Two poems by Londiwe Majozi


Be there
Being there
Meaning much
And nothing

I’ll be there.
There for you.
I’m here
Where is here?

Am I there?
Where are you?
Not with me. Not here.
So where?
Not here.
Maybe there.

But not here.




Because I love you
Because you tempt me
Because you stole me
Because I promised
Because you saw
And I knew you watched

And then you lied

Because you comfort me
Because you hide me
And you assure me
Every day I’m asking:

Is why I stay.
