Frozen Generasity - Poem by Lehlohonolo Selai

The moments we shared
The memories we shared
The mentality we so owned
Were all the fruits our friendship beard

We smiled long before crocodiles
We cuddled up like chameleons
We shared those tears of agony,
We knew each other insight out

Your generosity lived to be known
Long before hate conquered love,
Long before pride claimed victory over your love
Yes, that which once made your heart elastic

The misery thereof I live to endure
Since blur became your colour of love,
Since cold became your heart,
Since your generosity froze

A million lies you pinned to my thick skin
Hoping to frame my confidence
Like you do all your pics
You took me for a fool while you were the greatest

Putting me on voicemail
Is a habit so brand new
Denying me a shoulder to weep on
Is a key you use to lock me out
Out of your frozen heart

I survived a lot before
You were there as a witness
Now your foolishness has blocked your vision
Of the strength I so have,
Strength to survive you frozen generosity

I thought you were smart
But that was too much the benefit of the doubt
I Searched your heart
But that was too much a waist of my time
For what's there to find in a cold island
If not lumps of cold ice

I thought once I new you
But time proved the opposite
Yes, time changes everything
But never did I expect it to be your heart
Or swift your generosity to the arctic

The memories we shared
Are utterly bitter to my taste buds
The moments we shared died
In that storm which froze your heart.
