NGILOSI YOQOBO Ululuju, Ulilangaliphuma, Uyindizamtshina, Uyisithelo sesihlahla esimnandi, Uligolide mhlawumbe? Ugil"imikhuba engqondweni yami, Udumis'imizwa yami, Ubumbekile sqabhobho mtwan'omuntu. Izigcuma zakho zingisa encwadini engcwele ngesikhathi sabo Eva, Amehlo lenkophe zakho kuyangi ```stikhisa``` Indlebe lamakhala akho kubutshelezi,kuyakhazimula njengo msosobiyane ofakwe emanzini. Isilevu sakho sihl'okwe zandla zami nxa ngiqeda kuwatsha. Inwele zakho zid'okumlung'owabuy' ezothenga uNsundu ngakithi. Indebe zakho zikhazimula satomatisi eliphuma esivandeni. Ugil'imikhuba engqondweni yami. Udumis'imizwa yami. Ubumbekile sqabhobho. Ijwabu lakho lijwabujwabu lileveve Ngikubona uthutsha ngizwa uqhuqho Kuth'angitshone phansi angazingenzenjani Ngizwa amabhampa enhlizweni yami Kahlekahle ngiyabe ngizizwa angathi ngiphakathi kwemota. Ugil'imikhuba engqondweni yami. Udumis'imizwa yami. Ubumbekile sqabhobho. Lapho ngikwetshela kwakungathi ngumdlalo, Ukulala yebo,ngiyalala kepha ngiyaphuza. Ngize ngijumeke ngikhohlwe ukucimeza. Phela awakho Ami mpo! Ezakho ziyangi bhabhula Ahh! Kambe lingilosi ngayibonanjani? phela luhlobo lukamakoti oluthandwa yinhliziyo yami Nxa ngiphupha ,ngicabanga kuqala kudlule wena engqondweni, Nxa ngihamba ngize ngime ngathi ngibona umdlalo qha!ngicabanga wena. Bengangithuma ukuyathenga isitshebo Mina ngibuya lesinkwa, Nxa ngiwatsha ngize ngichaye kunjalo ngingahlambululanga, kuduma wena ekhanda Ugil'imikhuba engqondweni Yami. Udumis'imizwa yami. Ubumbekile sqabhobho. Nginwaya ikhanda ,ngiphelelwe ngamagam' okutsho nxa uthutsha. Phela!elakho iphimbo lilolongiwe njengobal' indaba zantambama Ukuhlekelela kwakho, Ukudlala kwakho, Ukuhamba kwakho, Hayibo! ungowami kuphela. Iminyaka mid' ubabakazi kad'aqala (Mlangeni uyeza Nini oweth' umalukazana?) LoNjomane uzethuka mhla ekubona uthutsha. Kozamazama iguma lokhe mhla umagcwala guma engen' ekhaya. Buhleza woza sambe. Ugil'imikhuba engqondweni yami. Udumis' imizwa yami. Ubumbekile sqabhobho. Mina nawe soba ngamethe lolimi, Sithandane okwamajuba Abadala bathi umqokolo wendwangu uvuthelwa emlonyeni , Mina ngizoba yindwangu, Wena umqokolo Uvuthelwe kowami umlomo, Ugil' imikhuba engqondweni yami. Udumis' imizwa yami. Ubumbekile sqabhobho. Ngikuthanda Haleluya Phind'ubhale futhi sibalwami Zwelithini Dlamini Imbongi esakhulayo firstname.lastname@example.org
