📝Poetry: The creation of art through words!!

There was a time and place
That love had lost it’s face
No longer capable to see
The essence of its beauty
All the pain and flaws
Masked its face with scars
Heart stopped
Soul lost
Worth sold at no cost
Love was just a distant view
But then came you
And in you I saw me
Opening within me, clarity
That you were the face of love
The end result of a problem solved
And Lessons achieved
Granted you ... a beautiful blessing of love!

I love you more than you love yourself
But just me loving you won't help
Help you overcome your vice
That will eventually ruin your life
Pain festers deep in your soul
As you sink to the bottom of a bottle
Having to face your reality
When it becomes empty
And night quickly becomes morning
Entering into a day of new beginnings
And endless possibilities
That you can't seem to see
Beyond your own fatality
Of becoming your worst enemy
I try to understand
And lend a helping hand
But what more can I do
If you won't let me help you
Fight through this sickness
That will one day leave you breathless
Stripped of any chance to correct
All the self abuse and neglect
For you my soul aches
My heart yo...

Dear The Woman, 😌

A heart so heavy, filled with unspeakable joy yet uncontrollable pain. What is love worth having If it’s not yours to have. But it has grown beyond the unexpected that we can’t fathom the thought of letting go. Hmmmm as if we really have a choice. It’s OFFICIAL, signed, sealed and delivered ... the ink is forever dried. The “I DO’s” are etched into the Universe like high shining stars. As I stand below looking above at the beauty of what I once loved journey on with another she scarcely knew. So who really is the dumb one. Maybe I am because I came second, tho it is said it’s I whom they truly loved of the two. Though her heart is torn between the two; her ebony and her Ivo...

I wear the skin of a race that many wish was erased, I AM BOLD.
I bear the face darkly golden with melanin, I AM RICH.
Through my eyes I see the visions of my ancestors, I AM WOKE.
My energy radiates from the vibrations of African drums, I AM THE SUN.
My soul hums melodies to sooth the cries of souls lost to ignorance and hate, I AM A HEALER.
I possess the gift to foster and give life ... I AM WOMAN.
I ..... AM .... ROYALTY

RANDOM THOUGHT:

To truly be set free, you have to confront those pains that comes in the form of flesh. It becomes hard to heal completely if often times you have to look the shades of your past in the face and love them in spite of. Some you can’t always break away free from because blood runs deep. So you stay silent, until silence starts to become to loud.

A WOMAN’S CRY

Please see me
Beyond my outer beauty
Please love me
And be my serenity
My peace
When I’m feeling weak
Don’t hold me at fault
Because I’m perfectly flawed
I’m still deserving of love call
And willing to surrender my all
Giving all access to my heart
Just please don’t tear it apart
I’ve been down that treacherous road
That eventually came to a close
Leading to a dead end
With no warning before it began
But still I give love a chance
In spite of the disappointments
Hoping the day will come
When I’ll find that one
That will look deep within eyes
Loving what they see inside
And not just my pretty face
Nor the thickness of my shape
But who will see me for me
And love me unconditio...

Every time I see your face
I fall deeper into loves debt
Heart becoming more invested
When it can't afford to forfeit it
Credit or debit
Withdrawal or deposit
But there’s no quantity
That can measure loves quality
There’s no need to overdraft
When loves in the negatives
Because it has guaranteed protection
For all types of faulty transactions
Love never goes broke
Even when the heart is broken
Unfamiliar checks get put on hold
Fraud accounts quickly get closed
Though love was made perfected
We will never perfect it
But still we must take a chance
And invest in the romance
Putting it all on the table for love
When you believe they are the one.

You are like a flawed diamond
That reflects a spectrum
Of its own kind
Each line represents
Different aspects of your existence
A luminescent projection
Of your beauties imperfection
Like an abstract piece of art
To understand, you must know the heart
From which it was created
Starting from the basic
Concepts
That led to the conception
Of a beautiful revelation
That speaks volumes
Through visualizing
Reflective colored rays
Each revealing different ways
That defines your present being
A truth so unrevealing
It’ll captivate your mind
As your soul it’ll confine
Like the beauty of a rainbow
After a storm.

