Moonchild

Because I am just a moon And among you, Are many stars Shinning far brighter than I ever could In the midst of the brightest one I fall And stay away Until she leaves again Then I creep up with Rest… She even shines her light on me. What I did I do to deserveContinue reading “Moonchild”

AIDS Is No Stranger To Me

I remember coming home one afternoon and they had casually said “Elton is no more” [Elton was my friend A little boy who lived next door] I didn’t know much about AIDS But I knew that dirty word was Drenched in Death. See, I knew it was inevitable I knew that it was gonna happenContinue reading “AIDS Is No Stranger To Me”

Why is the devil so father-phobic?

“The devil has been trying to expunge every image that represents a loving faithful fathers from our culture. But why is the devil so father -phobic? Because he know that if  he can continue to destroy Galilee, through broken dads, it will keep us from discovering that there is a heavenly Father who can turnContinue reading “Why is the devil so father-phobic?”

I don’t do intimacy with strangers 

And although they don’t know the depths of my soul  Parts of them wonder about me when they’re alone Lip locking with my chakras  Because their “hellos” don’t sound like echoes  There’s more behind it It’s not emptiness built on nothings. And although I may not want anything  to do with the person Parts ofContinue reading “I don’t do intimacy with strangers “

Between Nothing

This title carries so many uncertainties I no longer want to keep Distributing my loneliness in every man I seek It’s hard for me to admit to myself And it’s not because I thought he was the one I just chose him over many ones And I assumed he’d do the same I’m very certainContinue reading “Between Nothing”

A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes

you’re not a bad person for the way you kill your sadness… Each pill dissolving on your tongue, the way you wished your pain would. But pain is not like people, you can’t just talk it away, And people aren’t simple, you cannot force them to stay. 99 pills at once, Like problems shoved down yourContinue reading “A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes”

That “Girl, Go Get Your Life” Quote

“He may still love you. He probably does. He probably doesn’t know what he wants. He probably still thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters. What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t doContinue reading “That “Girl, Go Get Your Life” Quote”

For Sale

I consciously placed a sale tag on a non-discountable good. The one timeless peice, People would merely walk in and admire, Was on sale. Aware, But based on pure frustration,  I wanted it to go. Those who walked in To purely admire it, Were in disbelief Those who had never seen it before, knew itContinue reading “For Sale”

Dear Destroyer

You took a huge part of me & ran away, When were you planning on telling me? In your head, I was just a phase. You should have fucking told me.   The only reason I don’t let people in, Is because I hate how they always up and leave. No goodbyes, Just up andContinue reading “Dear Destroyer”

Stranger

I don’t know why I’m writing this, But it kinda feels good… I know you’re somewhere out there  Probably reading this… I’m assuming you’re a Stranger  Who probably knows nothing about me Because for long, those closest to me didnt even know I write poetry.  So any judgments you make of me Will be basedContinue reading “Stranger”

Sober

Soon as the liquor dissolves on my tongue, I am unable to control myself. I only want you. Like you are the only thing buried at the bottom of a bottle. I’m too far from sober to want you in any other way. In the sea of alcohol, It is only you that I remember clearly.Continue reading “Sober”

Skin

He’s a real awful person For bringing her to tears, For how her skin wraps around her soul. She tells me how she thanked you, For never being there. Your absence forced her to find her own way. It’s amazing how unstoppable a woman becomes, After she is comfortable in her own skin.

Pain demands to be felt…

There is nothing worse than being surrounded by people and still feeling extremely lonely. Because nobody hears your demons when they slowly plow at your soul. Everyone is caught up in their own lives, feeding the monster that have engulfed their soul. I’ve been lingering around the city with unmet emotions for the longest time.Continue reading “Pain demands to be felt…”

Forever 21

I recently asked if I was somewhat weird or awkward for being 21 and still ( forever single), and I got the most surprising response which actually warmed my heart. I’d like to share it: ” Nothing wrong with you.  If anything you are being more careful than most who would rush into a relationship. Continue reading “Forever 21”

“I have grown to understand that I’m difficult to love, not because I’m broken, but  because I’m whole. I don’t give guys the luxury of loving me in parts. I love all of me whole heartedly, so it becomes difficult for a guy to squeeze through my insecurities to fill a void he might thinkContinue reading

Mrs Blue Black Purple

She looks at me through blue, black and purple.  Heavy rings around her eyes. No ring on her finger. Mentally enslaved. Temporary bruises beneath her clothing. Permanent scaring underneath her skin.  The colours of her pain have substituted her friends. He left her to choke. She can no longer see his face. She seems toContinue reading “Mrs Blue Black Purple”

Crutch

I loved you, when you were most broken. Prayed every night, that you would be healed as sunrise awakens, But every day, you would awaken, With more and more breathes taken. I see how pain radiates through your smile. Knowing that your feet won’t walk a mile, without a crutch. Eyes oblivious, to what wasContinue reading “Crutch”

Is This Really The End? (part 6)

Originally posted on LaurakinsTrain:
You beg and plead. I even have you on your knees But that won’t change my mind. She needs to know EVERYTHING!! You get angry. A volcano of emotions explode all over your body. Trying to scare me with your Hulk like anger. Baby you wouldn’t even harm a fly. What…

No Good Comes From Loving A Person Who Doesn’t Love You Back…

He has a constellation of freckles on his face and you’re busying trying to figure out how your name comes into it. The words he utters puts you out of place, yet you still try to fit yourself in all the spaces he has created. In the mist of everything. You try teach him howContinue reading “No Good Comes From Loving A Person Who Doesn’t Love You Back…”

When I Became A Man – Caleb Jones

When I became a manI put away childish things But before I became a man I didn’t always fit the shoes of a KingI was a child trying to find his way The toys I played with kept my eyes occupied And left my eyes in a lustful boyish frenzyMy playmates had long legs, shortContinue reading “When I Became A Man – Caleb Jones”

Over the years

For me, it doesn’t make sense to still entertain the same bullshit from boys, I once did, when my chest was freshly stung by bees. I have learned that, the holding of a hand means nothing but two different fingerprints in really close proximity.  I no longer fall for boys who selectively listen to the words that escape my mouthContinue reading “Over the years”

Naked

I need you to Strip Me completely naked. I’m not talking about baring particles of my skin for your arousal. I mean opening my soul, So that you can roam in it for hours, Instead of the boys who feel they’re entitled to my body after knowing my favourite colour. See.. If you’re lucky, You’llContinue reading “Naked”
