THE CONQUEROR’S HEART

heart conquer.jpg

If only I was
courageous
bold and
could rewind
the hand of time,
now, you have someone
it seems serious,
what can I do?
how do I salvage this?
how can I let go?
you are my obsession
you are my fantasy
you are my imagination
you are my reality
for your sake
i will wrestle
and conquer my fear,
I will bind
perseverance
to my heart
and patience to my soul.
the universe
will feel my pain
and heart beats
fill its ears,
conspiring in my favour,
And you,
whom I most cherished
will be mine.

MYSTERY OF AFFECTION

MYSTERY OF AFFECTIONMYSTERY OF AFF

Why do I feel this way
whenever I see you?
Why do I stare
at your picture?
Is my life
dependent on it?
yet am not tired.
what makes you
so irresistible?
what is this attraction?
Is it not stronger
than the relationship
between a metal and a magnet?
what makes you
different in the
midst of so many?
why does my heart
shudder like a leaf
before the wind
each time I try
to express myself?
Why do I miss you
like the sun flower
misses the sun
in the peak of winter?
these emotions are deep
the questions have
no answers
because they
are the mystery
of my affection

THE REFUGEES: HOME NO LONGER HOME

Home,
a place of hope
and a sense of security,
a place people live
and not just exist,
a place pessimism flee
in the face of optimism,
can a home be home
without this comfort?
no wonder they fled
and against all odds
confronted the desert
and its predators,
reaching the
Mediterranean Sea,
yes, the Mediterranean,
they saw the tides
and turbulence,
with an inadequate Vessel
and with human sharks aboard,
they braced and put on
their armour of courage.
as they sailed,
the refugees,
yes from various countries
overwhelmed by the punches
from the Mediterranean sea,
perhaps they screamed,
prayed and cried,
but were not heard
as the echo from their voices
was swallowed by the
strength of the sea,
and could not fill
the vacuum in
the Mediterranean,
the refugees were taken,
vanished in the Mediterranean,
because home was no longer home.
