Premium Member Twilight Descension


Bats fickle genteel soles of twilight, as swart crown abandons an errant moon,
A moon burrowing framing a forest, while Cupid charioteers spark an archway,
Neath a sinking moon, buds blossom, awaken by galloping Cherubs all strewn,
Frogs echoes in a lagoon as...Read More

Africa
A silhouette of pulchritude finest
And fairest of your kind.
You're an apparition from swart clay kneaded;
From head to toe, you're perfectly imperfect,
Why do you envy the sun?

Your head is enveloped in hair tawny,
The cupid that awakens lust
In men and eyes of...Read More

Die reptiel vrou - The reptile woman
Die reptiel vrou
Het my alweer geflous 
Met my gedeel, haarself ontbloot, 
en toe
Die bitter gif gespoeg

Dit vloei uit my bors uit, deur my are
Verander my bloed - haar bloed
Word swart, taai, en koud
Soos haar hart

The reptile woman

We all can fly
With powdered colored wings
Different you and I
But we're of the same being

Is the many colored wings
Fluttering, embracing, holding me
Above this cruel, cruel world

'k kyk neer rivier
wat kronk'lend paaie baan
in dalle vloer
afgemat en steeds geboè
poele plas en blitsend 'kaats
drenkend dans palmiete gras
soos manne kras in kroee
dalk net dromend was
my refleksie in jou oè
Iris geruit as wimpers sluit
was binne-in my hart getoor
en bloedriviere in...Read More

Eks Nie Meer Lus Nie
Swart trane
Donker gees
Gebroke hart
Eensaam siel

My lewe het tot stilstand gekom toe ek jou ontmoet
My lewe het bedoeling gekry toe ek jou ontmoet
My lewe is nou verby as gevolg van jou
My lewe is nou niks as gevolg van jou

Eks ingedoen
Eks gebreek
Eks...Read More

Autumn years of his life
I saw that elderly man this Sunday
He says he travels to my town everyday
In his 80s he appears feeble
His reedy bones are seeable
This old chap is thin as a stick
I find him so polite, I call him a brick
He looks...Read More

Halloweens
though the dark cold castle i do roam.
Terrified to be alone. cobwebs hanging from the corners on the wall.
dirt, dust and rank smells in the hall.
the floor begins to creek my heart beats faster and faster.
i hear high pitched screaming...Read More
