My one and only,
Always there when I’m lonely,
Plain and simple,
Tho has the power to move mountains,
But gentle to the touch,
For many its comforting,
While others not so much,
I give all my love to you,
For that day,
When I stray,
You will put me in my place,
With all your beauty and grace,
I cannot face,
The day you take my life away.
My one and only,
I am clueless as to why you left me,
Please explain, is it me, or our love gone flat,
I thought I had gave you my all,
Maybe not or you just hated my flaws,
I am crumbled, fill of emptiness, full of fears,
We’ve been together ten plus years,
All you can say was I am sorry,
All you did was made me worry,
So therefore, there maybe isn’t any chance,
For us to rekindle,
Please tell me in advance
As to why you left me,
If no real answers has been made,
I guess, I’ll move on,
And I will set you free.
Every time I see you,
I don’t know what to do,
I find it hard to look at you,
But deep inside I really like,
I know that you don’t like me,
But please dear,
Allow me to Love you secretly!
Awoken in the night,
from dispirit dreams.
Reveals a memory,
wrung from deep within.
Of distant voices,
chattering words of every kind.
Washed ashore as moon and earth align.
Until the spinning of a silver thread.
Displays the poet’s envy of a song.
Unwilling celebrant at altar high,
Calls upon creator’s praise.
In un-polished lines and words,
plucked from mind and soul,
and chiselled with uncertainty.
Then made to stand and pirouette
then made to fade.
How do I let you know what I feel about you,
You will never know the way I think of you,
My day starts with the thought of you and ends dreaming of you,
You are the one who can make me happy,
You have the magic to bring life to me,
Just a look from you changes the world around me,
Wish I could tell you.
You entered my life like a smooth storm,
Planning to take its course into deeper depths,
I couldn’t stop.
The touch of you makes thousand watts charged within me,
Wish I could show you how I feel,
Your breath intoxicates me to have you,
The look in our eyes vapourises the very existence of me,
When I am with you, I see nothing other than you,
I just love being with you,
I want to live every moment with you,
Wish this moment of thinking of you doesn’t slip away.
Dying to be with you,
Only you can bring life,
Into my thirsty soul,
Only you and you can,
Change my pain to heaven,
Hold my hand to,
Feel the love for you.
Let go the forbidden thoughts,
Embrace the imaginative mind,
For everlasting joy lies in mere virtuality,
When reality crisscross the ever irrevocable mind.
Walking beside me but not in physical,
Of another realm, one more mental,
Silenced always we hardly speak,
A parasite to him, as he is to me,
I long to connect this again,
This long lost bridge,
To rebuild this home,
Charred, black and singed,
His ideals differ, contradict my own,
From this our magic is fire born,
Tearing and gnashing at skin and bone,
Sinking and leaking into heart and soul,
To leave ideas, seeds to sprout,
Give words to hush an urge to shout,
Walking beside me I feel solace
I could take no bribe, from candle or sun, to kill this,
He is me and we are one,
I am nights glow, he is the sun.
Or maybe this is opposite?
Sometimes it’s easy to forget.
My curiosity forced me to research.
I stand still and I watch,
Questions arise but no answers.
I saw all you did while standing.
Hoping is friend not new lover.
Still stand I watched.
From a distance I observed.
On what’s happening I have no answer.
Under brighter light you stand,
Far away from street I observed,
All things you did I saw,
Until you shifted on other side of street.
Strictly hurt my heart due to curiosity,
Still stand I observed,
Until you went home and he goes.
Nothing to say it’s life.
By Mabirimisa Takalani
The sun out of sight,
The stars twinkle in the night,
The moon shining bright,
Emitting a fabulous silver light,
My knight in shining armor coming out of the blue,
He slayed the mighty dragon now my dreams have come true!
He’ll plant a kiss on my lips and wake me from this sleep,
He’ll ask my hand in marriage as he sweeps me off my feet.
I wake up from my trans and am disappointed by what I see.
That my fairytale ending was never meant to be.
Instead of a knight is a great big beast,
With a furry body, deadly claws and razor sharp teeth!
Despite his hideous face, he has a heart truly kind,
But seeing the outside before in makes you completely and utterly blind.
Day after day, my love grew stronger,
Until suddenly I burst, I couldn’t take it any longer.
I kissed him, and kissed him as hard as I dared.
And he kissed me right back knowing the love that we shared.
I knew he would love me, because after that passionate kiss,
He became human again, with the softest of lips.
He’d always protect me and never let me fall,
I guess I got the happily ever after that I wanted after all!
She is one in a Billion,
Her voice is sweet as a koel bird,
She is cool and calm like a pleasant morning breeze,
Bright like a full moon,
Lovely like a Doll,
And innocent like a child,
Fortunately, she is my sister,
My beloved Sister.
