African Love Story

Love, so simple in all its complexity, Or made complex in its simplicity as we dare not give up pride in fear of rejection, but if we never take the risk, will we ever be able to truly love?

The phrase

"You don't need me", were the words that shrivelled out of his mouth A phrase containing more meaning than the four words it contains His expression came from a place of pain, Pain so vivid, we could not escape the urge to share the burden of his heart His expression came from a place of… Continue reading The phrase

Voice

In her mind, things are less complex, In her mind, all things make sense; The reasons we are so different, the answers to all our problems.   See in her naive mind, the solution to her aching soul is as simple as a single touch; A shoulder to rest her heavy mind on, A soldier,… Continue reading Voice

Descry

Worry and fear fill her head, she has never felt so lone. Weaken by life's events has left her to fend on her own. See, her world has always been different; Birds singing songs of joy, sky beautiful and blue, her? Just content. Content with the idea that everything would be alright, Content hoping to… Continue reading Descry

It

I longed for you for so long, I longed for what I was told you bring. Thought I had you at last, but i was wrong... It pains me to say you are just a fairy tale, A tale little me believed in over and over again. Trapped in confusion, my heart is frail... Listen,… Continue reading It

My ability to… Continue reading Silence

Unlike the ordinary mind, I can't explain my thought process though I love talking, which often equals a complete disaster. To those around me, I have a fun "creative with lots of potential", probably the next… Continue reading ME

Truth

Do what extent am I supposed to be? I often ask myself this question when my world comes crumbling down, which in my "perfect world" it is always. Miss judged and understood by everyone around me, I ask myself if I really want to be understood. Putting these thoughts on paper stimulate tears to run… Continue reading Truth
