Sorry by Rudorwashe Kanukamwe

For all the cold hearted words
I said,
For all the tears you shed,
For all the time you spent,
in misery
Now I realize,

I never should have treated
You the way I did
I never should have hurt
you the way I did,
I wasn’t sure until I knew it,
Now I realize,
Where anger ends,
forgiveness begins,
to forgive,
Is to set  two prisoners free,
you and me
I am sorry.

Adiós by Tsitsi Gumbo

Image -

heart on lap
bloody heart
my own heart
I let you do it
I held your knifed hand
each deep thrust, I saw..

it beats still....
feeble quiet beats
at least it beats...
and grow they will
my heartbeats...
you'll hear them
only from a distance
never again in your hands.

bye bye heartbreaker!
