Loud presence
Emmanuel Davies Oct 2021
I tried to get rid of the loud silence
Of your voice ringing in my head
I tried to shut out the presence
Of your absence
But the more I tried
The more crowded I get
In the solitude of loneliness
Only if I could break it down

Hands of time
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2021
We sat patiently
Waiting for the free flow of traffic
Then you alighted
Said you needed a stretch
I waited and watched
As you took a step after another
Till you were quite a distance
Then it started
There was movement
I called out to you
No reply
I screamed and beckon to you
Still you just kept walking
Farther away
Until you are no longer unreachable
Till you were out of sight

I wanted to come after you
He held me back
He said
That's your bus stop
I hoped he was wrong
Hoped you would turn back
And say it was all a prank
But no!!!
You never came back
It dawned on me
And then I wished
For all the time
We spent apart restored
Wished I had made good use of time
And made you proud
I wished I could tell you
How much I love you
One more time
I wished I could hear your voice
Telling me you miss me too

If only I could turn back the hands of time...
Opportunity once a life time

My Pride
Emmanuel Davies Jan 2021
My Body My Right
A sequence by which I live
Violating the twist of the night
To tell a tale of a life time
If I must my wish
To do accordingly
To my body as I will
To tell the story
Of how I violate my body
Without the fear of justice
Lost in the plain
Of painful pleasure
With the assurance of the night
Sitting closely
Beneath the cool
Of the moonlight
I tell the tale
Of the violation
Of my right
My body and my pride

Very so tight

The Art Of Writing
Emmanuel Davies Nov 2020
Morphemes clustered in unison
Dancing wistfully
To the melodious tune
Of ink dabbed on empty pages
Drawn from the deep well of art
Framed from freely forged phrases
Adorned in a symphonic clause
Of well taught sentences

Oh the simplicity of it
The art of writing!!

Nothing To It
Emmanuel Davies Oct 2020
When nations beckon
And the world refuse to reckon
Desires begins to burn
To the very last one

Heart throbbing against self *******
Fighting false battles
Along the way
Liars exonerated in white robes
Perambulating, freely reassuring false hope
Beggars bellowing bad breath
Living luxurious lives like lords
Tailored tight thieves take turn
Chopping cheap chops
On platinum platters
Thinkers in their infinite wisdom
Making hilarious decisions

What's there to it?
In this vain world
If not that by your greed
We should be crushed
Into nothingness
Then maybe our eyes
Will open to see the world
For its cunningness.
A better nation would be achieved if only we would take off our blindfold both people and elected.

Nothing To It
Emmanuel Davies Oct 2020
When nations beckon
And the world refuse to reckon
Desires begin to burn
Upturning to the last one
Heart throbbing against self *******
Fighting battles along the way
Liars in exhornorated in white robes
Perambulate, freely reassuring false hope

Beggars bellowing bad breath
Living luxurious life like Lords
Tailored thought thieves take turns
Chopping cheap chops
On platinum platters
Thinkers in their infinite wisdom
Making hilarious descisions

What's there to it
In this vain world
If not, that by your greed
We should be crushed into nothingness
Then maybe our eyes will open to see
The world for its cunningness

Free a short word
On a long run
For some its a big fraud
Their minds keep them bound
Freedom is a thing  of the mind

Lately I’ve been getting no replies
To the questions I ask
Don’t I deserve an answer?
Or I don’t at all matter?
Please don’t quench my fire 🔥
I’m only trying to be better
That’s all
Nothing more
So when do I get my feedback?
Or am I that much of a bore?
Please your point thus matter
It goes a long way

Otherwise all nature will wonder
If it be pride....

The beauty of it
The world I tell you
In the last days
When I shall cease
No more to be
But caught up with him
In the firmament

When I shall no longer
By my sins be judged
Nor condemned by my wrongs
But be tested in fire 🔥
My service to Him

Walking the isle

With your heart

The fair fears of the isle
You hoping she doesn’t ditch on you

Hero's Bliss
Emmanuel Davies Sep 2020
Born from mist
A hero quite a marvel
Demons he must fight from within
Lest his soul be taken from him

A hero's chant
Wakanda Forever
Still ring on our lips.
Now left behind
Family, friends and foe
Both fiction and more reality

Though your soul
Now from us depart
To pant with Panthers
In a world beyond reach

Forever in our heart 💓
You'll be.
In tribute to Chadwick Boseman
A legend of his own legacy

Dream Or Reality
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
The world turn grey
As a turmoil of whirlwind
Builds within me

My soul quite frail
Must exit the building

Is it a dream?
Or was it reality?
There I lay
While I stood looking at me.
At your observations
It took me quite a while to get the picture.

Weeping Africa
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
Far from home
Our minds thus wander
To a land
Vast beyond the ocean
Where the whites lives yonder
With minds stone cold
We shun our homemade products
The fats of our toil
We reserve for aliens
Who in their world
Are not worthy
Of a strike of an applaud
Nor a job to be poor

Our children scavenge for crumbs
In the hands of strangers
In their home land.
Our leaders with alluring deceit
Conjure soothing malicious stories
To educate us on the benefits
Of this benevolent strangers

Our youths for ignorance
Scramble to be noticed
By this fair coated aliens
Who's helping outstretched claws
Would save us from the ignorance
Of our daring impulsiveness.

