#PoeticJustice: The Lilies On The Table… x

The lilies on the table. X Thulisile Madi White like the gleam in my eyes, when I looked at the sun for too long,  That’s what it was like for me to love you for a second too long,  Blinding, and unwinding every grip my past lessons had over me,  Just for you and your heart, but you were never…
