»Legacy for my unborn child«

by Anonymous, Jun 9, 2017

You will not see my name in history books, / Nor will a statue be erected in my image. / / No road will be written in my name, / My home will not be an attraction for Tourists. / / My contribution will go unrecognized, / And my existence will befriend my flesh. / / I have endured hatred and disbelief, / To… read more »

Love is a cliché / only when done wrong. / A stage set right plays out / the best act of love. / / My love for you is tattooed / in my heart and etched in my brain. / I thirst for your love like a Vampire / thirsts for human blood. / / In your absence, I miss you but / I look in to the skies as they try… read more »

»Love, thou art not fair!«

by Choene Alley Semenya, May 30, 2017

When my heart was softened and defeated with charm, / From soul to crown, overwhelmed, love bleeding disarm, / Whilst the besotted - My soul, was falling for lies / That the moment had come, and came to suffice; / Could love verily do to me, what I so evermore feared? / Lure me head over hills only to… read more »

I took an oath! I've declared this with a life of mine, / Would thou doest the same verily unto me? / And would thine life sacrifice so I contented be, / Because we've sharèd love, a thimbleful of red wine? / I panic, my sweet, when my mind dares to think / If thy heart would love me still, when I am… read more »

Stars / Its beginning is magnificent / Birthed in space / Within a colorful cloud of gas and dust / Called a nebula / / After its birth / It begins to burn / Burning furiously in a ball of hydrogen / Illuminating our skies / In the day / And more beautifully / In the night / / As it nears its end / It refuses… read more »

»On Marrying your Best friend«

by Dorinka Nel, Apr 7, 2017

The mind could never imagine / How much the heart could love / When soul meets soul and find in them their soulmate / That feeling that cannot be described in a book, / or written in scientific terms... / For it is only written on the hearts of lovers and / only they will know the chemistry thereof.… read more »

»Street Seance«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Feb 20, 2017

The gun shot sound / echoes through out the / whole street. 2 am / massacres are a common / site, the body slowly falling / on the tarred road. / / A black grave temporarily placed / for the dead life. Last deep / breathes as the soul takes flight, / the restless soul roams the street / seeking for… read more »
