the Dollar-Naira rate. Lol

  17. D'Dream · June 20, 2016

    Lol. Ha! Thinking of that one alone is enough to cruise someone’s bp to an irreversible all time high. Its simply crazy
