a pinch of salt
a dash of honey
teaspoon of lemon
cup of apple cider
the petals of a lotus
and a prayer as you bathe in milk
a cleansing remedy
she said to try for spirit that needs to be cleansed from all the toxicity
and you wonder how did she know these things
how did she know that the sparkle in your eyes were idle
the reasons for existing wasn’t an even number and that you have became the moonlight in every awaken nightmare…you have became the thunder in every storm…the fall before the rise…the darkness that consumes…the death before the bloom..
You will come in and see a note on the coffee table that says ‘I’ve missed you meet me on top of the balcony’ you’ll find me on top in your favorite color royal blue blending in with the dark sky stars among us shooting across the sky the 4th of July this firecracker heart beat exploding inside of me as you touch my left cheek to pull me closely say you love me let every breath taking moment remind me to cherish this…i want to remember your scent as heaven welcomes us several decades from now…remember the arches in my feet , the softness in my voice when i say your name…the tenderness in our love..a hard see you later but the pleasure of being able to fall in love again if reincarnated I’ll go through it all if i get to love you a time machine love each time better than before
before my dad’s last breath he told me about the importance of vulnerability..how important it was to love unconditionally…when I am too hard on myself and you don’t understand that I just want to be the best person not only for me but for you… could you remind me that I am a King from a king a shield sometimes unsheltered a soft temple waiting to be honored with genuine love waiting to be touch by hands that was made to fit mines… I don’t mind if you outshine because I am man enough to be proud without jealousy I am a king from a king keep reminding me… I am a king from a king that will one day produce a king keep reminding us…keep reminding us
some create through pain but not resulting into dysfunction
some things are haunting your existence
how do I learn to love you?
how could you ever love me?
I am the reason for your suffering
blame me… blame me…
Don’t tell me to my face pretend to be genuine like them…you are apart of all the misfortune but you are not a mistake…you are my lullaby the reason I cling to life…you are my daydream…no comparison to reality
your existence is the result of heartbreak but you don’t have to cause pain
lights flickering and your brown skin shouldn’t be hidden your brown skin for showing never seeing such beauty the way it forms dips and curves a king that needs to be served a king that stands by his word actions speak louder
never not knowing her true beauty the urge to seek it out of her patiently every touch upon her physique let’s paint a different picture my queen I speak louder so that you can hear me looking for your acceptance a man can go crazy standing alone on his own knowledge you keep me sane making love to you and we become one I provide the comfort that allows you to release unconsciously as if I am your safety you are safe with me…just like a cocoon you keep me safe during my developmental stages never giving up on me though at times you got weary you seen the real me …here I stand because the warmth of your heart healed me could you take the weight from my shoulders? could you love me enough that my heart overflows? Never shall I deceive nor wreck you…you are my woman I stand proud you heal my wounds and I shield you from the darkness past trauma turns to testimonies you are the scripture I’ve spoke in tongues for during prayer didn’t know what I needed now I can’t live without you
