TO THE MAN I LOVE…

I write this in tears,Resentment permeating my very essence,Agony engulfing the eternity of my soul,And Shredding me bare. In a grip, I clutch at my heart,Scorned beyond the bounds of remedy,Stinging from affection so vile,Longing for passion so divine,Yet revolting inclination ensues. In anguish, I pen my sorrow,Cascading the drains of happiness,Maligning the fountain of …

ANGST OF WAKE…

The wind rustles,Screaming and piercing the never-ending night,Gratingly penetrating the dead of the soul,Bringing nought cold,Dark, coarse cold. Helter-skelter she evades,Antsy and still,Engulfed by the serene remorse,Tender yet hard,Dark, harsh cold. In her dreams, she fightsHeinously, seeking refugeRunning from terror,And in the tropical black,Silence seizes. Howling and grieving as the demons ariseShredding all harbingers of …

OBLIVION OF FATE…

On the floor, she lay,Drenched in fear,Grasping for air,And quivering against the piercing cold. In the dark, shadows loomedSnapping branches of the leafy limbo,An abyss shattering from ambivalence,And clamouring for Hope. On the floor, she lay,A life dissipating away,Agitated, trembling, gnawing at death’s threshold,And riveting the edge of the restless last. In the bleak of …

GIRL! GET UP…

That day started just like any other.With her on her knees,thanking the creator for yet another dayon this measly planet.Her lungs expanded with every intake,and her heart palpitated to the joy that came with breath flutters. It was just like any twenty-four hours,Depicted by the Moon gently sleeping,As the Sun tardily made its way East.With …

THREE LITTLE WORDS…

It had come to this,Those three words had to be said,But every time my cavities opened,My intellect got kidnapped. Yet there he was,The glory of my days,Whose beauty I heart for days,And today was no different. The breeze came down sweet,Gently, fluidly caressing,Flowing kindly in tandem with all around it. Yet there he was,His laughter …

AMIDST THE MURKY TIDES…

Suffocated by the sultry motionless,And the ambience of the earth’s duskiness,The North-Westerly wind gushes nothingBut ill mizzle,Tenderly encompassing the life above. The flaky, snappy branches groovingTo nothing but silk-soft leaves frozen to the core,Calls to the black tropical hiss of the ocean,And the drumming of wood pecks in the creeping shadows. The wrinkles in the …

THE EDGE OF SECRETS…

Just as the clouds madden on a rainy day, They swim like flies on a covert operation, Destroying faith in the path of shadows, And consummating danger in the realms of existence. Soaring through the hollows of scalps, Disintegrating norms far beyond generations, Like a carcass birthing a maggots bay, They wiggly torture doubts in …

DEATH BY THE GODS…

The cocks crowed, cows mowed,  All hell let loose and in a blink of an eye,  Life and death were born. Growth flourished with the first crow, And withered with the last mow.  Such was life for all. And by the gods, it had been from the start of time. Hurt and ache were all …

It was all Over!I could feel it.It was in the desolation of my relish,And the demise of my hope. Hope that I would live,Faith that I would see you again,Yet your evasion of my LOVE…Sent my immutable soul on a six-feet deep craze. A Soul yearning for you,Craving all that you were,It was in the …

STRANGER CONVERSATIONS…

"Do you like being chocked?"  "Did I?" My genius instantly clammed up, As specks of excitement bubbled to the surface, And my lady bits turned tingly. "Do you love being held down?"  "What?" My chocolate nipples fidgeted fiercely, Sprouting from the wilderness, As shivers stole my breath, And my knees wobbled to the ground. "Do …

SHACKLES OF LONELINESS…

The Box felt so small, Like all the barriers were crowding in, Consuming everything in their wake, And crumbling from the end of an ERA. In the corner, she stood, Convicted of hurt, Drizzling with pain, And stinking of FEAR. The shack felt so cluttered, With thoughts bouncing around, And littering doubts through the facade of …

A LOVER’S DEMISE…

"I am so sorry," he said. "I will not do it again," he promised. Yet it all deteriorated. The jabs spoke more, The whacks laughed harder And did he ever stop? "It's all your fault," he cried. "It's all your doing," he accused. Yet he never listened. Imperfect I became, For hatred, he felt And …

Woke up this morning, A zombie smile etched on my face, A heart full of anger, And a jail birded soul, On fire.  Craving… Craving for a life. A life so pure, Sin so rare, And eternity Forever. Yet… Blood filled with sorrow, Stupidity etched so deep, And a margin so wide, Destroyed all hope. …

In the world, She stood, Desolate and frightened. Nowhere to turn, And nowhere to go. Lesser than the mortal she was, Her soul held no objective for the forthcoming events.

Life had always treated her BAD. No family, And no friends, To call her own. Time always stood still, Her luck was wanned out.  And the Universe favoured all but her. Sorrow became her skin, And hunger her muse. Her heart grew old, Her Skin creased all over, And Fate was never found. For her, …
