PICK UP AND KILL IT
S.I.P.H.O.S.I.H.L.E vs EDDINGTON
As a deer longs for a stream,
Of cool waters,
So, I long for you,
My heart be in exile,
Longing for your touch.
While I slept,
It was awake
Forever ready to let you in
The moment you knock.
Dudu! Dudu! pounds my lonesome heart,
My lungs and kidneys are doing a ping pong.
Please let me in.
My heart sings your song,
For your touch I long.
Ungtshaye ding dong.
WINNIE vs ZWELI
There seems to be a drummer nearer,
Pounding the drum as if it holds her deary life,
How come it ain't stopping?
Too long have we been hearing it,
Seems like it only gets to be pounded when that face appears.
Sinfully sexy and deliciously irresistible;
The man of her dreams.
Too loud is the heartbeat, it even surpasses that of a drummer,
And it's only waiting for him,
The soother, to come and make it shut with his untainted love.
I see your beauty shining,
In the beautiful night,
I see your body drenched,
In the pristine moonlight.
How did I get so lucky, I wonder?
As loving you feels so right.
T. O. D. Q. vs Mr. STAR
[T. O. D. Q.]
I first knew Him before I met Him.
Defined as a perfectly moulded figure, fit and slim,
A soul with amazing charisma and a mind-blowing grin.
And His alluring caramel, silky, smooth skin.
The day came when the heavens graced me with His face.
I have never been the type of person to be easily impressed but in this case,
He invaded my mind, my heart, I suddenly felt claustrophobic in an open space!
I couldn't breathe, think or speak,
He was extremely breath taking and intelligent it made me weak.
I instantly needed to be beautiful, focused, brave and sleek.
I told you before.
Even if preachers won't agree.
The beginning of me was the love.
The love which breathes within your cages.
I am not Romeo
But like him I'm ready to drink the concoction.
Just to make sure you live.
I am into you and that's a fact.
CHICHIE-THE POETIC QUEEN vs FARH
[Chichie-the Poetic Queen]
My mind is a calm chaos filled with reflections of you.
It still desists from letting go of you.
Still drawn closer.
This love is suffocating.
Your presence is intoxicating.
The sight of you is breath-taking.
The sound of your voice is mesmerizing.
I want to be drawn into your tight embrace.
Look into your eyes as we converse.
Feel the wind in my hair.
Get lost into your being.
Whilst you softly sing.
I was drawn by your body before I saw your beauty.
And there after I was intoxicated by your voice.
When I got close to know you, I fell for you that very instant.
Wangithathekisa ngahle ngazithukuza phakathi kothando.
Amehlo amhlophe agcwele uthando.
I was a mighty warrior but I was slain by you and you did not use no weapon.
Now I lean on you like you are my life force.
For without you I shall surely die.
THE BROKEN POET vs RUTHLESS_INC
Angaz ukuth yini nokubana kusani,
Bengicel' umzuzwana wexesha lakho,
I promise you I am neither a stalker or a psycho,
Ngiyimbongikazi esindwa ngamagama,
Allow me to hit you with a few words.
Ithi ndik'xelel' indatshana yakwa love,
Engafanelang' ukwaziwa yilabolova,
Kukhon' okuphithizelay' apha kum,
Ngivumela ngikubize baba,
Ngoba Xa ndikubuk' ebusweni,
Kalokh' isiyezi sing'velele,
Mhlambe ndizalambele nje,
Ngamehl'akho asis'hogo esihlabusayo,
Ngihlezi ngimomotheka nje nguwe,
Inkanyezi zisobala nje emini nguwe,
Sengiphamben' ingqondo nje ngawe.
Heart racing with an adrenaline rush,
Evolution runs with my feelings.
Blessed beyond measure I am,
Ruthless I will be, boasting about you.
Oriented as favoured,
Kinetic flows, we are in motion,
Endless memories we shall create.
Now and forever we relate.
Passion is all I am about,
Overactive imagination with wild thoughts,
Emotions in sync
The Broken Poet, please be mine.
BLACKROSE vs KING KG
Golden brown eyes,
A true African king.
A heart of gold he has,
Enticing is his charms.
Drawn to his might,
Cupid's arrow has been shot.
A victim of love I have become,
In your arms I pray is my demise.
For by your hand I may fall,
But in love I have won.
Lub' elimnyama tshu...
Ntomb' imbal' umnyama khaca!
Mbokodo dilika ziwohlok' indonga
Dunu-dunu nsuzelakude yamakhosi!
Mthwalo wadid' inkosi yadiyazela.
Waqhamuk' inkonjwa zaphenduk' imbebebe.
Uhlanyis' ubumina kutshwaq' igazi.
Ngcazelo yenzal' enhl' eyomfazi.
Sondela sincokol' okwengwazi.
Nhlamvana ziphethe ziyangijuja.
Ngoni thwitshi tshwa! ziyangiqumbaqumba.
Wangithinta kanye ngaphambana.
Ndebe zimtoti zincincim' ubuhle bemvelo
Tho-tho-tho...incibilik' ithonte, ngimanzi ngiyajuluka kunzima.
Ngisondele yini munt' omuhle?
