*Not fine tuned because sometimes the best intentions for a poem can even lose my attention. As a poet, I just can't sit on idle thoughts for too long. Either the thoughts are captured or they are not. I see now that I have to develop patience for both my gift and inspiration.

Scared
Its a bitch when love is scared.
Love don't love you and,
Love don't care.
Frightening.
Yeah, check that EnVogue tune.
Love can hurt but, hurt ain't love.
Question mark.

Love can be scared
And neglected like an unwanted
Step-child by the
Always Crying Foul...

Why is your heart always
In cardiac arrest?

Remain open, don't protest,
Less stress.
Smile, attract, embrace
Your abundant lot.
Share, don't hog, be an asset.
Flip your dirt. act worthy,
And most importantly, digress.

Because really it ain't just about you.

"So stop ya' blood clot crying...
Owww." (Biggie/Jay-Z)

Because this "end" is real simple -
Have faith.

Unforgiven Business Part Deux

Sista, let me tame that flame
That wanes in your silent eyes.
Can I tenderly kiss each soft
Brown subject of your being,
That has been hijacked,
Stolen, and objectified?

Allow me to say sorry,
Without you labeling me
A "sorry ass muthaf*cka."
And willingly accept my plea to
Want to work it out.

'Cause I just can't stand,
I just can't stand,
To look at you like that...
A wounded pillar of salt,
Sitting defeated,
On
The
Other
Side
Of our red sea.

But, if you ain't talkin' to me,
If you just ain't talkin' to me ...

Then,
Can you spare an ounce of
Forgiveness for both of OUR
Weathered hearts?

Shoes in LoveImage by D.so via Flickr


I didn't want to think today.
So loneliness stayed quiet.
Sadness went on vacation.
And hurt and pain ran away.

I didn't want to think today.
My laughter hid in a bubble.
The lumps stayed at bay.
And smiles made cameos in my silent eyes.

I didn't want to think today.
I didn't want to think today.

Don't penetrate my wall today.

I didn't want to think today.
I didn't want to think today.
So I didn't hear that brotha say...

(To be continued...)

Free in her beauty
She is not the status quo,
His vision is clear.
