#MoistPlaces: Tattoo

#MoistPlaces: Tattoo

Hello people of the world! I’m Oyinkan Agboola (I know my name shows above) but since we are friends you can call me Yin of LL 😉

I have two segments on Lucid Lemons; Lucid Interviews and Moist Places. For last six months, I have been putting a lot of attention on ‘Lucid Interviews’ speaking to artists like AT Merari, Olú, Jazzz and Creative writer, Cisi Eze.

From today, I would like to announce the commencement of #MoistPlaces, a segment where I talk about love through a word one might not expect affection to be channeled through. With this in mind, I present to you the first piece from my most Moist Places.

TATTOO

[ta-too]

  • The act or practice of marking the skin with indelible patterns, pictures, legends, etc., by making punctures in it and inserting pigments.
  • A pattern, picture, legend, etc., so made.
  • A knocking or strong pulsation

 

 

I cannot explain the inexplicable urge to mark my skin with you

To inscribe you on me with my blood as ink like a prayer on sand

A constant reminder that a beauty like you exists

An attempt to put god in flesh.

*

I carry a picture of you inside my mind

I am no artist but I can trace out your every curve

On a piece of paper. On my heart.

An image that could never fade.

*

I hear pounding in my head

Like a migraine

Like a heartbeat

No. It’s just you.
