"SILENCE SANG"

Raced low down,
Rode snails, slugs,
Robbed of crown,
Reigned on lungs.

Go, tell the devil,
'Light big flames',
Just got more evil, 
Bring your friends.

Dilemma talk, hush,
Run, chase the rush, 
Sword sliced tongue,
A song silence sang.

'Silence Sang'

"THE NEEDLE IN THE HAYSTACK"

Sometimes,
Finding the needle in the haystack,
Could mean, taking painful pricks,
It may hurt the flesh on our fingers,
And instill so much agony and pain, 
But, we will need the same needle,
To stitch up the wounds it caused,
Losing the needle means lost hope,
For our wounds, will remain open,
And so, fingers need to find strength,
To hold it and stitch themselves up, 
For I have come to understand that,
What brings pain is what takes it away.

'BATTLE OF THE MIGHTIES"

Battle of the mighties,
War, fighting dilemma,
Struggles peel doubts,
A little monsters' feast,
Pieces of thoughts leak,
Mind soaked in doubts,
Drip- out of skull, tears,
Drops of these emotions,
Flood veins weak heart,
Oh, this heart's hurt hurts,
For the brain or the heart.

"WORDS FREE US"

Every bone breaks,
Every muscle tears,
Souls keep the fears,
Hearts hold the dears.
It's words that free us.

"OUT EASY"

Walked,
Heavy head,
Fell sideways.

Skin stretched,
The fore-head,
To the toes.

False fetched,
Light sparked,
In the eyes.

Of my life out easy,
M.J Moon-Walking,
Out of stage.

"SOULS"

We care no more,
And if we do, it's not enough.
It's not well at all.

They just lie in our bodies, like long dead ghosts, 
Awaiting our death days, longing for our funerals, 
Just for other different people, to wish to them,
The peace that we're supposed to be giving to them.

'May that soul Rest In Peace.' They would mourn.

What if we gave our souls that same peace, 
While we still have it all, before it's all gone?

Maybe hell will be much less chaotic after all!

"QUESTIONS"

What is this deep feeling?
What am I telling myself?
What about the kneeling?
Why am I saving this self?
Why am I making prayers?
Why are they unanswered?
What's taking them years?
I deserve to be answered!

"IF"

If you missed the sun,
Wait up for the moon,
If mornings aren't fun,
Then play in the noon,
If it's a slow down run,
It will be ending soon,
If these songs are fun,
Then keep up the tune,
If you are a hand- gun,
That makes me a goon.

"If"

"ALL FOR LOVING YOU"

Late nights your little fingers,
Massage your phone's screen,
Typing me, those sweet texts,
In dark times, my soul lingers,
Disturbed, where have I been,
When sea waves, took depths,
You're a world on my fingers,
You're the best I've ever seen,
You're what my soul, reflects,
Pieces of me died to save you,
And all this, is for loving you.

"All For Loving You"

"MAN OVERBOARD"

You drove me crazy, but,
with no sense of direction,
Well I always fell for you,
Only, to hurt my feelings,
You always held my hand,
But left me lost in the dark,
You sang to me love songs,
That left my ears bleeding,
I gave you my little heart,
You gave me back regrets,
I have always sailed the ship,
You jumped into the waves,
I believed, in loving forever,
You believed in the moment.

"Man Overboard"

"A LITTLE SADNESS"

Sometimes, 
A little sadness,
Breeds happiness,
Trust me, this is,
A messed up place,
It's a damn mess, 
If these tears trace,
To a peaceful grace,
I'll keep up my pace!

"A Little Sadness"

"FLAME"

It is so dark in here,
My candle light's dim,
Flame sits on the string,
Dancing to my dear sobs,
My face buried in palms,
Tears run to my elbows,
If the flame flees, free,
I'll be lost, in darkness,
A phantom, a shadow.
"Flame"

"NO PROMISES"

My soul burns down,
Am hell burning down,
Talk to me, of heaven,
Preach all days, seven,
Tell me of those words,
Uniting the two worlds,
Show me life's meaning,
I mean all this breathing,
Believed, in what's said,
The price, my soul paid,
Hush baby, don't you cry,
No promises, but I'll try. 

"No Promises"
Drew Poetry

"LITTLE BIRD"

Don't wander my little bird,
Land on me, make me glad,
Make me your favorite twig,
Little bird, take my last fig,
On this wondrous love tree,
Build a nest and set me free.

"Little Bird"
Drew Poetry

"YOUR CHOICE"

Trust a light or blow the glow,
Grow into it, or slow the flow,
Take your body to its craving,
But all of your soul to heaven,
Follow the cries, or the voice,
Angels or ghosts, your choice!

"Your Choice"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha






"TELL THE WORLD"

Tell the world I said goodbye,
I just had to go find my way,
Tell the world I couldn't stay,
And watch it all, slip away,
Tell the world that am sorry,
I hope my tears told my story,
Tell the world that am gone,
Don't miss me when it's lone.  

