JILTED: Wicked Fake Love Sliced Her Unsuspecting Heart ( Chain Haiku)

Nick Adegwe-Oshomah 1959 (Iyerekhu)



Failed love sliced her heart
Like Brutus' cruel cut on Caesar;
Left her drained and drowned.

She knew not his games
Hence her sensual organs danced
To his gigolo schemes.

She drowned in fake love
Deceived by his cherubic charm
" Killer" cheat at large.

The scheming stud
Ripped her heart, feigning a Romeo
Then shocked her, scrammed. .

The jilting Judas
Had sucked her dry like orange peels
Wounded, she wept, ruined.

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…
