Writerly Thinz: Words Of The Day


Helpless under the power of love

They delighted in each other

The woman promised to another

And the man smitten by her beauty

And when the tides of the thrill had washed away

In its wake lay broken hearts and mangled hopes

Lives never again to be the same. ā€“ Walter Uchenna Ude @Walt_Shakes

    A simple, concise poem yet with so much depth and the moral of the story, so glaring. Well done, Walter; you’ve delivered yet again. Stale news right? Who cares! LMAO!

    The story is a common occurrence but, the packaging is what I call new and griping to the end.
