Ziggy Mantyi Poems
If Only Music Was There.(A Silent Song F...
Even though the mountain so blue, I will always think of you. This is exactly what you should know,
In days like these I can hear your heart echo to every song that I desire to sing.
Hope You Can See.
Is it not amazing? The swaying movement like tall grass in the summer breeze. A drop, a splash, a ripple, a pattern, a view a brain couldn't sketch without the eye seeing it. It sank deep into my skin like a blade cutting through my vain. Like the birth of the son when he saw the sun for the first time and the pain in his eyes as the blades cut deeper and deeper. It was there before time started ticking, before darkness turned to light and waters flowed down Victoria.
Not true, but we all get pricked sometime. Life is not a walk in the park with a glass of honey and lime. I feel so restless seeing this picture in my head, nowadays it's the hardest thing to make a wish instead.
In days like these I can hear your heart echo
to every song that I desire to sing.
Even though it is so hard to see through the yellow
with your melody I can pull on the perfect string.
I might not believe in the joy that the world may bring,
but my heart always tells me that your love is the real thing.
I might not believe in star signs shown in the magazine,
because your name rings in my head like the sound of a tembarine.
