words deployed during the hardest of times, when butterflies and tongue ties wouldn’t allow me to let you know how I feel… they don’t even bother to last long enough to form a sentence.
How do you boldly confess that you’ll give me some thing like love, when all that I asked for was love. How do you not see that you’re falling short? I effortlessly give you all of me, my stars & moons, only to get empty spaces in return.
Unable to phathom the debt I paid for love,
because no one is able to hold me once you’re gone.
Not only am I swimming in your sweat,
I’m drowning in thoughts of you,
Unable to utter another man’s name….
Waking up next to you, with the smell of coffee brewing parallel to morning dust.
Coffee synonymous to lust
Today I had no desire to see the sun rise or set, Oxygen was nothing short of an enemy.
I love myself enough for it to over shadow the love I initially thought I needed from others. K.M
I’ve grown found of affection, Something which has always been foreign to me. There’s something that feelings so homely about a pillow with a beating heart…. Blanket that resignates with body heat… And calm breaths that scream “HOME” This moment is so precious to me. Conscious of the energy we feeding the moment Too tired toContinue reading “Vulnerability”
Stop using me as a gateway of passing time Idled between ruined fantasies and happily ever afters. -The Other Woman
A passionate history of empty promises. In the chamber of moments never written. I was waiting for you. Your presence is perfume poured out- No wonder I adored you so much. I just wanted you to look at me like love. And like a break from war, I accept you with open arms Just gladContinue reading “I wanted coffee…”
I don’t want to be addicted to love. I don’t want to be so exposed, That I no longer know how it feels to live without it. I don’t want to feel the aftermath of a dying love.
“I fucken want you and I want to be about you.” Shouted out to the man of my dreams. The man created by me in my head. He lives. He’s real. He owns his body, But the rest of him was created by me. And I want him! Dammit, I want him SO bad… IContinue reading “I want you…”
It’s important to do things that allow you to fall deeper and deeper in love with yourself.
Waiting on the sun to sleep I allow my clothes to grace my ankles. I turn on the shower – Grab a wine glass and make it less hollow. Slip into the shower with the the sole purpose of scrubbing my soul clean from anything a that is not me. In pursuit of nothingContinue reading “09/04/2016”
I came across this piece just now and I was completely unaware that I wrote it, until I was half way through. In those seconds, it dawned on me how unbelievablely easy it was for me to write about topics I had absolutely no idea of. Now, that I’m learning to be aware ofContinue reading “Throwback “
You poured your heart out to me on a pillow and then we started fucking, I swiftly slid it under me, Because I’d rather have it draped in bodily fluids than the smell of your broken heart.
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 “
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”
…because I’d rather be draped I my own ungodliness than somebody else’s.
Just based off meeting a guy for the first time, there is a physical attraction that is sparked. That happens way before you know his name, find out his age, and get a sneak peek of his personality. Your eyes focus on what you see in this man: the tattoos drawn on his arms, theContinue reading “Do you put a time limit on sex?”
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”
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”
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”
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
Sometimes I draw so far from God, it is hard to believe that He will welcome me back with open arms, but that’s where Grace comes in. -Kamogelo Mopai.
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”

Eventually you’ll get tired of spilling your love all over the place. Be smart about who and what you are pouring into. Alexandra Elle ♥ Kamiz
