How do I get back up

Like shattered pieces of glass scattered, my bare feet press against you.
You pierce my skin so deep it cuts my heart – I bleed.
Lodged into my feet you inflict pain with every step – I surrender.
My stride is broken, so to my knees I fall – I crawl.
But even on my knees I still feel you.

How do I get back up?

– Mamello Maitse

See inside my soul

Look into my eyes
See inside my soul
Tell me…
Do you see what I see?
I am bare before you…
Lose yourself inside me
Don’t fight these raging waves that pull you in
You’re safe in my storm
Drown in this sea of intensity
Drink my love
Breathe my passion…
See inside my soul
Clothe this naked heart.
