To the love of my life♥️- a poem by Sheila “Summie” Nyathi

To the love of my life

I live everyday with a smile on my face
Because I know that I have you by my side
Your laugh is like music to my ears and i will never get tired of hearing it
For over a decade,my love for you still gets stronger

No one knows about the stuff I have been through with you..
Many are times you’d drive me nearly mental
But on all those times and bad days,
I hold on to the love we have formed..
And still I reassure you that as long as I’m breathing
I will not let us die..

No one knows about the good things you do
How much you sacrifice for us
Your heart is just so beautiful
You give, and people take advantage of you
You let them, I know
It’s just the way you are,
You are ‘the King of Hearts’

My heart will forever beat for you
Even though I know we are not carved into a perfect picture of a romantic movie
And we are nowhere near a fairytale
But the flaws and the struggles we face together
Are what makes us stronger and show us
That this love is worth fighting for
You were right when you said
“We are forever even when push comes to shove”

After all these years
You have remained my soulmate
And I have felt a love that I don’t wanna lose
Of course I notice the aggressive and reckless sides of you
But we have our own connection
The strong bond that no one can ever break
Zvina Mwari mukati, “Godisinit”
And it is the proof that we are meant to be
I love you standwa Sami, McDee♥️

Love costs nothing!- a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

Love costs nothing!

They wanted me to fear love
Their insecurities and my paranoia worked hand in glove.
I built walls around me thinking I’m wise;
All i saw were cold hearts filled with malice,
And within my high walls, my soul was always wanting.
Noone told me that love costs nothing!

They lied that love will cost me my freedom,
But i found my freedom in love and I created my Eden.
They told me that commitment demands faithfulness;
That doesn’t scare me because noone is flawless.
I found a love so unconditional, Its purity so absolving,
And without a doubt I can say, love costs nothing!

I will never be ashamed to cry her a river
Yes, I will let all my emotions show for my heart has a caregiver.
Don’t give me your harangue about the dangers of falling,
I know the world is deceptive and now to love is appalling
But my heart remains defiant and it will never be accepting.
It knows that love costs nothing!

I know that love is patient, respectful and kind,
It is the very thread that holds together humankind.
Love is never selfish and It is quick to forgive
And it is never vengeful and It is not abusive;
Love is not materialistic and It does not demand a token.
I assure you, love costs nothing!

When it’s over!💔- a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

When it’s over!💔

We were beautiful together, a colorful rose
Perfectly bloomed, exquisite and well groomed.
Our bond, a paradox, was both esoteric and exoteric;
We shared the same cerebral cortex,
We were one in mind, body and soul.
What is left when it’s over?

My orchid heart was a pollinarium,
Ours was an attachment with no strings;
Dangling in the chasm fraught with conundrum.
The truth is like an octopus, one can’t escape its tentacles
Caught in the web of lies and there is really no escape.
What happens when it’s over?

How did we get to these crossroads?
Our relationship was intersected by charlatanry.
No necropsy needed because we know the cause of death;
I reached into your heart and I felt the cold
Even necromancers might fail to reanimate this.
What to do when it’s over?

The weakness of the heart is somewhat paradoxical!
It is sure of its resolve to wry,
And yet it continues to yearn for the forbidden.
Love is a drug and one longs for the perfusion;
It is always a struggle to enforce the inhibitions.
We are totally lost when it’s over!

Son of Thunder! – a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

Son of thunder!

I am truly a Son of Thunder,
And a very few appreciate my candor.
I can’t stand the pain of biting my own tongue;
Thus in the construct of my words, the truth is strung.

Oh yes, I am truly a Son of Thunder!
What is good for the goose is also good for the gander.
I roar out peace, for i know war is perilous;
And never doubt my valor, my soul is ferocious.

I, the true Son of thunder!
When my lightning strikes, ignorance is put asunder;
And when my light shines, immorality suffers apostacy
Inevitably, the girl child abandons all feelings of inadequacy.

If I am truly a Son of Thunder;
Allow me to curse all feet that rush to plunder!
The feet of mercenaries with souls so corrupted
I distaste their ways, they are so violent and protracted.

Oh but I am truly a Son of Thunder!
And I dazzle the world with a boyish sense of wonder.
My youthful exuberance only inspires awe;
As all sons of men concede that happiness is law.

Dear Shirley, be yourself! – a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

Dear Shirley, be yourself!

Most will find you too loud
Others, your voice they will wish to cloud
And many will find you boringly quiet
But that shouldn’t make you hide away in the closet.
Dear Shirley, be yourself!

They will say you are not funny enough,
But make friends and expect some to rebuff.
Find someone who will laugh at your bad jokes
The world is bitter and it’s smile is all a hoax.
Dear Shirley, be yourself!

Don’t let them force you to conform
Always remember, in authenticity there is freedom.
The beauty of the world lies in our differences
Therefore, do you and never worry about appearances.
Dear Shirley, be yourself!

They will fault you for loving easily
Don’t mind their folly, just choose wisely.
Their insecurities should never rub off on you,
Only trust God to be your guide, the world has no clue.
Dear Shirley, be yourself!

Endeavor to discover what you are truly good at
And if you don’t, the world will put you in a bracket.
Be vigilant, the world will always try to steal your innocence
Also shun all things free, the devil has no free presents.
Dear Shirley, be yourself!

Don’t stay there too long! – a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

Don’t stay there too long!

They will surely break your heart
Yes they will tear it apart;
Rip it out and stomp on it.
To add insult to injury,
You will receive no apology
And they will blame you for your pain.
Remember, it is ok to wallow for a while
But don’t stay there too long!

If you expect the world to be all rosy;
You are still none the wiser my child.
I would be remiss not to warn you,
Choose whom to trust carefully
And also do not allow paranoia to set in.
Their appetite for chaos is voracious
They will punch you and you will surely fall;
Just don’t stay there too long!

Yes, they will label you not good enough
It is by their standard and not yours.
Do not be driven by avarice
Lest your appetite becomes insatiable;
And yes, it matters how you get there.
Choose wisely and always speak truth to power
When they beat you down, it is ok to go lick your wounds
But don’t stay there too long!

A penny for your thoughts my friend! – a poem by McDennias H. Moyo

A penny for your thoughts my friend!

They warned me not to reach for the forbidden fruit.
With logs in my ears;
Their words went with the wind.
I deemed them all lies,
And I dared to question their verity.

Weary, hollow and languid!
Travailous was my journey to nowhere.
I lost myself along the way;
I conformed just to please my lover,
A lover who exploited my gullibility.

I have made my own bed,
But please don’t force me to sleep in it;
Lest Morpheus claims my soul for eternity.
Please don’t continue to bite your tongue,
Or else you will become complicit in my lover’s crimes.

Indulge me, I’m fully cognizant now.
Hit me with the truth;
And feed me that humble pie.
My eyes are pealed and my ears are unclogged,
Show me the beast and help me slay it.

The beast was sweet and cunning,
It was as deceptive as a honeycomb.
Stung by the beauty from a beehive;
I argued that it was a delicacy fit for the gods,
And still you refrained from bursting my bubble.

The snake slithered with so much ease into my heart,
Massaging all my traps out of its way.
My cardinal sin was to beg for your silence;
Because love for me was a bolt from the blue.
A penny for your thoughts my friend!
