Beautiful Imperfections.

Beautiful Imperfections I

 

I know your flaws and errors

You are rough, vulgar

And don’t like sleeping alone

You are insecure when it matters

And even though you say I’m great

I feel you deserve better

And the first time we made love

It became evident

I’m now a resident

Trapped in your hearts abode

 

Started with a text from someone who shouldn’t have noticed me

And a response she should have never received

A few pictures back and forth,

Some clothes on, some clothes off

Plans of toes in the sand

You and I holding hands

But even though we knew we weren’t meant to be

We refuse to understand

 

Where there is smoke, there’s fire

So let’s seek flames the flames our sparks created

And burn in the hell made from our sins

Live in the prison we created when we decided to fall while we belonged to others

Like fallen angels, you clipped your wings and made yourself a harlot

And I bear my soul to you instead of she who stood by me through a lot

 

We love after hours

Take secret showers

Feed off of cooked up lies we tell them to convince them that we are faithful

When I doubt the viability of our actions

You tell me it would be justified if she were more grateful

And when you wonder if we should continue

I pull your pants down and remind you size matters

And you recommit to our promises of temporary forevers

 

Subconsciously we both know what we doing is wrong

But right now we can’t spell the word adultery

It no longer registers in our vocabulary

We’re too busy with delusions of marriage,

future plans and making a baby…

 

To be continued…

– Jaded Words

 

Found

Vows taken, vows broken

He smelt like summer rain and coffee stains to my art

His skin, a rare view of god walking the earth

Only he were not mine

Only he were not mine, yet

Mine touched me and I wished it was him

Mine held me and I wished it were him

I have found an antidote to sedate my raging wolf

If only it belonged to me

 

You touch my face, when he touched my soul

Without putting his hands on me

He served me swords with his words

Swords I used to stab us apart

 

You ask me what you can do to make it better

Tell me he will never leave his wife for another

Tell me you’re the only champion I afford

I watch you cry at the bottom of our staircase

Questioning where we went wrong

Between your ‘business trips’ and dinner meetings

My artistic nature was far too inconveniencing for you

I call our bed a canvas for our love art

You call it a bed and tell me to be less, what was it?

Less weird . . .

Called me too grown to be speaking in metaphors

 

Text messages

Homemade videos

Long phone calls

While you were on the phone with Toronto

Forgetting you had a wife to get to

 

Vows taken, vows broken

He filled voids beyond the physical

You kiss me, I kiss him

You touch me, I wish it is him

I am found, I have found

He isn’t you

DJ and Producer S-Frequency  is undoubtedly mixing his way up and ready to transform the music Industry. His undying passion and discipline in his craft is inspiring. He shares with us what keeps him a creative on the move.

“I fell in love with music in 2004 listening to different DJ compilations of Mzansi DJ’s. A lot of vibey venues in Joburg inspired me to DJ and having to see a crowd dance to your music is motivating for me. I define myself as a mixologist. When you DJ you get to realize that you’re not only in control of people’s music, but in control of their emotions subconsciously. I would advise young up and coming Producers and DJ’s to have real passion for what they do, and to always stay motivated and disciplined.” – S-Frequency

Untold Secrets.

untoldsecretsfinalpost

I recently came across the most disturbing thing in my life, and when I refer to my life I am basically talking about my family life. Untold secrets.

You know how you would meet new people almost every day? Recently I just met this guy through a friend. What we had in common was that we listen to the same music, and this helps us to get along so well. In the process of getting to know each other, I got to know that he actually has been stalking me all along. I really had no idea that he has been following me behind.

Before knowing that, we once went out for a luncheon, around town. As we were having our conversation, I got to realise that he knows a lot about my family that I actually don’t. He started talking about some of the things that I have no idea about.

Most of them I really cannot disclose them, I feel like they are family matters. But what I have noticed is that, if I were to disclose them to my family, they could perhaps divide us, deter our relationship as a family and freeze the development on each one of us. There’s no question that family secrets are destructive, but it matters mightily when and how you reveal them, I tried to resist the temptation to handle them at transition times. In my own experience, however, has shown me that telling secrets in the wrong way or at the wrong time can be remarkably painful and hurtful.

The questions we need to concern ourselves with are, how do I tell a secret without hurting anyone? How do I know that the time is right? I have learned the answers as I’ve witnessed-sometimes with terror, more often with joy, and always with deep respect-families making the courageous journey from secrecy to openness.

I got to learn that secrets are kept or opened for many complex motives, from self-serving abuses of power to altruistic protection of others. Understanding the best ways and situations in which to reveal a family secret can help you decide when and how to do so.

Secrets sabotage, although we encounter secrets in every area of life, they are perhaps most destructive when kept in the home. Families are our support systems, our identity and ability to form close relationships with others depend upon the trust and communication we feel with loved ones. If family members keep secrets from each other or from the outside world, the emotional fallout can last a lifetime.
