Give me a minute
I have to think
I dont have the right words to say
This isnt going as planned
But if you're patient
I promise  you'll like what you hear
In fact, I'll make you
Fall for me.  
When you're tired,
and your day is over, and your temper is alseep,
I'll be there.
Im never in a hurry
Im just tired
I get frustrated so Im sorry for shouting
Its not my intetion
This isnt going as planned
But if youre patient
I promise youll like what you hear
In fact, Ill make you fall for me.
I wont give up
I am relentless
My love for you is relentless
I'll forever search for you
Until the end of time
This isnt going as planned
But if youre patient

You can find me somewhere in between inspiring my nieces, becoming a mother, while working on myself, killing the negativity in my head, and conquering my goals from within.

Why didnt anyone tell me the truth?
No one told me that I would cry more than I laugh.
I didnt know I wouldnt have time to finish a single cup of coffee or crave solitude like I never have before
I lost a part of myself and a big part of my life.
No one told that part either.
I am forever changed.
Some days are beautiful. Absolute blessings.
Some days feel like curses.
I never knew Id find solace in a pair of sweatpants for 5 days straight.
There's moments of ugliness, unworthiness and the feeling of loss of love.
Moments of pride, awe and amazement.
The weight from carrying so many titles gets weary from time to time and
I do get tired of being tired.
Again, how come no one told me t...

My heart aches
I keep looking for the reset button but cant seem to find it
Each day I try my best
Even though I feel pieces of myself slipping farther and farther away
I need your warmth
I need you to tell me that we will be okay
The woman looking back at me isnt the same woman I met years ago
She used to feel free
She used to dance
She used to laugh
Where is that damn reset button?

How did we get here? We said we'd always be friends. Those late night phone calls that began with a simple hello but ended in deep lines of poetry hours later. I kept building walls all around me but with each moment togeher, a brick in the wall became loose. I remember how your father hurt you and you brought me your tears. It was the first time I saw you naked. Your heart so raw and uncovered. I told myself we were just friends. Who was I kidding right? Then the planet decided to shift, separating us on 2 different life paths. Father time decided to declare war and sent us in the arms of another. Id see your face at times while I sipped my coffee. I remember you sending me caramels because ...

I want to laugh
Loudly and freely
I want to be a dope mommy
And watch my heart walk before me
I want to travel the world
And see different cultures
I want to eat delicious food
And speak different languages
I want to make money
And give it away
I want to love the same man
Over and over
And over
Again.
Yup, that is what I want.

The things I never tell anyone.
I think that moment was it.
The moment I knew I loved you.
Yeah, I think thats it.

My dreams have become so real lately. I wake up, I think,
and can still feel the presence of those I had just met.
Im starting to wonder if Im trying to tell myself something
You know what im talking about.
An inate, deep and gutly instinct
A calling
Im scared though.
The world is getting to me.
Im afraid that I am forced to stand up and find out for myself what truly lies within me that would promote change to others .
I want to be able to tell myself that I am doing my part.
I want to make a mark, even if its just a small one.
So Im left with one question that eats at me all the time.
Is it really wrong of me to doubt what I was taught to believe?

It saddens me to see him hurt you. I can see the pain in your eyes everytime he reminds you that you are 2nd choice. What I dont understand is how you dont see yourself as I see you? He gives you love in the form of false hopes. He gives you stale kisses, sharp words, and yet, I watch from a far how his manipulation runs so deep in your veins. My dear, I beg you. Please love yourself and surrender your self. My shelf has no more room for your bottled tears. Funny how your mirror has 2 faces I see the essence of a queen while all you see is a sad girl. You keep asking for directions when ironically, you were never lost. Im here to walk with you. Theres plenty of room on this path. Im here to b...

remember that one night?
i stepped out bold that night.
you answered the door.
I stayed that night.
john legend was going hard
"Out of all of the girls, you're my one and only girl"
You said that was my song.
We got down that night.
It was different.
Deep. Raw.
Lovely.
You blew on my skin
and
played with my hair.
My legs were wrapped around you.
We laughed.
We stared at each other.
You blew on my skin some more.
You burned me up
and cooled me down.
Damn, I love you.
You made me your girl that night.
That night became many.
You made me your wife.
Heres to a lifetime.

Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself, and thats even worse. When you have bad days that just wont let up, I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not. You are not your mistakes. You are not damaged goods or muddy from from your failed expectations. You are not the opinion of someone who doesnt know you. You are a product of the lessons youve learned. You are wiser because you went through something terrible and you are the person who has survived a bunch of rainstorms and kept walking. I now believe that pain makes you stronger and I now believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets ...

Im suffocating
your love is intoxicating yet poisonous at the same time
my wounds are open and swollen
i dont think you see how my tears pour salt on my wounds
i left my cocoon because you told me it was okay to spread my winds
youre draining the color in my sails
nothing left but stale pastels

I plucked the ashes from my cigarette in rhythm with his heartbeat
As I batted my eyelashes
tears fell from his eyes
His love is so warm
My eyes are so cold
Have a good day he says
I pluck the ashes again
Have a nice life Love,
and put my cigarette out,
just like I did his love.

