Lockup letter

Interesting that the number of suicides in South Africa has not been mentioned anywhere but it has been confirmed from a reliable source in the crime scene cleanup industry that their cleanups after suicides have increased drastically.

covet

The world feels empty right now
like a house fallen down
We are on the edge of something new
will it be born from darkness into the light
or will it be darkness reborn

the world feels ruined right now
a fallen house
how long until we recover
something is coming, be it a glimpse
of new heaven or hell

the doomsayers quote revelation
and locked up, the world looks out
on a blue sky
and wonder about cures and jobs
heaven can wait
we must survive now.

and we covet the old days
because the world will never be the same.

My heart is broken not for the plenty but for the poor, Lees voort “Broken down”

counting all the ghosts…

counting all the ghosts...

Days are stretching out
never seem to end
melancholy bleeds like water Lees voort “counting all the ghosts…”

Buite

 

Buite, waar ek in gemaskerde stilte beweeg tussen lewende dooies…

iemand nies en sommige mense kry verskrikte kyke op hulle gesigte… Lees voort “Buite”

The Curse of Age

“The streets have eyes and sometimes bigger mouths” Batman and Robin issue 005 (New 52)

Places where you build memories went bankrupt or were broken down. You ride down a street and a new building stands on a place where you remember you had happy memories. A place where you never experience similar days and events. A wistful longing for familiar faces, or to hear that specific song in that place just once again. To see a good friend just once more that died, a friend perhaps that died all too young and left you in the world getting old without him or her.

You get new memories and new places as you grow older but some places and people are phantoms. The curse of age are those, now abandoned places, of the mind…
