A Note of Healing | Adepoju Timilehin | Poetry

The poem grips the memory strain the past leaves on the human mind. He designated it as a soul-wretching demon, a stigma that is endured.

"The poem grips the memory strain the past leaves on the human mind. He designated it as a soul-wretching demon, a stigma that is endured, not severable."

An open door and the sea


A Note of Healing 


The memory still haunt, its scar 
hum to my mind in falling cadence,
sometimes in hymns of hope, 
my lips voicing its lyrics.

sometimes in whispers that ride 
the cool breeze of the morning
sometimes in blaring screams and honks,
jittering me to greenlight of its pathway.

Like the demon divulge a saint soul,
ripping out its will to live,
like the lion pounce on its prey, 
sniffing out flesh & bones with it claws.

the stigma became a shadow 
in the daylight & I therefore live 
in the darkened realm of my thoughts.

The pain mapped on my thigh
is beyond the shores of words 
and/or the vast island of lines
or hovering wings of emotions 
to be carved on canvas of art.

Metaphor isn't worthy of a king 
to slave the millennium pains 
of regret in this memory. But I live.
