Tell the damn news

Today a man got shot Yesterday a vial of disease was dropped Tomorrow a bomb will detonate And right now a country is filled with hate She was thrown of the balcony left in a comatose state He went to the church and was violently raped Terrorists are planning something new And your neighbor is…

Never ending Story

Like flames it licks every inch of my frame My darkness has grown it now chants my name Alluring, its sweet nothingness is beckoning The restraints within the abyss are less than nothing The shackles of reality will kiss the floor Wings of dark feathers will let me soar Forced will be a term banned…

Scattered Frame

Beautiful horrid defying but loss screams but silent Whispers in a crowd Love by law, nature by rule Timed with patience, in an endless fool Don’t win yet forsake all, fall but call when you hit Forget the pain jump past rope Burn the look Ice the cold Kiss the cheeks Mind uneasy fingers move…

Craving Touch

Sensation through warmth, excitement through calm Absolute perfection held in a flawed palm Intimacy through touch, painted with a new brush Shivers turn to shudders, as the end comes ever closer Awake in a dream of US, drunk … hoping to not become sober Intoxicated by your scent mesmerized by your taste Concentrated on the…

Blood Fresh Blood

My heart used to beat to the tunes of her kiss She knitted a blanket from custom made words to cover with She embedded me with the strength of ten men Allowed me to achieve greatness over and over again But now my veins run dry Unable to see the silver lining so I don’t…

Afro Candy

I like candy, the way the sugar meets your tongue The way you feel when it’s all done Candy used to be a rush equal to any gift If there is anything that is something I miss Remember when you were young and you had to eat vegetables and fruit Remember when you were done,…

I don’t know

I don’t know what other dreams I can give you I don’t know what other words can stay true I don’t know how to create another dream to achieve I don’t know how to stay when I want to leave I don’t know what to write feels like I wrote it all I don’t know…

These Damn Poets

They lined the framework of my wordplay They manipulate the sentences I say Reorder my letters, restamp my syllables Correct my multis, make my lines creditable They demonstrated the pictures I illustrated To verify that I would see why the wings on my pieces no longer fly They diamond plated my bars, platinum gilded my…

Chance after chance

You dreamt we were together We hoped it would get better, struggled through issues Your tears were met by tissues My fears were met by reality And now the puddle of affection runs empty Scars run deeper than any vocabulary dare express The chances for love have just become one less Shards of dreams lay…

You love I

You are so sexy, the way you stand there and perform, is heavenly So self-assured, so confident yet not cocky The way your pink lips exhale galaxies for me to get lost in I let go, and float on the flow of your words my mind the ship The way you create life from a…

See for yourself

I am in this city where lies have been stacked upon each other till they reach the sky The fumes from passing cars must have affected my senses and rendered me high Because I swear to you, I can see pigs fly I came here from this small town called “Other People’s Experiences” The mayor…

Dont listen

Let those tears flow, release them into the world; let your fears go The wings your future will fly in on are missing more than a few feathers But perfect is nothing more than an illusion created by a society trying to hide its own flaws Run till you feel you can catch the light…

I stink

There he goes, bag over his shoulder as if he is carrying the weight of the world Contemplating if something this heavy should be bench-pressed or curled Each step towards this place fills his body with a unique sense of being As if every muscle in his body knows what he is going to be…

Im single

People have this idea that you can only be happy in a relationship As if your life is meant to be spent with somebody else And if you have failed to find that person, you have failed in life itself Dismissing the idea of growing on your own and being whole alone Two parts don’t…

My hair

These dreads are a reflection of my rebellion against the normThey keep my sanity together when society once again throws me into a stormWithout them I could stand in a culture meant for a select fewSome believe that your hair tells everything about youThe problem is that the story that is being told is often…

FPP

The disgust that arises from this concept is beyond vileConsuming this revolting construction will taint any future smileCalling it repulsive would be a complimentI would get nauseous if it even came close to my lipsHaunted by nightmares were I forced to swallow itA hideous concept being perpetuated by a gross sense of tasteThe ingredients used…
