We resemble a likeness It cannot be excused When basked in light it is bright But does not intrude Instead it is welcomed As we bathe in its hues Finding new ways to focus New ways to improve We are so much alike Were we twins in another love Were we misplaced when planning fate So being soulmates seemed only right I am not certain of what it is That draws me to you There is only one thing to take away This much is true My love and your love Both passionately attuned To the same wave at the same length My heart beats for you My resolve is strengthened Knowing your existence proves A love without... [Read the full story]

Review: Girl In The Mirror by Alix B. Golden [Paperback]

Review: Girl In The Mirror by Alix B. Golden [Paperback]

All Christen Calhoun really wants is to be a successful photographer, love a beautiful woman, and make her father proud, but easier said than done. When she graduates from Savannah State University, a dead end bank job isn’t what she had in mind. She stifles her creativity in bland business suits while her camera collects dust in the corner of her modest studio apartment. Her inability to decipher lust from love often leaves her sexually satiated, but emotionally bereft. When her soul is drained, as well as her bank account, will she take the advice of her father, Pop Calhoun, and... [Read the full story]

Re-Introducing Rebel & Rene

Re-Introducing Rebel & Rene

June 11, 2011 · 2 Comments 

I’m not easily impressed, but I was impressed from the start with her ability to captivate an audience with a unique writing style full of prose, poise, and excellent story telling. Her pen carried with it a certain grace that was evident to me, and many others by the looks of her comment section, from the start. While I tend to be long-winded in my writing, she would seemingly get straight to the point, not concerned with beating around the bush unless there was a bush that needed beating. One thing that stood out was how I would never get bored of her posts no matter how many of them I’d... [Read the full story]

Life is Good

September 3, 2014 · Leave a Comment 

I say it without reservation; that life is good. I think it with firm resolve; that life is good. There are days when I struggle to embrace life being good. Thinking back to two years ago and everything I’ve withstood. I mean, it’s made me stronger in ways I’d never imagined. How ironic this life can be, and the experiences that are fashioned, but they say you only live once. How exactly could someone filled with so much light only live once. I know that mindset is destined for disaster. She used to always say take life by the horns and ride that bull until you can’t take... [Read the full story]

The War At Home

August 20, 2014 · 1 Comment 

These moments are hard Bitter like the sweetness of lard Like the quickening of the softest sand Beneath feet as they are sinking in Tough like a soft chew cookie More precious than a bee’s sting Wondering silently, “do they despise me” In rare moments, you might ask Why they secretly shower you With music and videos And the rain of compliments Pours down all over you But the storm It’s like a buzzing bee Creeping up ever so slowly On a community unknown formerly To roughly console thee In moments of excruciating Torment all knowing How the storm does rage And folks are... [Read the full story]

Gotta Love Us

Gotta love us studs Proclaiming security while blanketed with self doubt Sucking on thighs to let the demons out Fitted with air force ones Donning button downs and button ups Cocky grins swinging from hips Checking out girls with big butts As the radio teases, watch my bois pretend not to listen too hard, pretend...

Piercing

Your energy excites me Your fire, it flames Desire all knowing as you whisper my name The curve of your lips like the shape of your frame Your skin like satin A warm soft blanket I want to be wrapped in Bound to you as pleasure ensues Like the melody of the perfect beat I have found in you And your honey so sweet As...

One Day The Distance Grew

One day the distance grew deafening Like silence when in love When all you’re left with is guessing She broke all the rules There were only a few for dating me Couldn’t resist being a rebel No emotions worn on her sleeve Instead she developed a penchant for flirting And a pattern for observing herself falling...

Voodoo Slavery

There are more slaves on the planet today than at any time in human history. Haiti has just one of the highest concentrations of slaves anywhere in the world. Are you listening? If you want to buy a person, that’ll be a hundred, possibly fifty. Dollars, that is – they’re fairly cheap and the labor’s...

Her Body

The way her body moves The gentlest breeze could not detect Quieter than a pin drop Heard millions of miles away In fact; when she walks she glides She floats like a butterfly serene and light Buffering gently against The tiniest fluffiest clouds of white Where puffy gusts of wind do whine As the needle of the pin...

Friends With Benefits

Friend with benefits Seeks filthy whore The ad may as well have read As you clicked on: read more You see, your links were chained From the very first night You knew the loving was fake But the passion was right The way she had you upright Against those walls that she tore down The friendly benefits were ripe Against...

Secrets Unfold

My secrets unfold for you, my love is on hold for you, but the passion still builds. For my heart is always true. Hearts don’t lie. You are the only woman I see. I can’t break this habit that has formed from longing. From holding you just those few times I can’t get over you. From kissing your sweet...

I’m Just Me

I’m a sensitive soul, but I often wonder if I am compassionate enough. I’m a complicated person, and my edges are a little rough. I believe that you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you. As with friendship and loyalty I’ve been an equal partner through and through. Within my family...

Cocky

He sits there all smug Button down shirt slightly Open at the top White tee underneath While to the choir he preaches Baptizing words with The sweat of his brow The sound of his voice Slightly twinged with a scowl Too young to be so sad Too old to have such High miles riding him Only child spoiled From birth both parents Mother...

Mr. Fix Her Up

How can we work on fixing us When you are being worked on By Mr. Fix Her Up Distracting my attempts To fuel the fire that rushes The blaze it rages Inside I am suffering You say not to focus On the wrong song buffering When what’s standing in my way Has been a long time coming Mid-February was the first time The...

A Nation Of Malcolm’s

A nation of Malcom’s Ex themselves and make messes felt Out of the game of life Victory is often curtailed By the mainstreaming and disbelieving Through mind controlled music and videos Saluting video vixens and videos hoes Influencing our youth while We sit back and smile Bobbing and weaving Off of distorted...

The Truth About Homosexuality

Homosexuality is a choice The soul makes before birth It has nothing to do with Your souls actual worth We are all worthy in our physical life Blood genes and brain matter aside It is our hearts that matter most What we project from the inside The heart of a gay man Or that of a lesbian is identical to A heterosexual It...

Love Lessons

My butterflies are madly in love In a chaotic moment All it takes is her touch And the brush of her lips Against mine are enough To ruffle all of my feathers Until my peacock comes undone Oh how her storm I will weather How her love I will treasure How she fills up my cup And what runneth over feels like heaven She...

I Crave A Love

I crave a love as deep as the ocean I crave what I once had What comes from unconditional loves potion What comes is the question I ask From you the deepest bluest sea forms From your almond eyes is a sea that free forms Allowing artistic honesty to be reborn Allowing love to flow like the oldest ink on cuneiform Red,...

Weapon Of Mass Pleasure

I was ashamed for at the foot of my lovers bed, none so much as a polished toe did curl, save one Bent in opposite direction The biggest of the bunch and sparing my tongue from licking upon A single sliver of golden pearl, Coating the warmth within her skin My licks danced twirls as her gently weakened legs, parlayed...

My Pulse Pounds Silently

Forward I’m normally this strong force; a guiding light that others seek. But she has awakened in this poet, a lover wanting to doggy paddle up her creek. To wade around in her deep sea. Sometimes she makes me weak, great heart skipping beats. And she does so effortlessly. I always trust my intuition, explicitly,...

Getting Over An Affair

The length of time is not measured In seconds, minutes, hours or years It could take a lifetime To alleviate the tears Of unforgotten moments Times better left Behind the scenes The direction of your soul will shift Your gears may seem all oiled one day And the next it’s as if you were never okay The pain and...
