»The Ephemeral of Life«

by Benjamin Chikezie, May 17, 2019

Life is a long but narrow route / All travellers a day must cross / Again a short thinned passage / All welfares’ must trample upon / The way well made travellers match. / / Sycophant men all in emptiness / The world is a long passage they wane / And looking to and fro in matching / Were we all shall part… read more »


»Shall thou wilth remember«

by Benjamin Chikezie, May 17, 2019

Shall thou willfully remember / Those blessed and entwined moments / With pairs of hands across over the leg / Thoughtlessness of love invaders / With bored wrinkles on lips / Passing warmness In between. / Thou who growth in thy thorns / Who wallows in thy own very shadow / Once ever in history shall bend… read more »

So many times get under pressure / So many times been keeping myself / So many times been keeping it as a treasure / So many times no one knows what I felt / / So many times I silently scream / So many times tears flowing like a stream / So many times I struggled to the top / So many times I want to give… read more »

»Waiting«

by Lungile KaDlamini, Feb 28, 2019

when in my sleep, you appear / dressed in purity my heart touched not / leaning on closure you deprived me of / stepping on the love I generously gave you / sipping on a cup of tears I shed waiting for you / pieces of my piece; crumbling in your hands / joy, oh joy; scattered into the air / carried into… read more »


»Peace«

by Albara Almerf, Feb 3, 2019

Wasn’t it peaceful when there were no guns but love. / Now behind every love there is a hidden gun under or above, / Finding the peace is useless when its the hearts that needs the grease. / Stop judging me its the love that you need to release, / Now is that the gun who needs the cease or the gunsmith… read more »


»Alive but not together«

by Albara Almerf, Jan 30, 2019

She left he left, / Memories that stayed. / Still makes the heart feel betrayed, / Ones heart was theft. / True love turned into torture, / While the other one focused on the future. / Memories that remained alive, / Everyday teases that they’re still alike. / Each one is in a different weather, / Still… read more »


»If words could make wishes come true«

by Albara Almerf, Jan 30, 2019

If words could make wishes come true, / That lass beneath the bridge wouldn’t be too blue. / Waiting every day sluggishly watching them decay, / Northern lights nigh is where you find me pray. / But only if words could make wishes come true, / My endless love for you is not an issue. / But only if you… read more »

I know, I want to make you mine forever. / I know, Waking up next to you temporarily tortures. / I know, Walking with your hand in mine is limited. / / Saying I love you is our daily food. / Are you really mine though? / I’m starving / The craving opportunity to be each other presence. / The butterflies at… read more »
