Sunny skies of yesterday Moon begins to rise Kiss of honey Teakwood scent Time to turn off the lights   Fingertips glide across Lukewarm patches of flesh Wet lips grip Time elapse Last ounce of energy left   Two forms in the night Two forms ignite Two forms come […]

Chemistry


     Quite talkative am I  When I have so much to say But there seems to be one topic That just takes my words away   it’s like traveling in a funnel And I am whirling down Yet I cannot let out a scream  Nor any other sound   […]

Closed Mouth


The day the inner bark of the tree turned brown Was the day I finally felt alive I felt each goosebump on my flesh I felt each ripple down my spine   I breathed the air that I took for granted It was so soft and sweet I smelled the […]

The Day The Inner Bark Turned Brown



You say that you are a paper pusher But you know you just aren’t happy Walking around with flashy things Riding around in that new caddie   Wrist flashing from your jewelry Dressed from the top of your head to your toes You say that you are a paper pusher […]

Paper Pusher


  Light fades to dark skies   Shoes removed from feet   The body finally sits down   Eyes hang low   I need some sleep     Intoxicated by a daily drug   A drug I can never beat   My walls can no longer surround me   My […]

Late Night Truths


I forgot how to tie my shoes this morning I could not wrap two strings around I could not make that lovely loop Surely when I walk I’ll fall down   My fingers just wouldn’t perform the motion My eyes won’t allow me to see My day cannot get started […]

Late Day



Worries cast to the wind Just like fire to a flame Face to face they will meet But will stay the same A force moving fiercely Worries left behind as the wind pounds my face I cast my worries to the wind Til soon they both stop worrying me  

To the Wind


  The stars that twinkle late at night Let me know that I am alive   Each flicker of light sparkles magically Just like the twinkle in a stranger’s eyes    The dew that hits my cheeks As I lay beneath the stars Feels like the softest touch  As soft […]

Night Life


​I kiss you every morning As I awake from sleep For starting my day with a taste of you Was truly all I need I place your mug on the table And then began to prepare your morning cup of joe For you love your coffee in the morning Right […]

Reward for The Wait



A tree can grow to staggering heights And bloom flowers each spring The leaves could be crisp and new A spectacle for all to see The branches can provide shade On those hot summer days A sanctuary for the little birds That fly around your yard and play A toy […]

Roots


      Could you love me like a bottle of water On a hot, humid summer day   Could you savor ever drop of me Even if you thirsted for another drink   Could you wait until the ice in my heart melts Before you just throw me away […]

Ice Ice


I’m surprised that you had student loans After all You are black And things were made for people like you To help with what you think you lack   You see opportunity was given Kind of just thrown at you unlike me They give you jobs you don’t qualify for […]

My Color Friend



  Filled to the brim Almost overflowing Whenever I think of you   The touch of your flesh against my cheeks Makes me feel like I can touch the moon   The kisses that you gift me with I willfully accept them And I can only close my eyes   […]

To the Brim


  In love a seed was planted And in love that seed grew Cells turned into flesh And created a child that I once knew   His lips were like his father’s His eyes were just like mines He even had that signature smirk The same as his dad Which […]

Fallen Son




  Fog tends to be heavy these days The weeds overwhelm the garden grounds Beauty can no longer be seen Even though flowers bloom year-round   In the head resides the beauty But at times we never see For our eyes refuse to look deeper And at times our thoughts […]

Heavy Fog


  They say the man that ventures most At times, does not go far   For he may be across the world But he is caged by his own scars   The realities of what happened in his youth Conflict within him deep   So, miles away he may be […]

Find a Hobby. Then find a way to make money doing it.   Hey everyone! I haven’t had a random post like this for a whole, but I just felt compelled to write today. I have always been a hard worker. At times, I overextend myself, but the truth is […]

Be Happy and Get Paid



   I used to smell the roses Until others said they didn’t have a smell   I used to play in the rain Until I realized it ruined my hair   I used to lay in the sun all day Until others said it was unsafe   I used to […]

Forgotten Me


  You are someone to someone You just may not be the someone you may wish   For there is always someone to love And someone to receive your first kiss   Someone to cheer you on in life Someone to pray for you   Someone who faces unquestionable wrath […]

Someone to Someone


  Standing in your shadow On the side of your umbrella when it rains Drenched by the rain that falls But you will not share your umbrella Because you wish them to go away   In the empty stands before you Even at the practice field with you each day […]

The Undervalued Crusader



  Grandma said that those trees cry Just like people do But despite their tears they continue to grow Just like me and you And though tough times can ruffle them Their roots always stand firm Branches bend instead of snap Showing that misfortune shouldn’t break us apart Grandma said […]

People Willows


  As I lay beside you in bed one night I felt my body become a corpse For the love, inside of me has been drained And my joy replaced with remorse But inside my heart was a feeling which I felt within me deep I loved you more than […]

NightTime Dilemma


    Open as it always was Just like an open door   Ready to have you in their grip A baseball in the catcher’s glove   Always there reaching out To grab your hand as they always do   But what happens when the helping hands Are the hands […]

Helping Hands



  He loved me until the rain stopped And the hollow in the tree was no more For weeds grew rapid to protect the core And access to me he had no more   Yet still he admired The beauty he thought I was to be But turned his face […]

The Blooming Tree


Cherry blossoms on the trees Nectar in the air The time has changed And spring is near Your life is circling the square   Words are spoken daily Tongue moves as one speaks The lyrics of each others songs And the effect that each song wreaks   The sun shines […]

Circling The Square

  Two braids going to the back That is how mama braids my hair She says I look as cute as a pea But I don’t understand     For when I look on tv and in magazines I never see girls like me And all the princesses that I […]

​​How I wish you could see your beauty The beauty my eyes see when I look at you The beauty that comes in the form of words from your mouth The beauty in the actions that you do   In the small of your neck when you are walking away […]

I Wish You Could See


My skin that shined so brightly Just like amber glow Was the only thing that caught your eyes And initially the only part you wanted to know For you did not look into my eyes That beamed of chestnut and cinnamon swirls But the flesh you did take notice As […]

You Missed


 I hope you go to places Places that you have always dreamed Be surrounded by things that make you smile And loved by everyone you meet I hope you realize your full potential Even when your heart may be filled with doubts Be courageous in your efforts And venture more […]
