fate

Forever In Love With The Soul-Mate

I found my soul in hers and that face, I saw,
Some full-day beauty of the mother-in-law
Herself from her light is firing glory;
Body and shadow, and heart, from Mamelodi,
I find my feet and hers, the same walk and track
On fate pathway, and such, can I hold it back?
Such things are there in stone, carved and sealed
Once but in time; one day to be revealed.
Such means our hearts and parents hearts
Pulsed to some centre meeting than depart
From day today where I, the open door,
Of life and death, reached to, unstrutted floor,
Of me and her. May angels sweep the way
And love of God unshade my days, unshade her days!

Karma Comedian

I use to laugh at ironic things
No punishment for the bad deeds
The Bible says that good 10 fold 
The universe returns to us in gold 
That fairytales and nursery rhymes 
Exist to scare and keep us in line
But on this day fate stepped in 
And karma it seems is a comedian 
A lesson weaved throughout every line
Carefully crafted as a warning sign
It was a day like any other 
As usual jumped in the shower 
Quickly washed and rinsed my hair
Noticed too late that it was NAIR!
Every luscious lock and strand
Fell out completely in my hand
What seems like a sick joke being played
Or demented parts a malicious prank
A plot unfolded my part the lead
The lines straight from a horror scene 
Like laws of nature or earths gravity 
The rules we bend to suit our need
Like a boomerang’s invisible path 
It seems to follow when it comes back 
Even the ocean and it’s changing tides
Needs the moon’s persuasive side
We are the keepers of what we seek
And what we sow we indeed will reap
The nightmare that we fear the most
Comes back to haunt us like a ghost
Like Peter Pan and Captain Hook
Just a good story in a children’s book
what if the earth gets bored of us
And decides that we are entertainment 
those characters we read as kids
Like Pinocchio or the 3 little pigs 
Sleeping beauty or the ogre Shrek 
You thought was funny as a sketch 
Brought to life would pose a threat 
Although to you this seems far fetched
The truth Ive written has not been stretched 
I hope you read this and know as fact
What you put out there will soon come back

Cry In My Sleep

 

 I Lost My Ability To Cry
I'm Hurting So Much
I Feel Hurt
I Feel Pain
I Want To Cry
But Theres Not Tears
Theres No Emotions
Hold Me Please


Because I Can't Feel My Arms
I Can't Feel My Legs Anymore
I Feel Like Crying
But I'm Dying In My Sleep
Waking Up With Dried Up Eyes
I Don't Remember Crying
I Don't Remember Sleeping
Chill Runs Through On My Skin


Crying Out In Pain
I Wish I Could Cry
For My Body Can't Take It Anymore
Is This What It Feels Like
Why Must I Feel So Cold
Why Must I Feel So Emotionless
Pieces Of My Heart
Tears In Pieces


I Wish Again
I Could Cry
Just Once More
If I Could Hold You
If I Could Hug You
And Tell You One More Thing
I Just Want To Cry
I Want To Cry On Your Shoulder

 

 

Humanity's Fire

Long ago man started a fire,

it was small, tiny, on the brink,

but it kept burning, smoldering,

until it found new sources to grow.

 

It grew slowly, consuming more,

exponentially larger, grander,

man marveled at its creation,

that could destroy so much. 

 

It begins to consume man,

and man begins to fight it,

Frantically, full of panic, 

piling water onto it.

 

But so many men love the fire,

they deny its hand in consuming others,

that it is a myth so others will smother out

their greatest invention that gives them so much

 

power.

 

For those who can direct the fire care not,

whether it consumes an ant or an aunt,

because it gives them control over all,

those who fight it are condemned.

 

The condemned have outgrown the not,

but fire is a mighty foe that has grown vast,

it unlocks now for itself more raw material,

the extinction of many species trivialized. 

 

Mass extinction by fire. 

 

Will the new stewards halt the progress?

Or is too much consumed that now

the smoke and soot will bury them?

Slowly, the condemned become the saviors. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A quick write. It's a bit on the nose but whatever. 

brief glance

He is Walking the street

London before but nowhere to go

A city to hide in but nowhere to be

A quick glance to change my world

Standing in summer the shade

Shadows covering her angelic face

His smile spreads at her elegant grace

She smiles in return it halts his pace

He stumble’s he stops he stammers

His heart sure to burst in fear and desire

His mind screams to walk, No run away

But wait!

