Alone

His Fiance said goodbye today,


This life was not for her,

she left with barely a hug

her loss she could not bare.



He tried to talk

He tried to reason

He tried to beg

He even broke down and cried



Her friends say she has changed

her clothes,

her hair

her makeup,

these are all on the outside new

but inside she has darkened,

hardened,

steeled her heart against feeling.



She wants a new life

not happy with the old

She wants adventure now

thier happy five years have faded



Maybe she has cheated,

(TELL ME PLEASE)

But she will not confess



Maybe she has started using drugs

(God know the signs are there)

But she says no



All she wants is her freedom.

her indepandance

(but she is moving back with her parents)

She wants fun

(a promotion and more work is not the way)

her home town calls for her

(but she left it because she hated it)



So confused.



The big cities bright light

it reels her in

She is leaving him now

to explore on a whim

the lights of her past,

the fun,

the laughter,



But did they not have that,

He did everything for her

For nothing did she want

He loved her intensely

In April they would have wed



Now the winter looks bleak for,

His heart, it has a hole.

inside that whole is a block of ice

freezing his very soul.



He yearns for her

night and day

and even in those inbetween times

when night and day greet and part ways.

He yearns for her with all his being,

His heart has no more blood keep it warm.



This is the end of life



I am now truly



Alone





(in memorium of lost love)

So needless to say its brolli time here for most of January...not our normal weather, is it? Movie 2012 comes to mind ( a movie in which I had a constant feeling of "I need to pee")here. We better start making plans to move to higher ground. I think i am going to grow some fins and gills , just in case.

Aaaaanyway I suppose its good coffee weather, so I am going to have another cup, third one so far this morning. Have a good one out there guys.

Litter everywhere

We have these amazing people her in Durban, dressed in orange designer overalls that do a tremenous job of cleaning up our streets. Especially after the holidays, when so many visiting tourists flock to the streets in busses and taxis and make a ginormous mess of the beaches and parking areas. I say a big thanks to these orange clad heroes and heroines as the brave the mess that surrounds them. What would our streets be without these good people. Is it so hard for visitors to just throw the rubbish in the bins provided by the municipality, or even keep a plastic bag in all your baggage just for the rubbish, to be dispersed of later.


Another pet hate of mine is: Dumping rubbish out of the car while driving. I detest this so much. I have become quite agressive about this, as far to many people do this too easily. Wrappers from sweets, cans, cigarette buts all come flying out the car window, not a care for environment which we all are desperatly trying to save or for the people in cars behind who have to dodge whatever may be flying at travelling speed at them.


Case in point-

The other day I stopped at a traffic light, and to my right a ute with a whole load of matresses was stopped, all waiting for the light to change. Then, low and behold the passenger door opens a crack and a hand sneaks out and gently places an empty beer can on the ground next to the ute. And the hand is withdrawn and the door closes. Well that was it...I lay on the hooter. I could see the persons face in the utes left hand mirror looking back at me.


I show my hands as if to say "and now?". It worked. This time the door opened fast and wide and the hand grapped the can back in and then went up in appology. Thank you mattress delivery man for actually picking up your rubbish. (I figure he just went to the next robot and dropped it there.)

If you have rubbish keep it in your friggin car till you get home. That is why every car has an ash tray....to put the ash and butts and wrappers in. Not the roads and streets.


I think if more of us did this then we could all contribute to cleaner sidewalks and roads.
