Intergalactic Traveler

Carrying you always, As your sweet spirit Sifts through the stars. A soul of dynamite, Temporarily enveloped by silent sleep,   Images of you Swim in my head. Each sentiment: A tidal wave washing over me.   You smell of the ocean– Hair radiating sunshine. Unshakeable sand, Forever sticking with me.   I hear your…

Details in Dallas

City lights slowly wake up, Smiling all around me. I’m reminded of Childhood dreams: Fancy suits and dazzling skirts, Strut up and down town. Youthful hearts race To the top of every glass tower. Architecture stretches their long fingers, Barely touching the sky Like I always wanted to. Here I am, Resting in this humidity….

Plead for Intimacy

Need to be more diligent in writing, this one is a couple of years old. Sometimes the productivity of me writing is editing and reviving the hidden poems. Not all old news is forgotten. ———————+—————————+———————— Open your mouth and speak. My ears yearn for your voice. Tell me all your secrets, Your random memories, Your…

Tears of Yours, Tears of Mine

Because lately poetry has finding me when I’m supposed to be engaged at my internship. ———-+———-+———- Baby please don’t cry Let me sing you a lullaby I know you’re shy But tell me why The expression on your skin: abide With how I feel inside These hearts don’t you know will soon collide But honey…

Breathing a Breeze

I cannot get enough, these outdoor songs draw me in —–+—–+—– What is it about the sky that causes me to feel my individuality? How does this breeze surround me when I feel alone? The soft tones of this evening Mesmerize and relax me I could almost tell you anything Irregular waves clap at the rhythm…

Oh yet again

Finding old gems, flipping through old memories. ————–+———-+————- This feeling Exploding notion Somehow slips down my shirt Slick and warm Slow yet consistent Wrapping its being Around my chest Once again All too familiar Fingerprints retraced Nervous and excited Yet slightly unforgiving Old memories on repeat Images of bliss Carefree and enticing Tasteful to this…

Ode to 2016

Simple and short Not poetic Just organized words. ———+————-+——— Blessed to know that I am loved Immensely more than than I realize Blessed under a God that saves me …and helps me to give when I have nothing left Blessed to live in this century In this country To be unashamed of my color, race,…

Endure

This poem is a little bit older, but this is a result of experimenting with romantic poetry. It’s not my most comfortable genre, but with one’s life comes many emotions to influence one’s literature. Written by the water, in cooler weather, after finals. ———-+———+———- I’m knocked over by a wave Every time you’re around My…

My Bittersweet Melody

The fear and shame to express one’s intimate emotions hinders one of the greatest and most honest quality of living. It divides an individual from their true self and separates them from the people they love and environment surrounding them. Life is beautiful, but there are segments that are almost impossible to accept or tolerate. God has helped me on this…

Just a Moment

This past year I’ve been learning more about the significance of self care. It doesn’t matter if one is an extrovert or an introvert, in my opinion they both have more in common than we would like to believe. Self care is something everyone needs, but not everyone does. Whenever I feel overwhelmed by tasks and emotions I stretch myself…

Hospital Parking Lot

Round and round Narrow spaces Sharp turns Low ceilings Too many cars   Too many visitors Too many people Full of exhaustion Sleepless nights Folded hands of prayer Anxiety sitting Making a home On every chest   Sympathy and love Sealed in a balloon A teddy bear Flowers feeding on tap water Leaning on cold…

Miles

They are blind They see no love No blood They cannot comprehend Unity The warmth of a hug The squeeze of your hand Rosy cheeks The heat of our laughs   Miles hold Only distance against us Time and a little money But it cannot separate Those who live within us   These treasured ones…
