My Life Be Like, poetry

Ending

Painted upon her empty canvas  Used me to get her advances.  I was lost she made me feel found  She was distressed but I made her sound.  We were going through the motions  But I guess I’ll toss my love to the ocean:  Ancestors, ancestors hear my plea  Please send a woman who’ll love me.

SAFETY NET

Trapped in a bubble “protected.”My own fears are leaving me neglected.Why do these walls come up once the emotions come out?What am I afraid of?I’m alone.Not because there is no desire for my company.But because company can break my heart.Abandon me.Love me one day and ridicule me the next.I want love just as much as… Continue reading SAFETY NET

His Love

His love is unconditional. His love is deep. His love is red. Your love is younger for older. The darker the berry the sweeter the juice. The prettier the woman the easier to misuse . You are the buckle that holds my body into safety. Flexible with my movement but could snap my neck in… Continue reading His Love

Love, the verb

Call this a song, a poem. Just be sure to put love in front.  You’ve been with me through all my different hairstyles  I still remember when I made sure to wear mascara whenever we were together  Then I stopped  You didn’t notice the difference  Thirteen years later and I’m so thankful that smile is… Continue reading Love, the verb

Love & Eye by Vontress Renae’

I met a girl once who seemed so sad, almost inconsolable. We sat down for coffee because I had nothing to do and the "hurt" woman in me wanted to comfort her and  somehow find a way to comfort myself. We talked about life, shared a few laughs and then we got on the topic… Continue reading Love & Eye by Vontress Renae’
