Sinomhlobo Marwanqa (1996-08-16 / East London)
Hands that will never meet
Lips that will never hold the moment
My mind cant reason
Yet my heart bears the torment
The feeling is no season
The pillow can tell the strides of emotion
Like a wave rising
This feeling causes emotional commotion
The ground I'm walking on is blazing
The life I live alone is a concoction.
Skin that will never feel
Hearts that will never simultaneously beat
My body yearns you to heal
Sincerely you're the light to my world
The beat to my heart for so long long you've held
Tick tock the clock spoke
Of stories that gave me horror
My heart was covered with a cloak
I only hope yours would come closer
Thoughts about you I cant block.
With equal distance apart
You still set my passion ablaze
Making me believe that
Inbetween us there is a haze
I was hoping this would be a phase
But it has lasted too many days.
Its Parallel Affection.
