Poem: In a vacant train
By: Sankara Olama-Yai
I found god in your eyes
Where had he gone
Do you remember that night
when I hit my head on the roof of a vacant train
Your laugh was a heavenly lullaby
I let my head lie on you
Could you feel my insecurity then ?
That train ride could’ve been eternity
And i would’ve paid for it to last
With the blood of my soul.
In that moment,
immersed in the warmth of your hazel iris
I understood why love was so dangerous
