The Life You Leave Behind If you haven’t read the previous post you may want to start here to read about what happened. If you’re caught up, please continue… Grieving has been a game of cat and mouse. Last month I broke down when it was quiet, usually late at night. It wouldn’t last long. Too much… Read More That Didn’t Happen, This Did: Part II
I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge new followers and all the troopers who are still with me. As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, 2014 has been somewhat of a whirlwind.

I must have known something was coming. Good thing I wrote most of this post before my birthday. Maybe I should have posted it then as well? Lately I’ve been on a certain vibe. My physical hasn’t changed much but my insides are going through a major renovation. When I turned 30, I lost my job… Read More I’m Gonna Need This Party To Last A Little Longer

Love Is Calling Love is calling. I’m daydreaming Of your kisses and whispers In my ear telling me Stay inside. When the rain makes it so. We’ll play. Love is calling. No matter the desire to fight. I’m falling into your eyes. Floating in your arms, Overwhelmed by your love. Heaven is your smile. You,… Read More Not A Random Call
This time last year Filled with devotion and folly. Knowing possibility Trembled on borrowed time. I jumped anyway. Heart first. No room for safety. Hoping not to crash. Knowing it was inevitable. Wanting blood from a rock. I got scars holding you. An earful of promise. A heap of I’ll do better Melted in the salt… Read More Love Needs Warning Labels
The most beautiful thing that could happen to me? I never see you again. Because to see you Is to want you. Wanting you makes me want to die. And dying would be better Than watching you not see me everyday. And next when our eyes don’t meet I’ll try to turn my heart off… Read More If I Never
March has been a hell of a month. And I knew I would drag on this post. Not because it seems my M.O. for the challenges. It’s the subject: PEACE The last four months have been a world wind of thoughts, emotions, dreams, situations, and realizations. People came into my life and left quicker than… Read More When It Comes To Time

This is a first of hopefully a mélange of offerings in the spirit of [pause, then sigh] Valentine’s Day. Being perpetually single, this is not a thrilling time of year for me. However, I decided to not let it cast the shadow over my life that I have previously allowed. So… Wayne over at The Bottom of A… Read More Bring On The Love!
As I already mentioned to Kozo, I’m slow to this peaceful movement. I wrote this poem many years ago. Depending on your perspective, you may understand why it brings me peace. I’m not sneaking in. I know I missed the January post deadline. My intention was more about posting when the right moment presented itself.… Read More A Peaceful Goodbye
Before we begin, let the record state that I didn’t authorize a funeral. But my loved ones are oft absent-minded and stubborn. Since they have flummoxed my plans—my ashes should be scattered in Manhattan, London, Egypt, and Paris—I hope my words make it to you intact. Although knowing some people, they will change this as well. Here goes…… Read More In My Mind, It’s Still You And Me
Stupid idealist, phantom pleasure, you’re of no use to me. Picturing a lover’s eyes makes my head spin, not in a lovesick way, but in a ‘fool why are you still driving yourself mad with delusions of grandeur?’ sort of way. My window of opportunity…was never open very wide or for too long. Painfully I… Read More Goodnight Visionaire
waking up to your arms wrapped around me the softness of your lips the strength of your body the way you love me loving you your laughter how you disarm me with that smile when you take control when I lead and you follow the idea of you, because right now all you are is… Read More I Love
We take turns. Don’t acknowledge truths. Silence burns. Moving through our lives As two fixed points. Love only in private orbits. A never-ending tale. This Last Every time, Is now. Faces change. Heart remains. Take what you need. Binding soul in chains To this place called longing. Always in the shadows of the other. The unattainable perfect… Read More (What’s So) Merry (About This) Go Round?
It’s that season folks. You didn’t need me telling you this, did you? You were hit with it before Halloween booed, tricked, or treated. The tryptophan barely knocked some of you out before you were out the door for Black Friday. Others were probably eating pie while researching Cyber Monday Deals. Let’s not forget the planning for… Read More Where’s You’re Presence?: A Guide To The Gifts We Forget
Lianne La Havas Lianne La Havas I love saying her name. It just does something to me. Sounds even better when she says it though. Perhaps it’s that London vibe. Is Your Love Big Enough? Her song asks. Hell yes it is! Her music, oh man. Her music snatches me by my locs and sings… Read More Is Your Love Big Enough? Mine Is!
