Can You Keep Our Secrets?

Obehi is a writer, aspiring artist...her current obsession; photography and greener pastures. Oh, and when she's not 'scribbling and doodling' she actually is a student.
'Can you keep our Secrets ?' is her first published work with contributions from her older sister.

Naija Mosquitoes

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.
