Kefentse Sathekge Poems

i love you in the morning.
when you smell like scented rain,
your lips like mint sprouts.
when my arms are around your neck,

The night was quite. Calm was in the air.
I remember I rushed home.
I had to prepare.
The mint sauce.

I cannot wear my pyjamas to work
Nor swim in my shirt and tie.
But there is a cloth for all occasion
I want to put it on

Out of hurting, I had build
Something that resembles the Berlin wall
Now you are here…
I have been reluctant

It is like hot brewed coffee with no milk.
It slithers in between, its warmth ensnares.
Once in you, there is no word to define it.
You try to talk, only gust of air

(to the one I truly love & I grow to love daily)

That is how I feel about you.
You cannot question my love.

You are everywhere
yet I seek.
I silently bow.
Eyelids softly shut,

Daily I seek you
Like the clothes I wear
Unfold my wings
I have been docile too long

I used to smile inside, alone
When I think of chilies and omelette

Do you still remember? I do,

Prior to her womb being invaded
Thoughts of him penetrated, breaking in like a common thief
And she conceived him in mind
And in spirit

A month has gone.
All but memories seem to fade.
She would hold me.
Her affirming presence has

Tramped down, part of
Pathway now.
Fences are down.
Soldiers come in as

should not look upon you with a lustful eye?
Forbidden kisses that fills your womb
Impregnated abruptly by my lips

When one was away
The other had his cow
When he returned
He killed the double agent

The rooibos tea bag you always
Leave in the tea cup
How it would drive me to the wall
If dirty dishes could kill

Just as leaves
are intimately attached
to the little stalks on branches
As much as they are also dependant

Consider my erect pride,
and cast it down.
Let me open up
and crumble like Jericho walls.

I have nothing to tell…

Your womb is infected.
Life in you feels neglected.

You shall know me...

Beyond wedding vows...
The sealing kiss.

The Best Poem Of Kefentse Sathekge

Mint Sprout

i love you in the morning.
when you smell like scented rain,
your lips like mint sprouts.
when my arms are around your neck,
i rest my spirit on your shoulders,
my burdens seem light & i'm at home.

when your eyes are fixed on me...,
like guided missiles on its prey,
and that neatly ordered beauty
mark, that sleeps in your eye
like a tear that will never be...

when your eyes are on me,
i feel loved like that chilli omlé*
on you lips,
the gesture of your smile when
im in your company.
i love you like those dried sweet
the way you melt when your mouth
admits defeat to the temptation.

im no perfect but your love keeps
no records of wrong.

*omlette - omlé
