»It Hurts«

by Clem Squeeza Bee Mdue, November 16, 2018

It hurts,
So much that the pain has become too prominent to hide
Too unbearable to even forge a smile

I can literally feel the ruptures resulting from my heart break
I can hear the nerves ripping apart
What remains are ruins of what used to be my heart, a heart that used to love

Why do I easily let in and struggle to let go? Is there a need for me to live when a part of me just died?
I bleed everyday from the veins that once flowed with love. The compliments have stopped because the glow has vanished and been replaced by tears that form a path on my face.

They warned me, yes they did but how was I to know when he lay dormant like a volcano only to rise one day and take pieces of my heart with.

I will never fall in love again, I would rather fall asleep.

»I Can Love Again«

Heaven sent, are you? / I can see the light again, that's all you. / Brought me back from the doldrums / How can I ever repay you? / / Like a doctor treating a patient from war / you dressed my wounds. / Covered my naked soul with all your love / He hurt me, he really did. / You picked up the pieces, like  sign in to read more »


»Why Me?«

My mother's womb warm as it is, I can't wait to get out / To mingle with the world / To join my peers as we explore. / Its time to leave my 1st home now, we cut the umbilical chord as everyone awaits my arrival. / Majestically I arrive only to be greeted by sad faces. / This was not what I was promised.  sign in to read more »
