Nqubeko's Observation


reminds me of this one time in Johannesburg at South Point (Doorfontein) there these two guys were i have revered & feared deeply all my life talking & hassling at and about each other..i just sat there in that chair, obeying, enhancing, embracing and conveying the message of loneliness..i dedicated it all to the first sum of pages i was able to read in the time that i had been allowed and given..it was scary tranquility i had so willingly breathed - exhaling & inhaling i decoded this in my head as was the book i was reading..an autobiography - 'decoded' by Hova himself..the confinements of that small room didn't bother me much even with having taken notice of it's cramped space (freedom) . I was lost..free, oblivious..why could i not share my loneliness with these guys? it was my drug, it's like a drug you know..this loneliness thing. a natural ritalin..i concentrated on my loneliness because i was lonely? never have i resisted such distraction in my life, even with two bickering men adjacent to it..i was conscious, but unconseous at the same damn time..it was peaceful..i was in love with myself at that moment..i cherish such the moment every sensing fibre in my body will never forget..Jozi My Loneliness..i will return for you, and you will forever be mine and me yours..they won't set us apart for what God has put together no man shall take apart..so give me you and i will give you me in return. we are one..one as we shall ever be.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
