DIPSEY_DOODLE By Precious Adekunle

Written by Editor

A lonely cold night it was
Giddy and giddy my head was
More than a carousel spins
Laying a bundle of nerves
Ragged thought
Skittish heart
Pale face
Wistful eyes

And just up my window
Came forth this subtle glow
Through the openings I peeped
Explored, I couldn’t but proceed
And In lull to me it whispered
The most beautiful words ever I’ve hearkened
Comfort was all I felt
The whole of me all pleasant

Too beautiful to be ignored
Too warm to be scorned
Too soothing to be freed
Too intriguing to be evaded
Lost for words my mouth was
Mind travelled miles in thousands
What you are I couldn’t profess
Millions kept racing upstairs

And then I called it my moonlight
Just it my eyes could see everyday and night
Some crazy intimacy almost too tight
I minded not if it was wrong nor right
I seemed to ignore stars like they were nothing
I failed to see the Sun as if in nullity
My world was soaked in my moonlight’s amity
It felt like I needed nothing but it’s ubiquity

Days went after days
Nights gone after nights
A faithful night swimming in gaiety
I looked through the window of my ecstasy
My subtle glows absence was all I found
Without a prior notice it disappeared
And again I stared disconcerted
A shadow somewhat its fuzzy shape I eyed

Thenceforth fickle it turns
A yo-yo doesn’t do worse
like a passive school pupil
It truants both dusk and dawn at my peril
My body and soul left void in darkness
My heart flutters heavily in soreness
My red eyes filled with Indian Ocean
My nose dares not hold its composition

Through tiny pipes I travel clouds in daylight Through bottles my blood turns liquor at night
To omit in head there was a man I ever named
And some sweet madness that got me dazed
Perhaps he never was moon
Or someday he comes back in my moan
Or i need just go back to my sleep
Or probably wake up if it were a dream
