Another love letter
Grace Thaba Jan 2020
You are the inspiration to my poems
The reason for the lovely melodies I sing
And all the hymns I resonate as I give thanks for having you in my life
You don’t have to be near for me to feel you because I carry you in my heart
I’ll forever cherish the day you walked my path
Because of you I know how it feels to love and be loved
You are the one I choose to stand with
The light of my life

My superwoman
Grace Thaba Jan 2020
There’s more where that came from
A bleeding heart was only the start,
The tears you cried late up at night,
Sad songs you sang till the morning rose,
Not that you’re weak-but let them continue to speak,
Had your heart broken and your love taken for granted,
Wore a smile every morning and faced the world even when deep down you wanted to pour out your heart and hope it eases the pain,
There’s more where that came from
I’m talking about your fierce,
Your ability to carry the whole world on your shoulders while making it look easy,
Let she be celebrated for her admirable super powers,
For she’s a superwoman

Love-A way of life
Grace Thaba Sep 2019
Maybe it's the way that I catch you staring when I open my eyes and the sunlight has come alive
Or it might be the fact that you smile,and my whole world catches fire
They told us love is an imagination
But everytime you hold me near it becomes certain, you can't really give love a defination
They can't solve it- it's a feeling not a calculation
I know a place where we can be
A place where lovers are soaring free
Where you can be mine and I'll be yours
Where loving you becomes a way of life
I know a place where heartbeats race
A place Where cupid's grinning late at night
Where you'll be my knight and I your light
And loving you is just a way of life
When someone gives you that feeling you can't usually put to words,stop trana explain it and let yourself feel free-make loving a way of life

When your heart is broken
And you couldn't make them stay
You don't have to feel that way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray

When self doubt weighs in heavy
And you dont know which direction you heading
Guidance is on your way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray

Sometimes days don't get easier, but that doesn't mean it has to be the end
Did you know you'll get stronger from those days?
You'll get the answers as to why you lived those days
If you kneel and pray

I didn't mend this heart on my own
I kneeled down and I prayed
I didn't make it this far on my own
I kneeled down and I prayed
So if you feel that way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray
When days are dark and everything seems to not be going your way, PRAY

Hustle Rhythm
Grace Thaba Jun 2019
When it gets too much and I feel like giving up, I remember why I started in the first place
Remember how I crossed boundaries for this
I used to skip class and catch rides with strangers for this
Broke mama's heart and papa's trust on the way
Broke a couple church rules,I became a mess everyday
Did  it Just so I could fill the empty void in my heart
Did it just so I can start counting checks not test marks

Broken Love Letter
Grace Thaba Jun 2019
I might be falling but it's not in love
I love love but not romantic love
Scared to feel the pain again,scared to be taken for a fool again so I hold back whatever I feel cos
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Made you buy my faviorite wine,promised you to come dine with you and give it a try but I never arrived
Turned off the phone, Turned off the lights and went to sleep with my concious killing me
I should've called and told you I'm not game for it, left you in vain! wanted to come but I was too scared I might fall in love again
I don't wanna fall in love- dont wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Stood you up and I did the same to him and him and him too.
Gave him a kiss and promised to be back before sunset but that was a lie too
Went to bed with the thought of what could've been if I went back there
Maybe he might of given me the look that he gave me when I opened the door and saw him for the first time
I wouldn't know because I was too scared to go back
Scared he would kiss me again and this time I'd drown deeper and ask if I'm a keeper and we might just fall in love.
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Told me you were coming so I said I'd be right here when you get here
Promised you attention and maybe a little bit of my affection but you got here and as soon as I felt  an attraction I turned around and never looked back
Acted like you were not here- Dawn came and I left you sleeping on the couch all alone
No goodbye, no words from daytime till dawn just the confusion in your eyes and fury that calmed each time you were taken away by my still fresh face I wish I could say I was sorry but that would start another love story
I don't wanna fall in love -I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

I'm in love with love but not romantic love
This could've been a love letter to the one
But  it's just a broken love letter about the broken hearts I have caused because
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

wrote a poem then I deleted it
Turned it to a song, - lyrics and beat didn't match
Ran out of ideas,creat - ivity blur
I'd call but "Pride" said don't tell him how you feel
And if he felt it too he'd put you on the line first
Butterflies are rare but in my stomach there's plenty
An athletic heartbeat- can you feel it racing?
Promise to catch my spark, Promise to be my star
Shine your light on me when it get's too dark,when days get tough,and it no longer feels like a walk in the park
I said Promise to catch my spark and Promise to be my star
Sit and wonder till you can wonder no more
Cos here in my heart lies a place you can always call home
I don't know what the feeling's called but I know your name is "crush"

You joy stealer, you bad bad liar
Always walks away after breaking my heart into pieces,that fulfills his burning desire
Swept away by the sound of my cry as he throws me in the fire
A joy stealer, A bad bad liar
He feeds on pain,he collects broken hearts
Taken away by your sadness and if you think what I'm saying is madness
Look at the satisfaction in his eyes when he sees you drowning in sorrow
A heartless joy stealer and a bad bad liar
Paints a canvas using nothing but my mascara tears to complete his art of the helpless
Oh my dear old sadist you will forever remain a joy stealer and a bad bad liar

Still titled "untitled"
Grace Thaba Oct 2018
Small pain designated can only grow if intended
The blood flowing from your wrist
Just enough to fill river Jordan
Your tears powerful enough to erase the smiles from thousands
Your cry loud enough to raise fury
I see that pain has designed you, I see that it has made you stronger
You are now fearless and worth a million rubies
Grace Thaba Aug 2018
I sit here and think of our little conversations
Your smile got me thinking of a thousand things but my everlasting loneliness
Lonely hours pass me by, and all I can think of is the face of a man perfectly sculpted to release the joy in my heart
Your presence makes my heart skip faster than the early train of Johannesburg
The smell of your cologne takes my mind to places far beyond where we are
I dream of you, I dream of blues
The sound of your voice is like sweet melodies sang by birds of praise
The touch of your skin on mine makes me forget of the existence of pain and sorrow
Within you I find happiness, within you I find a better me
When I dream of you, I dream of blues

Broken Love Poem
Grace Thaba Aug 2018
Why did you ask me for time and distance when you're already too far to reach?
Why do you cry when songs of love are sung?
Why do you feel alone with all these people besides you?
Why love if you feel it hurts?
Why me if you sit and live in regrets?
If it’s true that you keep your words
Then why so many empty promises?
I wished I would have known you, and then only would I have loved you like you wanted to be loved
But you drifted away
You kept creating distance, you kept finding reasons
You kept me waiting for an appearance that never existed
Now all I have as a memory of you is a broken love poem I just completed….

— The End —
