SOUNDS

Have you ever listened to the humming sounds of ceiling fans? Each one has a different speed, a different hum that puts me to sleep. Watching the blades go round and round clockwise in summer. Counter for winter…blowing down air & sucking it up again. I enjoy the humming of the ceiling fan. Just close your eyes and feel the…

I STILL NEED YOU

I need you like one needs air to breathe Like a flower needs water, like the earth needs the sun I need you like the night sky needs the moon I need you like the birds need to fly I need you like an addict needs his high Brother, King, Lover, Friend…I need you  Too many words to be said…

RESTLESS

I’ve got soo many thoughts in my head Sometimes it’s hard for me to go to bed. So many thoughts…. Gotta write them down on paper while I’m up instead I keep a pen & pad next to my bed so I can write down these thoughts in my head. Writing in the dark is a little hard. Hope I…

MY TRUTH

You say you want the truth but after careful observation and conversation I see that you cannot handle the truth. My truth would scare the hell out of you or at the very least make you stop speaking to me. I hold my tongue at times attempting to spare your feelings because the truth is I really love you  even…

LOST

                          I was lost in the love of you. Used by the love of you. Why? I would give my life for you. Gave up my friends for you.  Left some of my hopes, dreams and desires behind for you.  And all I ask of you is for…

G M O

                          I’m custom made and worth all of the time you spend getting to know me. GOD Modified Original, never  artificial, always growing, learning and exploring.  There’s none other like me. So if I’m the one you want to have in your space, take the time needed to…

Make a Decision

What will you do if I lose my job today? Will you find another place to stay or fall flat on your ass with grief and sorrow… Having no hope for tomorrow? You would lose your damn mind that’s what I think! Because even though you think the sun rises and sets on your black ass…you would die if it…

LOOKING FORWARD

What’s behind me?  Shoot…I don’t know.  Why… you ask? Because I’m looking forward! Yesterday is already gone and can’t be changed. I can learn something from it yeah… but it happened and it’s over so…. I’m looking forward to experiencing life in many different ways and I don’t care about what anyone else has to say because I’m too busy…

LET GO

At some point in life you have to let go of the things that are not good for you. People who are not good for you. Jobs that are not what you really want and be happy in your life. Most High has already made the path for you to travel and put good people in your path. A job…

NO DRAMA!!

YES…I’m intelligent when I talk to you and get my point across to you. If you push me too far best believe you’ll get cursed out. Do you feel me ’cause I’m real and I have NO DRAMA in my life. I’m gonna argue with you…NOT!   I’m gonna write about you…YES! And tell it all to get it out of…

THAT’S ALL

Never a day goes by when I don’t wanna see you, smell you, feel you.  I dreamed of you last night I miss you. I miss the good times, the getting to know you times The staying up all night on the phone talking about random things times. I even miss the disagreement, or what I’d rather call opportunities to…

I NEED YOU

I need you to hold me when I’m down I need you to hold me when I’m happy I need you to hold me just because…sometimes I need you to need me the way that I need you Not because I asked you to But because you need me too!! I need you to kiss me in the morning I…

ME FIRST

Am I being selfish ‘cause I only want you in my space when I wanna see you? I need companionship but I’m moody too so imma tell you to go away but… I really want you to ask me can you stay.  Sometimes I might push so you can pull ‘cause I wanna feel needed by you not just needy for you.…

CALL

She writes sticky notes of pink….in ink I think…on the wall to remind herself to call. Who? me?  Nah…you. She writes to make sure that she does not forget to take time out of her busy day to call. Who? me?  Nah…you. Do you know how much she loves you? Can you even tell? Just because her vocab is limited…

KUUMBA (CREATIVITY)

You try but you can’t rob me of my creativity You try to tell me what is beautiful in your fashion magazines. I make my own designs and call them mine I don’t need your label on it to show the world that it is just so. Perfectly created as I am… perfectly so. My natural hair can be short…

ON PURPOSE

I love each and every one of you because you are so you! Uniquely you and beautiful too. With your glasses and braces, light and dark faces, nappy, straight and curly hair. Tall, short and skinny or fat, I love you and all of that. You have a purpose in the world and a lifetime of discoveries You were made…

SHUT UP!

Sometimes it’s just good to be quiet Don’t talk too much Just remain silent Sometimes it’s just good to be quiet Don’t talk too much Just remain silent A lot of people talk a lot but ain’t got shit to say Just talk to hear themselves talk each and everyday Know something about everything and everything about nothing Seems like…
