Sentimental Gems

there is beauty in feeling

When the night falls

When the night falls, things happen.
That is when,
the hare leaps with joy to eat the peasant’s tender vegetables
That is when,
A shy girl walks freely to meet her lover across the field
And that is when,
An unscrupulous hand comes in and destroys everything!

She had breathed for this moment
since she laid her eyes upon this dress
Now adorning her dazzling form
One piece of white flowing garment
A slit upto almost her waist
Revealing a tan atheletic thigh
The V of her plunging neckline
Inviting eyes to her suple bossom
She’d known he’d love it
And now she hurried
Across the recently harvested field
Towards the banana grove at the end
The moon lending her her glow
The moon smiling secretly
She saw him leaning against a banana trunk
Staring at her mouth agape
It sent warmth through her body
To see the effect she had on him
But how breath taking he looked
A prince, only without a horse.
She ran forward into his arms
An hour later

He first saw her at her uncle’s shop
And he kept coming back for things he didn’t really need
Just to catch a glimpse of this angel
Again and again
He gathered courage and asked
The meeting was set two night’s later
The last day of the harvest
All would be sound asleep
He waited patiently, staring at the moon
Wondering what secrets it held
Then he saw her
Angel white
The enchantress
She smiled
And he wanted her, oh how he wanted her.

They sat on the ground
Cuddling and planning the future
She, laughing at his jokes
Him, admiring the gap In her teeth.
They get up to leave
Promises to see each other again.

Few days later She sits in the shop
It’s a slow afternoon and she daydreams
A missive is delivered
She tears it open in anticipation
‘ Dearest,
It’s with great sadness
That I pen this letter
Remembering we parted in happiness
But that’s about to shatter’
His parents, he said
Was the issue
Tribe, he let on,
Was their issue
Education, he added,
Was their issue.
He was a doctor, the elite
She didn’t have a college certificate.
He is to marry a doctor.
His tribe mate.

A dream deffered.

Deathly Contract

Image result for deathly contract

Dear Death

Do you remember how you gloated

In my face when you claimed my beloved

Recall my pain every morning as I woke

Hoping it’s a dream only to be suckerpunched

I so fear loving and holding

Because you don’t mind snatching

To your cruelty I’ve lost chances

Of a last word, hug, last gift.
I have so little left

My small circle of family and friends that I love with depth

Look at me and see the joy I get at seeing smiles on their faces

Share in my pain when they hurt

Rejoice with me when I celebrate their victorious races.
Here is a deal.

Get some nice clothes and come out here

Tip: the Devil wears Prada.

Your move: Versace maybe?

Go on dates, create a business empire

Join some clubs, make friends

Share your life with them

Do you wish to lose them?
Here is the typed contract.

Sign here………and here…….

When it expires,

We’ll pose the question

Has humanity been installed in you?

If yes,

I win. I get to keep my loved ones.

If no,

You win. I get to understand why you do it.

Random Rhymes #2

It’s not everyday that you fall in love with someone

But it’s quite possible that daily you fall for the same one
It’s a privilege to get to love someone who loves you back
And that’s so much because most people love those that don’t want them and shun those that do
So I don’t take it for granted that I have you
I hate to disappoint you
But a lot of times I’m carried away.
All I need you to do is help me keep on track and not let me stray
Coz if you don’t guilt and regret is the price I pay
It’s a heartful of hurt but every time I get up to try harder I say
I’ll just try again and it will work out some day
It’s coz I love you, I know you deserve first class
And I hope you ain’t fragile as glass
Coz it will take a while for me to mow the grass
It may take forever, it may take a couple of days
It all relies on you wanting to stay
And to help me.

I know when to run

I always know when I’m about to break a heart

Don’t mistake me, I never plan for it
But when they push me too hard I start to fall apart
And it’s true I hate that bit
When I have loved with my all heart
And taking me for granted becomes the new habit

I know when I’m about to break a heart
When they stop treating me like a queen
Coz they feel niko box already so no need for some effort
Hey, I’m queen in or out so to make that mistake don’t be too keen
I know what I deserve so don’t you start thinking of me as an R&R resort-
A luxury that you could do without

It’s then that I will run for the hills
And I won’t walk out quietly
I know how to break a heart with skills
No fury is there like that of a woman scorned, assuredly
So I will leave with my dignity intact while your heart blood spills
It will be a lesson to appreciate what you have wholly.

Love lies bleeding

ɹəqɯəɔəp 2, 2013 ·

Love lies bleeding
Heartbeats away from dying
Wounds raw from slashing
To the finish line dashing
Love lies bleeding
By the roadside begging
Like the proverbial traveller
Robbed of possession
Robbed of dignity
Robbed of pride and ego
Fighting for a breath
Love herein lies bleeding
Life squeezing out
Crying out silently
Pleading with its eyes
Heavy upon the chest
Dragging its body
Willing to live
Strength sapping
Blood dripping
To the ground…


Random rhymes #1

A song of old times
Few words with no rhyme
A question on every soul’s mind
An answer I’m yet to find.

Why’s love so elusive
Give me an answer conclusive
It’s allure hard to resist
Yet heartbreaks scream, desist

One two, try
But some hands will still pry
You hurt and you cry
While your heart bleeds dry

A moment you in the high sky
You convince your heart to fly
Too close to the sun and you fry
Drop harder than before, sigh



Smothered into a sick surrender
Figuring out how to put things back together
The relationships destroyed one sip at a time
By poison that for every reason I couldn’t live without
A coldness has creeped into my heart and on this very occasion we should be sharing together,
I’m penning  missive to you📝

Do you remember when we first met
I, the shy girl
Reluctantly relenting and surrendering to your smooth seduction
Trapped by your first kiss
Never to look back at the pain
Panning to stay numb forever
Living a dream
Atleast that was my plan
For in you I found a new home
A new family and
Learned new skills coz you gave me,
A liquid education
Mixing your flavours with chemical precision
You brought out the woman in me
Confident of my beauty
And bold of statement
While we were holding hands in darkness
Lips and tongues together
Staggering Spadina Senseless
Sex in clubhouse washrooms, dance floors and hostel bunk beds
Passing out on floors and streets
A merry widow of straps and tangled limbs, you made me💃🏽

Engineering my own destruction,

But that, was okay with me.

It’s only your betrayal that has pierced my heart without rhyme or reason
Now I’m just another statistic
Of kids who fell for your witchy charms, Mr Alcohol.

My letter is to let you know that I’m letting you go
To find new friends who will let you do as you wish
Because for me I want another chance at life
I won’t end up dead in a gutter overflowing or my gullet slit in a thicket behind a serial killer’s den
Coz I’m leaving you Mr Alcohol
I can already see the wicked spite in your eyes as you read this
The hateful glare you’re casting towards my image in your mind
The sarcastic smirk on you fat face
You think I won’t make it.
You’ll be surprised, Sir.
