Ella | Tolu’ Akinyemi | Poetry

If Ella was a song,

I will dance to the beats till I’m breathless.

Ella was the word that was spoken to heal broken hearts.

I heard the words echo “heal her”.


If Ella was a poem,

I would read till the pages are grey,

and I fade into oblivion.


If Ella was a deity,

I will worship at her temple all year long.

How do you draw the portrait of a goddess?

That would be some “Ella” work.
