my engel sonder vlerke,

jy het onverwags jou verskyning gemaak
my hart geneem
sonder om eens aan my te raak

met my hart op my mou
al was ek soveel keer gewaarsku
tog voel ek só veilig by jou

my engel sonder vlerke,

ek wil weet wat laat jou lag,
*** om jou gemoed op te beur
as jy nie kans sien vir die dag

ek wil weet *** jy koffie drink,
jou hartslae per minuut
en waaraan jy elke sekonde van die dag ****

my engel sonder vlerke

met jou groenbruin oë
en mooiwees glimlag
laat jy my weer in sprokies glo

vir jou doen ek alles,
sonder om ‘n oog te knip,
net oor ek oor jou mal is

alles net vir
my engel sonder vlerke.

lavender has always been just that - lavender.

until

I met her.

lavender is stealing is kisses in the kitchen,
nosey neighbours peering over,
two souls, simply smitten.
lavender is sneaking glances across the crowd,
spotting her smile - seventh heaven, standing on a cloud.
lavender is nerves getting the best of you,
but feelings you’re willing to push through.
lavender is being shy,
‘stay a while longer, don’t say bye’.
lavender is laughing out of your stomach,
wanting to show her off in public.
lavender is melting with each message,
slipping away from the world for just a few seconds.
lavender is a racing heartbeat when she lays on your chest,
then contentment, as your jumping heart takes a rest.
lavender is forever looking at her lips,
mind filled with thoughts about dancing with her, hands around her hips.

I met her.

until

lavender is accepted in every garden,
I will keep my lavender hidden.

lavender will always be just that - lavender.

I recently came out. I met an amazing girl. My life will be forever changed.

dis amper vyf jaar later.

jy drink nog saam my koffie in my bed tydens ons stiptelike afspraak -
op nostalgiese Sondae aande
wanneer die wêreld stilraak,
kort voor die week weer sy stophorlosie
aanpas.

die herinneringe tog só aanskoulik,
maar stééds kan ek myself nie bring om
jou stem te herroep nie!

voor ek jou kan vasgryp, weer saam jou kan lag
óf
my gesig sag teen jou bors kan vasdruk,
verdwyn jy,
en Skuld neem jou plek in tussen die lakens,
klink die koppie teen myne
gee ‘n grynslag
en sluk my heel in.

I tuck my head
under your chin.
your kisses spreading
l o v i n g l y
over my skin.

I took from another -
me; a selfish, selfish being.
now, I’m ‘the other’.
Just some thoughts going through my mind.

voices sound the same
they did, until I met you
now I just seek yours

I never knew that
happiness could take on form;
but then I met you.
❤️❤️❤️

your scars -  a road map;
sad, endless tales spreading far
of battles once fought.
