Dream ~ Thandeka Mthembu


From my toes in you crept,
slowly working your way up
like and infectious virus
at my lonely hour
my mind was free for you to devour..
right as the young night

skipping my spine..
you cut open my soul
and spilled my deep dark secrets,
I had mistaken as mine.
With each image you possessed me
Destroying all the norm I know,
setting me free
you took me on a journey...

  1. This is wonderfully written, the cutting open of the soul, the taking of the poet on a journey. Well done.
