»Virgin heart«

by Sbulelo Sbonelo Mahlangu, October 18, 2016

Between those cracks of stone,
Lies what was a heart.
With those tears to wipe its existence!
That river will never be filled!
Those pieces will never again meet!
That heart...
Will never be at peace...

»I, Benevolent.«

…The earth still sees beauty in what kills it, / And those wicked priests, I pray for them! / There were others who cried the same tears, / Begged more from empty eyes… / The earth still sees beauty in what kills it. / ‘Jump, jump!’ / Their voices throbbed as the drums of war, / So grand a song  sign in to read more »


»Written Apologies«

From bitter scented roses to that heart, my heart. / In which flows unreturned love / And to my love... / My heart be her heart as sorrow weeps by me. / To you, my love. / From those petals that bleed from their keeper's embrace, / From a heart drowning in its held love / To my love. / From those eyes  sign in to read more »


»The Accident«

In that midst, I see death / In that sight it's eyeing me... / I'm not dead, / And that's what frightens me / Few more seconds / And that would've been me / Them, us; it would've been me! / Just a few more secs. / He would've been dead / But he's not, / And that's what make him mad / Just a few more secs  sign in to read more »
