I want to break
your walls down
And
use the same bricks
to build us a home.

If eyes could talk
Mine would reveal to you all my secrets
Like how you cross my thoughts,
and stay until my mind feels foreign without you on it.
If eyes could talk, mine would probably say all
the words I want to say but could never tell you
because of a fear, that maybe my fantasies are more fascinating than what reality has in store for us.
Like a mystery box that could entail an undesirable gift.
I would much rather wander in my head.
I sometimes wonder,
perhaps if I do not confess my love, and I wait long enough...
Maybe we would blossom, like flowers planted in a suitable season.
Infatuation,
It should never be a reason
to pursue love.

An abundance of melanin
Adrenaline pumping from
my head to my toes.
The limit to my abilities?
Noone knows.
Calm as a storm but
My potency will bring you to
your knees
If you fail to fulfill my needs.
Kings and queens
with ***** crowns on the pinnacles
of our heads.
Apparently we are a threat
to the feds
because we are
smarter,
stronger,
faster,
Darker.

You try to downplay our worth...
As if the sun does not
Step aside every single night
For the black sky and its stars to shine.

We said
"no strings attached,"
instead,
I let you
string me along
and now you have me
wrapped around your fingers.

The darkest hours are
succeeded by
the brightest day.
Even in hard times,
there is light
somewhere
along the way.
Just follow your heart
and I promise you
will never be
led astray.

"I keep telling you that
I'm pretty
as a reminder
to myself
that
I'm beautiful, "
she said,
"I wait
for your affirmation.
I need to convince you
so that
I can convince myself
of a truth
I've told so many times that
it's beginning to sound like a lie."

You're only you when it's only you.
