The Wonderess Jul 19
When I’m there
You don’t care
But when I’m away
You beg me to stay

I may be known
For my enduring loyalty
But you’ll be left alone
If you don’t value me…

Where did I go?
The Wonderess Jul 18
Who is this familiar stranger
Staring back at me in the
Cracked mirror?

I swear I’ve know her my whole life
Yet, I cannot seem to recognise
The person behind those
Dull blue eyes …

Where did she go?
Will I ever know?
I hope she won’t be lost for long
I’m not sure how much longer
I’ll be able to hold on…

Her Anatomy is Astronomy
The Wonderess Jul 16
Her Anatomy is Astrology

With her starry eyes
She’ll lure you in
Her gaze giving you
A glimpse of
The galaxy within

Her miraculous mind is an
incredible constellation
Glistening with dreams,
Painted with imagination

Her soul shines brighter
Than Luna’s light
She’s as honest as the day
And mysterious as the night…

My Heart Is My Home
The Wonderess Jul 10
The road back to myself
Was no easy one to walk
I often veered off course
According to their talk

For I was given false directions
By a friend(ly) stranger along the way
Or blindly followed in the darkness
One that I trusted who lead me astray

I stumbled, oh I stumbled hard
But with each significant blow
Something in me awakened,
I was taught a lesson I needed to know

Then came a day when I became
A true traveller: Both bold and wise
I trusted my instincts by
Setting alight their atlas of lies

I followed then a road, determined
By what my soul yearned for
(a kind of love and acceptance)
Not found at another’s door

I came to discover that I needn’t
Cross far lands and sail the seas...
I was far, yet so very close
To the place where I wanted to be

And when I found myself again,
Tears of joy trickled down my face
As I embraced her, I knew their
Was no destination like this place

Mighty is She
The Wonderess Jul 10
You have fallen from
A few’s favour
This is not your fall
From grace

When others consider
It a sin, to take up
Your God given
Space

Worship not the words
Of serpent tongues
That spit only
Lies

By bending to their will
you’ll become the
Failure that they
Prophesize

My dear you are of
Of the heavens ,
Created to serve a
Devine Purpose

Never forget, you were
Not born to bow or
Bend, but to
Achieve greatness!

Pleasure and Pain
Your hands will burn
When you dare
Capture her
Flame

She is not yours to possess,
Her passion is not yours
To claim…
My friends are few
And my foes are plenty
I am adored by some
And despised by many

But what does this matter?
Oh, I’ve set my soul free
And I’m at peace when
I can be myself , unapologetically.

Revenge Is Not Mine
The Wonderess Jul 2020
I shall no longer be
Diminished and disturbed
For The Devine is not blind,
What’s unsaid is indeed heard.

Perhaps justice will not
Be soon served,
But the day will come
When they get what they
Deserve...

My past does not define me!
The Wonderess Jul 2020
Like my past I have
Buried her,
She is decomposing
She is Dead,

I will no longer carry
Her corpse with me,
But renew my soul
By moving on ahead!
The Wonderess Jul 2020
We were soaring,
But the rain
Was pouring

Foolishly flying,
Whilst the sky
Was crying

Deaf to the thunder,
As she cursed
Our every blunder

We refused to heed,
though the
Lightening did plead

And past the shroud,
Of ominous
Black clouds

Impulsively persisted,
Despite how the
universe resisted

Both arrogant and reckless,
Mimicking the
Dear Icarus

A painful lesson,
Was to follow
Our transgression

We were caught in
A tumult and it was
Our own fault

But you left me there, Alone
To fight the storm
On my own...

Plummeting into the sea
My melted wings could
Not carry me

My heart drowned in
The cold, cold ocean
I paid the price of my
Blind love and
Devotion.

Who’s at fault ?
The Wonderess Jul 2020
It is not my fault
That you sunk your teeth
So deep into the softest
Parts of me

It is not my fault that
I chose to stick around
For you to run me into
The ground

It is not my fault that
My barriers were low
And that I struggled
To establish my: No!

It’s not my fault that
You manipulated my mind
Into believing that everything
Was normal and fine

It is not my fault that
I refused to see
How you violated and
Took advantage of me...

Ocean Eyes
The Wonderess Jul 2020
Don’t be fooled by his
Ocean blue eyes
Hidden beyond them
Is a seabed of lies

Don’t be fooled by
Those ocean blue eyes
That with a blink will
Blacken your skies

Don’t be fooled by those
Ocean blue eyes:
The monster wears a
Handsome disguise

Through & Through
The Wonderess Jun 2020
I know this now
And so should
You

All that I’ve endured
And been put
Through

But don’t you try
No, don’t you
Dare !

To tell me that
I shouldn’t go
There

That this was my doing,
I should’ve known not
To

For you don’t have
A clue what I’ve been
Through

I wouldn’t simply
Sign my happiness
Away

Sell my soul to the
Devil on bright sunny
Day

What I condoned,
I so deeply
Condemned

So, why did this
Not stop me
Then?

Perhaps I did not
Think that I
Deserved

More than the poor
Treatment I was
Served

I cannot explain my
Mind: so
Incomprehensible

And you say I should’ve
Been more
Sensible

But until you have
Trudged in my
Shoes

Shut your mouth
Withhold your
Views

I did not know
How to nurture
Myself

At the time I
Needed the
Help

That “sweet” care
he gave went a
Long way

I was blind when
I let myself be led
Astray

And I gave and
I gave so
Abundantly

Only to become
The epitome of
Redundancy

To be loved was
My most burning
Need

So much so, that I tried
To satisfy his
Greed?

You stone and shun
Me with your
Shame

You brutally tell me
That I am to
Blame

But my dear, until you
Know what I’ve been
Through

Respect me, for one day
It might be
You...

