Abrasive #Poetry

She acted as if she had thick skin

Not allowing them to see how their words stuck to her

Even though they were stamped hard against her skin

Their ink slowly began to ooze

Filling her pores

Seeping into her skin

Lacing her blood cells

Sending the putrid thoughts to her mind

Snaking around her confidence and optimism

Lacing them with venomous words

Having them play over in her mind

As a song stuck on  repeat

Not be able to fend off the cold, painful embrace

Of the hate and lies

Her light dimmed

The darkness began its feast

Release #Poetry

Arm stretched

Tea sipped

Headphones on

Beats pumping in music

She set the tone for her trance

And she embraced it

Ideas musing

Words combining

Linking together to show her creativity

She never edited herself

Letting her truth

Her soul

Pour out onto the screen

Writing is her digital therapy

Nothing before has set her free

Divided #Poetry

Eyes closed

Taking a deep breathe

Holding it in

Looking for her courage deep inside

She stood up

Letting the air out slowly

She would not allow herself to be unheard

She was against the hate speech

The violence

The killing

She would recite her words

Yell them to the heavens if she has too

Hate will never beat love

Segregation will not destroy acceptance

We are human beings should be united

Ache #Poetry

Reaching for you

Feeling nothing but air

They say air is weightless

But when you’re alone

It’s crushing

To your lungs

Heart

Mind

The space is filled with the weight of nothingness

Until in the presence of you

My lips are soaked with the words

Flowing from the solitary space in my mind

You are who I want

Need

Love

Unrest #Poetry

Her heart didn’t beat with the same excitement anymore

The sparkle in her eyes glossed over

Her soul was a target full of holes and dents

She would not allow herself to be completely shattered by this world

All the negativity

Selfishness

And hate

Her will unfurled

Engulf her broken pieces and holding them tightly together

She was strong

Her love, kindness and charity began to pull forth

She was more than this horrid confusion

She would stand for herself

And for those who aren’t able

Her voice will be hers

Filled with compassion, truth and love

She will raise her voice high

For those who need aid

She will share her humanity freely

Because the world needs to be embraced

Not ripped apart
