Outside Thoughts from Inside Prison
Over the years
I'm turning into something I don't like.
Like I'm something to fear.
I try the straight road and right track,
By reading books, college ruled paper, highlighters,
Cold, cold, get the chills when they manifest around me
Used to get scared,
but I no longer hold to these kind of sentiments when they are
around me, Still get the chills tho, every time.
Whispers are their mode of communication.
Every time they are around...
I hold within a heart very close to zero pulses
The valves remain frozen while I’m locked in self-focus
It’s best to hold affection, face, rejection if projected
Do I not contain a soul or is it to keep myself protected
My statements come bare, so bare, it’s hard...
"You Need Better"
Just tell me what you want to do
because you're still with him and I'm oh so blue...
Tell me the truth, Tell me if I'm wrong
And if I really am then I'll just move along.
You're in a situation where you just feel stuck
But I can get you out...
I read right through you, that’s why your words excite me. Your body is perfect, it’s all that ignites me. I was scared of your beginning, but I fell in love with your end. I wonder, what kind of relationship does the paper have with the pen? Words written all over you, so I had to take a look....
A seed that must be planted as the seat of the soul
Watered with self-reflection and nurtured with patience
The stem though thorny in places
Withstands the weeds of temptation
Beaming bud of hope filled with potential never known
Blossom selfish rose of...
O beautiful woman, may God fragrance your life with knowledge and faith, your time with obedience and awareness of him, and may He beautify your body with a covering of modesty and dignity, may he plant the seeds of righteousness in your life, green and fruitful, for you to sow and reap. As well...
Darkness attempts to blanket my being.
Yet optimism sheds a radiance quite freeing.
Finding beauty and worth in the chains of ill fate.
Struggle bleeds strength so I float in a smooth state.
Purpose tugging on me requesting that I show.
Trying to do the math but...
Covid came for us.
Hidden in the exhalations of the Trojan Horse who worked the eight,
Once released upon us she moved like a wraith.
Invisible to the senses we didn’t know she was hunting,
Until the dead started to walk,...
I feel like I see the world as an outsider
All the time I have to watch from other’s eyes
Is it outside looking in, hoping to see
To be included
I feel so alone
Like no one wants me
I can’t go out without feeling sad
Do you see the pain in my eyes,
The sadness in my soul?
I want to share it,
But I don’t know how.
How can I say these words,
They are on the tip of my tongue.
I say it over and over in my head
But I can’t make my mouth speak them.
Echoes from within
Unravels distant memories
Shrouded in a mystery
A light comes alive
With a gentle silhouette coming forth
The briefest heartbeat it disappears
Leaving loneliness kiss
The ghost of the past whispers
The name of a...
Black Like Me
If you lived in my city
And was raised on my block,
Would you just get arrested
Or shot down by the cops?
If you were starving to death
And your body was weak,
Would you wait on a blessing
Or steal you something to eat...
Hello, I’m Corona, they call me “Covid-19.”
I’m here to take over and I’m not easily seen
I’m so easily spread from a cough to a sneeze
I travel over nations; both here and overseas
I take the lives of both old and new,
and I’m looking to get a shot at you...
Song – Only
Artist – NF.
Here I sit an innocent man,
Burned by a woman’s scorn,
My heart and soul torn.
All I ever wanted for in life,
Is a child and that of a wife,
Now as I fight to prove my innocence,
My son is left with...
Do I give up or try another attempt?
Is it my countenance or past that earns that look of contempt?
If it’s the latter, then it’s truly deserved
Yet I radiate a strength more fittingly reserved
For a champion, does that depict an aura of arrogance
Like works of exquisite art,
Many beautiful colors
I love them
Big and bold
I'm dying to hold
Handle with the very best care
Loved, honored, cherished, respected
Most of all protected
Free of the Darkness
By: The Heartfelt Poet
I've been trapped in this darkness for so long that my eyes cannot focus. For I do not know the time of day, it could be dark or light. The only sounds I hear are the clanging of bars. It seems that my only guest has been for light even...
As I saw a teardrop start to well
In the corner of your eye,
It stirred in me a passion.
And made me start to wonder why.
In a world of contradictions
It would seem so out of place,
That such a fine and lovely creature
Could have a teardrop...
I’m sending out this message, in a battle, as if I’m on an island,
in hopes that it will find a caring person on dry land,
because I’ve been searching high and low, and it’s now that I confess
that the thing that I’ve been searching for is called “Happiness!”
From the tip of her brown nose to the tips of her brown toes, as long as she is receptive, that is where my love will flow.
I’ve dreamed of her a thousand nights…perhaps even more…and though I have yet to meet her, I desire her to my core.
She is central to all my fantasies…my...
Softly telling lies, lulling me to ecstasy
Thirsty for your love, insatiable appetite for your body
Humming In sync to the rapid rhythm of my heart
Conducting electricity, rolling with the currents
hypnotize by the friction of our flesh...
It is said that forgiveness is a sense of mercy based on the emotional concept which is given from one heart to another. Forgiveness is asked for, due to the unexpected, or untimely error, regret, or feelings which shouldn’t be harbored any further, to a measurable theory it is thought or said...
The letter I got felt so good, oh how it smells so sweet.
I read, re-read, and read once more every word you send to me.
My hear swells at the thought of your love.
Your words enticing me
Gentle kisses along my cheeks you took out time for me.
Many colors and their oh so many different meaning. The color of love, what is it, have you seen it? One conversation with thought on a calm friendly night. Who knows what it truly is. Word from the Great Book said it’s pure...
Imagine if you will, being made to stay in a place where your surroundings are unfamiliar, and so is every face. Imagine being ordered around by people you don’t even know, where people tell you when to eat, where you can and cannot go. Imagine hundreds of people around, and still feeling all...
How I am, is how I feel, but how I feel is not who I am,
The conclusion that exists from this reality is also a part of me.
The condition of the heart also tends to cause a fluctuation of the mind,
The lack of stability there, is too, how I am.
To be me...
My childhood might seem lacking
Because I’m Blacking
And you consider
Meadowbrook and queensbridge
A place where
Are you capable of seeing past these prison bars, or willing to help heal these emotional scars?
Will we be able to become the best of friends even though I'm not rich and can't buy you a Mercedes-Benz?
Can I write you just to free my mind or call you just to laugh and pass...
Born with wings, but never flew.
Born to sing, but never crooned.
Lofty heights, I’ve never known.
Awesome skills though never honed.
Much potential, never seen,
Not quite realized, but often dreamed.
Life’s sweet victory, I’...
