Happy Valentine’s Day and a Poem


1414109_13630179

Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that I swear every year that I won’t make a big deal about because I believe in telling those you care about that you love them everyday …. yet each year I get caught up in the moment.

What can I say? There’s love in the air, and I love that.

I’d like to repost a poem I wrote five years ago (dedicated to my husband) for fresh viewing in the spirit of love (and just in case he’s forgotten):

You Are The Reason Why I Feel Loved. You Are The One.

 

You are –
The reason I laugh
The reason I cry
When facing tough paths
You’re the reason I try

You are the reason.

You are –

Why I feel I can make it
Why I feel I can do it
Why I feel I can take it
Like there’s nothing to it

You are why I feel.

You are –

Loved when you’re sleeping
Loved when we’re walking
You are loved when I’m angry
And silent – so keep talking

You are loved.

You are –

The one moon of my night
The one half of my soul
The one thing in my life
That can make me feel whole

You are the one.

Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

Daddy’s Day

Every year my Daddy complains that fathers never get the kind of attention on Father’s day that moms get on Mother’s day. I usually laugh at him. Because I spoil him on Father’s day. He’s gotten rings, video cameras, DVD players, taken out to his favorite restaurants, gift certificates, massages, mp3 players, etc. I would usually respond like, “Whatchutalkinbout Daddy?”

So let me do something for my father today that I have never done before. Write an online tribute!  

Dad, you are truly a man like no other. A role model for your son, a faithful husband to my mother. You ensure that our family supports one another. You are a hard working man, and a proud black brother.

Your deeply rooted faith makes you a man who can not break. There’s no way to clearly state how much that I appreciate the things you do, the stuff you take, all just for your family’s sake. A great example – you do make.


You stay strong and optimistic no matter what is thrown your way. You kiss freely, you hug tightly, you laugh aloud and you play. You say you miss me, that you love me and for me you say you pray. I don’t pray so often, but I’m grateful for you every day.


You’re the one who always tells me “You can do it. Yes you can”. You are the very standard I uphold to every man. Your generosity is absolutely greater than anyone I know. And I know no greater man.

 

Happy Father’s Day, Dad. I love you.

 

You Are The Reason Why I Feel Loved. You Are The One.

This poem is dedicated to my husband. I thank God and your momma for this day. This day that you were born. 

Happy Birthday my love.


You are
The reason I laugh
The reason I cry
When facing tough paths
You’re the reason I try

You are the reason.

You are –

Why I feel I can make it
Why I feel I can do it
Why I feel I can take it
Like there’s nothing to it

You are why I feel.

You are –

Loved when you’re sleeping
Loved when we’re walking
You are loved when I’m angry
And silent – so keep talking

You are loved.

You are –

The one moon of my night
The one half of my soul
The one thing in my life
That can make me feel whole

You are the one.

Divorce! (A Song)

Due to time constraints, unfortunately there is not a new completed graphic short story this week. Expect to see one next week, though!

I would like to share this funny song I wrote a couple years ago for no good reason. PLEASE NOTE that it is just a song and in no way reflects my real life! My husband has not been busted acting up and we are certainly not discussing a divorce!

However, whenever he is getting on my nerves, I do often sing the chorus to him! Ha! Please don’t ask me to sing it for you all, though. Trust me, I can write songs waaaaay better than I can sing them.

 

I am unhappy with you
Wish you did what you used to
Hate the shit that you do, do
Wonder why I said I DO

You used to say that you love me
You’d put no one else above me
Now you don’t even hug me
Or even stop to think of me

When I speak you don’t hear me
I feel no love when you’re near me
There’s no comfort when I’m teary
And you’re always gone…SO THAT’S WHY WE ARE

(CHORUS 2x)
We’re gonna get a divorce!
You and me we, are through!
I am so done, with you!
Doo-doo Doo Doo Doo-doo!

Tired of all of your lies
Done with all of my cries
This relationship I now despise
You’ve used up all of our tries

I’m not taking no more, now
Go on out with your whore, now
Don’t have to sneak out the door, now
Just don’t come back no more, now

Didn’t have to confess, I just know
Now you know that I know, so just go
And I was faithful to you, though
And you’re so wrong…SO THAT’S WHY WE ARE

(CHORUS 2X)
We’re gonna get a divorce!
You and me we, are through!
I am so done, with you!
Doo-doo Doo Doo Doo-doo!

Us

My five fingers
Over yours
On your hand
On my leg

Your warm palm
On my hips
On my side
On your bed

My moist mouth
And my tongue
On your lips
On your face

Your quick breath
And my breath
They both pant
Our hearts race

Got goose bumps
On my skin
On my thigh
From your touch

The strong vibe
In your eyes
Tell me, you
Want me much

The heat of
Your smooth flesh
Makes my
Temperature hot

You’re rock hard
In my fist
Your voice groans
Please don’t stop

All your clothes
My black dress
Our restraints
Are now undone

Between sheets
You in me
At last we
Become one

To Pieces


I may not often say it
‘Cause I swear you always know
Can’t see how you could miss it
You make me smile. Laugh. Glow.
You walk by – I touch you
Stay away too long – I seek you
When saying goodbye, I walk you out
And assume you sense that I need you
Even though I know you’ll laugh
At my random thinking of you
I wanna say, I love you to pieces
And I place no one above you

 

No Big Deal

Not like that. That’s not how I should have discovered.
Unsuspecting. Spectator. Justification.
But when confronted with evidence that I’d just uncovered,
Embarrassment. Bafflement. Fabrication.

You lied.

You looked right at me and you lied.

I don’t care about your old bitches.
I’m more concerned about failed tries to hide.
Random hoes from the past don’t even get me tripping
Half as much as purposeful present day lies.

You say it is old. No big deal.
So silly of me to have cried.

But you lied.

The fact of the matter is you lied.

You told me that you could never lie to me.
But if that was a lie, which truth should I ever believe?
You tell me that it’s the same. It’s not the same.
I had told you we should end it. Even told you his name.

I have never, ever, while looking into your eyes
Flat out lied. Just plain lied.

No big deal, you describe it.
That was nothing. No need to shout.
The nothing, must mean something to you…
You left something for me to learn nothing about!

Ancient drama – irrelevant long time.
You say “forget about it”. And I tried.

But you lied.

How can you be true to me when you lied?
