“Hush”, She Said

I cast my eye over at her from across the room
Sitting so pretty all calm and cool
As I take in her sight
Curves looking more than right
I tell her I love her
But if she knew how much
But if she knew just how

My heart races at the sound of her voice
Pulse quickens when she says my name
She is a woman, she’ll understand
Just where I want the touch of her hand

I smile with the sweet sensations
Let’s forget all our hesitations
Let me entertain you
I promise my love will please you
The night claims our conscience
We won’t complain
Cos it’s convenient
That this ecstasy, this indulgence
Continues way past the sparks of the moment

I woke up to the sun kissing her cheeks
Oh wait, no. That was just me
My moans evaded the confinements of my mind
She looked right back at me
“Hush”, she said. And then she smiled
She’s a little tease. She sees right through me.
“Just once”, she said. “Let’s do it just once.”


That’s Just How It Is

I got home from the library last night around midnight. No, I wasn’t studying (sorry, mama). To be honest, now that I think of it, I can’t even remember what I was doing. But I know it made me hungry. Hungry enough to warrant a BigMac n fries. Ha! What are vouchers for, right?

I was stuck on Mishal Moore for a while, all up on her YouTube page. And it started to make me feel some typa way. So I decided it was time to go downstairs to our halls bar and try out that piano I’ve been eyeing for months, if my rusty hands hadn’t already given up on me, that is.

Turns out I’m okay, ya know (high-five)!! Okay enough to write a song anyway. Well, a verse, but still. Before I knew it, my fingers were carressing the keys and it  made sense to my soul. You know how some people pray in tongues? This is it for me. This is my baptism of fire. It is a language only my soul knows to speak. It is the seed you planted in me that grew into our blooming love. And now, even when… you’re not here anymore (wow, that was hard to admit), I still understand.

Ahhh, I was talking about music! How did we get here?! Okay, so the melody came first. Then the minor falls and the major lifts:

One day we’ll see

Where we will be

Just you and me

Somewhere above

All of the clouds

And all the blues

Ha! I just retrieved the lyrics from my phone – and…I cannot for the life of me remember how the melody of the song goes. Here one minute, gone the next. I guess that’s just how dreams and memories work. I guess that’s just how it is.
