You Turned on Us by Makhanda Senzangakhona

Poem

You Turned on Us
Once,
In another time,
You embraced us,
Or so we thought,
When you sang
praises of us
And told all
Who cared to hear,
We were one
Born of a womb
Siblings from beginning
Now,
Here we are,
There is,
Nothing left
between us
Only memories
skulking in the corridors
Of our mind.
