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

August 20, 2012 · 11 Comments 

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]

The Stud With The Butterfly Tattoo

March 14, 2015 · Leave a Comment 

Chapter 1 I was propped up on my lazy boy Comfortable reclining chewing raw almonds when she re-entered the room, smiling Her bottom lip, biting Her silence was deafening and suddently I felt consumed stuffy and diffused as her gaze scanned the whole of the vestibule Until she focused on my face “The pretty lady has returned,” I said stifling a chuckle Hiding the uncomfortable I didn’t understand Why she felt certain to make dramatic and stormy exists Always purse in hand Loved to make her presence felt Wanted more of my crescent self She said, “I made it all the way to... [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

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]

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...

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

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’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...
