if all my lovers were one

If all my lovers were one
we would be magic
spaceship riding shot gun
free of bad habits
I wonder about you
what are you willing to lose?
If its between me and her
It’s me, you would always choose
better days ricochet
off our vibrations
you bring me
peace
love
joy
happiness
and then some,
If only all of my lovers could be found in just one
I would be lifted
So high
Like john legend
No smoke, cause we know better
But it would be breezy
Damn, how hard it always is for you to leave me
Magnetic forces intertwine our inner beings
And even our outerbeings gravitate
So effortlessly
it’s hard not to see us
Baby, you would really be my baby
If all my lovers were one
We would never throw in the towel
We would never be “done”
We would love hard
never love alone
You would always be my only one
You’d be more than enough
If only all my lovers were one
We’d write poetry and sing our hearts out
We’d play fifa and really ball out
We’d stay up late watching movies
We’d trade books
We’d color within the lines
And watch anime until we cried
Oh how we would share fufu
How we would really get fly
We’d definitely go hiking
For you I would always write haikus
And how we’d dance all night
We’d play guitar to the rhythm of our heart beats til there was no doubt
No doubt about us
We won’t live without this
Cause now we know love
Real love
This is righteous
It lives in our eyes and soars through our kiss
If all my lovers were one
We would never miss
We would never hurt eachother with harsh words
We would never drift
No time would ever exist
It’d be pure bliss
If all of my lovers were one you would be
the one
my one
If all of my lovers could be found in just one
Love would conquer all
We would finally feel home

A Midnight Rose

We’re like the rose
Elegant with beautiful imperfections
Though highly respected
sometimes are neglected
When those petals shrivel into a dark crisp
And it’s life has seemingly been ended
But you see the rose and how it grows
Only lord knows how long it will have it’s life
It buds as a small flower and blooms into a majestic work of art
Praised and worshipped by men
Used to sweep them off their feet and woo women
but when they dry and shrivel up are trashed into a bin
What if we cherished a dark midnight rose
With dark stiff petals that are perceived to be dead?
What if we accepted that a rose is still a rose and a beautiful symbol for how we in our own lives too will grow?
Stunning and bold, full of color and life but one day our ripest of petals will soon fall off.
The rose is but a symbol of our hearts.
Not a measure of how we live and die in this life.
We are the roses.
For surely it is roses that grow from the depths of our hearts and reflect the love from which our souls shine.
And when those roses are in their prime be sure to share them and spread them all over.
There’s a flicker of light in the eyes of the reciever. They will be delighted and smitten by this grand gesture. A rose can make them a believer.
Be the roses.
Be that symbol of love and appreciation that you hope to fill the hearts of others.
Be the roses.
And one day you too shall recieve your own.
Be the roses.

Cause roses don’t die.

Three on the Third

There were three of us
Same dirt road
We walked for miles
Spent miles thinking of rest
Wondering if we could hide under the moon
Dreading the suns return
The night was jet black
There were no stars
We had no car
And we avoided any eye contact
That might give away how close we are
To breaking
Breaking down
Breaking hard
This parallel to life had gone too far
Never again would this mind be the same
Didn’t even notice it was the trigger
That gave way
Gave way to the vulnerabilities
The ones that never existed before
But now stay
How did I get this way?
Nothing about my life had changed until that jet-black night with no stars
Walking along a dirt path with no car
My mental is forever shifted
There’s an imbalance they say
But what a life I live to witness
A resilience unfazed
by every symbol
The wind blew her way
That said “you are not enough”
Too many times she fell but every time she’d rise
Because of what happened that jet-black night with no stars walking on a dirt path with no car was that she found her heart still danced to its own rhythm and through each sacrifice there was a light being lit at the vigil of her failures.
Everything happens for a reason
But that don’t ever mean it’s all easy.
Accept the good, the bad and all its seasons

It was written, the reason we’re still breathing 

The Best Years

4F9E4E70-DC69-4B74-BB7E-9C005AD8971B

We go weeks and months in between
We can’t, but want to be there
Sharing coffee, spilling tea, remembering
The bond we’ve nurtured over these years
You see, I watched your kids grow up
They grew up right in front of me
And I remember when you jumped the broom
How we danced that night, I remember
Yes I remember
That one birthday, we got so lit
It was all a blur but the memory remains
Just like I remember that year you graduated
And how we celebrated
We laughed
We sang
We danced
These are the times
The times I will always remember
I remember waiting outside the club
Freezing in heels
Waiting to get to our table
I remember that time we got so high
I thought the car was a spaceship
I got seasick and my insides met your floor
I remember
I remember you making music working on beats
And us sleeping on that hard floor of that studio
Yes I remember
How could I not remember
How time has escaped me
Where did the minutes go
The hours we used to spend talking on the phone
Take me back to the soccer games we played
The young love I used to date
Time is precious
And as my clock ticks down
I learn to cherish
Because these days will swiftly pass by
And today will become yesterday
Within a blink of an eye
Black hair turns gray
And suddenly we can’t remember certain things
We lived in so many moments
But we will never get them back
The memories will never let go
And it’s getting harder to stay in touch
But wherever you go
However you grow
Please, just remember
Remember how things were before
Before we had jobs
Before we had nice clothes
Before the car payments
Before we knew what we now know
Our time is ever fleeting
And these years will keep going faster
Seeming shorter
So be in the moment
When it comes to memories I’m a hoarder
And I will hold on to as many details as I can remember
Because to remember
Can feel like to relive 

And to relive is to experience love once again

Fork in the Road

Things will be as they will be.
Divine intervention saved us one, two, three many times
and this time I’ll be the one to walk away
I won’t make you go but i cant keep you Don’t ask me to stay
it’s time to move on toward the rest of your life. Without me.
It’ll be beautiful
The love we commit to one another had to be equal
But we kept missing eachother
Skipping eachother
You looked in my eyes and saw me playing tug of war
with what I was feeling and what you were seeing
We were not aligned
The stars turned to dust
And now the memories will forever remember us
As the two who could never be
Who keep finding eachother
But fail to believe
We remain in limbo
And we never grow
Throw in the towel
Things must go on from here
There’s potential in the atmosphere
For us to lead happy lives
Without eachother
Though we’ll never find no others
Like us
Sometimes life ends up like this
I’ll go left and you’ll go right just
Pray we don’t loop around and
Take this same walk again
The merry go round must end

Love in the Light

Glistening over the dark ripples
of my waves
These tides have soared high and still
that white light, the way it shines so
Bright
So
Clear and true
I know the source could be from none other than you
You and all of your glory
For centuries people have heard of your stories
Wandering about, searching for confirmation
Yearning for proof of thisYour imprint traces the outline of my heart
and it keeps beating for you
Every day, and with every start
You breathe into me
Yes, you breathe into me
And by the end of the day its your caress
that is needed to fill this void in my chest
Love, when will you show your face
When will you intertwine with my spine
and walk with me until there is no time
How long have we waited?
Just to be in the same spaces
The demands of our lives tugging and ripping us further away
But I know Love,
Real love always stays
And while we are still protected by how hard our grandmothers prayed
We are still learning to love Love, day by day
Things grow lighter when we finally let go
And feel what it feels like to love in the light.

The Vibes

I will give you that feeling you get when you connect silently, yet publicly, through curious eye contact with a stranger.

You feel like you know them, or at least you want to…know them.

But then they get up. They leave.

And though your eyes wander about, you realize that they’re not coming back.

Gone, forever.

But that feeling, you’ll surely remember.