No-one will ease her of the heaviness
The heaviness of her yielding back
Nor till beneath her scorching smiles
But would rather
Dance to the sophisticated tune
Of the aliens piano
Neglecting the message
Of her talking drum.

**! mother Africa
How she weeps so
Beckoning on her children
To come back home
To the hospitable warmth
Of her essence.
Where we love
One another without fear
Nor look down
At our resourcefulness.

My heart is very fragile
So I kept it  from your love
Love is a painful wound
Yours, I might never recover from!
Don't know when I started this!
I think I learnt well from friends

Even if you love someone else
Please just notice me
Nothing hurts more than going unnoticed by someone you're emotionally attracted to.
Ouch! It hurts!

Beguiling faces
Smothering soothing smiles
Dealing deadly dreaded dives
All Liars!

All sides fair
Life's a big square

To gnawing twilight snare
Memories recall
To a bayonet dance

Colour highlight
Natures creatures chuckles
Blushing between blissful blisters

Still, regardless of a rose's thorn
From within a beauty is born

This quarantine got me dizzy
Will someone help me
With a cup of hot coffee
                               Go....... On
Being lazy..........
                   Lying..... on
       My bed
Starting at empty pages.....
Dabbed with ink
Of once beautiful memories.
Memories before I was quarantined.
Aug 2020 · 443
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
Ink dabbed on empty sheets
Jailing behind lines
Almost lost memories
What a perfect sublime
Ink and pages
Of almost forgotten memories.
A short pencil is better than a long memory

Love Rebound
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
When the will of two lovers bond
Is forged by one desired curse
To deal what the heart must
In earnest against  all of natures force
Then the story of two lovers war
Must end in a tragic form
Never bound to be together
But separated by death
Even till the life to come.

Time Tells 3 (friendship)
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
Time tells lately
Of #friendship so cold
Hyenas in the hides
And quite disturbingly close
Upon your fat they feed and reside
Consuming mutely from the inside
Until you have been drained
Of your useful essence and soul
Aug 2020 · 218
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
The peace of the night
Goes without fuzz
Fought with a repellent
Mosquitoes can no longer buzz
Today's determination repels tomorrow's disturbances
Don't know just talking
Say no to bad blood

Time Tells 2
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
Time tells lately
Of a world gone bad
Mega bucks of destruction
Resulting in economy evasion
Unscaled and undeterred  
Nature draining and global warming
A coherent of capital dished round
Consumed largely by corrupt deities

Time Tells(1)
Emmanuel Davies Aug 2020
Time tells lately
Of a willows night
The menacing hoot
Of a flying 🦉 owl
The excruciating pain
Of a joyous 💓 heart
The undue laughter
Of a wailing mouth
Of happiness melancholy
In a home unfound
It comes in four notes

Salt And Sugar
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
Both are white
Salt and sugar
Both in their place
Would make your day
When in some case
They merge to create a way
So when you differentiate
Know that both are great
And both can fail
Trust shouldn't be centralised
Everyone deserves a level of trust
Everyone has got a place in your life
You've just got to find their use
Jul 2020 · 114
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
Flee from the vile of him
Subdued beneath your feet
Be a coward of peace
And let love guide you from within
Never you turn from your dreams
Success lurks
When you live your dreams
Never stop dreaming

Look how I blossom

Sanity Of Fame
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
I'm a star in the light
I hear my name being chanted in the hall of fame
Giving way for pride and ego
To rise along the way

I'm a star that's alright
Walking the Isle of fame is my right
I do what I do, it's my pride
Why I do what I do?
I'll tell you why.

I do it for the love
Not for the fame
I do it for a course
Not to play some game
I do it to put smiles on your face

I do it to teach lessons
Not to mock masses
I do it for our stars
Who let fame into their pride
And now lost unto which cause they fight
I do it to preach the gospel
And not to insult people
I do it to build others from the interior
And not to feel superior

With all this being my pride
I do it to keep sane
In this large hall of fame.

The Letter
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
God created the world in seven days
Six actually, the day he created a spectacular being (you)
In five ways will God bless you
And the four Seasons never fail to favour you
The three recipe for living (knowledge, wisdom and understanding) will always be with you
With two lines left to tell you what I want to tell you
I tell you one thing

Thanks for appreciating my poetry and I
Thanks to all of you who appreciate what I can do

4 Worries
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
The melancholy of life
Is to be alive
The melancholy of love
Is to fall into it
The melancholy of truth
Is in what it holds within
The melancholy of death
Is to not want to die

Oh! Sorry, forgot there was a fifth
The melancholy of worries
Is that it solves nothing.
So why worry?
Jul 2020 · 73
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
Do not quit
Until you find the light
From the enclosed cave
You must escape
Jul 2020 · 53
Emmanuel Davies Jul 2020
You ask me how I feel
You wish to know
What I think
I kept silent
Not because you do not deserve an answer
It's just that
I can't the find words
To express how I feel,
Phrases to express my thoughts.
Deep down I feel lost and alone
In this inhabited,
But undefined world.
