South African born poet staying in Bloemfontein. Author of Shades of romance an anthology of 67 poems referred to as shades that shield and protect romance. An avid and willing to learn writer for the purpose of impacting our world positively. I have since taken pleasure in performing my poetry which is inspiring me to write more material relevant to current events. Poetry provided me an escape route when I was challenged with lies that nearly destroyed my life. Sometimes the words we write and speak become to complicated for us to decode them as they are an echo of the soul connecting us to divinity not visible to the canal mind. I'm a fitness fanatic who meditates and exercise on a daily basis. One day I would love to perform my poetry to a full Wembley stadium. I am kind, loving, caring and industrious always seeing beauty in humanity's quest to better our world.


A Hungry Hunger Now I know How hunger feels To be hungrier Than hungry Scared I am Of a yearning Only one being Can satisfy Absence so glaring Sends roar of groans To stomach protruding Nothing edible Seems to sink in As hunger Of a special kind erupts For menu Of your poise Crying out it keeps on So much I have eaten Yet hunger pangs cramp Wall stomach To edges of my back Can’t help but crack As if to choke pummelled Feeling like this Never have I felt Life becomes hard When your absence Invokes feelings like I am carrying On my shoulders tiny Tons of ground I am walking on Feels like being buried Face down with eyes wide open In screams melancholic Beneath necropolis Love of my heart You will always be For without appetite Of your divine presence Forever a pain I will carry Of a hungry hunger
