I’m just a hotel with a revolving door
For people passing through the town of me
Some stay for only a night
Others live here for years
Most are somewhere in between
But it’s the lovers who are always the quickest to leave
Often without saying a word
They take all the freebies, empty the fridge and call up room service in the early hours of the morning
I give them everything and only then do they pack their bags and slip out the door without looking back
I’m left all alone again in an empty room
Sheets lingering with the smell of yet another lost lover.
Ms Noma Oct 2021
Let me tell you about relationships
Well, nothing new or insightful
But things we all just know
Family, romance or friendships
They’re only ever temporary
One day someone has to go
And it can be the worst pain ever
Knowing that you’ll see them never
But I tell you, don’t cry yet
Worry not dear, do not fret
For we knew the days will come
That we all lose our loved ones
Let the pain seep into you
Let it’s juice pour over you
Let your heart soak in its stew
Let it wash you through and through
And by the end I promise you
It becomes a part of you
For the grief that sliced you then
Well one day you’ll call it friend
Who sat with you in silence
And helped you reminisce
Of the good times, not the bad
But the best memories you had.
Ms Noma Mar 2020
I wish I could live it all over again
I wish I could feel you again on my skin
I wish I could fall for you all over again
I wish I could wall us in to stop from breaking
Even if it ended all the same
Even if it ended with more pain
Even if it still hurts to say your name
I’d still go through it all again
Ms Noma Dec 2019
Baby, you’re my butterfly
You flew into my palm
And raised your wings up to the sky
And hopped onto my arm

Baby, you’re my butterfly
You flew into my day
I looked upon you oh so shy
When you just came to play

Baby, you’re my butterfly
You flew into my heart
So quick I could not even try
To keep my love apart

Baby, you’re my butterfly
You flew into my life
But then your love for me did die
And so I sit and sigh

Baby, you’re a butterfly
You fly from place to place
Your favourite words farewell, goodbye
Then off to your next chase.

When autumn appears
It reminds me of you
I wish that it wouldn’t
But I’m glad it does too

Each leaf that I see
Red, orange or brown
Paints a picture in me
Of your smiles and your frown

The wind whistles by
To whisper your name
I wish up at the sky
For one last kiss in the rain.

why do i crumble
fall into pieces of
oats and sugar
something beautiful
in a white bowl, but
a mess on the floor
when i wake up
in an empty house
why do i wither like
brown leaves
under brand new and
borrowed boots atop
autumn sidewalks
when i’m alone,
i’m alone,
i’m alone
it is not enough
to eat breakfast
however small
to wash my hair with
coconut milk
to not step out into
the busy street;
i freeze before the ice
touches me
i do not allow
the chance to warm
my own hands
i lie down, on
***** sheets,
and wait for someone
to awaken me
