A stranger stole my heart left a mark I can’t deny I never got to touch you but I feel you everywhere with me It’s like our souls are intertwined Isn’t it strange, stranger Or should I call you beloved stranger who stole my heart You’re not a stranger no more You have a place in my heart I saved your love notes incase this is the last time you’ll write to me I saved your voice notes incase I never hear you voice again You said you’ll be back when you’re own you own two feet I pray to god you find your peace
Such a manly man very rare Dripping with forbidden Luxuries. Complexities bringing out the besties in me. Owee Owee Touching places imaginatively. At thoughts of beauty. Guilty guilty.. Diamonds sparkly out shining reality. I was driving to the store for some seasonings and something refreshing. As the sunlight kept appearing rays of bright. Pulling down my sun visor. The heat of the evening. Gets hotter temps are steaming. As my mind starts to reflect. Trying hard to redirect. Flowery thoughts best to forget. Walking down grocery store isles. Looking for black pepper, and onion powder. As emotions inside scream for hearts attention gets louder. I need to get some tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, Feelings leave me alone please, hearing that voice "come here baby I'm recalling. Woman quit running suga your stalling. He states I see you truly I've been going thru my own lonely thangs I'm a man. Living day by day working hard laboring with these hands. Meeting life demands. Your cool such an Angel Brush me with cool wings. I do compel. I admit I fail. Just need water from glowing wells. Mercy for me.. You run away from me.." Guilty guilty ..please forgive me if I trouble. I'm shopping isle hopping escaping. All I want is to find my own paper. That will belong to the words I scribble on it by my own flavor. Pen courting simple free good dots careful no out of the line spots. Finally at the register ready to check out. Tempting treats thoughts to grab them mind plots. Don't grab any candy junk at the register. Keep it moving. Guess who's entering. As I'm exiting. Beautiful luxury manly casually strolling up to me. @SelinaSharday_H.E.R POETRY S.A.M 2023
REALITY IN KNOWING YOUR A STRANGER TO SOME THINGS..
driven by a ghost possessing my body I lived with a mind a stranger with no identity a thatched soul, fake - no authenticity quivered in fear of people in my vicinity may they never discover the imposter - my entity.
You left in the morning in a daze I stayed waiting for you in a haze Made promises you said you’d be back It’s been 2 years no looking back.
Showed up in a dream you said you were close Finishing up school and work and chores I don’t even know you anymore But you keep your promise and me on my toes.
I loved you when I didn’t understand you wholly I wanted you when you were broken completely But you made a choice to go back and leave Left me crying and calling out in a heave.
Now you said you’d be there when I’d come too It’s been a minute I don’t know what to look for in you Been a great friend, a great ally Seen you walking looking back at my side Maybe you never forgot who I was But you’re starting to look like I don’t even know who you was.
Bring back the higher note, the old soul Bring back the promise that you made in your past Four folds ago Four years ago It’s been just minute longer than before Maybe I’d remember when you return Why you left to earn And didn’t come back in turn.
