Happy Wednesday everyone!
Black History Month is still in full effect! Anyone who hasn’t seen Black Panther yet need to get their lives together and go see that movie! Not only was it an epic ground breaking film, Black Panther the movie and the soundtrack has made history and is shattering box office records worldwide. I am overjoyed with black pride this month! WAKANDA FOREVER !!!!!
Now on to this week’s topic…
While cleaning out my email I found a lot of my old poems and I’ve decided to open up and share a few with you guys.
At the beginning of this month I stated that February will be about highlighting black artists! This week I’ve decided to travel down memory lane and give you guys a glimpse of my art: writing. I created this blog to display my creative writing skills so why not?
Disclaimer: The poems I am sharing were written at different times in my life. Lust and love had me going through a lot of ups and downs. I was young and wild, although I’m still pretty young and still pretty wild. lol I was trying to heal from heart breaks in private. I held everything in and wrote out my feelings. These poems aren’t to bash anyone. They were written about different people who were in my life at one point. My poetry tells my story, my experiences, my life. It has everything to do with me and only me. I am posting these poems to share my evolution and growth as a woman and as a writer. Opening up and sharing my poetry is a big deal for me and something I’ve never done. Thank you guys for reading. ❤
I rather u just rob me instead of set me up like this.. I’m in the middle of no where lost trying to figure out how to get back to that girl i was before i met u
Up All Night
Going No Where Fast
I entertained guys to try to replace you
the feeling you gave me
I used to yearn for your touch
the energy between us
Just being around u made me glow
The last day of this chapter.
The cure was to drown myself with work
Lust turned to dysfunctional love
Through wet eyes
I’d recite a prayer
Not only to heal my heart but to someday replace sorrow with a love I deserve
I spent my final goodbye with one last good long shower cry
I wrote down my resolution before departing to the New Years Party
After my career goals I did something different
I hoped for new ‘love’
A feeling I’ve skated away from for so long
Love was never something I openly welcomed, I attached love with hurt and neglect, But you were my silver lining in a dark cloud, You replaced the rain with a beautiful smile
You are more than I could have ever imagined
My living proof that God answers prayers Evidence there’s power in speaking things into existence
8 months in and everyday is still pure bliss
I’ve learned love doesn’t hurt, it isn’t a struggle, it isn’t a tug a war, I don’t have to compete for affection and it isn’t hard when its true
I thank God everyday for you
Your smile, your laugh, that face you make when I say something crazy
The way you care for me and make sure I’m happy
God was really showing out when he blessed me with you
Patience and understanding
Hard work and motivation
Ambition, Drive, Faith
Lasting True Love, Sorrow filled Poems turn to love letters
At a time where life is chaotic you are exactly what I need
Thank you for being you
You’ve shown me the true definitions of love and freedom.
Freedom to be myself.
To dream, openly.
Free from judgement and other ppls opinions of me
You hear me
When i cry
When i dream out loud
When i’m trying to figure myself out
There is always someone there
talking me thru it,
cheering me on,
When im uneasy,
You calm me
True real authentic love
In those moments where im scared to take a leap of faith i feel you telling me its ok i got you.
You provide clarity where there was confusion
I see God in you
I pray for you
I worry about it,
Then you remind me we are always in this together 💗
Well that’s all for now folks!
I know it was a long one this week so if you read the whole thing…
Shout out to you!
Again, Thank you guys for all the support!
See you next week!!
