Day 7 of GD_Words poems.

Do you want to sleep tonight? ~Adewumi Godwin
I don’t.
It’s lonely here.
There’s unfamiliar shadows.
And unknown voices.
I don’t want to sleep.
You can’t protect me from there.
Will you read to me?
Sing me a sweet melody?
Calm me from this anxiety?
I don’t want to sleep. ~J.A.A.G
Of course I will.
Stay up with you.
All night.
I’ll sing your strange shadows to dance.
I’ll read to you,
stories of past loves
before you found me.
Real love.
You don’t have to sleep and even if you do
I’ll keep vigil for you. ~Adewumi Godwin


Day 5 of GD_words poems.


I tell these stories as they come to me- they always find me.

One after another, these wide eyed toddlers panting for new stories.

They liked the chills of horror, so they would often ask to be told stories that made switching off their room lights a bit more adventurous.

Almost like their world didn’t have enough thrill so they sought after mediums like their fantasies and my twisted mind to answer life’s questions.

~Adewumi Godwin

Day 4 of GD_Words poems.


Words are beautifully hideous.
Standing alone they tell stories; “lost”.
Standing together they speak riddles; “I am lost?”.
Used right they reveal truth; “I am lost!”.
In the hands of a wordsmith they become characters only a depraved mind can have; “I don’t want to be found”.

~Adewumi Godwin

Day 3 of GD_WORDS poems. 

I’ve been musing over the last sunset

And I think I want it.


Like I want you.


Who am I kidding.

You are my last sunset.

Gone forever.~Adewumi Godwin  .

Distance is just a matter of numbers.

Can you envisage the future of my image?

I’ll turn your last into your present.

Open your eyes to my colorful soul.

We are the sun and I will set you free.~J.A.A.G

You opened a new door of hope and led me through it

I appreciate your constant attention

Other than the blood we share, we both also know I let you down and can’t figure out why But hey! On the day when hope meets chance, we will stand breath to breath wondering why we didn’t take the journey together

Your tears will meet mine and all of our past will dissolve into silence

For a minute,

You’ll look into my eyes and see that I never meant to hurt you.

I just didn’t want to hurt me anymore while you watched.

~Adewumi Godwin

Silence in pain is a painful choice. But it’s what I chose.

Day 1 of GD_words poems. 

There’s a lie I’m telling with my eyes and covering with my palm. This mirror never lies to me, it tells me everything I’ve told it to say. I’m not vengeful but I don’t forget. My lips are true, only the worthy can have them. My words are few for a reason. The tongue of a talkative is the instrument of his undoing. I’ve seen me before through many mirrors, this is the clearest of all. This is the truest of all. Till we meet again. –Adewumi Godwin
