Enter Title Here

Love is gone

Like autumn’s visit to a tree

Feelings ring through like a gong

on racers’ heel

Charred words

Rip off my smouldering tongue

As a leaf off a coal

Needless to say

the world has moved on

since madiba’s home call

Being Single again

Don’t get me started:

You know how insecure

I am in your arms

How lonely I become

In your presence

How far I go

At your touch

How I glow

By your side in the dark

How I need a redemption

From your addiction

How I need a space

Not scented with your smell

A food not mixed with your sweat

A life outside of your senses

An ‘us’ spelled without a ‘u’!

Heartbeat

My Heartbeat

Ours was a life

A fleeting dream

A muffled scream

A doused fire

But our times

Were pure pleasure

A dream to relish

A bite to munch

A tune to hum

You are a memory

To keep and share

You are a song

To learn and teach

You are a vision

To see and show

You are a love lost

A battle drawn

A dark recess

But, a part of me still
