CloudYOU! #TheShoot (Part 3)

This poem is the second in my CloudYOU! series. Learn more about the series in the Introduction and read the first poem.

…and the day before this
dewy new one, I
sought and saw you in all

around me.
talked about you,
to no one in particular.

thought about you.
wove fine futures of us,
around you.

dreamed about you. crowned
you the king that you
are and will soon be and oh! the

tragedy that I never
really talked to you.
and yes, today too…





– Friday, 3rd March 2018; North Kaneshie, Accra.
