Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

On your request for total love

It's better in time I lay shots

For love herself has no key

To set a countryman at peace

We meddled and cuddled

From cold night winds

For the best you seek 

My night might still quiver

I can't please a young girl

In the spike of youth

Am old man now

And upon winter's tale

I cherish more the shallowness

Of the fire-place of thoughts 

Of you though

I worry becoming unfit

So I will lead you to the clanging bell

I will lead you to the field of yellow daffodils

In central Yorkshire

Together we can dance

In the rains of England

By the edges of the sea

Cockshot with drowse

I can sing you lullaby

To achieve the tragic balance

Of broken spaces

I was never one to love completely

I am an Army Airman

And my love is with the skies!
