Lifeaids - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

Heart wrapped in wire mesh

every motion elicits more bleeding

the bandaids will not do

velvet words will not do

tender brushes with flesh, will not do

loud music, comfort food, ice blocks will not do

reminiscence will not do, denial is not even working, half laughs, half smiles,

exaggerated laughter comes out hollow

nothing will do
