Poem: The Gorilla Lady

By: Zunayet Ahammed


The night sky calls me
To see her sapphire
The deep dark forest requests me
To be his bosom
The lonely clouds offer me
To soar very high
In the naked heaven
Only you don’t ask me
How I’m here on earth?
I also don’t like reminiscing
Because I’ve no faith in you,
The Gorilla lady.
Music mesmerizes me
Day and night
Beauty calls me over the sea
Rivers invite me to heed its cadence
Little springs beckon me
To look its dancing beauty
Stars whisper in my ear
To take in their twinkling beauty
The moon appeals me
To be her guest just for one day
Everyone loves me fondly
I do cherish them
Always in my heart
Except you
The Gorilla lady.
