Memories by Emmanuel Chitsanzo Mtema

 

Dilemma

What do these lines mean?
This artistic sculpture that lies meaninglessly on the floor
The earth’s hissing, who can understand?
A downpour of words that form senseless shapes
An ancient Greek message that require decoding.
Memory is so fresh, I have seen this before.
These hanging unfinished lines that we can’t read in between
Always asking for more time,
Telepathically communicating a negation
“Once beaten twice shy”, as the saying goes like.
The sky getting dark and scarier
Is this love or I should wait for another?
A poetic injustice is at play.

Memories

Let’s open our photo books.
The inner caves of our pleasant memories.
Where the Curvature of our union displays perfectly.
Overtly we lay, as every moment oozes through the poles of our love.
Our focal points shifting back and forth through the memory lane
The beginning is so vivid like it is yesterday.
Laughs and smiles that go an extra mile
As we paint a perfect imagery of all non-captured moments gone
Enclosed in our own sphere, never to escape
With dazzling leaps, we crawl
Seeking to advance through our imperfections.
That pivotal periodic feeling of belonging is our driving force.
We came, we saw and we conquered.
Surfing through moments indescribable
