My love never faded..
It was just inhaled &
For at times you give up...
Especially when the one that you want
Lacks the maturity or ability
To reciprocate the same emotions
You exhaled in their direction..
It’s always “you’re acting different” when you finally decide to treat people as they treat you..
Always making permanent decisions for the ones that were meant to evaporate..
Why carve your name on a tree?
When you can carve it in my heart
Learn how to say no, without giving a reason...
In a world full of
Fake this & fake that
& you’re looking at yourself...
Raw & uncut...
Keep looking at the beauty
That’s deeper than skin deep..
For you are enough
You are beautiful
A year of Clarity...
Clarity is what we needed
My vision is clear
I’ve stripped you naked,
yet you’re still clothed with lies.
Layers upon layers...
My bones broke in many pieces to bring you into this chaotic world
When I look at you, everything makes sense...I am whole.
I asked for unconditional love & God gave me you.
Your eyes are brighter than the rhinestones that I used to steal from my mother
I gave them all back to her you know...
For I found a greater treasure of my own
I never understood the cliche...
Of giving birth, or having a baby of your own is a love that’s unexplainable
But it’s true..
No greater love can compare to this...
Seeing your heart in human form
I tasted you anyway
They tried to regurgitate
Your love out of me
It’s too late...I feel you in my vein
Lay beside me, while I trace on your bare sand with my finger tips
Like a leech..
You’ve held on
To my ****** heart,
And ****** the love
Right out of me
I smell spring around the corner...but here you are with your winter chillls that leaves me numb..I’m so tired of feeling nothing..when all I crave is warmth. When’s my next season of love?
Even when you're stone cold
Diamonds bloom inside of you
I wanted to write a lovely poem..
I ended up writing your name
Fly out of her
I remember when you used to wake me up in the morning with a kiss & a melody of your sound whispering in my ear telling me "good morning" the world was still..for I fixed my energy unto you...now that you're no longer in my presence, nature wakes me, the wind kisses me..the birds whisper sweet melodies in my ear...I should be saddened by this substitution but there's beauty all around me even when you're gone
Isn't it crazy how through pain, we learn our deepest lessons? We learn ourselves...Yes we create water through our eyes...yet we use that to quench our own roots. We blossom to such beautiful distinct flowers
His empty promises
make me drink
this full glass of regrets..
I want you to love me for a life time..
Be gentle to me...kiss me slowly
Like the sun setting down on me
Deep down I knew that I should've remained in my box,
For these men are like vultures,
yet display themselves as doves
Yet full of deception
I wish I met him at a more
"Traditional" place other than
The place we met...a room
Full of bodies either
Searching for lust,
Or searching for a distraction
In toxic water, or a toxic soul
Some even move to the rhythm
Of the beat for joy & laughter...
Others move to the rhythm of the
Beat to forget yesterday's sounds
As for me, I'm not sure why I was there,
But I certainly wasn't there to forget
The face I came across so unexpectedly
Serendipity as one might call it if you may
Beauty is what he called me
Drunk is what I called him
I closed myself off..so whys there a
Window peaking his light in?
...Drunk is what I called him
Yet his name is what I whispered
To myself on my drive home..
I am a foreign woman
Expressing myself to you
In a foreign language
These words are your words,
Yet somehow reside in me
I envy the arrival of the moon... for when the moon makes its appearance, darkness forms and silence grows. When the moon makes its appearance, my mind is restless
My mother always says, a woman's intuition makes a man feel uncomfortable. For he knows that deep down, she knows everything without asking to know. She just knows. It flows like the river in her heart, it flies around like butterflies in her gut, it runs miles in her mind...it's always there. Now some women suppress that intuition for the case of not letting go of love...scared of the unknown after what they thought was love is lost..as we know, love is blind at times. But I encourage you ladies, do not neglect that intuition. For the more you listen to it, the stronger it gets. If you openly accept it, it'll be your safety net, your protection, your armor against deeper pain. Listen to your intuition...for it is a gift from God.
He told me all the reasons he could not love me..
The heartbreak from his past,
the distance, and so forth
He said I'm just insecure
No...my love, you're just a coward
When the sweet sun kissed your skin,
honey was formed..
I admire you like art,
dark skin smooth as silk
I need your embrace..
I need your embrace
The worst kind of love is one that's not reciprocated...
How do you feel such fire for someone,
Yet they feel no warmth?
You are my rib...
you to fracture,
is not an option..
you help me breathe
Here you are,
telling me you love me in my dreams again
making me feel like it's reality..
Opening your heart to someone new,
is like inviting them to an open house viewing...
here's my space..
here's where you may lay your head
when trouble or rest consumes you..
give me a call when you're
interested in moving in
you're the cause
of my pain,
I wiped your tears
and said it’s okay..
I fell for you like rain..
I'm full of your love like the ocean
You are the water to my thirst
you never see it coming...
yet you feel it like the wind
Just like the Sun,
your love was warmth to my soul
Everytime I share my words with you, I'm looking for ways to confess without pointing the finger back to me...
I am a single bird
my heart is
We're just young lovers...
with old soulful hearts
If you tilt your head
At the night sky
You can see the crescent moon
Smiling back at you
He copes with his pain
By making fun of the hurt...
Our laughter heals his wounds..
I placed my heart in your hands and you dropped it...
I should have noticed your trembling hands
Do not give me empty promises...
Fill up the space with your actions
Find a lover who undresses your mind
& makes love to your soul
Love soulmate happiness
God has been crying a lot lately...
I feel his sorrow pour down on me
I adopted your heart..
You are my family
Don't fall like the leaves for a poet
They'll carve out words of you
On many trees for the rest of eternity
My love was deep for you..
Yet while I was drowning,
You were floating
We're all broken pieces...walking puzzles...
Looking for the right fix
Looking for the right fit
You my friend are not a cemetery
thus, stop opening your arms
to those who are only
looking for a place to
rest their weary bones
it is the only way
we could ever
