AFTER THE REGGAE(poem by Akinlade Oluwaseyifunmi)

I ran into your shadow
Memories you left behind.
I recall yesterday
When we summed one.
Now at heart we split
Divided by time cum distance.
Following Frank to France
The last pill you swallowed.
Once again I trod that way
That pathway parting our hopes and dreams
Thwarting our painted non-fictional future
Where we featured sugar-coated promises.
My mind raced backwards,faster
Beating 'Bolt' down memory lane.
Remembering your heart beats
Till you changed the frequency.
I was once lost to flames
Blazing your raggae
But you calmed my nitro nerves
When you switched to blues.
