[#POEM] I AIN’T

I ain’t crazy
Set in my ways maybe
Sometimes I’m lazy
But I ain’t playing
No games…
I’m not the same
Things…circumstances change
And I prayed
For you to come
Back my way
For another chance
One more opportunity
To show you who I really am
To learn you
Fall for you and
Lick you from your pussy to
Your ass…
Don’t mean to be so
Crass… but
Damn…it’s starting to hurt
Knowing I deserve
You…yet for some
Reason I can’t do
Anything to get
Your attention…
It’s killing me slowly
Hoping for something
That may only be a dream
Longing for the day
You come to me
And let me love you…
Cause I know that’s
What I am here to do…

[#AUDIO / #POEM] EVERYTYME

A new beginning for an old piece…no pun intended… ☺️

[#POEM] SERIAL MONOGAMIST

SERIAL MONOGAMIST


So yeah…
I have this horrible habit
of falling for women unavailable to
ME
in some form or fashion…

Passed by
Picked over
I’m never chosen
Something always
Happens…

I reek love…so much I believe it’s become a repellent…

But I’m a lover
I can’t help it…

I’m still healing…
Still learning…
Still growing…

Hoping I don’t leave this earth
Too soon…

Cause eventually
I’d like to marry
Someone…

Maybe…You

[#POEM] HAVE MERCY

HAVE MERCY

Have mercy on me
I’m not who
I used to be…
I was kind
I was honest
I was sweet…
I was giving
I was loving
I was caring
I was meek

Then she…They
Made a fool of me…
And I’m still
Healing…

[#POEM] LOVE’S A MYSTERY

LOVE’S A MYSTERY

I want you
You want him
He wants her
She wants me…
Love’s a mystery
Forever missing me…

I keep telling myself to
Let it go…
And truthfully it’s
Cause I know it’s not
Going to be easy…
Breaking down all
The walls around your
Heart is going to be
One hell of a challenge
Not sure if
I possess the strength
To handle it all…
But should you happen
To somehow fall
I’d be at your beck and call…

I want you
You want him
He wants her
She wants me
Love’s a mystery
Forever missing me…

We always want the
One we can’t have
You can’t see it
But I’m crying when
I laugh…
This shit is my hard
My nigga…
My love is bigger than
That nigga’s
But I figure
Loving him is just easier…
However… I ain’t no punk
I ain’t no quitter in
Anything I decide to do
So if I have to believe in
Something…someone…
It’s gonna be you…

[#POEM] HERE IT IS

Here It Is
2016 by Alice Walker


Here it is
the beauty that scares you
-so you believe-
to death.
For he is certainly gorgeous
and he is certainly where whiteness
to your disbelief
has not wandered off
to die.
No. It is there, tawny skin, gray eyes,
a Malcolm-esque jaw. His loyal parents
may Goddess bless them
sitting proud and happy and no doubt
amazed
at what they have done.

For he is black too. And obviously
with a soul
made of everything.
Try to think bigger than you ever have
or had courage enough to do:
that blackness is not where whiteness
wanders off to die: but that it is
like the dark matter
between stars and galaxies in
the Universe
that ultimately
holds it all
together.

[#POEM] I WISH NEVER MET YOU

I WISH I NEVER MET YOU  

I wish I never met you…
Cause now I know
What good love is…
Now I know what I
Want…need…and like
You exceeded all my
Expectations
You were real…
Not just a mere prototype
You were what
I had been looking
For all my life
I was certain by all means
You were the one
My wife…

But I wish I never met you…
Cause now
I am stuck here
Stripped of my armor
Of fear and resistance
And I’ve committed
Myself to loving you…
Forever
A promise I made
To myself and I
Never break those…
Not ever

Yet still
I wish I never met you
I wish I never felt you
I wish I never let you in
So deeply…
So freely…
Cause you don’t even know
Me…
You don’t even see me
Never made an effort
To dig in my mind…
You spent most of
Our time together
Between my thighs
And I can’t lie…
You…fucking…blow
My mind
Every time… But I
Need more…
Deserve more than
You are willing to
Bring to the table
And I am able
To accept that…

But the fact still remains
I wish I never met you
Saw that smile
Kissed those lips…
Cause now I have a head
Full of dreams
And ponder should I cleanse
My soul of your
Energy and memories
Now I have to
Make the decision
To love you
Or let you be…