Marriage is not beautiful. You see the absolute worst in someone. You see them when theyre mad, sad, being stubborn, when theyre being so unlovable that it makes you scream. But then you also get to see them smile and laughing so uncontrollably hard, tears running down their face that they start making weird noises. You see them at 3 am sound asleep while the world is quiet and youre eating in the kitchen. You get to see a side of them that no one else does. Its snorting while laughing, its hot tears when it feels like the world is closing in on you, its farting, bed head and bad breath, its random dances, its anger and joy. Im learning that marriage isn't beautiful but it is amazing. Its kno...

He knows my favorite color and notices when I wear perfume. He knows how I love hot Fritos and how I despise celery. He pushes me to do my best and never forgets to tell me I am beautiful. He plays with my hair and tries to paint my toenails. He never fails to say sorry 1st. He writes me love letters and recites poetry. He gives me his loyalty and devotion. He understands my madness and helps me silence inner demons. We learn from each other and share our dreams. He lays down his defenses to give me insight. He protects me at all costs. We say grace together. He respects my boundaries and independency. He knows my secrets and never judges me. We refuse to be perfect. He loves me past my flaws...

Im sitting in my work chair,
the padded leather back has always been a simple pleasure,
ive been staring out my office window not realizing that 30 minutes of my deadline have been surrendered to day dreaming
everything seems oddly perfect today
chances are something is amiss yet I cannot seem to put my pretty little lavendar fingernail on it
My eyes have always seen the most devoutly positive attributes in every day, every moment, every minutes that passes but I ask myself if i am taking it to the extreme?
yes, Im human but I dont need any bad judgement calls
especially on a perfect day such as this
This lucrative offer has been sitting in my lap for quite some time and even with the wo...

he held out his hand and in it was the world
he tells me that he has been to so many places but in my arms, he says he's home
his skin is dirty, i guess from all the traveling
his hair is wild and stands straight up at the lining of his forhead, just like his confidence
how does he do that?
i have brace myself before he even kisses me
as if my heart isnt strong enough to feel such passion
God, he is so beautiful
sometimes i get sad when those big brown deep as the ocean eyes lay to rest because i am robbed of such beauty
as if 24hrs of waiting will be the death of me

it just occured to me that i am like a $20.00 bill
wrinkled and a little torn
a few stains here and there
Not much use at times
Sometimes lost, sometimes found
but no matter what,
I am always worth the full $20.

Double tap
The heart appears
I can feel your eyes
I know what youre thinking
why her?
Double tap
The heart appears
Why must you be so foolish?
You threw him away and never
looked back remember?
I am his comfort
I am his team mate  
I represent everything you didnt
Double tap
The heart appears
Why do you torture yourself?
You gave him away and said he wasnt enough
He is my treasure now and I have no plan on letting him go
Why do you stalk our happiness.
I know he loves rainy days.
I know the size of his jeans.
I even know his deep dark secrets
and im sorry my dear, but you are a figment of his past
double tap
the heart appears
Do you cry when you look at our pictures?
Did you notice ...

He tried to give me diamonds
I answered back with concrete kisses
He tried to run his fingers through my hair and I walked away with wet shoes
The loud scream of the trains bustling makes me smile but he cries at the sound
I look forward to noon
He despises the sunrise
I know why
It serves as a painful reminder
I am ready to wander again and he stands there
beautifully confused
I taught him how to pack a suitcase and
I thought we had an understanding
"Alllll aboarddd!"
The conductor knows me so well.
He never can tell
am i staying
or catching the next train home?
He hates guessing games.

Theres a bluejay in my window
Hello Friend
He cocks his said to the to side and says hello sweetly
The sun is alive and bright
i love how the rays peek through and prisms appear on my forearms
my coffee is hot and strong
i stand still for a moment
taking in all that is around me
my hound dog looks at me curiously
i cant take a sip yet
The moment at hand it too precious to interrupt
i can smell my perfume on my collerbone
The dew outside is fresh
People ready to hustle and flow
Greenlights all the way
imagine that
I roll down my window and take a deep breath
ahh, i love the smell of opportunity
today is going to be great my friend

I come with a warning label.
Proceed with caution.
The most dangerous thing about me is that I respect myself.
I love my own company.
I am comfortable with silence and okay with being alone.
If you want me,
youre going to have to fight me,
for me.

Please hear me when I say that I do not need or ask you to fill the empty parts of me.
My heart and I are learning to do that on our own.
I want to be full on my own.
I yearn to be so complete that my soul shines so bright that I could light up a whole city.
I want to have you.
Whole, complete and nothing less because the both of us combined
will set the city on fire.
