My life

By Joy Etukudo

I shiver from the inside out
as the moon comes out to play
the blood in my body whispers to me
there was no yesterday

The tears in my heart dry faster
than water under a flaming sun
i have nothing to do but breath
as the pain in my skin takes hold of my life

I have been stripped
the stars no longer shine in my sky
and love is non existent
the wind breaks me before it even blows

There was never a life for me
the earth mocks my every move
i was an accident walking through the clouds
and i fell in between

There is no place for nothing
there are no smiles in my sky
there are no skies in my world
there is no world for me here
