A year of Clarity...
Clarity is what we needed
My vision is clear
After our fight he came in the room and sat on the edge of the bed next to me. We sat in silence reflecting on the words we spewed at one another. Silence. He chuckled. I whispered "what?" He says, "do you hear that? Even the birds know how to communicate better than us" I smiled
Learn how to say no, without giving a reason...
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
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
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
Find a lover who undresses your mind
& makes love to your soul
Love soulmate happiness
Just like the Sun,
your love was warmth to my soul
I am a single bird
my heart is
Grow from the soil
They break from the earth
Before they bloom
My body is no different,
There, grows a heart where it aches
See this garden of roses
Through my bones
Darling, this is not a poem
This is a wound blooming
I placed my heart in your hands and you dropped it...
I should have noticed your trembling hands
We're all broken pieces...walking puzzles...
Looking for the right fix
Looking for the right fit
How lovely is the Sun...
It dims its light
So the Moon can shine
#Love #Partnership #Companion
Notice how in the daytime we're too busy seeing & appearing with no fear of what's there or near...
In the nighttime, we calm ourselves to feel, seek, & hear..the sounds that are so
clear & near...
The wind whispers secrets
of you in my ear...
You cannot stay in the shallow ends..
when you're trying to discover the depth of me
It’s always “you’re acting different” when you finally decide to treat people as they treat you..
Unfinished poems are the flower seeds I've planted...I'm waiting for the rain to make them bloom
Like a leech..
You’ve held on
To my ****** heart,
And ****** the love
Right out of me
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
His empty promises
make me drink
this full glass of regrets..
How he tells her he loves her
Yet lies with another
Sad, sad lover
I see right through that cover
I am a foreign woman
Expressing myself to you
In a foreign language
These words are your words,
Yet somehow reside in me
There’s a jungle growing
inside of me and each
leaf trembles with melody
You are the prettiest face
that has ever carved
a smile for me
When our eyes meet
I’m adamant that all rivers
are silent eulogies carrying
our secrets deep within earth
my veins are small rivers
you, are the sea
I vow to always remember
your face the way the ocean
recalls the moon
Darling, I am possessed by
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
We found each other when we weren’t looking like a rainbow in the morning, we didn’t know it had rained until we dragged ourselves out of bed and looked up at the sky. We came with different companies never expected to be seen...Or perhaps we wanted to be seen but based on a different need. When we crossed each others paths, we were both staring at the grooves in the pavement wondering where all the flowers had gone. In a sense we found each other the way the wind scatters seeds across the earth -how beautiful...we fell between the cracks, yet we never expected to blossom
Everytime I share my words with you, I'm looking for ways to confess without pointing the finger back to me...
God has been crying a lot lately...
I feel his sorrow pour down on me
Always making permanent decisions for the ones that were meant to evaporate..
You are my rib...
you to fracture,
is not an option..
you help me breathe
When I fell for you, I lost myself..
When I fell for him, I found myself
I hope you love her & not the idea...of...her
I’ve stripped you naked,
yet you’re still clothed with lies.
Layers upon layers...
Deep down I knew that I should've remained in my box,
For these men are like vultures,
yet display themselves as doves
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.
I wanted to write a lovely poem..
I ended up writing your name
you never see it coming...
yet you feel it like the wind
Why carve your name on a tree?
When you can carve it in my heart
How convenient for him to tell you he's falling for you only when he's falling in you...sadly you open up & take it all in
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
Let your thorns guard your rosy heart
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 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?
If you tilt your head
At the night sky
You can see the crescent moon
Smiling back at you
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
I adopted your heart..
You are my family
I tasted you anyway
They tried to regurgitate
Your love out of me
It’s too late...I feel you in my vein
I fell for you like rain..
I'm full of your love like the ocean
You are the water to my thirst
I guess Saul was right,
You stuck a bookmark in me
And walked away..
How do you just walk away?
You weren't done reading me
Before you opened her up..
& highlighted your favorite spots..
You're not supposed to judge a book
By its cover...thought I taught you better
#Read #Life #Love
you're the cause
of my pain,
I wiped your tears
and said it’s okay..
