So here is me lay down my cards

Here is me lay down my axe

Here is me unsaddle my horse

To lay down my plots 

Gold have I none

Silver I poses neither

A pair of bracelets I may provide 

But here is really what I need provide

A heart, roughed up by scars

A heart, broken, smitten, bitten

Though fragile, yet strong

Desperate, yet calm

Needy, yet wealthy

Wilt thou take thee…

My heart, my love, my all

I pray thee…

Peradventure I sought that which was lost…

Now I seek that which is mine

Not to store away in lock

But to shew forth like the sun

Take mine heart, I beseech thee

And make it whole again

Take thee my smitten bitten love

And make it thy pretty little castle

For I long for thee

Take me, for I know not any
Eric Mawuena Egbeta
