Purple Curtain Drops

view zoomed
on the jacaranda blooms

breathing the air of home
without a care
as I sit out, on the veranda alone

thinking of her
something about the day
and the season
for some reason
I’m reminded of the scent of her perfume

the sensual care of her womanhood
and it feels real enough that I have a chill in my bone

so quickly I descend from the horny layer
that is, the stratum of my daydream

with but one question on my mind still

do I regret that she’s gone or am I happier on my own?

Portia Galactica

my heart was open to a change of mind
but as things stood I just had to leave her behind

and since pleasure is the standard of choice
I had to enjoy mine, hard as it was to resist our electric chemistry…

and the sweet seduction of her voice
that upon auditory perception drew me to her
with the natural affinity of sexual chemotaxis

but even a fraction contains infinity
so although I felt incomplete without her
I still had to find my forever

I had to keep moving to my tune
trying to make sense of the universe…

this mysterious perpetuum mobile

Why does it hurt so Bad?

I thought I was over you
I thought I have let you go
I thought I have bended the ties that were linking me to you
But Why does it hurt so Bad everytime i see you with another girl, everytime i think of you i will just break down in tears

I can still feel your hands as you touch me, your breath as you breathe against my face
I can still feel your lips against mine
I can still hear your voice say ”l love you ”, those butterflies when you looked into my eyes

Why does it hurt so Bad
I thought letting go, walking away, bending the ties or getting you out of my mind would be easy but it’s so difficult it’s like you trapped inside of me

Am i really a born free?

Lives were sacrificed
Blood was shed
Families were torn apart
Principles and values were broken
Everyone was striving for freedom, independance and equality

And today am called a bornfree

Because I was born after the apartheid
Because i now have my own rights and can have a say in politics
Because i can attend the same school with others without being judged by the content of my skin color

But i often ask mmyself this question “am i really a bornfree “?
Because i still exprience abuse, xenophobic attacks, neglect, a dreadful disease called HIV/AIDS
