Naija Mosquitoes- Obehi Aigiomawu

Miniature vampires
Triumphant in daylight
Precise at nightfall
Humming its famous solemn tune
Taunting my ears
Impregnating,  my skin.

Ethereal laughter pierces the silence
 As they watch me pull my wrapper
They feast within this tent
My efforts futile.
A bulge on my eyelids
A bulge on my lip
Sleep stares pityingly from a corner
Frustration brews within

They have eaten to their fill
Lazily they hug the wall
I become the predator
They, the prey
I shall show as much

Mercy as I have been shown.
