An Epistle | by Ayo Sogunro

I woke up in the dark
A sober mien on my visage

My voiceless thoughts
Spiralled and twirled
All around you

I wished you were here
By me,
You, my divine sin,
My saving fault

I pulled the coverlet
Around me and saw you
Glimmering in silk and satin
The rainbow, woven in your hair

And your graceful smile
Lulled me
Back into a peaceful
