I am Emeka Collins from Nigeria. I am a poet. My Muse is found at the junction where pain and life collides. Most of my poems are published on Facebook with the name Emeka Collins and on my blog: firstname.lastname@example.org. Do well to check it out.
A sample of my poems
"The Return" (In memory of Chukwuemeka Akachi) My last rememberance of you Was that night we held hands And you let mine slip away You walked far away back into the night That you let its darkness envelope us Or was it just me that was lost in this madness that cocoons us in mid-day. I could hear the castles we built in the air fall apart; this little mansion that fits us so well, where love mends our broken whole. Your absence roars at my weak self I crouch and die gradually in silence I wish I could cry But no one will hear me. They're use to my pain; they no longer bother. Each morning wakes up with its own sadness Each night falls with its own tears. Every yawn is a yearning for you Every mourn is dirge for you. I look helplessly at the door you banged On your way out. Hoping you walk back this way again or I die a prisoner of your return forever...
