Breaking

You are in the process of self destructing. You are severing your hands and arms  Trying to hang onto someone who doesn't want you. Breaking your back Carrying relationships That give you little in return.

Pristine

You were never jaded Never worn down Or torn after all these years Artwork standing intact  Workmanship like you is slowly fading extinct  Ever since sixteen candles decorated your cake You've reminded me of the Sistine Chapel You were pristine battles where bullets of sweat and paint landed exactly where they were meant to. Finding … Continue reading Pristine

How To Raise A Black Boy

Does the juxtaposition of the words "Black” “Lives” &”Matter" make you upset? Black bodies hanging from poplar trees, would you have wept? When a black child is murdered by police, Do you ask "why" or "why didn't he get on his knees" When armed shooters with lack of color Are still allowed to see their … Continue reading How To Raise A Black Boy

This Could Be Us But You Playing

That could be us but you playing. That would be nice why you delaying. You say all the right things And do all of the wrong All of the lies you sing Got me replaying your songs Perfection in no discretion in our mannerisms Affections with no rejection. Can you listen? See me for me … Continue reading This Could Be Us But You Playing

Bed Peace

Staring at your hour glass shape. Not caring it's an hour past 8. 2 hours past late for work and I didn't call in. You got something I could slip and fall in. I don't want to leave this bed. My peace. My serenity. Maybe I'm forming a dependency.  I watch you close like an … Continue reading Bed Peace

Silent Pleas

You ever been defeated? So many times to the point where it depleted you? Almost deleted you? Me either.. I guess i just lied to the reader. Lied to myself as usual. I've filed down my nails to the cuticles so I no longer cut myself. How is it, that i love everyone but myself? … Continue reading Silent Pleas
