By Day…By Night…

 

By day,
she casts away
the burdens of her ordeal
through the flow of her ink

By night,
she goes back
to live her nightmare
in the silence of the dark

What My Mama Said To Me…10

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
there comes a time when
you’ll tell your goat
to stop giving its milk for free,

‘cos a neighbour
used to getting free milk
will never purchase his own goat
instead, he’ll milk more to make cheese.

My mama said to me
“Baby, don’t look for others to lift you up,
‘cos you’ll be disappointed.”

strong enough to support others
and you’ll rise up with them.”

his warm touch and engaging smile excite her,

loving him her secret pleasure.

 

Expecting, Pregnant, Couple, Baby

Thoughts of the baby excite them

they think of names for their bundle

conceived in love and pleasure.

 

i doubt it…

you say that you love me,

i doubt it

‘cos your heart

is so barren

that nothing fruitful

but hate grows in there

Poetry card, poems, micro poetry

you say that you love me,

i wonder how

‘cos you treat yourself 

with such self-hatred;

and no one can find love

where hate inhabits
