Let me…

By Moleboheng Mahasa: Let me float high on a cloud of peace and joy. Let me escape the daily trappings of gloom and fly away to unexplored places. Let me drink in the majestic beauty of the scenery. Let the lush carpets of green instil upon me tranquillity and serenity. Let the stillness envelope my senses and shut down any […]

Tears in my hands

Egan Tabaro: Lone drink on the table Man of my dreams seated across I gave my heart, ardor and body to him Now he looks back at me wondering why I cry The wells of his love for me have finally gone dry   My head is bowed Pain's fell clutch grips me Those moments we had together Will be […]

Slinging stones

By Owuor Kuyoh: One of life's most head banging moments for me is having an encounter with a 3yr old cousin of mine who takes me for his punching bag/bat mobile/dare devil sidekick/agony aunt/sponge bob/partner in crime.  Those roles fall in no particular order but I'm beginning to notice a pattern of one. Anyway, the little junior always gives me […]

At the bottom of the glass (I)

By Egan Tabaro: When he woke up this morning, it had been a normal day for Andrew; he had had his usual bachelor's breakfast; black tea and deep fried cassava chips he bought the previous night from the roadside canteen.

Bleeding Hearts

By Emmanuel Adebayo: Anita was trying really hard to mask her unhappiness; it was supposed to be a happy day for both of them, a dream – come true. They had waited for this day with great anticipation. David could see right through her; he stopped what he was doing and moved close to her, hugged her from behind in […]
