»Dear Baby Mama/Hey Baby Daddy«

by Clem Squeeza Bee Mdue, Sep 13, 2016

*Dear Baby Mama* / / Dear Baby Mama please let's have a life with no drama. / I loved you and I still do, I mean you gave me the greatest gift, a child. / Now all we have to do is help her grow. / We don't need to hold hands but we do have to hold her hands. / We failed at love but we can't fail at this…  sign in to read more »


»Funny Feeling«

by Bo Lanier, Jun 5, 2016

Well I've got a FUNNY FEELING / I'm gonna be crying the blues / Tonight because you will not be / Home to hold me tight, I've just / Got a FUNNY FEELING I'm gonna / Be laying here in our big ole bed / All alone waiting, just waiting for / You to phone, I've got this FUNNY / FEELING but it's not really funny…  sign in to read more »


»Power of words«

by Shylet Noma Clint, Nov 6, 2014

When I was but a young girl I just loved opposites, then I didn't know they attract. / Defying the odds and always being the odd one out, now I only find out it's what they call gender. / Female, feminine, phenomenal are words I started understanding when I became a young woman. / Pubic, puberty is not…  sign in to read more »


»Trust is the issue«

by Lerato Jahder Mollomabina, Jun 20, 2014

trust is a commitment glue, / a route to jealousy, / jealousy is lack of trust / a relationship thrives on freedom, / freedom to love. / / to be trusted is a greater feeling than to be loved, / you have to choose in the end / whether to trust someone or not, / but when is the end? / / waiting for the end to…  sign in to read more »


»My life, a song...«

by Kgomotso J Kgopa, Oct 18, 2013

My life is a song, / A music track / Track I'm running the race of life / God my composer / Mixes of scratches, low key registers and noise fluctuations play along but I still keep my beat / Pause, / Angels my backup vocals / Family my drums and bass / Friends my strings, orchestral arrangements / Enemies my…  sign in to read more »


»The blow«

by Yolande Du Plessis, Jun 28, 2013

Shadows embrace / Darkness fills my soul / My black eye contorts objects around / Night fills my vision / As the final blow falls / / Faintly sound surrounds me / Light barely reaches my purple eye / A hand / Retreat / The hand remains / Soft, welcoming / / Standing again / Dark spots remain / But light…  sign in to read more »


»Watch what you say«

by Sakhile Koaho, Oct 11, 2012

Watch what you say around people / because what you say affects me / choose your words carefully fool / because I end up looking like you / / what you feeding people / you messing up my reputation joe! / those small pieces of bad info / paint a perfectly wrong description of me / / so what what you say…  sign in to read more »


»I really hurt him«

by Maureen Direro, Aug 6, 2012

I can't accept it... / My words prove hollow, / I can't forget him... / My memory seems shallow, / He crept into my life and made me happy... / He made my days exceptional, / Gave me a reason to wake up in the morning... / Gave me a reason to sleep at night, / If only he knew, / How much I loved him... / I…  sign in to read more »


»Imagine«

by Mothibe Johannes Mothapo, Aug 2, 2012

Imagine I am yours, / Let me rephrase, / Imagine you are mine; we wine and dine together, / Imagine your thoughts are mine and my heart is yours, / Imagine, you feel what I feel and what you feel is what I have felt, / Imagine the sense of taste resides in me, / Then I am gone, / Gone to the wilds, where…  sign in to read more »


»I had abandoned my pen (The biggest lie)«

by Maureen Direro, Jun 19, 2012

I thought I had abandoned this pen that voices out how I feel / You let go of me during these times, / After I poured out my heart to you / do you know how much does it take for a girl like me to admit that I actually love you? / Just when I had moved on, / just when all surfaces of wound built up when…  sign in to read more »


»Trust eroded«

by Anesa Dindar, Jan 31, 2011

Values forgotten / Principles caved in / Trust eroded / Trust rotted away / / She checks his phone / Scans the contact list / Reads the messages / 1 + 1 makes 3 / / She rummages through his things / Checking every pocket / Inspecting every bill / The mind playing games / / She opens his mail / Scrutinises the…  sign in to read more »


»See my Life«

by Ryan Gordon Penn, Dec 6, 2010

Through eyes blinded by judgements with no basis / See what you want, Allowing no graces / Waiting for me to turn around to sink your knife / You have no idea, Oh! You should see my life / / Pay no respect, You can't even afford a smile / Stubborn ignorance, That's just so your style / Step outside for a…  sign in to read more »


»Old Women's Perfume«

by Laura Arman, Mar 5, 2010

Out of tough skin I battle with my emotion. / Tearing through the layers, of self despising motion. / Brought upon by devils strain, thoughts I can't control. / Perpetrating every bone and rinsing out my soul. / / Whispering like jealousy, tormenting brutal fears. / Calling on anxiety to wipe away the…  sign in to read more »


»Another bet«

by Filiberto Rodriguez, Nov 6, 2009

How deep do you want me to go? / All the time you're talking about this other friend / coveting your things for $50.00. / For what it's worth, you might as well hand it over. / You are not thinking straight. / I gave you a good deal and it's not the deal! / You're actually thinking twice to make another…  sign in to read more »


»Secrets«

by Jamie Lee Plumley, Oct 9, 2009

I actually thought you loved me / You told me that every day / How was I so blind as not to see / That you could do me wrong in such a way / / I gave you my love, my heart, and soul / But yet you just tossed them aside / I flew over oceans on wings I feared most / Just to find the deadly secrets that you…  sign in to read more »


»Let You Go«

by Jamie Lee Plumley, Oct 8, 2009

Your heart is filled with treason / Turning your back on me / You do not have a clear reason / For why our love can't be / / Your laughs have turned to hate / Your smile is now a frown / Anger from you is what I take / No more up just the down / / People say that true love is real / I actually thought that's…  sign in to read more »


»To be tied on her mother's apron strings«

by Happy Towers Mhebheru Mhlongo, Mar 11, 2009

Thought she is a fidus achates / Locking the door of her daughters' / Because she's her only blue eyed girl / On the account of her love she cares. / Might cause a belt from the blue, / Her mom keeps her for love and to grow to grow old, / She said: mom: "Let me enjoy my life without camparing it with…  sign in to read more »


»Discretion«

by Melinda Smith, Feb 24, 2009

(homage to Bob Dylan's "Don't think twice, it's all right") / / In the morning, you said we'd have to forget it. / I thought your repentance did you credit / but our sin felt so good, I couldn't regret it. / Some things we never get to say. / / When, later, you'd bring your wife over and flirt / It felt…  sign in to read more »


»Independent«

by April A., Oct 31, 2008

She's sitting, sitting alone / With brandy and Winston in hands, / Devouring with her mischievous wild glance / Her already coupled-off friends. / "I'm fine" - her red eyes shout loud, / "We see. What the fuck?" - says the crowd. / She sets her lust racing around the hall, / But no one hears this hopeless…  sign in to read more »
