YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL LIE

womansilhouette

I stood looking at you
Wondering why my heart would not stop
Calling your voice from the distance

I cried for this love divine
I cried because of this love divine
I cried with this love divine
Pieces continue to fall apart
Every part of you is missing
Every part of you is wishing
Every part of you is leaving

SHE’S ALL WOMAN

content-width-black-woman-3

She stands before you
Eyes filled with emotions unknown
Arms that want to reach out
Heart thumping in its chest
Fear dazzled in her bright pupils
Ear twitching from the beating heart
Long neck daring you loudly
Feet firmly set on the ground
Lips straining a smile
Hair massaging her scalp
Those curves unending
Skin shimmering in the night
Beckoning untold fairy tales
What do you see
She’s all woman

YOU’RE HARD WORK BUT YOU’RE GOOD FOR ME

I have loved so much before
Yet not in this magnitude
You make me work harder to find you
I want to run
Catch up
With emotions in my head
With those that dangle my heart
You see me as no one does
Long days
Even longer nights
Only make me yearn more
For the morsels i see in you
A heart broken
Never learns to love again

Still i did not comprehend how
My words would be received
How phrases sewn together
Would lend revelations to the universe

HE FOUND HER SUICIDE NOTE

The day i found out about dad
Which dad
He’s never even called me
Since the last time i did
Who are you kidding
He doesnt want me
I’m just an inconvenience to him
Something he would like to sweep
Under a rug and forget
Why didn’t i get the perfect family
