Again and Again

The emptiness creeps up on me

dark or light  means nothing

I try to hide inside my soul

to bring me back and make me whole

Again and Again

I am covered

This  blue blood rushes

THrough my vein

My heart  is my undoing

racing against the content of mind

the images lost and stolen time

hugs tightly to my lens

Again and Again

Stale Air fills my lungs

the stench of destruction diffuses

tension bounds my leg

the beast stands firm ahead

Again and Again

Shadow moving into me

cold hands on my spine

calming words in my ear

Sighs linger on my lips

Again and Again.







Day by Day
I drift into the realm
Of nothingness
Unseen Being
No more struggle
to merge
No more begging
to be heard
I go into the blackness
Thickened silence
Welcomes me
I am accepted
I am free


It runs through my veins

It takes over my brain

Frame by Frame

I am collected

Taken back by  my reflection

I stand their enthralled

watching color seeping

into my skin




history hidden within me




I move arms open

to embrace the race  within

sunlight glistening


on my melanated skin





Self Worth

You call me miser
cause I budget at my will?
You call me fool
When I am simply too cool
You call me a procrastinator
Only I know I am a perfectionist
You call me cocky
When I hold my head
too high
You call me damaged
When I simply share my past
You say too much drama
When I found my voice at last
You say I have attitude
When I am courageous and stern
You say I complain
When I share the truth you want to learn

You call me names

I give myself titles

freeing myself from that which stifles

giving me the power to forgive

and move foward and once again live
