I Dare You…

This brown eyed, golden skinned beauty sits on a train
Watching the world fly by through her window seat
A knowing smirk appears on her face as if to say she knows the world’s secret
A man sits on the train wanting and waiting for something, anything to happen
Watching the people the train passes by and smiles slightly at the rushing and pushing to go where they need to go
The man turns his head slowly; he sees her sitting there in all her glory new and shiny
She feels someone is watching her as she is watching the world
She turns
He watches
She meets his eyes
Contact has been made
He looks away quickly
She continues meet his gaze
He sneaks a look, still looking
And then she smiles full and wide as if to say “gotcha”
But she continues to look thinking what the hell he is kind of cute
He has built his courage and begins to meet her gaze again
They looked in a stare the train and people the world passing them by
She stares, one eyebrow arched and forming a smirk once again
She stares saying “Challenge”, “I dare you”
I dare you to look at me
See inside to my soul
I dare you to see me for what I am
Tell me what I need
Show me what I want
I dare you to make me smile
Wide, then wider
I dare you to hold me till I cry and then no more
I dare you to want me
Need me
I dare you
I dare you to love me
I dare you
And with one look he says “I dare you to let me”

I AM A TREASURE…

MY THIGHS ARE THE STRENGTH OF MAN
MY HIPS ARE WHERE MAN FINDS HIS CENTER

THESE ARMS ARE MAN’S ANCHOR
THESE HANDS ARE MAN’S LITTLE HELPERS

THIS WAIST HAS BEEN KNOWN MAKE MEN TREMBLE
THIS MOUTH HAS DONE MUCH OF THE SAME

MY BREASTS ARE MAN’S RESTING PLACE
MY EYES MAKE MAN PEACEFUL AND SAFE

BETWEEN MY THIGHS IS MAN’S BIRTH PLACE
BETWEEN UP AND ALL ROUND MY CURVES IS WHERE MAN MAY EXPLORE HIS FAITH

MY SKIN IS TO GIVE HIM WARMTH FROM THE COLD
MY HEART IS TO LOVE HIM

I AM WHAT I WAS MEANT TO BE MAN’S MOST PRECIOUS THING
NO NOT SILVER OR GOLD
NO NOT DIAMONDS EVEN THOUGH TO SOME A MAY RESEMIBLE VERY THAT VERY STONE
BUT A DIAMOND IS JUST A DIAMOND THAT IS A SHINY PIECE
I AM SO MUCH MORE
WARS HAVE BEEN WAGED OVER ME
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SET FREE FOR ME

I HAVE BEEN READ AND WRITTEN ABOUT
I AM A COMMODITY
SOME MAKE MONEY OFF ME
AND YET I HAVE BUT ONE PURPOSE
TO BE HIS QUEEN

I AM A TREASURE
UNTAPED
UNREFINED
THIS IS HOW I WAS DESIGNED

I AM A TREASURE

A conversation with love

There is a secret I must tell and hopefully you’ll not come
away from my little truth with fear

For as long as I could remember I have wanted you
I’d see you in the park, outside my car window as I ride by
wishing it were me with you.

I heard stories of you and your adventures the romance you bring
with you. Flowers, kiss expression crossing the lips

whispers of your exploits dance fancifully in my head thinking I wish
it was me.

also did I hear the terror you can bring the pain the heart break.

but for one taste of you I would take all I could take

Then one day you walk into my life like the wind breezing through an open window
I did not know you by your face but I felt you just the same

like a tap on the shoulder from a long lost friend
like the sun slowly rising over the mountains as if not to startle anyone
like the moon brightening the night sky

you were these things to me
in my mind the words, “can I worship you”, played over and over again
my body said make me yours

and I also remember the hurt because “I cried yesterday” when you left
the pain and heartbreak Id heard about was very present
and as heavy as stone tied to ones neck in a lake of water
sinking fast I thought what we had would last

But no we did do something more we came to an understanding that you would always be you that you will never change but for me things never stay the same

We agreed to part ways separating our things walked away with smiles on our mouths and tears our eyes

we said we’d remain friends but we lost contact in the end

Until one day I saw you with her and remember wishing it was me and thinking what happen to the “we” we used to be

that day you saw me too
so now we have this affair that no on knows about
it so wonderful now that instead of telling everyone or getting found out
we go this route

Me sitting here telling how I feel telling you have nothing to fear
when I’m the one who is really scared
like the first day I met you the first time I heard your name
the first time you danced with me in the rain

now that I have said all have it only now that I feel worthy to speak your name

“love”

Heavy Feet and all

You touched me and it was lightening lit both our hearts. Setting fire to our souls this is supposed to be but the passion was ever so strong.

We know it is wrong but what could we do. Stop dead in our tracks, turn run in the opposite direction. How could we when it was not our heads but our hearts and bodies that made the decision.

It was when we became one did I really understand that I should not fight I should go with the flow, ride it out so to speak.

And do believe I tried to prevent it in the beginning, because I knew it would be sinning. But he made me weak
So weak I could not have turned and run if I could my feet being heavy and all

I wonder what mama would say
I also wonder will he want to touch me today

So that can feel that weakness that brings me joy ever so sweet heavy feet and all

So tell me how this could be wrong
I know soon he’ll be gone
He is not mine for asking or the taking
But for he is offering

That I allow the lightening and thunder the weak spell just for a time
Because even if I have a soft heart I believe he is the same trouble in question
You know the heavy feet and all

i breathe you

i breathe you
i see you when close my eyes
as if your picture were taped to the back of lids

i feel your caress in my sleep

i guess that mean i dream of you
ive dreamed of you since day one
no my bad i must confess
it was 9 months from day one

i taste you everytime i am near watermelon
i love you everytime taste your sweetness
like strawberries like kiwi a bannana maybe
no nothing compares to the essence of you

i cry tears for you
come back
stay
let me love you
hold you
breath you
