Two embers once burned And soon created a flame Once the two finally made contact They were able to ignite a blaze A flame so fierce and bold That it lit up every room A flame that burned for years And till this day it still do Generating a heat […]

Fire to Smoke


​Ball of lava thrown at your feet You watch the floor before you burn   Venom spews from your mouth You poison your fictional lover with words   You see the devastation you have caused And you simply walk away   For what is the point in arguing If you […]

Puppeteer’s Demise


In the spring time I sat and waited As flowers bloomed from the magnolia trees Putting off my next moves For I thought I knew what the season would bring The wind blew through my hair And droplets of rain caressed my cheeks Yet the only thing that change one […]

Seasons Change



Removal of the items That conceals most of my flesh   Prepare myself for entry I take one long deep breath   Into the depths of you I dive Plunging into the dark   To venture deep into your mind And swim beside your thoughts   A journey I shall […]

Deep Dive


​Curtains on your beautiful eyes No longer able to see the truth   Thoughts cloudy because of your negative mind Sweet thoughts do not consume you   Truth, honesty, and wisdom Simply in front of your face   Yet you refuse to see the good in the world Because you […]

The Broken Man


  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 […]