"Tell The World"

"FIRE'S PRETTY"

Sink your emotions in ink,
My eyes crave for a drink,
Your words, oh, so sweet,
I listen with my tongue out,
Well that's an intended joke,
Fire's pretty, not the smoke.

"Fire Is Pretty"

"I AM POETRY"

Am so impatient, 
I walk up escalators,
Am the outpatient,
That treats doctors,
Am the same ink, 
That you're reading,
Am the same blink,
You thought blinding,
Am the bright little light,
Lighting up your tunnel,
I was once just a thought,
An emotion, just a feeling,
The happiness in sadness,
A print of life's footsteps,
Am a song, left unsung,
Lyrics without melody,
Am in you, I am poetry!

"I Am Poetry"

"A LITTLE INK ON PAPER"

These are the footsteps my pen left,
When it walked, down on this paper,
These were emotions crossing my mind,
Trapped them and caged them in a poem,
Intended to express my deep love to you,
Through these words, a little ink on paper,
Could have read it on my heart, with yours,
Made you a copy, just for your cute eyes.

"A Little Ink On Paper"

"TIME WILL DEPOSIT"

Time matured it into a mistake,
A memory, painful, hard to take,
A dream died, with honor, respect,
Died in the line of duty and respect,
Enclosed its ghost, in a dark closet,
It's the trash that time will deposit.

"Time Will Deposit"

"STRANGER LANGUAGE"

'Isn't it just so beautiful,
Meeting total strangers,
Sharing nothing together,
Not a common language,
Not even an understanding,
But, sharing a little smile,
Turns to sharing a language,
They can, or will understand...'

"Stranger Language"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha

"YOUR CREATION"

Smiles, only inhabitants to our world,
Frowns, strange aliens to our universe,
Creator to these lovely heavenly beings,
That's who you are, it's all your creation,
Made in your own loveliness and image,
They bow to you, worship their creator,
Created a smile, from it, created mine,
Told them, go on recreate, fill the world,
For you, my world is now full of smiles,
These little beings are all over our faces,
They're an all time ultimate feeling, love,
Happiness, joy, beauty and deep affection.

"Your Creation"

"I LOVE YOU"

I feel like love is...

Love... Is an art,
On hearts painted, 
Verbal masterpiece,
Everlasting piece.

Young hearts, of ours,
Owe that piece of love,
Us, how love is spelled.

"I Love You!"

POETIC TEMPTATION

Meet me nowhere, 
Wander feeds my soul,
Without Ink, write shit down,
With a sip, swallow down satan,
These pieces of longing, rain all day,
Velvet melodies, driblets of poetry.

"Poetic Temptation"

"I HOPE I MADE YOU SMILE"

You spend days, in my head,
And nights in my heart,
The food my soul loves to feed,
And, my eye's best art, 
You're God's best artistic style,
Love, I hope I made you smile:)

"I Hope I Made You Smile"

"THE NUT"

Just like coconuts,
Soft from the inside,
It'll make me go nuts,
You, leaving my side,
And living in my side,
Will buy me some guts,
To hold you by my side,
Darlin' just like coconuts,
Brown, from the outside,
But white from the inside,
Juice's, on the other side,
We'll have to crack the nut.

"The Nut"
Drew Poetry

"CORNERS"

Two sides to each of our stories,
Basically, that's four equal sides,
Perfectly, like Spongebob's pants,
Unlike the yellow guy, it's smiles,
That disguised, dark soul of yours,
A story in dark ink, full of worries,
Smiles hid behind narrations, wars,
We both stayed in our own corners,
Leaning, long, straightening edges,
We made a circle out of the corners,
Erased a small line, then out escapes,
Luck finding another corner of yours!

"Corners"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha




"FOOTSTEPS"

When we fell in love,
My heart was beating hard,
Those were your footsteps,
Walking into it!

If you'll ever walk away,
It will still beat the same way,
Those will be your footsteps,
Walking out of it!

If you leave, feet will crash it,
They'll print pain and break it!
I will allow no one to walk on it!
No feet, strides will ever fit yours!

"Footsteps"

"THE REFILL"

Throttle down, full, one hundred,
Switching, in lanes, one - handed,
A list full, loaded with what I hate,
But, just a single word for my fate!

Pounding heart syncs engine screams,
Realities flashing blinding my dreams,
Out of gas! Let's end this conversation,
Bye! Am out looking for a gas station!

"The Refill"
Drew Poetry

"FOR A DIME"

Growing up, means giving up, the kid in me,
Glowing up, men living up is just killing me,
The light at the end of the tunnel, is still bright,
The fight at the end didn't turn well, still right,
Am trying to crawl to the finish line, in time,
Am tying on a pole, a fishing line, for a dime.

For A Dime

"SLIPPING AWAY"

Let's put life away, for a minute,
It all flows to hell! Yes, I mean it!
Somewhere between our birthdays,
And destinations, we lost directions,
Dead citizens patriots to 'die nations',
It's all slipping away! Yes, I mean it!

