Comments about Effie Yalena Steyn
(i'M In) Lust
I don't believe in love, I decided long ago:
that other hearts were summer heat and mine was winter snow
I despised them for their impudence, oh such a long way to go!
I bet myself another life that I would never feel too
What silly girls and silly boys called 'love', their new-
found companionship displayed in sycophantic spew
of words and promises that would change next week.
I thought myself so strong, compared to them so bloody meek
And in every spare debate said as loud as I could speak
'There is no such thing as love'
don't you get it?
Then one ...
It seems a shame to write for the sake of writing,
when words don't effortlessly flow.
Maybe I will write tomorrow.
Tomorrow is always an alternative
too easy to say, to promise, and yet never grasped so maybe
it is better I write now.
You see, I am not gifted. Pray, m'lady, I would give another,
gift for the gift of the gab,
