By Rose Gathoni, Nairobi, Kenya

I’ve always had a fetish for things in black

My sincere apologies if wearing these tinted glasses makes you demented

I am fully aware that the eyes are the windows to the soul

But I don’t want you to keep searching for a soul mate in me

In my eyes..

I am not ready for the vulnerability that comes with removing these glasses

I am not ready for the world to tamper with my soul

For it is made of soft satin,

Delicate silk

These glasses shade my soul from your foul desires