"Slipping Away"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha

"IT'LL FADE AWAY"

Eventually,
Everything will fade away,
This grip will slip away,
That breath will be a tale,
That day will be history,
Those actions, a memory,
For, a day will come, when,
All is gone, and they'll say,
There once lived a man,
The history, tales, memories,
Will paint down the body,
The heart, spirit and soul!
But, till then, we are writing,
Authoring our tales, stories,
Exactly how they'll be told!

"It'll Fade Away"

"MOTH"

'Am a dark berry, you, just a berry,
Am a ship, you're just a rusty ferry,
I hold what you perceive imaginary,
Forgive me, I take guilt, I feel sorry,
Meant nothing, no despise intended,
Deep apologies, if greatly offended.'

That's what they told me, ugly lies,
I was a moth, they were butterflies,
Well, someone once said time flies,
Yes! It is flying me, to my dreams,
Watch the moth fly to the extremes,
Life is dust! Not like what it seems!

"Moth"

"GOOSE BUMPS"

I want to touch you,
Purely, with words,
Plant goose bumps,
On your fertile skin, 
Only with my voice.

I want to weed out,
Gently, with kisses,
Then, harvest them,
Those juicy bumps, 
My body, your skin.

"Goose Bumps"

"FOR THE LOVE LIFE OF OURS"

We left our umbrellas,
To share, together ours,
We can dare the storms, 
Fight, survive, all years,
What's for two, endures,
All tears, pain and wars,
Truly, locked our doors,
Gathered enough for us,
For the love life of ours.

"For The Love Life Of Ours"

"HER HUG"

We stood, 
lost in eachother's stares... then...,

"...She hugged me. Her little head,
against my chest...

...Embracingly,
her arms gently, swirled and whirled,
brushing all over, around my body,
gripping hard on my cloth hems...

...My arms, reaching out,
extend to her, taking in and absorbing,
her cute, lovely, little body...

...My head lowers, so I could
smell her, sweetly fragranced,
beautiful hair. Looking up, she,
smiles, then tightly sinks her
face into my chest...

Her lips,
whisper into my palpitating
heart. She says to it a little secret,
looks up once more and smiles...

And in that very moment,
We felt closer than ever before!
We became part to eachother...

...We felt,
at home, complete and in love!"

"Her Hug"

"SIN"

Pleasure,
Zero in measure,
Night soaked in sin.

Leisure,
Zero in treasure,
Right locked in skin. 

"Sin"

"DRIFTING AWAY"

Please let me go, am not worth the stay,
I took the blow, well, am worth the slay,
You'd never show, but I've been the prey,
Snow-cold we grew, petals became grey,
Tried to leave before, convinced, to stay,
Please let me go, let me out the doorway,
The fading glow, know am drifting away! 

"Drifting Away"
 Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha





"DEEP DOWN"

I had to get my emotions right, to put this down,
Words watch emoticons fight! Yes! Am a clown!
O, damn it! No single word or even a single noun, 
Will ever be worth the monster in me, deep down! 

"Deep Down"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha

"MARRY MERRY"

Ecstasy, overwhelming joy, glory,
Fantasy, Oh darling toy, sad story,
Legacy, gnarling destroy, it's chary,
Ultimacy, loving cloy, marry merry.

"Marry Merry"

"FOR YOU"

You must be the star that led the three wise men,
You lead me in poetry, much wisdom on my pen,
You, the reason mum suffered in labour back then,
For you, I thank her for the gift that she gave you,
For you, I will love and heart, always staying true,
For you love, I'll be the man you've always knew.

"For You"
Drew Poetry
~Andy Mwalasha



"CUP OF COFFEE"

She's my cup of coffee,
Rich warmth, mornings,
She's sweeter than toffee,
A touch possessing ease.

Moon made love to, night, 
She, the offspring, my star,
My true love, my true light,
My soul mate, a soul sister.

"Cup Of Coffee"

"SOUL MOURNS"

Image
The little spark you lit in my heart, Was what burned my soul down! The smoke, you once pointed at, Saying, 'We are love set on fire!' That was my soul burning down!
Remember your ear on my chest? And the rock fierce hard beatings? That was my heart breaking down! We went down the same road, You drove on the pavements! I had to stop living my dreams, Just to live your hard realities! Damn! Doing things your way, Was always, the only best way!
Yes! You're a heartless goon, Hired to kill, all my dreams, Kill me instead! Spare them! Came out of the womb alone, Convinced me, I couldn't live,  Without you in my damn life!
You were my best, I spent my all, Then realised, I was damn stupid! All the best things in life, are free! Stole my worth, gave me emptiness, Torn and tattered my lips with kisses, 'The truth will set you free', you'd say, But it imprisoned me into depression! Oh! Wasn't it supposed to set me free?
"Soul Mourns"
