I am not a stalker I just love deeply

It had been days since the break up. I was to scared to even look at my phone, the calls, the messages, heartfelt apologies, questions and of cause everyone saying how they had hated her and known she wasn’t the right person for me. I didn’t care, all I wanted was her. Even when they were telling me about how

The crack house takes another victim

Stale cigarettes and a mouth that tasted like he had used it to filter all the water in Ganges river, not exactly the best way to start a morning. But even that was better than the 196 screaming miniature gnomes that had taken residence in his brain and proceeded to drill holes into his Occipital lobe. As far as mornings

“This has definitely been the best day of my life, ” Mzi thought to himself as he played on the stoep with his new birthday present. It was a black batmobile. He was the only boy in the street with a toy let alone a remote controlled car. And it was the batmobile? His brothers had really outdone themselves. First

Beep

Beep, beep, beep…that’s the first sound she heard when she woke up. Rubbing her eyes and willing things to take shape, she couldn’t recognise the sound. Beep, beep, beep…rhythmic, subdued, counting…beep, beep, beep. Next to hit her was the smell, it was hard, cutting, slashing across her nostrils leaving bloody streaks down her now awakening mind. Beep, beep, beep…her neck

The Last Night

With his face in the mud, his car getting ransacked and a gun pointed at his head, Mzi could not help laughing. To think that less than an hour ago he had been sitting with a lovely lady enjoying a quick drink before leaving for home. Living in a little village you will be safe, at least that’s what he

Standing on an Icy roof in the middle of nowhere in Uijongbu, he had not expected this call. In fact he had just stepped out of the dodgiest club he had ever been in just to answer this call. The call had come just as one of the waitresses had come over to their table to suggest he take one

The weights we carry

“Is it heavy?” Phumi asked as he carried her suitcase onto the bus.  He wasn’t sure if she was asking because she cared or whether she was just trying to be polite, to not seem like the demanding girlfriend that needs everything done for her. He didn’t mind it the weight it was negligible, it wasn’t the heaviest thing he

I got to write. I got to write! I GOT TO WRITE! The thought kept going on and on in his mind. I got to write. What should I write about? I can write about… how could this have happened? We were finally connecting. How could it have gone that way?It was going so well. Delicious dinner, passionate lovemaking then

Another Night, Another Sandwich in the Shower

“Another night, another sandwich in the shower,” thought Mzi with lustful eyes as he stared at the two women in his bed. Of course, he knew that he didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of even touching one of them. After all, they were friends and had made it very clear that tonight was purely platonic. Mzi wished with
