Theme:

Longing
Sam Ojiyi
Desires burned to ashes in fires and blew away with the wind
Love gave birth to biting obsessions and the pain of labor they bring
Stretched beyond the perception of  being a misunderstood fiend
Poetry in motion drowned in oceans of love potions, she is…
Oluwadamilola Hybrid
Your body.. 
Curves and edges 
A longing.. 
To carve and smoothen
Anre John

Leonell Echa

Do not over think, you can never guess.  
Prudence Obadan-Enujiofor
My strands grew wet
My twin balls concurred
Tears reached for my throat
As I looked toward south craving my home
