Growth..

Within myself
My power
Chruns
Turning over
Waking from
Slumber as I
Continue to
Sprout and push
Forth from
The
Soil of the delusions
Set before me

Growing
Still beyond
The
Darkness.

Power…

I want to
Know you

Everything you
Are I want
To learn

Every flaw I
Want to claim
As mine and take you
Beyond sentiments
And mere imaginings

Give you
Reality
Untamed

Where we don’t
Have to be seen
Where we
Can be
Free

Indulge
In depths of
Souls
Intertwined

And recite
Verse unencumbered

And
Raw…

I want
To know you

Your
Aura calls
To me

Your energy
Holds me in
Awe

And I long
To let loose
To
You

All of
My

Power.

Loner

“Loner”

I continue to
Try and be
The best person
I can but I’m
Always seen
As inadequate
Or made to feel
As if I’m
Not
Enough

Or as if
The skin
I was born
In is my calling
Card to failure…

I’ve never felt
As if I fit
In or belonged to
This world but
Still I try to
Hold my head up
And press on

But lately within
Myself I’ve been
Losing
The light

Succumbing
To this feel
Of loneliness
Where only I
Know the
Pain
Behind these
Eyes

That no
One cares to
Look…

I thought that
I’d finally found
Myself after so
Long of looking

I thought
Finally someone
Would understand

But now
I know I’ll
Face this
World coldly
Alone

A
Loner

With no
Space

With no
Land.

“Raging… Phoenix.. “

I become
Something I
Don’t recognize
When your hands
Collide with
My flesh and
Your lips
Trace the outline
Of my being
While I arch
Up to greet
Your hardness

And invite you
Refuge within
My soul where you
Cover my inhibitions
With your sweet
Sins…

Again I
Become
Something
I don’t
Recognize
Beneath your
Touch

A phoenix
Rising from
The ashes

Reborn and reshaped
By the
Grace of
Your

Love.

Unruly

 

Hands squeezing
Hips
Eyes looking into
Mine
Asking for permission
To undress
The quivers of
Me

Asking to
Dive deeply into
The untamed parts
Of me and rule
There

And I
Surrender
Saying yes
To my flesh
As lips
Place
Heat to my
Own
Causing shudders
Of anticipation through
Me

While our
Bodies
Press
And our
Wants
Intertwine
Conducting a symphony of
Tempered lovers

Becoming

Unruly.

My Hair…

 

My hair
Is happily
Nappy
Coiled crinkly
Goodness
Unconventional
Intensity

My hair
Is phenomenal
A representation
Of my eloquent
Melaninated
Thick thighed
Heavy lipped
Self

My hair is
A reflection
Of stars caught in
A blanket
Of night
My heritage
Quilt of colorful
Strength

My hair
Is the roots
That are dug
In me

My crown
That I
Carry
Loud and

Proud.

Hunger

 

The hunger
In my
Thoughts
Turning me
On with
Visions
Of you
Touching
On my
Passion
While I
Moan
Anticipating the
Heavy of
You

Invading
The space
Between my sanity

Pushing
Deeply
In the
Divide of
My nature

And I
Savor
Every inch
Of your
Throbbing
Dimensions
As you
Pour into
Me your

Desires…

The hunger
In my thoughts
Of you

Turning me on
I’m gone

Wanting you
Here

Dressed
In

Me.
