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”

Emotion is not meant to feel like war

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.

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”

Vulnerability

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”

I wanted coffee…

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…”

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”

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.

“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

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…”

Cock Tease

I sit here and wonder why I am still single I mean, I’m a hopeless romantic, With a slightly dirty mind, Reasonably high standards, Yet… I’m still single. Okay so, I recently went on a date, And between the Mixed Berry Mojito and Nachos My date managed to slip in a “Non-Offensive” comment which I almost chocked onContinue reading “Cock Tease”

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”

Daddy Issues

Why do you teach these boys to impregnate us and leave, and Bow down on their knees to pale white feet, like they can’t even stand us? If you’re lucky enough to have one be a part of your life. You get handed a undeserved proclaimed title of “Crazy Baby Momma”. They place their chocolateContinue reading “Daddy Issues”

This Is Just a List

I) The amount of words it took for me to fall in love. II) These are the times I gave you my heart as a second chance to make sure you break it right. III) Three words I grew so fond of, being that I had never heard them before. IV) This is what yourContinue reading “This Is Just a List”
