Unending July – Rotimi Pelumi

Drip. Drop. Drip. Drop.
The water glides down from the roof
To the leaves, to the other, into the soil.
Goosebumps on my skin as the chill sets in.
The pattering of the rain on the roof;
A therapeutic song to my ear.
The lovely smell of the rain;
Comforts everyone fiber of my being.
Leaning in, into the rain;
A chill down my spine that comforts me.
These are nothing close to what you make me feel,
You smell like the fresh morning breath in a flower garden,
Your mouth to my neck produces a thousand goosebumps and I drip water.
Your touch sends chills down my spine I never recover from,
Your moans are my favorite song;I never forget. 
The July never stays for long
But this weather you create stays even when you’re gone.


Rotimi Oluwapelumi is a student of Osun State University currently studying English and international studies. She is also a photographer. She started writing as a way to express her feelings, but as time went on, she discovered she could delve deeper; now, writing has become something she is passionate about. This is the first competition she will enter, and she is proud of what she does.
