Break Up

I surrender
To a misguided dream
You I can't have
Fully on my team
Spoiled teardrops in milk
Rain floods the soul windows
I know for sure
No love surprise
Knees clap
An old tree back
The corner moves three squares
Check, I don't play chess
I can't dress chairs
Channel 304 says
Live the best me
My heart climbs
Into the sea
Of Cheerios, soy spilling off the rim
Killing mom's fancy cloth
I shudder, a click
Hello, still there

Mango Eyes

Along a stretch of road
I spot a huge tree
My belly begins to churn
I want what's dangling before me
I press against the country fence
I stare high at the green turning yellow
A voice like wind startles, 'ello
Why watch so far up
You don’ 'ave mango eyes, she said
Look dat one right dere, big an' red
Look see on dis limb too, 'ere's anoda
You wan' tas’e
Gimme a dolla
Come, come visitor
Come inside Mary ya'd
Don’ min' dem strays
Dey bark but not bad
How much you wan'
Eat now o take 'way
Dey full an' juicy
Goin' make you stay
First when you break da skin
Meh fruit does delight
‘Cause I does feed it love
Day an' night
Come, come
Pick wha' you see
Jus' remember
It's meh only tree
Meh fruit
Meh life
An’ it takes care ah me

HEALING by Miss Visions (Guest Blogger)

I learned how to love & for that I'm grateful
I learned how to be loved though you were unfaithful
I learned how to forgive & not let myself die
I made mistakes too, it's not all on you
Holding myself accountable and taking my life back
Through the hurt and pain
I learned valuable lessons
Things I'd never change because they've been a blessing
Fortified my strength & revealed my weaknesses
I didn't believe my strength nor recognize my value
An emotional prisoner but now I'm paroled
Had to be broken to be made whole

Nothing

Nothing comes
Nothing may
Today no words
I can't play

I squeeze my head
Forcing sounds
Trying to rhyme
But no nouns

Nothing, nothing
Almost noon
Not a note
Not a tune

Okay don't fret
Another day
Maybe tomorrow
Something to say
