Eyeliner lips: You've Been Crying

Hey, you're fine. You're more than fine, you're magic. They don't know what they are missing out on. The only person who matters will come in time. I know, you're going out of your mind waiting to meet him. He feels the same. He thinks he knows what it'll be like to meet you, to know know you and to love you. He thinks he knows what it's going to be like to be loved by you. He has no idea. He's running as fast as he can just to have his world turned on its head and for everything he thought he knew to change meaning. He sees you in the crescendos of all the songs he knows were written about you. He is always moved to realise that he's not the only mad one. even poets who've never met you channel you in verses. 
You are fine.
You are magic.
- Scott.

My Conception of Love

Photobucket

Jada
u r the omega of my heart

the foundation of my conception of love
when i think of what a black woman should be
its u that i first think of

u will never fully understand
how deeply my heart feels 4 u
i worry that we'll grow apart
and i'll end up losing u

u bring me 2 climax without sex
and u do it all with regal grace
u r my heart in human form
a friend i could never replace

So, according to the USTA playing tennis and playing it so well you become a reigning World number 1  junior girls tennis player does not fitness make. SMDH. Here is an article on this fuckery. Thank the universe for women like Taylor's mum; women who don't bend in the face of stupidity and bureaucracy.

Loner Seeks Haunt

Photobucket Photobucket As I type this I'm on my second taxi on the way back to where I live from a job at which I am shit, so you can imagine the mood. Lana Del Rey's in my ears and my LED light is going off, alerting me to a whatsapp text . I'll get where I stay and take my shoes off and continue to idle. Today has been a crap day so I don't mind that the most I have to look forward to is my bed and an episode of the Cosby Show.

There are however, days I wish I had a spot to go to. To sit in the corner with Lana Del Rey in my ear and text messages. A place to which I can take my recently acquired volume of Beloved by Toni Morrison, which is currently on top of my mother's wardrobe. A place at which I can sit for hours and watch people while ducking awkward conversations with the staff.

My haunt must have great views, nope I'm not talking Sandton skylines, I mean big windows through which I can see the city go on about its business. Through which I can watch couples on dates, hipsters and dudes carrying man bags and bags belonging to the women they're with.

I'm not much of a drinker and my childhood experiences with drunk people have me wary of drunk strangers. With that said, I would like a sip of the new Castle Draught. I saw a can of it recently and it looked like something I'd like to taste. So, an option to down one those will be to me what an extra star is to food connoisseurs.

I'm also very fond of live performances (in theory, of course) and I don't think I'd mind if the spot I chose has an occasional music or spoken word set.

A good burger and red velvet cake are the only menu requirements I have. A friendly but appropriate staff that'll let me borrow pencils is the equivalent of another star.

Maybe I'll take the search to the streets, if you know of any good spots in JHB CBD, Braam and Soweto that have minimal hipster activity, please do share.

As Madame Rosmerta should have said: "The witch or wizard doesn't choose the haunt, the haunt chooses the witch or wizard."