Don’t let dreams die
The Wonderess Jun 2020
If only you possessed
The power
To see

All that you are and
All that you’ll
Be

Tell me, what is sight
Without the sense of
Perception?

What good is imagination
Without any
Invention?

Thus, hold onto your hopes
For glorious days
Lay ahead

One cannot follow
Dreams that are
Dead

And do not think
Your vast visions
To be foolish

For many wondrous things
Did begin with
A wish...
The Wonderess Jun 2020

when someone that you
love does this

Remember to Forget
The Wonderess Jun 2020
i have come to rely
On my daily
Cigarette

to help me remember
what i wish to
forget

see it’s a bittersweet habit
just like your
Were

i’m better off without it
But that’s not what
i prefer...

i don’t like the smell
or the habit you
see

But it’s the only thing
keeping you close
to me.

Her fervent love is not
To be paralyzed

She is everything and
So much more...
She’s not hard to love

Beyond
The Wonderess May 2020
If only you could understand,
How you held my heart
When you held
My hand

Your touches travelled past my skin
They shook my soul
So deep
Within

You moved more than my body
I shared with you
Every last part
Of me

Yet you cannot comprehend
My pain when my lover
Told me, I’m only
A friend

You could have said it before
You let me believe that
I am so much
More...

I am broken, now beyond repair
As you continue
Without a
Care

Although I’m angered I’ll never wish
For anyone to ever
Hurt you
Like this

It takes a different kind of cruel
To take someone who
Loves you for a
Fool...

Angel’s Adieu
The Wonderess May 2020
May you, so passionate, rest in peace
May your humble heart be at ease
And heaven shall surely in you pleasure find
Remember me, I beg, I’m not too far behind

I pray that in your soul I’m cherished
While I’m in my purgatory, perished
Each day is a weight that I cannot bear
The load of your loss is my dispair

And as you, Saint, God’s abode adorn
Below is besmirched as I mourn
Awaiting the time we will reunite
And this darkness will turn to light

So unfathomable is my pain
Like a law that has been profaned
It gnaws alway inside, the unremitting beast
I witness myself ******* more with every feast

As my mind ponders and I gaze forlorn
A trickle of hope and delight is born
I’m certain you have God’s fondness gained
As you in my favor have always remained

Empowered I commence journ with faith/hope
And search for your colors in life’s kaleidoscope...

Phases of her Moon

Sister,
You are like
The magnificent
Moon

When you feel
Your power waning
Know it will be restored
To it’s fullness soon...
The Wonderess May 2020
I am lost for words,
As I am lost for love
I cry out aloud,
Seeking guidance from above

Do you hear me Great Spirit
When I painfully cry out?
Perhaps you too are deaf,
To everything I shout

Do you see my sorrow
Or do my tears evaporate
Maybe, I am scorned by you
As the others me hate

I am created from dust,
They remind me everyday
Their words like a hurricane,
Blow my hope away

Yet here I am before you,
Pleading yet again
Release me from this anguish
And from all of them

Monsters lurk amongst us
We become their slaves
We nominate them as leaders:
They lead us to our graves

Insignificant are the powerless
To the tyrants who roam around
The strong only grow stronger
Trodding the weak into the ground.

We are meant to be equals
Everyone, you and I;
Being born and raised
Under the same sky

Yet we are treated
So differently...
Tell me, where is the
Human in Humanity?
To quote Jimi Hendrix, when the power of love overcomes the love of power then the world shall know peace.

The Irony of Intimacy
The Wonderess May 2020
Something powerful lingered
Between our interlaced
Fingers

I was ever so softly shocked
When our hands were
Interlocked

Your kiss like a lightening bolt
Struck my heart to a
Halt

I was electrocuted by your eyes
When I at last removed my
Disguise

And finally I resigned to my urge
, to feel this current through me
Surge

Two bodies fused into one...
But the current did not
Come?

And empty was the ecstasy
That belonged only to my
Body

I stared at your blank face
And realized what was
Taking place

You were devoid of feeling,
This had no deeper
Meaning.

You had extinguished our flame
My sacrifice was all in
Vain!

I sought a golden shine
And let you enter my
Soul and shrine

Now I’m left tainted and torn
I wish you’d have me
Warned

That you never intended to ignite
Our love with your false
Light

I was fooled and gave my trust
To a devil derived from
Lust.

Love is indeed blind
Unable to recognize
It’s own kind

*** and intimacy are far apart
You wanted my body
Not my heart.
Sometimes we are mislead by people who pretend to love us in our entirety when indeed all they’re after is our body. In my life I’ve learnt some hard  lessons and one of them was to distinguish between love/intimacy and ***. I was tricked and payed the price, so I thought I’d try and describe this experience to you.
The Wonderess May 2020
i wrote You a story,
with meticulous care
praised your great glory
with  flaws,so blatant, there

i drew You a picture
with such precision
magnified Your stature
according to my vision

You wrote me a story
with malicious intent
what i failed to foresee
i could not prevent

You drew me a picture
dedicated to your desire
i didn’t recognize her
the witch  in Your fire

i told myself our story
The one You wouldn’t hear
what a fantastic fantasy
that seemed so sincere

i admired our picture
the one you wouldn’t see
an angel, called Lucifer
stared back at me


I’m writing myself a story
incase it interests you
a kind of an allegory
to get the message through

I’m drawing myself a picture
in case it crossed your mind
always confusing sin with scripture
I wonder what meaning you’ll find

I’ve written myself a story
and drawn myself a picture
where  I’m freed from your purgatory
and have emerged a victor...
Sometimes people make as though we are unable or unwilling to love yet  they and others have treated us in a way that has made us so apprehensive to lend our hearts out. Love is a two way street...
