I Found My Missing Rib



Like the soothing hearth of my home
Your beautiful warm embracing hands
Disarmed the wintry icy cold hands
Of age old loneliness that has been my home
In whose dreary dungeons I have roamed

My future union with you, none can ever put asunder
For today, I found my missing rib, as I looked into your eyes
I knew I have found my long lost sweetie pie
That will quench my life long battering hunger
Convincing me I will search for true love no longer.

He joined the defunct poetry.com website in 1996 and was awarded the Distinguished membership pin and plaque after winning The Editor's Choice award for one of his poetry contribution in 1998. An abridged version of that contribution titled "Hellish Times Are Here" was published in a Nigerian anthology, "Passports To The New World"(Apex Books Ltd., Lagos, 2001). Many of his poems were accepted for publication in the various anthologies of the then International Library of Poetry of the then poetry.com. Some were also accepted to be made into Musical CDs of baroque music but were never done because he couldn't give his consent then. For poetry, his first love is the alliterative verse which is reflected in all his very serious poems dealing with important social and environmental issues and mankind. He also has two manuscript novels(on fiction) currently with publishers. more…
