My heart yearns for you,
You who broke it.
It's pieces seek your words just to mend them.
My mind drifts away, searching for you.
But all they find is pain when they find you.

If I Die Young
Yonwato Jun 2021
If I die young, do not mourn me.
Throw me a party
Wear bright colours to my funeral,
Make it a festival.
The world was dark enough,
Make my exit bright.

I have spent my worst days with you
I have spent my best days with you
Yet I live everyday, without you.

Pain that never goes away,
Wound that never heals,
These are the things that make me.
These are the things that **** me.

There's a sort of tension between us.
It isn't love,
It isn't lust.
We're both damaged and it brings us close.

Obsidian Blessing
Yonwato Feb 2018
A material as soft and silky as a velvet
with a sweet scent like lavender
bringing me the creamy sight
staining the coffee brown,
enclosed in a fleshy bracket.

My daily dose of brewed coffee,
sourced from the depth of nature,
from the origin of my being.

Let me sip from your honeypot
and savor the sweetness of life,
My African Woman.

Frozen tears
Yonwato Feb 2018
To not cry is a blessing and a curse
A blessing 'cause it hides your pain
A blessing' cause it shields your grief
But most of all, it is a curse
One that boxes up your emotions
One that leaves you defenseless
One that denies you allayment to grieve
One that let's you seem so strong when you're weak
One that leaves devastatingly flustered.
The kind of mixed feelings you get from the frozen tears that never falls is one that leaves you overshadowed by darkness.

What is love?
Yonwato Jul 2018
Love is attraction, not obsession.
Love is attention, not ignorance.
Love is emotional, not physical.
Love is understanding, not assumption.
Love is encouragement, not pressurizing.

Love teaches, love doesn't force.
Love guides, love doesn't push.
Love is a gift, but not always material.
When you say you love someone, make sure it's pure.
An impure love is dangerous and could damage someone's life.
Never base love on money or material things because that's just a terrible and selfish sense of responsibility.
I feel so terrible when someone offers me a gift because I feel like that person is trying to buy my love. I know this feeling is a wrong one but that is how I have been conditioned to think since I was a kid. My dad always but us gifts but he never really gave me the attention I needed. Take care of your kids the right way so they won't end up like me.

Have you ever seen a lion in the jungle?
Or a macaw in Amazonia
Have you seen a crocodile in the swamp?
Or a squirrel in the woods
Maybe you saw a whale in the ocean
Or a grizzly bear in the forest.
Did you notice their emotions, because they feel happy.
They are at home.
Where they feel content,
And that is how I feel when you're around me.
Filled with vigor and joy, never expecting anything to go wrong.
But am I right to feel at home with you?
Are you the one for me?
Perhaps I'm wrong to be happy with you.
But I don't want to be without you 'cause I may never be at home.

Purpose of life
Yonwato Feb 2018
We live in a world
Where the wrong things have become right,
We live in a world,
Where our happiness depend on the rules,
We live in a world where our lives are written in pixels.

Where did we lose it,
Our purpose in life?
Where did we lose it,
Our freedom to live?

Take me back to the time,
When all we had was life.
Take me back to the time,
When family was key.

For in this time I live,
I have no freedom.
In this time I live,
I have no family.

All I have now is pixels,
Colorful and attractive,  
Dictating my life style,  
While I forget how to live.
Our lifestyle gradually avoids the most important things in life, we run around with our phones and forget to care for family, we are so engrossed in our daily pattern that has been laid down by authorities and we have forgotten who we are. We now depend on machines to live our lives for us.

I am a friend and a lover.
I am a lover in a friend and a friend in a lover.
Two can co-exist.

A kiss
Yonwato Dec 2019
A kiss
A cold kiss,
A kiss that drains the soul and leaves you empty,
A kiss of doom that requires no chemistry
A kiss with an unwanted partner, one we all avoid.
A kiss that stops time; your time
The inevitable kiss of death that breaks the heart
One that brings a sour mood and tears, one that hurts your loved ones.
A kiss we'll all get eventually.
Brace up for The kiss for it can't be missed.
We all tend to race against death but it'll always catch up with us. Some chose not to believe in it but we can never escape it. We just have to prepare for it, it's inevitable.

My inconspicuous anger
Yonwato Jul 2019
The anger in me, one I choose to show no one.
The anger in me, which no one could ever understand.
I could let it out, but that would be a disaster,
I bottle it up, but that's another type of disaster.
What do I do to make it stop?
Oh! I know,
I'll just keep it under the mask of my smile.
I somehow couldn't complete this how I wanted

A Journey To Self Discovery
Yonwato Oct 2020
A walk through the journey of life,
taking a stroll on the beach side
Looking into oblivion as the sea meets the sky
The dark of nights engulfs my soul
poisoning my mind and raising questions.

"Who am I?"
"What do I stand for?"
"Do I have a purpose?"

The questions echo in my head,
the darkness mocks me with silence
and then it struck me.
My existence was never  meant to be.

Painful love
Yonwato Feb 2018
You're too much for me
Too much pain to handle
Too much stress to go through
Too much love to for me to have
And all that because
I'm cowardly and weak
And I run from the strong.

And though we're far apart,
My heart belongs to you.

Yonwato Feb 2020
I am the darkness, I engulf anything in my path
I destroy cities, I destroy lives
I fight the light, and **** the bright
Sometimes you just feel like you were made to ruin things

Whiskey and Thoughts

For nights like this,
Give me something strong to drown it all

You were my soul mate,
You left with my soul.

I wear the happiest smile,
I have the happiest face,
But you've never met another,
As unhappy as I am.

I miss you!
Yonwato Feb 2020
And when the thought of you crosses my mind, I get grief-stricken .

I'm always desolated.
This is just how I feel about someone I lost.
92 · Feb 2020
Yonwato Feb 2020
And sometimes I just want to feel the pain,
the swift, sharp pain of a heart being pierced,
Not because I love the pain,
but because of the relief which comes after.
These are the thoughts of a depressed soul. Be kind
