Best Poem of uche peter umez

Dark Hope
An elf stokes up the ashes of hope
Within my gaunt breast ––
Even in the crushing waters
Of poverty
That engulfs my land
That chokes the troubled millions
And me.

Wrenching
Among the lucid stretch of stars
a silver crescent

moon
its warmth filtering into the room
tenderly around me
like your embrace

once

Now sprawled on the couch
alcohol caressing
my head
my thoughts

I stare and stare out the window
wishing
hoping
