The Silent Pose Of An African Princess - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

You stare into nothing
As if staring into something
Possessed, obsessed by the emptiness before you
The silence within protruding through your invincible thoughts
The sound of your heartbeat muted to avoid unnecessary echoes
Vibrations have a way of distorting the perfect picture
The silent pose of an African princess

Words are not enough to describe your peaceful existence
Nor capture the emotions in your motionless face
I need a brush and a can of paint
Maybe then I will paint a masterpiece
The silent pose of an African princess
