Ke December Boss

Endless sizzling hot days. Sun, swimsuits, carefree, every day yours to do with as you please.

Family, friends, catch up time with all your people: a reminder of where you belong.

Gifts exchanged; I’m special to you and you to me. Thank you for being in my life and letting me into yours.

I love the African festive season ☺

Invigilation

Invigilation is a slow game of Pacman. There are, however, no winners;

Just teachers entrenched in those aisle

Picking up dropped pencils and adjusting facedown student cards- bored out of their minds

Knowing fully well that their only escape is a quiet classroom and a pile waiting for that red tick- Or red cross.

Students, stuck in their seats filling pages and pages with dates and sums and reasons in hopes that they will will be rewarded. Sometimes merely waiting for the declaration: “Pens down!”

Indeed, this game of Pacman holds us all hostage!

Better Than Me

No one knows how to lift my spirits better than me.Just put me behind the wheel and give me an adventure to embark on.

No one knows how to make my heart flutter better than me. Play me something beautiful, progressions with minors and husky voices and words that sing what I feel.

No one takes care of me better than me. Give me my matchbox flat, flavours to mix in a pot that nourish my belly and my soul.

No one calms me better than me. Make the room quiet and leave me to my own devices.

No one knows me better than me and no one loves me better than me because I’m all I’ve got…

Later

“I’ll save it for later; when the mood is right and the moment is perfect,” she mused.

The thing about the perfect moment though, it is aluding. It is always just out of reach. The mood, not quite right enough, the moment, not quite perfect enough.

Sometimes, you will find, that you left that perfect mood and perfect moment behind as you put it off for later.

Sweet Embrace

After a week that felt like a lifetime of turmoil and angst and fear and giving up, he walked in, pulled her close, kissed the very corner of her mouth and held her. A thick embrace filled with so many words they both didn’t know where to begin untangling. Sighs of “I missed you so” and “I’m so sorry” and “I never want to be without you”, “How I love you” perhaps? So they stood there; him holding her, her holding him and they felt it all instead.
