Let Me 💌

LizMishPics

My heart beats fast within me
A rate that sends blood gushing,

As current from a circuit

Too fast within the vessels,

And somehow I feel charged
A while a go I stood sturdy

Now my inner self’s gooey

My flesh fails me intensely

I find myself succumbing

I cannot stop this feeling.
For once I’m tired of trying

To stop me from believing

That I could feel this longing

This drunken drowsy feeling

To love and be loved back
Let me feel this fragile once

Let me stand here vulnerable

Let my eyes meet yours

Let the silence stand a minute

Let me melt down to the floor
If you could fathom how I feel

Or have a clue of what I think

If you could stand amidst this storm

Or let the love waves take you up

Then you’d somewhat have a hint.
Let me feel exposed this once

Let me put my perfect down

If you can’t hide it let it show

Don’t look down please look at me

Let’s meet eyes, that’s where it starts.

What’s Up with Moviemakers? 

Some movies make you feel like you’re in love;
Like this one: ‘The Holiday Movie’

So you have to fall in love with someone,

Even if that someone is yourself (if that’s a thing)

Is it right, really? Stirring up all these feelings,

Making you feel like a balloon (that’ll probably burst in the next few minutes)

What was the producer thinking? Or whoever the script writer(s) was!

I feel emotionally abused, I should remember that I’m not the happy girl,

Who falls in love with prince charming in the movie (not that it can’t happen 😉

But if you could look past the feelings for a while, past the large “love” banner,

You’ll see the sin in that scene:

They kissed before they knew each other!

She got laid before she got married to him!

What’s with all the kissing in front of all those people?

No-one wants to know if you’re in love or not!

So if she loves him, she doesn’t have to run off like that and leave the taxi driver unpaid.

Irresponsible!

You movie guys can’t fool me,

I see beyond your creative imagination,

You lie to me when you end your movie in a “happy ever after”

How do we know that they won’t die the moment they’re off the screen?

Or get bored of each other and get a divorce?

I love true love and all that sass, but please, spare my feelings I don’t need a heart wreck!

STOP!


Stop making a name for yourself.

(They say pride comes before a fall.)
Behold,  this man I am!

A fully actualised being,

Fully unbound to the limit

Good enough a son to Ma and Pa,

I scored good grades at school you know-

Sufficient to cover up for Math
Then society made demands…

At first in whispers- haunting mumbles

Society wanted me better- rebranded

That’s how I ended up here.

So I’m holding this meeting,

And though it’s just me, the voices are too many

This debate is doubtlessly deafening.
These voices, pleasant at first,

They sing in chorus-

“Show them what you got!”

Then,”You can do it!”

Later,”You’re the best!”

And now, “Who can boggle you?”

They sing a little chant,

Pushing me to be more-

To be great, go out there

Show the world what I got.
And though I have much

To send the world agog

To offset the set records-

I realise that it’s all me, me, me-

It’s no more than a project for fame,

To make known The Beat I got,

Till I’ve set The Trend in town

It’s about being a Mheshimiwa

So I’m here nkijiTahidi High,

To win trophies and awards
So I woke up one day,

Wanna know what the Lord said?

“It all belongs to me,

I could take it away in a wink,

A blink of an eye, a snapping of the finger,

But I have chosen not to,

I could sweep you off earth’s surface,

They’d eventually forget you,

But I have chosen not to.”

Right before I woke up,

I was ashamed but I hid it,

But this is what the voice says,

“STOP! Stop making a name for yourself!”
