All We Need: a haiku

Love is all we need.
Everything else will come.
Nothing is too much.

Heartache: an acrostic poem

Heavy feelings sit on my heart
Each piece of it crumbling with despair
Are you hearing me? Are you there?
Real life hit me by surprise
Talking about it won’t help this time
All I see are tears in my eyes
Coaching me to be stronger
Heavy feelings sit on my shoulders
Emotions sitting on my soul that feel like boulders

Blackberry 

Sweeter than a cherry
Blessed with curves
& black with berries
Succulent when popped in
Juicy with just one taste
I can see the satisfaction by looking at your face
I’m your daily vitamin c
So you need to consume me everyday
Eat every bit and don’t let me go to waste

Pure

I never try to hide my feelings
They just simply don’t exist
Most times they feel like they’ve endured a whisk
Through a wiff of my confidence I see me
Simply Poetry
Embodying all the things that I need to be
Through my soul I feel free
Staying in one with the universe
& in tune with my energy
I’m practing chemistry on my spirit
Seeing what’ll cause a reaction when I look into the mirror
I stare at the moonlight to get comfort
My logic sometimes gets tossed in a bunkert
It’s my heart that needs the shelter
& no matter what weather I endure
My heart, soul, and spirit will remain pure

Clarity

I’ve gained some clarity since you left me
Our memories haunt me on lonely nights
Nothing felt worse than those lonely fights
I would yearn for you
And then you’d turn away
I would send out cries
Thinking you would stay
We were on a mission to love one another
But you approached our love with a stutter
You didn’t want this
With every kiss I felt something was missing
Your smile didn’t glisten like it used to
I see now what our lust was all about
It’s a sad destination what our love has come to