RANDOM THOUGHT:

Pain creates monsters within us that we never thought could exist. The greatest cause of those pains is love. But If we truly loved ourselves, those monsters could have never manifest.

The beautiful figure
That invades my dreams
Emotionally possessing me
Becoming a part of me
Like stars etched
Into the dark lit sky

My heart could only give seven f***s
I done gave out six
I only got one left in the clip
So be careful what you wish
You might be the one to catch the heat
For the last six that didn’t meet
Love’s life expectancy
Due to conditional expectations
And egotistical provocations
That’ll awaken the inner beast
That’s been tamed to Rest In Peace
Shit can get real bitter and sweet
And I’ll bear no sympathy
Because I’ll rewrite your life
And rearrange your mind
Leave you wandering to find
The answers to the question “Why”
While your heart beat slow
Cuz love don’t live here no mo
No longer receiving advances
To incur more chances
To rekindle a love
You clearly took advantage of
So if you decide to ste...

Dear Valentine ...

Excite me
Through my mentality
The indescribable sensuality
In the intertwining of minds
Seeking to find
The depths of another being
To create a greater existing
In this time called life
Expanding further than oneself
Thru learning another’s inner self
Living and loving without expectations
For we create our own predictions
Through our universal reactions
To the actions of the physical faction

Enlighten me
Through the EYE that sees
Beyond the foreseeable extremities
That stands in plain sight
Then fades into the darken night
To hide from revealing the truths
That EYE can clearly see through
Into your darkest corners
Where your pains and feelings hoarder
Like a junked co...

They could not see your true beauty
Because they were to stuck in their own vanity.
Creating insanity
In the heart and minds
Of those confined
In their webs they weaved
Putting souls to sleep
Consuming the energy
Causing you to neglect your beauty
To no longer be seen
Restricting your inner being
From exposing your truths
And the greatness in you
Because they are too vain
To see past their own pain
For They rather feed
Off your want for love
Because they lack the ability to love
So now your heart is broken
And they have chosen
To journey on their way
Leaving you behind like yesterday
Not trusting tomorrow
Because your heart feels borrowed
And misused
Shattered
And abused
But you’ve lost ...

Oh how I love the way she flirts
The way her lips twerks
At the beginning of her smile
The sparks in her eyes
As her lashes bat a million times
A million times my heart flutters
As it skips beats every other
Beat
Oh how her voice is so sweet
Tickling my ears as to tease
Like the softness of whisper
As her breath enters
Like a gentle breeze
Light but heavy ... enough
To sweep you off your feet
Ascend
Into the depths of outer space
By entering the inner places
Where secrets and wonders lie
Waiting to be realized
Of the greatness bestowed
Hiding deep within her soul
Yearning
To become of the knowing
Of unconditional love
As two hearts beat as one
That they form an union
Bearing no possibility ...

She doesn’t know her true worth, still out trying to search. For that one kind that reminds her of the last kind. Wanting new is nothing bad, but you block your blessings hold on to the past. When your future is waiting.

Dear Stranger,
I do not know your name nor life but I what I do know is that you exist. Because you are matter that matters, who bears a purpose deeper than the surface. Do not let the trials of yesterday make you lose sight of today, blinding you from what’s to come tomorrow. Through these words I transmit positive energy and love, and with these two combined, may your light shine.

Chills from the vibrations of the depth of the voice. As the wind from the train brushed her skin ... gentle ... just has they would hold her close. Heart pounding as she anticipated turning to met their eyes, once again. For distance and time kept them apart long enough.

As each page Is ripped out, my heart aches
Because the words I can no longer erase. For the ink has set in, forever imprinted. Tears has moistened the page, memories continue to invade. Creating a war between my heart and mind. She was my Queen to reign for all time. But no longer is she mine. But still my heart is confined.

