Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Make it known to society that poetry is the conjugation of hope
We gotta go there to spark your interest
And your parents will wonder where it came from
Did it start from infancy?
Why are you drawn to words like crack?
Your trails of verses make them nervous
They truly believe it will ruin their reputation
And their friends’ reputation
This is our healing process
We lay dreams on sheets of paper to heal the heart
Inch by inch
We go back to collect empty shells of memories
To promote
Make it known
Unapologetically who we are
Make it known we battle emotions
for a reason
Make it known
We are poets
For life

It was a slow week for me, the weekend is dragging with a warm 70 degrees sun so i'm grateful...what i'm truly enjoying today is watching the Food Network and writing poetry, what more can I ask for?

Hello Blogworld

A lot has happened since my last post, been in and out of the hospital, writing poetry, painting and drawing. Also got myself a new laptop which is great, it's much faster and now i'll be posting more pics and more poems. Thanks to all of you, prayers were heard and I feel so blessed. More poetry and short stories will be coming your way...

You want romance with sweetest taboo
I can’t provide such episode with your eyes alone
Or with lyrics and beats
We can only crawl together towards reality
Create messages with words
Words bring out the sunlight and heartache
Give me your heart
I will give you a future
A future with heartache attached on a string


Friends warn me about men like you
They say don’t daydream of your poetic words
I pull out the tiara off my short fuzzy hair to wake up to reality
I’m too hopeless
I am a dreamer of chocolate roses
tulips and butterflies
Your smile spreads smoothly on my sheets
You don’t touch yet still I can feel you admiring me
I am your goddess


Here comes your moon again glowing my way
I ignore the signs
Cross the streets and avenues in my white dress
Pretend I was your meal last night
The one you digested with such ease
Then you had that last glass of Merlot
Sang loud enough for your neighbors to hear
Last night I claimed your heart as if you won me
You own me
But I don’t belong to you
I never agreed to share your table
Never agreed to give you my heart
To give you my love
I left you drunk with tears
“My goodness, how dare you?” you screamed
I walk away cause’ it’s easier not to show I care
Easier not to love
Easier to tap dance with romance with notes
