Melancholy: My Cup of Muse by Deborah Udochukwu Nnagbo #WPD2019

As I staggered down a crooked trail
With a cup of sadness!
Collected in the vicious darkness
Of loneliness…
Battering my concave vessel
Spurn by natures paw,in solitary!
To skink the world of my genteel muse.

There,in the ambiance of this demonize trail stood I in awe!
Gaping and gazing at the mountain of thoughts
Rising,my head spin!
Marooned in the dark clouds of muse.
I let out a lugubrious cry!

In lines of phrase,the words came.
The sounds began to rhyme,my heart drum the beats
As the muse flows,endlessly!
Into my vessel…
And like a mist,iced!
The world stood at ease.


For this year’s #WorldPoetryDay2019 I have decided to publish the works of emerging and already published poets on my blog. Today and on the next few days I will be posting poetry from different poets from all parts of the globe. The #WPD2019 is a harshtag which will be used for this poetry events.
