You love me..

I love you not. Pull these petals off and ponder Why do your promises leave me in fear? A home for me to do the making My voice for you to pack away  My joy for you steal Pleasures you wouldn’t dare deny my sex You love me For my back to do the breaking…

TWO YEARS ON WORDPRESS

And I’m not excited. I wanted to tell the truth because words are easier to find if they are truthful but I can’t. I fear the horrors of my reality may scare you away. I feel you wouldn’t understand, you might even find the monotony that is my life boring, upsetting even. So I’ve shied…

LIEBSTER AWARD

I have been blogging for a little over a year on this site now. This site was significant because it came at a time in my life when I decided I was going to change and do what made my heart beat. Almost a year ago I came across WoeFulToFroFul after she had shaved her head and from…

ZEITZ MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART AFRICA

Initially I had planned to go visit V&A Waterfront in an attempt to lift my spirits and cleanse myself of the disasters of this month. My creativity had plummeted and my zeal for life was depreciating with each minute. I needed a new perspective and this pursuit led me to Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art…

The Last Day I Saw Him

He was good for drinking, jocose conversations between sips of red. Tongue darting out to taste before the lips could touch his glass then erupting into mourns of approval. Amusing to watch just before his rumblings would begin, a telling of stories he would have mulled over all week. All week when I had been…

REFLECTIONS

How is it that I look at you and see a reflection of myself looking back at me? Your insanity, your lies all facing straight at me? I perceive this to be the most complex conundrum, one made to confuse the mind and plunge you into the deepest state of perplexity. Myself? Mirrored by your…

HAPPY NINETEENTH DARLING

Life is a whole lot more colorful through the lenses of a kaleidoscope.  Here’s to another year, another stripe on my rainbow. A million memories, A billion smiles. A thousand more days to come. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME 22/08 HM

BECOMING RADICAL

I remember myself back in the day when I was dying to be liked. I would tame the raging feminist in me so I could get those crumbs guys throw at you to award you for bowing to oppressive thinking. I would talk about equality and they would immediately talk about the bad kind of…

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

After going through years of pretending to be happy I finally found a plethora of activities, things and beings that make me genuinely happy. So here goes my list: Blogging This is the most therapeutic thing ever. My content is messy because I write about anything and everything I feel like and it gives me…

BIG FEARS SMALL WORLD

MY LIST OF FEARS THE DARK  Okay, we all know crazy things happen in the dark. You are minding your own business and getting cosy in that warm bed of yours when all of a sudden you see a diabolical figure floating mid air. You switch on the light after grabbing the bat you keep…

THE ONE JOB I WOULD LOVE TO DO

Blank. I have never viewed myself as the working kind and I’ve only ever worked when it was necessary. I remember  back in school when everyone dreamt of being a lawyer, doctor, unicorn etc I had to try and figure out what demanded the least hours so I could be happy. Save to say I…

THE PERSON I REALLY CARE ABOUT Р30 DAY CHALLENGE 

I am consistency, I am plural. I am my own keeper. Today I’m falling and once again I’m my own embrace. I’m the soft cocoon that catches me when I tremble, when the stones in my path trip me until I can try to step onto them once again.  Yesterday I hurt and it was…
