J.E’s PIECES OF ME: If I Should Die Tomorrow…

share on:

If time should cease at midnight
If my blood freezes in its path
Know that at least I planned…had dreams and ambitions
To master the earth and fly the skies
To win hearts with woven words
That I would’ve loved to learn Spanish
To play the guitar and sing melodies
To inspire the cold and lead by example

If the sun should set at noon
If my strength completely fails me
Know that your words meant a lot
That I wouldn’t have kept up this charade for this long
You’re every action steering me away from this eventuality
My soul…still in hope of salvation
My body, shielded from depravation
The many dreams held together by my existence
Hopefully might still be fighting the strength of the wind from the North

If daybreak should never come
If my eyes remain shut in an endless slumber
Know that at least I tried
A pure love I constantly offered
The paradoxical contradiction of man completely eluding my comprehension
But not the chaos surrounding his mystical beliefs
My every action twisted for a mortal interpretation
My love, slowly painted till its face completely lost its allure
My immortality shredded
Condescending to the realms of man
In loss….my supreme nature dissipated

If darkness should overrun the morning sun
If my limbs fall into the perfect death stance
Know that I got tired of losing
Of keeping up this drama….of lying in wait
The wickedness and selfishness of man
A sure poisoned dart to forever drain my life
The lies, the deception…so glaring in my eyes…
Boring me to an eternal slumber
My failures pitting my soul with a burden beyond its yoke
My dreams, my desires…finally escaping me
My mind broken…my sword missing…my armor rattled

My breath failing….
My heart……my heart….
Its beat, slowing down…
Hurting with every swell
Till in a lasting embrace
Eternity now my only escape

In 4 words – Confused, Lost, Crazy, Curious, In 3 words – Stinks of greatness. In 2 words – Unpredictably Intelligent. In 1 word – Creative.

They say “…deeply erotic and sexual. Evoking fantasies beyond imagination…not your everyday poet. Yet flipping her over reveals another side….a talented and skilled nature decorated by a vivid imagination that turns dreams into ideas and eventually into elegant designs (www.oobejune.wordpress.com). Then again, beneath all these lies a mushy and emotional core….the source of the beauty that is June Ebube. In simple terms, she reflects the persona of a strong woman,the dream of the modern man!” No b me talk am o!
