»Intelligence is addictive«

by Mpendulo Mngomezulu, July 30, 2009

Masculine intellect with perfected religion
due to ignorance,
the destruction of feminine audio and vision.
Within himself he vacuumed mental articulation
she herself dwells,
upon the virtue of co-existence with conviction.

Echoes of love and loyalty,
imprisoned with no escape.
Voluntary amnesia substitutes betrayal,
a uni-method for the pain she can't take.
Intelligence is addictive!

Multi-relations of lascivious intimacy,
multitudes of satisfaction,
proving his pathetic voids of inadequacy.

Development of acumen acquired
with analysis of gestures.
She opposes brutal honesty,
consciously submitting to inventing contradicting procedures.

He has no mercy and
initiative of change.
He is a professor of a rested conscience.
He is unfaithful, yet she never leaves,
because: intelligence is addictive!
