I need a blanket
Would you give me yours?
I doubt that'll happen
'Cause you are too cold
Just short

your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about
you;

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that

Is a poet still a poet
If they do not write?

A journal gathering dust,
But a yearning to write.
Am I still a poet
Without my inner light?
I'm sorry I haven't written a while! Love you all
A friend of mine told me
I write when I’m sad
She said it is as if I am in pain
And I said when I write it rains
When I put the pen on paper the clouds get dark
And when I stop
The birds of the sky sings
Coming out to play as the sun is out
He said facing me
  " I love you because you never lie"
but my back
  tells the story
    of many lies
      & many nights
          looking for love
             living a lie
                 despite it all.

I crave for your breath on my neck, for that nearness is much more than my own breath! It’s ok to give up my life for you, to be with you for those few moments. I can be thrown into fire, for I know you will be there with me, your presence makes me safe, so safe that the fire forgets to burn or even singe my hair. What more can I ask for, what do I need; for all I am asking for is you...

what do I need?
to burn in the fire of your love
even when you look away
I understand that flowing heart
loving me the way you do
even when I let you down
you keep loving me
like how only you can
so what am I waiting for
to burn in the fire of your love
to become ashes
to be thrown into your being
for that is where I reside
yes
I reside in you...

you may feel ashamed of me sometimes
for I am not moulded nor made the way you thought
so different am I
from the others you came across
so dear I shall wait
forever
for your heart to change
when you get back
I shall never ask
why
for you are the same
the best for me ever...
Your light covers my darkness
When I feel alone
When enemy seeks to destroy me
You stretch out your wings of protection.
Upon my life.
You cover me
You shield me in the Pam of your hands.
You forever watch over me.
You soar like eagles
High in the sky.
The armies of the Lord
Destroys
Delivers
Heals
The Lord *rescues
Don't leave me
Say you will stay
I'll miss you
Don't let others belittle you.
Your pen is inspiring
Don't blot out those words.
Carry on
Scribbing  
We love your poetry
It's inspired right from the heart
We need you .
You need us .
Dear friends.
Dear don't loose heart 💔
