I wonder

I wonder if we’d build each other up If we weren’t so prone to violence You see Experts say the cycle of abuse is something you’re taught but in a world where it is often overlooked Not because we don’t know better but because we don’t want to burden our minds with those thoughts or maybe…

Second Death

Poetic Prison

I have a dream I’m on stage; a famous poet reading out loud & everyone loves me. Yet, I always wake too scared to pursue my heart’s wishes knowing Damn well what my niche is but lying to myself while crying “no one cares to listen…”

Ptsd in Matrimony

I love you so much I’d be willing to die For one more night to hold you tight & show you love You see, I still believe in your magic For You gave me faith In my own Taught me To know my strengths As well as weaknesses & to hold myself accountable You are…

Feminist “Thot”

This one’s for the girls On 22 hour lockdown In a 6×8 room We talk & console One another with Tough love & jokes Find family in strangers & homes within our cells So my dear lost children My heart Pours Out Some say… they treat us like animals Yet you wouldn’t allow A dog…

Forget Me Not

Life made me forget what was special about our love Yet forced me to examine what I want & I found myself more in love  Than when I thought  You were perfect  For the man I love is real  and full of flaws Not some wind up doll he is my Other half and he taught me…
