Treasure Island

Goodenough Sakhile Dlamini

(08 December 1992 / KwaZulu Natal, Pinetown)

If only I knew...

Wrong impression
Killed the affection
Fade the passion
Grabs painful in conscious

In a zone anywhere everywhere no love
Come along like lyrics and a beat
But only in a good singer
Destruction wasn't a good lover
Melting volcanoes hot lava
Senses deliberately pretend
Pretend nothing to felt for
For as many as much still no love

Listen to the said stories
Watching tears falls as they pour pouring
telling you the heartbleeds
Bleeds the black blood beneath the beauty
Caring nothing but the smile over tears
Tear all the last memories and store
the beginning of new life
Life is what is differ from death
Wiping your tears not just to make look
you looks like you aren’t crying
Just to make you strong to face the reality

Your eyes never hold threads and grudges
But only love that mankind can Imagine
Sitting in the sun life good isn't short
Wind blow with sand right through your eyes
Never to see what was passing
While busy wiping eyes

I had that caring and courage
to make away forward
But only to find out that wasn't true
Love, tears, sadness, mystery,
My sympathy was being played
Bunches of us who have been played
If only I knew
I wasn’t going to fall for a love monster

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
