Black Woman

Her mind travels a million miles As she stares in the distance with sad eyes When questioned, she lies about being okay, through fake smiles Yet, her thoughts grow more troublesome as time flies In her thoughts, she’s cursing the color of her skin Society has deemed her big lips, wide nose, nappy hair, and […]

A poem for me and about me

Oh, my heart is filled with mixed emotions. It is like an open letter that asks; who am I? My mind inquires: “can you riddle me this”? And I respond: “but, I remember”.   With eyes on me, I can only smile while reflecting on life lessons. In my eyes is blind trust seeking a […]

But I Remember…(Domestic Abuse)

But I remember… “Quit your job!” You demanded, one breadwinner is all we need Shocking, how from then on, your control over me grew in increasing speed But I remember… All it took was that one day when…, wait a minute, I can’t recall the beginning I mean, one day, we started to argue, all […]

Hello, How are you? It’s been so long since we last talked Just checking on you How’s life treating you? Are you doing well? Hopefully, life has been kinder to you than it has been to me Well you know, from time to time, you have crossed my mind Can’t say I don’t miss you […]

In the far distance, I saw the light As my heart beat sped up, I closed my eyes Thoughts spiraled out of control as I saw the tunnel I’m going into cardiac arrest, call 911 Sorry, it was a false alarm, carry on It’s happening again, but stronger this time Breathlessness, hyperventilation, I can’t breath […]

Eyes on Me

It’s funny how everybody is watching you Captivated by your good looks But, your eyes are on me Like the hot summer sun shining at midday I feel your eyes burn through my soul Baby, keep looking my way Don’t look back, keep your eyes on me Flustered by the emotions From your piercing gaze […]

If you gaze up upon the stars You’ll see The beauty shining down on you Inexplicable, oh it’s magical Such wonderful view, oh it’s beautiful And if you take a look around Breathe in The air and sights surrounding us Irreplaceable, such is life on earth Oh it’s marvelous, oh it’s beautiful And if you […]

Dreams come true

I’d travel a million miles and back Until I get to you   I’d climb up mountains high and low So I can fall in your arms   I’d sing lullabies all day and night To see that twinkle in your eyes   I’d make silly jokes when you are sad To put a smile […]
