Between Our Hearts. - Poem by Lihle Shezi

Between the fringes of our
heart beats exist a sky wearing
reading glasses.
A lamp burning our heredity
as oil.
In this presence, God is a past-tense.
A loophole between our spheres,
a reality you call a son
and an illusion i call a father.
From an old tale a hungry child
emerges holding my face.
Life is only a preface of a harlot.
I am her son, with many fathers.
I even father my own.
Alphos, a man foreordained
to be my bearer; may the Lord
grant him more days to see
me fall as autumn
to his wealthy heart, rich with
loving kindness.
Thank you soo much!

All those morning stars
never thought of a black child
who will shine as gold.
Thank you soo much.
I am a carbon copy of your
former self.
A slave for love and warm hugs,
that you share outside
from seing eyes.
My heart sees all your love.
Thank you soo much.
