Poetry Book Review: Messages to the Deaf by Denise N. Fyffe

Messages to The Deaf by Denise N. Fyffe


Messages to the Deaf attempts to highlight some of those things, which are often treated with subconscious indifference, when we consciously know better.

When I compiled this book of poetry, I included pieces tackled issues which are kept hush hush. -Poetess Denise Fyffe”

Enjoy the excerpt of one of these poems below:

You exposed me

You exposed me,
To a crouching tiger, hidden dragon
You left me,
Defenceless and vulnerable;
My life shortened,
Buried in the sands of time
My life worthless,
No longer mine;

Our children will live
While we die
Forced to seek answers
Forced to sift through lies;
You exposed them,
To be lonely for the rest of their days
You exposed us,
To HIV, Aids;

You exposed me,
And our unborn child
You exposed me,
And told me lies
No longer do my eyes see
Our children’s happy faces
As I lay dying of Aids,
It’s closed,
Sealed to my grave;

You exposed me. ..
