Beyond Relationship By Izunna Okafor

Where lies the end
Smoothly and roughly it flows
The end of which is bend
How vast the pain it glows

It’s humbly aglow with joy
As the two embrace the novelty
What the world cannot destroy
Expressed in bed with rose of honesty

Phone becomes a handbag
Always a vogue for the neophyte
With less remorse for last card
And ever prepared for goodnight

How long can that last
After what becomes the next
The lady becomes a bush rat
Always in search for a smooth nest

Some ladies are left afloat
Timeless till old
But bewildered as goat
What a homeless as owl

Who then becomes a foam
As the muted ones are more silenced
And the pretty ones have now eloped
Beyond the ring now appears a fence

Annihilation of number
What a speedy deletion
Who can see beyond the matter
A recourse bemoaned amidst retention

Beyond the rosary bed
The vision is meant for future
He who grasps the blend
Is quick to make forfeiture
