Doreen Maphosa Poems
Funny how your name doesn't bring a smile on my face Funny how I've no sweet memories to recall to mind Funny how I regret ever having said 'yes' to you Funny how I've finally had enough
The Road Less Traveled
Three words recall to memory like an old friend; Safety, familiarity, warmth One feeling I remember with strange familiarity; Security.
I remember when we used to lie here Lovebirds, fortune brought us together I remember when it felt like we had been together forever Believers, nothing could have torn us apart
This is a song for the lone pilgrim This is music for the thoughtful traveler Misery loves company Loneliness cherishes bosom friends
what yesterday never gave what the past never provided what my heart ever longed for what the future will never provide for
Beauty, that's me. Alluring, in my dark ebony skin. Breathtaking, in my shimmering mahogany hair. But he would rather play hide and seek, with the yellow bone.
It can not stand still, no. It can only give way to the new, yes. Bittersweet. It can not be denied, no.
Eyes. Fixed. Object. Its a girl. Eyes. Fixed. Judgment? Puzzlement? Admiration? Amusement?
A figment of my imagination Where did you go? They adulterized me They cheated me.,

Funny how your name doesn't bring a smile on my face
Funny how I've no sweet memories to recall to mind
Funny how I regret ever having said 'yes' to you
Funny how I've finally had enough
I've catered to your stupid ego
Your stupid insecurities
Not half heartedly
With my all, I did it
Emptied myself.., to cater to you
But now, all I sense is sick, twisted humor
Because its funny..,
Funny how I've had enough
So long, soldier.
You fought so hard to bring me down
So hard to boost your twisted ego
On my ...
