You claim I am flawed You say I do not belong My colour different My body too big I am attracted to same-sex I love all genders! Pause, look, think Is beauty only uniform? In different packages it comes In more ways than one I am capable My beauty is not just in my abilities …

Her sultry eyes Pierce at hearts Tempting full lips A promise to sip Graceful neck In beads deck High breasts glistening Svelte waist slithering Long Legs gliding Sensual beads jiggling The jungle rumbles Scavengers scramble Eager to stake a claim With a stamp of chain Young, innocent and ripe She takes her place of pride …

If only my heart didn’t beat At the promise of your heat Eagerly awaiting the touch That leads to the brunch   If only it wasn’t just a few days That happened to be the best lays With a promise of unknown tomorrows While the goodbye herald the sorrows   If only we didn’t feel …

They say it is culture I say it is torture Born a woman, a reason to be oppressed It is culture, a woman must be suppressed I must never be too forward They will only drag me backward As a woman I must learn to be submissive For a man has the power to be …

Brown skin, taut hair It stands erect in its glory Strong and firm Glistening, it beckons Its beauty invigorating Its touch intoxicating In my bare hands it nestled I took it close to my heart It feels so good, so alive It tells of tales of pleasures

My Mysterious Lover!


Like the sunflower opens to the sun I cling to you yearning for my fun Opening to you my honey to suckle My knees under the pressure buckles In your eyes I see the twinkle Your smile gives me the tickles As you take my hands in a tango I know it is now time …

June 12: A Hope For Democracy, A Fight For justice, A Dream Yet To Be Fulfilled But Where Did It All Go Wrong?

June 12 evokes a not so distant memory of hope raised and hope dashed. Memories of a fight for democracy, a cry to kick out the military regardless of which civilian got the mandate, bitter memories of inhaling tear gas, of being dragged by soldiers to the worst of cells and of scribbling notes from …

Chin Up And Weather The Storm!

Chin up Lion!

You think you have it rough Could it be as tough as the dough? Beaten up and cuts into bits Tossed into the oven heat Yet comes out crispy and hot Ready for the icing on top With the paste we all have a favourite place Cakes put a smile on many a bride’s face …