Lost .. feeling like leaves in fall
Shook by the winds call
All that withers away
As the seasons change
Ridding the old
For change that is to come
Planting of new seeds
To blossom in the spring
After the bearing of trees
Of the lost of its leaves
From the crisp of winters breeze
Burying of the old
Beneath the snows cold
As this season goes
Another is surely to come
Rebirthing things of new
From what use to be
Everything is a cycle
And recycle
Living a situation
On repetition
Never under standing the reason
For each season
Failing to acknowledge and see
That the lesson is in the trees.

The art of manifesting
Is the process of becoming
The becoming of a greater self
Within the beat of every breathe
Feeling the exalting of life
Overcoming every fight
As you take flight
To unimaginable heights

•Untitled

We are seed
From strange fruits
That hung from trees
While their nectars bleed
Upon the roots
And from it stronger they grew
Bearing leaves of truths untold
Of lives that’ll never grow old
As from the branches they hung
Until their voices no longer sung
The cries of becoming the unknown
Like silent words over an instrumental
Uprooted from their land of origin
Where the sun kissed their skin
Blackened with Melanin
Flavored and well seasoned
The Originals ones
The Children of the Sun

The canvas behind the paint
Is excitingly blank
To a creative mind
That even the blind
Can create
Wonders on its blank space
Like the mask we often place
Upon our face
To hide the emptiness
That suppresses our greatness
Because one is blind
To the creativity of their mind
Failing to see past
The paint on the canvas

I think I known you before
But it was thousands of lives ago
Your were just a seed
And I was your soil
I nurtured and watched you grow
As I shelters the roots of your soul
From a seed your flourished
Rising above the erosion
Fertilized by societies demise
To cause a divide
Between you and I
The soil that births the seed
Into the greatness it’s meant to be
A beautiful flower
That blossoms only to one day wither
But can never erase its existence
Planted at the very beginning
Of time
Thousands of life times... ago
When you first were planted in my soul!!

You fed my soul before I even understood its hunger. You placed me on a high that lifted me when the ground didn’t feel solid. You kept me hoping when dreams didn’t seem real. When the world became chaotic you reminded me that there’s a limitless universe.

I have a story to tell but don’t know where to begin. Feels like I’m looking at a blank black board with all the space to write. But Do I start right to left or left to right. If I start at the end to the beginning will the end never come. Or If from the beginning to end, will the beginning be forgotten. How do I start from the beginning when it’s hard to find? The roots of a bloodline. Will another continue the story when I no longer can? Or will the ending fade like the traces of the beginning. Captured, torn, drowned, burned, renamed, enslaved, branded, stolen, rewritten ... forms of BEING ERASED ... leaving the only truth that couldn’t be misplaced ... the color of our race.

Stop ... is this really how we want to live. Always looking back over our shoulders at the shadows of our past. Constantly fighting a war that no one will win, as long as we continue to meet ignorance with ignorance. It doesn’t matter how, when or what color we were born. We are all born in the middle, trying to understand our beginning before reaching our ending of this story called Life!!! Stop reacting and let’s start Acting!!

There’s many that wants us to be confined within the darkness of our skin but what they do not understand is that it’s within darkness that a light shines brighter. Like stars in the darkest of nights, but it takes more than one star to brighten the night and form constellations which makes the it beautiful. ❤️💜❤️💜

I loved her for years
Shed so many tears
Built up even more fears
Until my heart became seared
Leaving scars from wounds
As the pain I consumed
Until Love had no room
Nor strength to overcome
The disaster we had become
Having lost sight of the true
Meaning
Of I love you
Disconnected communication
From anger and frustration
Tho we saw the love in one another eyes
We couldn’t let go of our foolish pride
Words spoken demeaning ones soul
Makes the healing process more slow
My soul still aches for her presence
But I’m loving her from a distance
Because I can’t handle feeling I failed her twice
Though we both committed wrongs
We still couldn’t get it right
