Flourish

The truth is ugly so you hide it. Colors are beautiful and can create images of glory. But you don’t like it. It’s the colors of the wind that makes me feel. The feeling of moods inclining me to new fornication’s of life. Feeling one thing at a time won’t last long. Joy riding to…

Risk of Falling

Vibes are blissful with you. Not much of a hopeless romantic these days so I have been told. It’s not all perfect,but maybe you’re worth it. I live in a place where everything is just right, and people or things changes and rearranges until I believe it’s alright. I share that place with myself and…

Life

I see it in movies all the time. People waking up to brewing coffee and sunlight beaming through clean windows to a beautiful view. Makes me wonder how did I not get the memo? When I roll over to an alarm clock shouting get up for a long day of work. What is work when…

Long Night

Wishing on full moons, walking the tracks to catch a train at 2 o’clock to catch all my thoughts. Heavy loads like buses confused on whether I am coming or going. The many suit cases to move from one train to the next. Stamp on my ticket heading to the last destination of thoughts. My…

Little Girl Ghost

Fingers crawling up my legs in between my thighs like spiders, I only stood about yeigh high. Going in my under garment the wrong way. Nana made this easy for you without even knowing, because religious views were sworn to be more important. Women aren’t suppose to wear men garments. Deuteronomy 22:5- Night gown after night…

The Story

It’s interesting standing on the sideline while everyone else gets to play the field. I scroll down timelines and see everyone I know or knew getting married and carried away. Makes me think my life has been stored away in a time capsule. I hope when someone finds me it will be in the moment…

I Told You So

I can’t deny the damages that you may see on my face. Leeches sucking my life dry. The last thing I need is a “I told you so”. Give me a break since I have nothing left to give. I learn from the scars that I create even when I am afraid to make them….

Inseparable

Ten fingers and ten toes. Head full of curly thick brown hair. I love you. Fascination that you’ll be something in this world no matter how ugly it is; you make it beautiful. I lay my life down for your heartbeat. God’s will I pray you never have to see or feel the things that…

I hate YOU

You took me down and created a dream right before my eyes. The type of dream you rather replay instead of seeing it end. The visual changed and emotions became unbelievable. I have been up; I’ve been higher; I’ve been low to the point I’ve been down. All over you. Each low I say I’m…

Good Things

Chase me down. I like that. It’s the thrill I crave. Smiles on a marigold round of hopes and dreams. Walking on green grass with bare feet to feel down to earth. Curiosity going hand in hand with my goals. I refuse to fold. So I reach my hands to the sky with the sun…

Eternally Sinful

There’s nothing that is the same in a world of the sinful. No sin trumps another; but yet we all ponder and began to wonder. I’m nothing short of 5’3, and yet I feel below average. He came to a realization that my sin was greater than his meaning I was too much for him….

I’m Just Not You

  It’s not enough to be a creature of the same gender. The war has to be greater than what’s between our thighs. We boast out our chest to compete with the next. Size matter; I must have missed too many servings of mustard greens and cornbread. I’m not great. I won’t be next to…
