Source: Maryneart/Instagram The noise of death filled the air as he reloaded, groan after groan, clip after clip and screams exploded, filling rooms where music no longer induced dance movement and lively gyration, the floor became a death bed of bloody damnation, spilling out and filling spaces where I saw myself in the eyes of the black and brown faces he felt so comfortable being amongst, before destroying trust once again in humanity’s ability to love without judgement. I see myself in each and every one of them. But I remain silent with my hands up, helpless in a country where to be... [Read the full story]

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]

What I Long For

May 28, 2016 · Leave a Comment 

What I long for… is forever. No screaming mantras at broken hearts severed. No wondering if the here and now will last forever. No doubtful mind sets or broken promises. When you feel disconnect, its discontent that’s setting in. But don’t allow it to. Instead know that I respect your prowess and the cultivated intellect we pursue. And there are times when like you, I don’t understand it too. Now let me clear up some things before continuing. Do not apologize for expressing your feelings. No matter what my reaction may be we’re all entitled to what we think. To come to... [Read the full story]

Your Imperfections Are What Make You Beautiful

Don’t be afraid Of your imperfections That one tiny hair growing Under your chiny chin chin Only you see any perceived Ugliness taking root in When all I see is someone Beautiful and soothing The rest is all moot I see you stress about nothing Hairy situations you bump in to Tweezers reached for To pluck and...

Love and Conspiracy Theories

The news is no longer news worthy to me. Constantly torn by subjective images on TV. Black lives matter while black on black crime staggers and the state of the economy and inflation continues to lose swagger. School campuses cleared when students go on killing sprees and unstable couples hunted through multiple states...

It’s Not What You Think

Before you know it The illusion will be gone No acapella – Just bars on this one song Are the Illuminati – Satan’s all-stars? Your favorite celebrities – Are they all pawns The Industry – Is it too far gone Do you really have a clue Are you just a chess piece on the board walk You do what...

She Doesn’t Love You

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before, she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being...

Anatomy of a Broken Heart

There are different stages of heartbreak. I’m about two months deep into my break-up and I have experienced almost all of them. First there’s shock, especially if you are the dumped. Then there’s the refusal to believe that you weren’t enough, followed by some combination of depression, anger and loneliness;...

Shambala

I am floating up I am so high Fresh peaks of fluffy Shapely and toned round thighs I see beautiful peaks painting Brushes of silky smooth Skin against mine Leaving a trail of the wettest ale You are the epitome of fine wine Your essence takes me away Melts me like snow In Springtime Tongue tasting Of sunshine Love...

Limitless

I sit and wait and pine For words that never come Momentary happiness has come undone No turning back but shadows of the past do hunt Lies and deceit over the smallest things corrupt But no one is perfect, I wouldn’t be fooling anyone That love was pure from day one The passion ripe for a future of Happy days...

Dear Ex Girlfriend

As I gazed at the brightly lit but slowly darkening sky, I couldn’t help but be awed at the double irony of the situation. Last year, I managed to convince myself that to live without her would be an absolute travesty. It was in complete opposition to my every desire and so I fought with lovelorn shield and sword...

Eyes Wide Open II

5th Verse The next one to catch my fancy Sapped me like an oak tree Macked me like ODB She was the type to bring alive And then stomp all over your dreams But she was mine and I was hers Placed myself on a shelf She did not deserve With access to my dreams They went completely undeterred She inspired others with her...

Eyes Wide Open

Prelude Tiny cutouts of affection All ripped up and shredded Stored in boxes of occupants Housed in journals and writing tips A poet’s journey begins With a first kiss I made you privy to it My collaborative compilations extracted in bits 1st Verse Nancy was not shy, I was totally convinced of this Secretive...

Maximum Overdrive

I can hack into your world Hook up my laptop Start up your drop top Take you for a swirl Speed you up and down the highway I can even tighten your seatbelt So you can’t make a quick escape I control everything Red pill – Blue pill I can make a canary sing To get to you girl It’s called gang stalking It’s...

What She Does To Me

You stir the universe To a whirling frenzy Sounds like my heart beats When your thoughts reach me Like a dandelion unphased Until touched by an angel wing Pollen goes soaring Your light is pouring Oh so heavily Down it comes like a rain cloud All the while sun’s still out Your love is just… that profound Your...

On Stupid Stuck

The truth is nearly impossible to swallow Something as big as the biggest heartbeat God ever made belongs to a blue whale Then try to explain just how futile it is to become To be nubile in a world as distasteful as ours is young Love mistaken for abuse, ignorance mistaken for mere youth In the body of a 60 year old...

Ode to Teachers

This one goes out to every child That didn’t have parents To properly groom To every teacher Who stays after class for hours Locked in his classroom For every principle whose sensible And invests in her students success For every superintendent who cares enough about his district To Never Settle for Less For...

Let Me Catch You

Girl I’ll sweep you off your feet But I can’t catch you with broken wings Or heal your fractured heart You might deserve better than me Look at how proud you are I sense all your stubborn smarts Comes from somewhere soft and hard A time line that at times hides long forgotten scars Girl I’ll sweep...

Hidden In Plain Sight

The truth is backwards They say it’s stranger than fiction Hey, whatever works Against the current, we swim Strokes of Falsified Records, and Stolen Status Quos, They all float downstream Resting on lakes no paddler knows Beliefs contained in a system Organized by intelligent men Derived as a way to conceal inadequacy...

Spirituality and Hip-Hop: State of Affairs

I see the problem with these rappers today Constantly bragging about a payday Money rules while consciousness is booed Stuck in a state of confused melee This culture of mixed races Sea of Brown faces Different ethnicities create the beat the universal drum makes That drum drums right into us the need to focus on...

Soul Traveler

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 life Were we misplaced when planning fate So being soulmates seemed only right I...
