AN ODE TO MOCK KINGS IN GROANS

There are birds who visit …in blessful transit There are cool airs …which bless our flopped fairs …only to pass us on to brutal bottled beers There are suns …whose warmth we worship …but their steps never sync ours …so we’re always left behind Think of these …really deeply II Cherish the times recorded in […]

FROST

It started like serene air …in my sunlight You, me attending …you me loving …you, me feeding …you, me caressing …you, me cuddling …you, me kissing …you, me tendering …you, me calling And my vice versaring Then it turned from mild to cold winds You, me neglecting …you, me annoying …you me forgetting …you, leaving […]

KUTUGYE NONSENSE

You You rock which shock my mocks You You bone which stone and drone …my emotions …into public places You You fork which locks and blocks …my defenses …into helplessness How? How could you make me so bow? You prick! II You tickled my trust …to tremble in tearing You woke my warmth …to wickedly […]

TELL ME WHAT I NEED TO KNOW

Tell me Tell me what I need to know Break the ice of secrecy which burns my heart’s core Please tell me II I can’t tell you I saw you lovingly kissing her lips I can’t tell you I saw how you happily unzipped her zips I can’t tell you I saw you skillfully unstrapping […]

I WAS WRONG

I was wrong I was wrong to try to tear this mud house Into a palace of comfort For a future I knew nothing of II I was wrong I was wrong to move you to the best place I thought possible Knowing not I was pushing you into a dangerous dungeon III I was […]

ROUGH

Are you a meteorologist of femininity Reading through its seasons to pick? Are you a weather so changing a blue Combing through skies to lick? Are you a fire, burning through seasons to kill? You definitely must be a chameleon, reflective of every passing colour! II You picked me up like sunny season Only to […]

WHAT AM I?

I sit in comfort on my bed With head carrying fires of hell What could I possibly be to you? A fling in a sling on a swing? II I think with my heart Which beats like bass in a loose speaker I hurt like a bird with broken wings I can fly to no […]

A FRUIT IN HIS FRUIT SALAD

His ladle is busy Stirring them together Seeking harmony where hardness reigns Don’t they hurt? His arms? II I am a watermelon I see some mango And oh! There is an orange And ah there lies some banana All shedding their juices Hoping for a common ground Look at how that apple struggles to blend […]

WHIPPED TO SENSES

I was the happy mat Glad to be stepped on Honoured to be lied on And like the lifeless Where legs kicked Was my happy home II Even when my seams strapped I waited to be stepped on Refusing to rise Acknowledging no horror eyes That mirrored my plight And pleading mouths Who sang my […]

I KILLED YOU

I killed you In my dreams When your flaws burnt bright And I lost my way in fears of screams II I killed you in my creams When your texture dried And my skin lost all moisture As I, all the seas of tears cried III I killed you in my dims When your light […]

ODE TO A KING DEPOSED

I stand in your palace Where your former stool sits with open arms And your crown hungs Yearning for the touch of your head II Stools for your elders lay bare Knowing not when nominated buttocks Will clear their dust And make them again shine III The prayer ground stands still Like a river in […]

QUEER RIDE

She will let it slide And nurse her pride For she has nothing to hide You took her on a backstabbing ride Calling her your bride Thinking you will gain her breath guide And she will never know you lied And be the chick at the side You, whose belly holds all sea tides As […]

THIS FLIBBERTIGIBBET

We met as a set Fitting halves that chanced to jet Fluttering hearts that attracted many a bet And in between, no room to let Bad winds and whispers did feel their fret Which they threw like a ball freed fresh from the net Sad that I am now his flibbertigibbet II If anyone had given […]

THE UNKNOWING LOVER

My thoughts set for you a giant screen Since your cloak stole an engine piece of me As you passed my route and looked not my way II Oh how naughty and mean Your cloak seemed, for having hands to tear And no mouth to prompt its owner III You back did pull its charming tongue […]

WITHOUT YOU

I Will Let you go Like a child Leaving her beautiful balloon For the sky 2 I  Will  Leave your hand Like a gallant Leaving the battlefield Undefeated, although sand Is my only clothing 3 There is no point Fighting passions No point, fighting love When its attraction point can murder 4 With this back […]

Mama Why?

On the eve of Christmas, Mama pushed me out of the house In the cold Never to come back again. That dawn, When all and sundry was asleep Mama opened the door, The door of no return For me to depart. When I was being cheated, And I thought mum could help She drove me […]

I’m not in Love

I read love stories I sing love songs I talk about love But I’m not in love. We’ve been friends for long I know you want more than that You have shown me to your parents But I’m still not in love. Everyone thinks we are a perfect match They all say we should get […]

WHEN IT GETS THE HEART

She, watches and walks away Having nothing to say Bowing her head in shame Dreading love’s name II She, refuses to wipe her tears Because they are flowing to show her fears She hears many mouths say fie She wants to die III Because love’s ride Made her hide And her trust tuned to tides […]

FOREVER A REMINDER

Conscience stricken, Defeatism controlled I thought I saw your contrition My desolation was the attraction The wind in you embraced my storm And exploded, scattering lightning Which blinded and unblinded Like a shellfish conquered, My shell was left ashore Waiting for a picker to pick Either to grind, play with or love Luckily, an adorable […]

ORDAINED APART; AN EXCERPT

I hid it all from many eyes

Though many noses sniffed

And gave it a chase,

I waited patiently for the chosen

A MOUTHLESS HEART

  I had a brain without watchful eyes I had a heart without an expressive mouth I had a head filled with meat and coloured water You came Gave eyes to my brains, A good mouth to my heart And filled my head with thoughts Who would’ve ever known That your about-turn Could turn your […]

HEARTBREAK

‘I love you’ Me she told And I promised not to leave her hold All cowardly thoughts she made bold And my nights were never cold I thanked God for stumbling on Gold I thought we be until old Until the Lord God our hands hold But today behold Tears that can’t be controlled Because […]

TRANSIENTA

I am that morning sun That refreshes and enhances the skin And paves way for the heat. I am that bright moon That lights your path through the darkness Only to leave to the unknown when morning comes. I am that star That leads you to your destination when you miss your way Only to […]
