Ediye mmi
a lamp dangles loosely
glowing in the dark
the lamp is invisible to my eyes
it's dancing flame catches my eyes
the current of her—the flame—
flows into my curious eyes,
slashing through darkness
with burning passion,
it hits me—the depth of me—
generating a heat candescent,
on that same spot where butterflies flutter
whenever you say my name in Ibibio accent

Ediye mmi,
you're the dangling lamp
your love, the dancing flame
all I see is your heart
a divine vanity now my bane

Ediye mmi,
afo ado utin ima,
in the prevailing darkness of distance
your love lights the way
tearing down walls of partition
bridging you and I
with rays of pure affection
