»Exposed«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Sep 24, 2018

The very existence of my being lays dormant / as I look at my present through my past. I / visualize the images of my past failures / in my mind. / / With every fiber of my being, I ache and long / for the truth I so dearly deserve. My reflection / seen through a thousand shattered pieces of a mirror… read more »


»I Question«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Sep 24, 2018

Dreams I dearly chase / perish right in from of my / eyes. Thoughts that enrich / my mind are poor and are never / on pen and paper. Unfortunately / procrastination has full control of me. / Exorcism of the spirit and the demon / on my mind. / / Do my words flow so sweet / and gentle in ones soul that is… read more »


»Mind Caliber: Heartbreak«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Sep 24, 2018

Locked and Loaded. / / You came along, we laughed, we kissed / and we cried together. We danced, we touched / and made love to each other. / / You made me cum. And we made each other / pretend that we are both in love. Maybe that / could have been the dilemma. You left me and / took my heart as well. I… read more »


»Monsters Under My Bed!«

by Aiswarya Mohan, Sep 20, 2018

There are monsters under my bed, / I don’t believe they are fake, / As I know their pain as I know mine! / / There are monsters under my bed, / And they are very, very real! / / There is a monster of Love there, / A monster of Lust! / May be a monster of Hatred, / A little one of Greed, Jealousy and / A… read more »


»I will always remember«

by Jamal Abboud, Aug 24, 2018

I will always remember, / to persuade myself to forget, / something of random regret, / for ancient images still linger. / / Distilled from dreams of days, / When I was silent and younger, / creeping dearly to be a stranger, / Thinking I decided novel ways, / / Images those meddle duly in vain, / To bring… read more »


»When you Whisper«

by Jamal Abboud, Aug 24, 2018

The word, the same word you often whisper, / Takes me where sweet dreams murmur, / Analyzed all in the heart, I eagerly listen, / And thoughts of pleasant days never lessen, / And pulses of warm sighs in mind glisten, / Swifter than passionate stormy guesses, / Haunted by the joy the heart never misses,… read more »


»I AM THE CEO OF MY LIFE«

by TSHEPHO MANALA, Aug 20, 2018

I am me! / yes I am. / The owner of my life, / The driver of my life, / The achiever of my goals. / / Yes I am me! / Because am fix, / but I grow, / grow with passion, / the passion of success. / / Yes I am me! / Because I have the right, / the right to retrench and recruit; / Because I own. / Yes I own my life… read more »

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Jul 12, 2018

Autumn leaves are beautiful. / Autumn leaves are intriguing. / Autumn leaves are amazing when they / show no sign of life and they change color. / Autumn leaves tend to be a handful if you do not maintain / the ground you walk on. / Autumn leaves blanket the ground to remind us about / the tragedy of… read more »

Life is Simple. / Thoughts of negativity constantly / clouding the brain. Change of scenery / changes the energies from within. / Once negative thoughts are broken / down and transformed by positive thoughts, / golden thoughts are created, positive energy is / true alchemy. Time alters all reactions… read more »
