Bubble of Illusion

Still bitten by the truth when I attempt to awaken my fantasies of what could have been. Still shaken by the betrayal, the minute you become the one I speak so well of. My mind would shape you into perfection. Heal all your insecurities. Build anew, your trust, grant you, to fill the space, in between. My mind could whisper sweet nothings to your ears, so you could listen to me, attentively. I'd bathe you in my love, lotion you with purpose, all intended for us to be. You belonging to me, would not have been, just a dream. 20 May 2022

Sun-kissed

The sun kissed her despite what overcame her, under the moon.

Life On Earth

Is it too late to ask to be unbirthed?
Born into a world of greed, selfishness and fame
brings me no honour as I am without any yet 
need to have in order to live
Unnecessary pressure
Can my mother unbirth me, please?
Am I here to be a doorknob, welcome mat 
or shoulders to cry on? 
Shoulders, yes, the more the merrier right?
Drowning whilst having to breathe another day
caught between their misconceptions,
perceptions and perspectives 
none of it brings me closer to hope
Hope for my own validations,
ambitions or identification 
of my own sexuality 
Like I don't have my own issues?!
Excuse me if I adult cry
Every other time
Excuse me if I have to lash out
Sometimes you need to leave me out!
Get out!
Somebody, help before I pray to be
Unbirthed alive

Ruined

A dish full of vanilla flavoured ice-cream welcomed her sighs in the afternoon, to calm the storm embedded within. Bubbles in a glass stare in despair, as strawberries float, while the mess in her life, unfolds. River down, you tears. Canceled are plans to review televised scenes, for plagued are the thoughts of today. The mobile phone vibrates for attention, the kettle calls upon final decisions, to help sink in the sin with tea or burn the skin off the revolting memories. The tongue is too tied to scream out the lies, body stiff and still, unreachable are the blinds. The room darkens in time, as the day calls for the night, a question quivers, of how will she even sleep tonight...

Brave And Broken

I've travelled aimlessly 
Found myself lost to the streets
My heart screams for survival
I'm further from victory 
as I drown in my own tears. 

Love gave me promises
To have and to hold
Torn and tainted was trust 
Air shortened of breaths 
I'm a friend to defeat. 

Guide me to righteousness
I'm clueless for aim
Uncover my shame
Clothe my innocence 
I live to learn again. 

Cater to my brokenness
I thirst for better days
Water me down to safety
Hold still to my bit of strength 
I need a second chance.

Bitter

How foolish 
A woman is
To place trust on men 
not deserving
Unreciprocated love 
is never truelly worth it 
It leaves one numb
Dampened and dumb 
Lost and never to be found
Torn in disbelief, deceit,
Regrets and revenge 
Damned to pick up
from who you once were
The pieces of self-esteem 
You yet to piece together 
To mend yourself again
Find yourself again 
Energy exhausted
Woman 
let them be 
Fooled are they
They never stay 
Yet you don't 
bother to learn
As you bleed 
and seek another 
anyway

A Time For Love

Forget not to plant your love in my heart like the words that align when you speak. Convince me of the softest touch, embrace my troubles of past relationships. Revive my thoughts of you, for heartaches rent free within me. Detail me truths for truths, broken hearts freelance as lie detectors. Assure me in trust, I'll swim to your love that runs deep. Tell me, where does your mind go when conversations flow? Do you pillow talk with the soul? Do walks in the beach entice you? Allow me to teach you, a thing or two. Care to lecture me on faults, not neglecting your own. Bear in mind, I'm still human, in this life, I'm here to learn. 22 June 2022

Open the Floodgates

Locked up in stares
Silence is the teacher
Spread in bed
Time should forgive us 

You caress my troubles 
An invitation to my pleasures 
You awaken my senses 
Despite my inner seizures  

Your thrusts pound on the exterior
Body gestures for improvement
Attentive but less spoken 
You deliver to my inner 

My sounds, your melody
Your touch, my symphony 
Hands where they should be 
Lips need not speak 

Time has forgiven us
You've unleashed the beast

An Ode To The Black Widow

An ode
to the Black Widow,
Oh mercy to your soul.
Walls heightened from reach,
I judge you not for your choice. 

Your strength is commendable,
fear rests upon your enemies. 
Like thunder you strike, 
never the same place, twice. 

She is tough as nails,
her heart as cold as stone,
doubtful to companionship
Love is the most unknown. 

Lord grant her peace 
for she lives off pain.
Rest her mind to the least,
before she becomes prey.

Mercy

Lost.
searching for a love
to call my own 
But pain still befriends me 

Shattered.
Fresh wounds still bleed
A sworn enemy to darkness 
I beg the light to swallow me 

Breathing. 
Beyond my brokenness
Praying for forgiveness 
Healing made promises 

Hopeful.
Better days have come
Mercy smiled from above
I think I found the One.
