Come With Me by Glady Mwende

Come with me Let us hide under these forbidden skies With no stars Tonight Our eyes will spark the night   We will tell our stories skin to skin While our bones break to uncage our emotions The earth will break into a song We will forget our existence   I will hold you hostage With the soft kisses you once...

Struggles

I’ve been in a game for long Not realizing I’m a player. Heartfelt condolences to all who took part and lost. Loud noises, voices With different causes No certain forces Surrounded by nothing but guns, No roses. Smoke screen, clouded. My thoughts, crowded Dreams haunted Rest of the world, perfect.

Loud Silence

My experiences may have made me bitter. Got me to a point of no return. Doubting the preacher, The teacher, Even the scripture. My life has become a twister, And everything I do only sinks me deeper. I am doubting your existence, Regardless of my resilience I can’t ignore my experience.   I am looking for something, Don’t ask what? Instead give...
