"Black and Blued "

Poem derived from my first completed journal, Black and Blue (2018-2019). Written May 13th 2018.


Write me a song that only my ears

will be graced to hear:

A harmonic love letter

engulfed with intricately mimicable melodies

to me my heart feel like

it involuntarily beats for a purpose.

Paint me a perfect picture on a slightly

tinted, canvas with sharp edges

to make my eyes capture the colors

that represent your hot, firey red

passion for my happiness, mixed

with the warm blue-green aura

that gives me comfort during my darkest hours...

Only my pupils

will conceive the color

that not even Crayola's named

as a result of thus unorthodox,

complimentary combination.

Plant me a beautiful seed for my

hands to feel the growth to soon come

as our souls feel each other grow deeper

into one supreme energy of

unconditional love.

Whip me up a dish my tastebuds

can savor, as I consume every bite

my vital organs will rejoice with glory

that someone cares enough

to feed them nature's best medicines.

Pour some of your favorite, finest

lavender and eucalyptus into my

vapor for my nose to inhale the

therapeutic scents that will ease

the tightest knot in my right shoulder.
