2 Poems by Akpa Arinzechukwu

After My Shadow Left 

I am afraid
Even in my dreams to
Fall off from an unknown cliff 

What a madman I’ve become
Ever since my shadow left 


What My Love Is 

My love is a soured apple
Hidden in a cracked dark earth pot
Buried in the far desert
Unmarked 

My love is a mystery
I am afraid
The day it resurrects
I die again
