Wounds peel by Solitude

Solitude | January 10th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


I am tired lover
I am tired of cleaning your wounds
While you lay waste
Use your loss of a mother as an anchor to keep me here
I don’t want to be here anymore
I am sick…
I am tired.
Lover I am sick and tired
Of you crying all night
Nursing inxeba
Yet unwilling to move on from the pain
Ndikhathele lover
Of sucking up to your demons so they can introduce me to your angel
Lover ke kgathetse
Moya Waka o imelwa ke seriti sa hao
You abuse my ability to stay
You confuse it with my intention to love you
I stayed out of loyalty
My love ran dry from giving
As you took with no intention of pouring back
Lover I am tired
Ek is klaar
