Harmattan.

Harmattan|| Viano Dee

He told her he loved her

a million times, a million ways

but it only made her winter cold.

I guess his love didn’t taste right

his affection was just a terrible meal.😥

Skin dry, no matter how hard she tried

to glow…

Oils, Vaseline and glycerin

just wouldn’t stick

cause his love forced them out—

Oh, and the sole of her feet:

dry scales

that wouldn’t leave.

And no matter how hard she chased them

they came back the very next day.

He raped her of sweater-less wears

and forced her to hide in bed and blankets

socks, gloves and jackets

even at that, he always found her out.

“What kind of love is this”, she cried.😫

Unmoved by her tears he replied:

Harmattan my darling, it’s harmattan.
