Did you see me?

When I was in love-
Did you see me?

I was
Fire burning
Wind blowing
Honey melting.

I met him
and I fell,
and then
I flew.

Like constant electricity
in Nigeria,
I provoked shock
and hysteria.

When I loved,
I lived for his smile:
it was sublime.

My mind
was a river;
it flowed
and
flourished.

For I was his
in that moment
in time, and
he was mine.

Ivie M. Eke 2022.
