A moment of pure honesty Sometimes I miss you.. Ok, that’s a lie. Very many times, I miss you I miss us. I want to swallow my pride and call Tell you about my day and ask you about yours But pride.. Pride is an interesting thing. Some call it a bitter pill. Sometimes I…

He made me one promise That he will never hurt me That my heart will always be safe with him My body too And all that I am. It was a simple promise to make. So I promised him the same thing too Not to hurt him Physically, emotionally, spiritually. But making promises is not…

LOVED AND PLAYED By Bent and Twisted in Ecstasy

He’s tall. Really tall. And he has big feet. That’s the one thing that stuck with me the entire time he’s in our house. The sibling is staring as well…so much so that we burn the food we’re making for this group of dudes. Oh well. They don’t mind. But I do. I don’t want…

UNFINISHED BUSINESS By Bent And Twisted In Ecstasy

He was looking exquisite. Like a fine piece of, excuse the foodie in me, STEAK! I just wanted to have him. There. Then. He was in a muscle tight t-shirt and jeans, and North Star sneakers. Those reminded me of my younger days. He wore this smile that just made the sun seem like an…

THE LUSTY VIXEN By Bent And Twisted In Ecstasy

Sigh!¬†Here we go. He’ll come up to me, wax lyrical about how much he’s missed me. Then hug me tight. Inhale my scent as I inhale his. I’ll give one of my ‘you’re late but you’re charming enough to get away with it‘ looks and smile. He’ll smile back. Then a bit of useless banter,…

DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES Part 2 By Kasichana Mumba

Who knew? This growing up thing isn’t exactly what it’s cut out to be, is it? I mean, look at us. Look at yourself. Look at me. We’re alive, but not living. We’re hearing things around us, but we’re not listening to what’s important to us. IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES ¬†Part…

I’m in a house. Full of corridors and hallways. It’s dark. Not too dark, though. I can make out the entrances…the exits…the doors…the spaces before me. But I don’t know which corridor to go down. Or the hallway to explore. I’m scared. Actually, I’m terrified. One, I hate the dark. My fears and nightmares come…

JUST ONE SIP…

The thirst… I feel it growing stronger everyday. Just a sip. One sip. Then, I’ll be quenched after that. One sip. It is hard. My throat feels dry. And the stress does not make it easier. Two years sober is not a joke. Keeping straight. Avoid that forbidden fruit, that forbidden fermented fruit. That drink….

JADED, FROM TIME TO TIME

Sometimes Sometimes I get so tired Tired of trying Tired of failing Sometimes I just wanna end it. Let it go. Sometimes It feels like it is not worth it Not worth the hassle Not worth the pain The tears Sometimes The pain is too much The tears flow endlessly Silently Sometimes Faking it is…

IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME By Mawirah Di’Poet

I know someday she will come my way With eyes that light up my dull soul At the kiss of her lips, I will surely tremble Her beauty will make my heart stop for a second or two She will see me for who I truly am, a good guy with nothing but love at…

TOXIC…

Sometimes I choose to look away Not because I don’t care Rather, because I care too much. Sometimes I put on a rough exterior Because deep down I’m fragile Sometimes I pretend to hate Because I love too much I tend to be rude Because my politeness goes unheard I shout Because my voice is…
