Thato Angela Chuma – Love For Me

Love For Me

There is a love for me
A love wrapped in old prayer
A love tucked in my lungs like breath

There is a love I was pulled from
A dust of stories
A wind of rapture
A cunning song that leads the darkest night to its dawn

Love
Crowds my tongue
It weaves a new language
It carries itself in the scent of a new day
