The Journey Begins Here!

Poet!K Flavour is a blog for upcoming African poets to share their work with the world. The blog features poems on Africa, life, nature, friendship, Love,...and everything that people care about.

This year, the best poems featured on this blog will be compiled and published in a single poetry book and the proceeds from sold copies shall be donated to charity within Africa.

This is a project for charity, get involved, join as a poet, tell friends, post comments, follow this blog,…take a step to solving the problems in your society….if you believe that Africa is not as it should be, join Poetik Flavor, the journey begins here!

To join as a poet and obtain blogging rights, contact the blog founder Imran Nakueira, be sure to send two sample poems and an Email Adress.

Being a charity project, poets will not be paid for any of their works published in the final edited collection. Poets with works appearing will however be credited for their work and, of course, receive at least one copy of the final publication. No poems will be reprinted without the permission of the poet. More info about the final publication will be layed out at the appropriate time. Thank you.

Before I Even Knew

Before i even knew,
My heart charmingly grew.
I blinked your way
As you slunk away.
Like an irresistible temptress,
You robbed my heart from its hidden fortress.

Before I even Knew
My life flared anew.
I could not resist love anymore,
My gullible passions floated back ashore
And in our ears we were hissing,
Then we were kissing,
We made love and it grew a new definition,
Our own, filled with tense unseen emotion.

Before I even Knew
My lips were wet with morning dew!
The lonely soldier in real life I woke,
And now I know, love is a never-ending joke.
