Mishack Mchunu Poems
How Far I Love You
I don’t love you
For the prideful and self centered reasons.
When the sky is blue,
To the slaying storms and all kinds of seasons
In the midst of pain,
To the four ends of the Compass you will hear me cry.
Standing on the rain,
Waiting for a new day and all these tears to dry,
Not for your sexy body that dwell with my lust.
To the depth of your immortal soul I reach,
I adherer to it until it flies out of this dust
World’s Terror could I be satisfied without her and have no pleasure to search?
To all being you are my prime,
A centurion I ...
To My Beloved, For Us!
You opened my eyes to see you,
The evening that was conquering my light to shine
You reversed it and made my sky blue.
The rising sun; with a burning spear I drew a line.
You made me to travel places in my dreams,
The beauty of having you brought destiny to my possession.
You fade not in my eyes but persist like the ocean streams,
The unity of us is fate itself through creation.