His feet reject his minds command,

Carrying him through his fear to her

His brain is frozen, thoughts a jumble

His lips move, asking her name

He is stunned as she replies

Her accent thick and sultry

He speaks a reply words unbidden

She blushes prettily, and apologises

He stop’s stunned why are you sorry? Asks he

heart slows expecting the inevitable rejection,

Can you speak more slowly comes her sultry reply

She haltingly says, My English is not so good

His heart leaps and again his mouth moves

Words spilling out in a yammering mess

He is jabber at her happily, but not realising

Her English is better than his Russian

He is a fool talking to fast brain to slow to realise it

But wait she isn’t walking away, she is smiling

She looks up at him hair resting lightly upon her shoulders

A face Beautiful and luscious

Her face slightly lowered her eyes raised

Slightly obscured but all the more stunning for it

It happens so fast, He forgets to blink

He asks  if she has a number, she does! (yippee).

His hands are shaking, blood pumping

It must be obvious how nervous I he is

Incredibly she doesn’t seem to notice or care

He loves her all the more for it

He steps away promising to call,

She remains with angelic grace

His steps now as light as air,

 

A moment eyes connected

A heartbeat to fall in love

A life time to regret

A wasted opportunity of eternal love

A friendship that will last an age if nothing less

He remembers, she remembers

Irina my little pigeon in denim

Always missed, always wanted

60 Seconds Part 1

Folder: 
Band Lyrics
Verse 1: 60 seconds is all I have/to see this through/60 seconds is a story/that is enough with you and me/Don’t you let me go
Chorus: Even if you’re hurting/know that I’ve got your back/60 seconds is all I have for our story/Help me carry on/Lead me out of darkness
Verse 2: Out into the light/I walk towards/the hesitant you/your memories of me/have become cold/I can see it in your eyes/that I am not the one for your anymore
Bridge: Give me 60 seconds of your time/It is all I need to write this story/In it, are our hot and cold moments/Both of which, you gave me
Last-Chorus: Our last goodbye was bittersweet/It tasted like the tobacco on your lips/’Cause you got me falling for you/Over and Over again/Give me 60 seconds/to write a new ending
Author's Notes/Comments: 

Song response to Kim Sung Gyu's song: "60 Seconds" (A Korean pop song with rock elements). Look up the English subtitles on YouTube.

Heartbeat

Folder: 
Band Lyrics
Verse 1:
With your heartbeat
Aligned with mine’s
Nothing can stop us now
I can feel your heartbeat
whenever we are together
Chorus:
I thought it over
I ask myself:
”Why Did I fall in love with you?”
Your heartbeat beats with mine’s
Hearts entwined, fate’s play
Let us hold onto this memory forever
Verse 2:
This is more than a dream
it’s a dream come true:
the day we met
was a hit and run
I could be in love
and I just don’t know
But you got me singing
these songs of love for you
Bridge:
This is my wonderland
A place where you and I can hide
All I want is a place
where we can be together
Your heartbeat, aligned with mine’s
there’s no stopping us now
our heartbeats as one
won’t you finally seal it with a kiss?
Author's Notes/Comments: 

“Heartbeat” symbolizes when two lovers become one or as literature have people say: “They become joined at their souls” almost like a “soulmate”. This will be a band song for my friends and I to sing to once we get the band started.

Chance pt.2

Folder: 
2017

Maybe it was chance that you were

exactly what I needed you to be.

 

You found me when I was lost

and helped fix me when I was broken.

 

Maybe fate told you to save me from myself.

I can’t say for sure.

 

All I know is that every day with you

I’m glad chance brought us together.

Chance

Folder: 
2017

Some people believe things happen by chance.

I like to think that things happen too perfectly

To only happen by chance.

Someone is pulling the strings.

 

There are a lot of maybes in the world.

Some people call it chance,

Others call it fate.

It might be a combination.

 

Maybe you decided to tell me by chance.

Maybe we fell in love by chance.

Maybe all the things that brought us together

Happened by chance.

 

Maybe.

I like to think that something brought us together

Maybe it was fate.

Maybe we are meant to be.
