And life is just a pebble
I choose to stumble upon
I don’t like typing. For some reason I find it annoying.
And my laptop’s about to sleep and it’s one of the many load shedding hours that plague my nation so I’ll finish this post…
when I feel like it.
I’m back with a little something I wrote while sitting in the college cafeteria yesterday while listening to “Safe and Sound” by Taylor Swift (the OST for The Hunger Games)
Both hands around the styrofoam coffee cup
I sit in the shadows
(The draughtiest corner)
with a scalded tongue
and a thousand different reasons to cry
“You’ll be alright’
I hear the lie so innocently said
But it’s still what it is
And you get away with it every time.
I, caught like a flailing fish,
Out of water
Out of my element –
I burn my tongue,
A punishment for your sins.
