Madonna's Lament


Spotlight; Concentration
As blood on the journey of filteration
Visible moans in detention
Barely minding the smiles constructed
Prognosis proves with you I was infected
Failed to protect my heart, celestial being intoxicated by yammer
Rather than emotional paralysis
I would've preferred breaking my femur
None was aware of my definition
Matters changed; conversion

As you were!
I can see the once silent screams of banging hearts
Hear the moments you once wore a smile of flair
Taste the once organised deeds that now make me a cluts
It is unbearable as the past I glare
With eyes that are natural water resources
Like in autum, in summer our leaves depart
The love I have for rain
Blessed with the ability to rain on my pain
Luckily for the winds I dont pain as if slain
This rain on my pain not as if slain
I dare stand to gain

Ihambo iyazilawula
For all my deaths bendinyathela udaka
Applied to be but my myself kodwa zange ndikwaz ukuyifaka
Living with being told you're a sucker
Liable for a personality not aligned with being darker
You'd swear ukuba bangakuxhela with words lifeless as Dakar
I'm a golden cup falling kuthe qhu-sa!
Ndiqhekeke abantu bazibuza ngeziqhamo
Refused ukuqheleka ngenxa yokuqhekeka, ndaziqhina
Far from homicide I was closer to emotional suicide

'Fore I spread my wings and fly
Beloved foes buy me some bye
'Cause as long as I pass by its harder say bye
Never was easy to buy bye when I walk by and say bye
Yet it was ABC for thine to lie
And leave me isolated to cry
In a mute yowl while I pass by
To buy some goodbye
I'll gather the courage and audacity
With no alacrity to say bye.
