Her Lyrics - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

She writes words from her heart
On black inked bare pages
She writes of love that hurts
Her crumbling walls of defense

A bleak image she paints
Smeared page by page
Her heart compose lyrics
Of high and low notes

She writes of her thoughts
Truths concealed in dotted lines
Behind ghosts that never lived
Of Imagined people and places

The truth is not far from home
These words are her lyrics
Composed from a place of hurt
Poured out of an aching heart

These written words are her soul
An ink flowing in her every vein
Perspired through her every pore
Bleeding through her nails

She writes of a tale of deceit
A paint that taints the heart
She tells of the broken trust
Of dreams cut short
