30, a collection of poems by Jaachi Anyatonwu banner
since you left…

our bed hurts without you
no music in the bathroom

our room mourns
the death of your moans

home is now a hut
of howling hollow hearts

there’s absence of laughter
even the city’s lost its fiesta

and life is now lifeless
since you left
