Lost and Found

Let me help you flip the switch
Scratch that itch 
that’s been burning 
For some time we’ve been yearning 
for each other
Under the moonlight
we reach for a lover
that’s been like no other

I’ve longed to hold you,
to have you close to me
to feel you envelope me
to have our hands intertwine
to graze my fingers across your body and across your lips
to rest my hand on your cheek
to lo...

In Search of Mermaids and Lighthouses

In search of mermaids and lighthouses is where you will find him and me.

Seeking sea things sets us free from daily monotony, broken hearts, Advil bodies.

We thrift shop with childlike wonder, forgetting about adult things like settling debts, stagnant relationships, mortality.

Mermaids and lighthouses beckon us to dive into a green-flag ocean of time where life is sublime.

I am African

I have learned that I am African that I have African blood

I have African brothers that protect me and will not let me fall

 I've learned about the atrocities that slaves went through

I've walked through the dungeons and smelled and seen the horrors that slaves experienced

I stood in the female dungeon and heard the cries for help and felt the fear that these women went through

I've...

Work of Art

Alone in this moment I stand. 

Leaning against the bathroom sink.

Tears cloud my vision then stream down my cheeks.

 I don’t recognize the girl in the mirror.

 A reflection of destruction stares back at me. 

Everything I’ve been holding back escapes my soul. 

I grip the sink and try to fight it. 

 

I’m not Human,

 

I’m Emotion.

I’m bottled up pain.

I’m held back...

Que Sera

Que Sera Sera

I loved you.

You loved me.

We lived life 

in perfect harmony,

wild and free...

Until some pretty young thing 

lured you away from me 

lies replaced honesty, 

trust evaporated completely. 

Now we spend our days

dreaming, separately 

of how good life used to be. 

Que sera sera, 

You love you.

I love me.

Without possession,

passion, jea...

Embers

I want to tell you how incredibly

imaginative, creative, talented

I think you are with your poetry,

writing, music, art...

but I hesitate to expose our

eggshell-covered egos, 

fuel rejection, 

ignite impostor syndrome...

all live wires 

that threaten to electrocute

our fragile muse 

into submission 

of a numbed,

comfort-zone life. 

So, instead of shouting

2 Year Anniversary Around The Corner

You ARE the love of my life. 
You ARE my bestest fuckin friend ever! 
You ARE a woman I truly admire and adore. 
You ARE the most fascinating and interesting person I know. 
You ARE the most beautiful woman from head to toes.
You have the most infectious laugh that turns me on so much! 
You ARE awesome and I love you so damn much!

What is it that makes me love you?

entry picture

What it is that makes me love you,
in this inexplicable connection,
that while you sleep I would abduct your heart?

What it is that makes me love you?

Without offering anything, only these nights of memories,
you to enter into my body silently,
reincarnated in the monologue of my dreams

I would die for a kiss from you, if necessary...
a kiss on the tenuous thread of dawn,
there clos...

Letting Go

I made a decision that was hard

To let you go 

To let you fly

God told me don’t worry she’ll be fine

God told me ,“ Love is patience. Love is kind.”

I cried and yelled and couldn’t accept it 

His voice was clearer his voice was loud

He said one more time, “Love is patience. Love is kind.”

I finally understood I needed to stop being selfish

Warrior of God

"God, God!" I yelled and cried.

God why have you abandoned me.

I drank to see if the pain would go away.

"God!," I said I still feel hurt

I still feel pain!

Then I finally gave up and cried for days and saw nothing but darkness

Then a voice came and said, " Get up, don't give up, put on your shield, put on your armour!"

The voice was mad the voice was hurt the voice was comman...

Urge

Urge

I have this urge to call you

An urge to beg you

An urge to show you I can be happy

I have an urge to tell you that I am strong

I have an urge to tell you that I agree and we're done

An urge to say I know you aren't coming back

I have an urge to stop torturing myself and finally let you be free

I say one more text that is all I need

I say one more text that is all I ...

TAG

entry picture

Over and over, 
I see your name 
like a tattoo 
on my brain. 

A flame 
that ignites 
not on deed or fame, 
but simply a name. 

A tag, reminding us 
who we are:
dreamer, poet, 
old soul, 

who despite living 
an alternate reality, 
believes in passion, 
love, happily ever after...

The Pain of Passion

Passion is carefree, often buoyant.....breezy,
and is absolved perpetually of prohibitory rationality.

Being logged in to it for a little over eternity,
this is exactly how I have felt:
intense, steamy
...maybe a bit frenzied.

Passion is also a sudden, swift salvo.
On many a fleeting occasion, ergo;
I have come perilously close
to suggesting my maudlin ardor
and poetically propose
an in...
