Marry Me

Marry Me ode

Photo by Lel4nd

i will not marry you,
because of your color
i will not marry you
because of your nationality
yes, i will not marry you
for your faith
i will not marry you
for your social status
for our political differences
marriage is off the table
i will not marry you
my parents object it
i will not marry you
because of age-long taboo
between our communities
i will not marry you
for personality differences
for medical reasons
i will not marry you
i will not marry you
because my visional
say: no
my spiritual father say:
no
i will not marry
because our visions
are different
i will not marry you
yes-i will not marry-
move on to look
for your lover
i will not. i will not. i will not.

It’s Me Khoisan

It’s Me Khoisan long poem

Quit the stare, the stairs await us, I see ice in your eyes, in two weeks, I too forgot, The waves of love live within us, Even when the heart heat revives, the silence sinks, Emotions woven, relationships entangled, just
