My heart shakes with fear
Of losing someone so dear
The one for whom I care

You own my heart
Please do not tear it apart
From where should I again start?

Now my nights are so long
And my pain is so strong
For to you does my heart belong

You’ve been my source of peace
Into my life you brought bliss
Now all I want to say is please

Fear is terrible!

Fear is terrible!

With you my heart is secure
To my aching heart you’re the cure
Because you came with a heart so pure

Your attributes are sublime
Good qualities prime
The best of your time

So do not leave me alone
Living life on my own
Please pity my sober tone




Durodola Folarin Quadri. Born on the first of January 1991. I attended the university of Ibadan as a student of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering. Editor-in-Chief of the departmental press organisation. I like books and one of the best I ever read was Living, Loving and Learning by Professor Felice Leonardo Buscaglia. I enjoy sports and computer games. Poetry gives me succour when I write about how I feel. Most times I write based on real situations because they inspire me more than imagination. I’m quiet and sometimes I’m being labelled as shy, while some simply say I’m an introvert.
